Air Dog participants will enter the grounds as outlined above for all vendors. You may arrive during load in times of Thursday 12-4, Friday 12-4 and Saturday between 7am-9am. For those that have a tent and crate, you may drive up to the pool area for drop off during that time. Once drop off has been completed, your vehicle must be moved to the parking area. Dogs MUST be leashed or crated at all times and may only stay in the show area, or back to your vehicle. They cannot enter the buildings nor walk through the food court.

Each dog comes with 1 admission ticket to the show, which you will receive a wristband for. Everyone else in your part MUST have a ticket and MUST enter through the main gate. If they arrive with you for setup, those people must be driven to the front gate for re-entry. Anyone in the participant area without a wristband will be asked to leave.
