This is a Canadian Association of Rally Obedience (CARO) sanctioned trial that will be held under CARO rules and regulations. Through submission of their entry, the Competitor acknowledges that they have read and understand the CARO rules and regulations.

All dogs must have a CARO registration number in order to compete. This registration should be applied for in advance of the trial.

It is expressly understood that exhibitors alone are responsible for the behaviour of their dogs and/or children. Any exhibitor whose dogs and/or children create unnecessary disturbances or engages in unsafe, disruptive, or aggressive behaviour may be asked to leave the show grounds; no refunds will be given.

An officiating Judge, and/or the Chairperson of the trial, may dismiss from the trial site any person subjecting the Judge, or members, or the organizing committee to abuse, whether that person is competing in the trial or not.

Prong collars, choke chains, e-collars,  and other similar devices are not permitted on the property at any time.

Vaccines for all dogs on premise must be up to date (annuals, rabies and Bordetella). Proof will be required to be submitted prior to being accepted into the trial. We will also accept titres performed by your veterinarian within the last year or a vet letter if your pet is not able to be vaccinated due to medical illness.

Extendible leashes are not permitted on site, without exception. Dogs must be leashed when not in the ring.

All dogs must be secured (doors closed) in a pen, crate or vehicle, when left unattended.

Female dogs in heat are not permitted on site.

Dogs that engage in disruptive barking or whining should be crated in a vehicle, if you know your dog will react to people/dogs walking by please park where people do not walk. 

Clean, dry indoor shoes must be worn inside the building. For safety purposes, all outdoor, wet, or soiled shoes must be either placed in a leak proof bag and kept with the competitor at their crating location, or stored on the racks provided.

Refunds will only be issued if the dog is unable to compete for medical reasons, a veterinary note must be provided. The Trial Secretary must be notified before the trial closure date.

Preliminary running orders will be emailed to competitors one week before the trial. Any required changes to the running order must be reported to the Trial Secretary immediately. Final running orders will be emailed, the Wednesday before the trial.

Move-Ups: Please advise the Trial Secretary by email at least 5 days prior to the event of any level move-ups. Same day move-ups will be allowed for any remaining runs at the titled level, if the next level is being offered and there is time available.

Awards: If your dog earns a title please write your information on the Titles Achieved Record sheet located at the registration desk.
