The Lilac Mutt Strut will take place rain or shine. Dogs should keep their people on a leash at all times or will not be allowed in Lilacia Park. All friendly, well-behaved dogs are welcome. Only you know your dog’s temperament and social limitations. If your dog does not get along well with other dogs, or gets nervous in large crowds of people, perhaps he or she would have more fun at home. For the health of your pet, we request that only dogs who are up-to-date on their vaccinations attend. These vaccinations should include rabies, kennel cough and distemper. All dogs must be spayed or neutered and leashed at all times. There is a two dog per registered adult limit. All participating dog(s) must be at least 6 months of age. Participants and dogs must be in condition to participate. At the discretion of the Run Directors, pets whose behavior is unruly or may prove hazardous to participants, other pets, or spectators will be requested to leave.
