Dog PAWty Schedule & Activity Registration-

How to Register Your Pet for an Event or Contest

  • You must have ONE registration/waiver form completed for EACH dog that attends (even if not entering a contest) the WSCR Community Dog PAWty.
  • Registration forms will be available on site, but don’t wait in long lines to register. You can download and print your registration here (link to be added).
  • Fill out each form completely and be sure to sign (must be signed by an adult over 18 years of age).
  • Bring your completed form to the REGISTRATION table to get your activity and contest tickets.
  • You will receive one ticket for each activity/contest per dog.
  • If you are entering any of the contests, you must register at least 30 minutes prior to the relevant contest.
  • The contests are limited to 12 participants each, so entries are accepted on a first come, first served basis.

ONGOING EVENTS from 12:00 to 4:00 PM:

The “Bark Yard”, a Pop Up Off Leash Dog Park:

  • An opportunity for you and your dog(s) to come to a fenced, outdoor area to socialize with other dogs, and other people.
  • If your dog is up to date on their vaccinations/titers, is not displaying any symptoms (i,.e. kennel cough, diarrhea etc.), is not “in heat” and does not/has not displayed aggressive behaviour, he/she is welcome to attend.
  • All dog owners must supervise their dog at all times – so you can’t leave him/her in the play area and take a look at the booths.
  • Each dog owner is responsible for picking up after their dog if necessary, and intervening if there are any behavioural issues. You may be asked to remove your dog from the event if there are conflicts between your dog and other people/dogs.
  • ***Very important – do not feed your own dog, or any other dog, while you are in the play area. This may trigger aggression in some dogs.
  • The number of dogs inside the Bark Yard at one time may be limited.

The Roving Rover Photographer in the Red Cap:

  • Our roving photographer will take a complimentary Polaroid photo of your Rover, and/or take a picture using your cell phone. Please post your pictures on our Facebook page, or on Instagram using #wscrdogpawty and tag us @wscrca.

Bobbing for Hot Dogs:

  • A version of “bobbing for apples” for Fido. See if your dog can nab those hot dog pieces out of the water! Did you know that hot dogs do NOT float? Start practicing now with your pooch so they can dive for those delicious snacks!

It’s true what they say: the longer we hang around with a certain someone, the more likely it is that we’ll begin to resemble them, and as much as this “look-alike” phenomenon applies to old married couples, science says it also includes people and their dogs!

The audience will vote for their favourite dog on their phones.
