After breakfast, we will meet in the ballroom and head out to Pooch Park in the Pines to allow the dogs to run wild and have fun. The park will be closed to the public. This year, we will be having a Barn Hunt for the dogs. It's lots of fun and the dogs really enjoy it. Please do not bring any balls or toys as this can cause a stir up. Make sure you have your Pooch Park Acknowlegement and Release of Liability form filled out as well as an application. All dogs must be current on their vaccinations. You must bring records of curent vaccinations including bordatella. If your dog gets titers, you must present a note from your vet. The dog park is available to us from 9 am to 1 pm. Directions will be provided. Please go to their website to get the applications and familiarize yourself with the rules and regulations. Their website is: www.ppipdogpark.com

After the Pooch Park, we head out to the Ironwood Cafe for lunch with the dogs. Because of the size of our group, we will have several sittings. You will be asked to sign up for your lunch time preference before the event. After lunch, you will have some time to explore the town and relax a little before we have a special show.
