He will usually stay with me if I have treats and call his name, but I didn't want to cause any problems with the other dogs, as some dogs might be resource guarders.

I am working on recall, I really am, it's just sloooow going and not going to be fixed in two months :(
Honestly, with this park you wouldn't be causing trouble. Almost everyone has toys and treats because no one is just standing around and moving. I can't remember the last time I went without treats or a toy! I know that's like the law at some parks, but not this one with the way it's set up!

Also, I don't know if it helps at all but on one side of the path is water (no where to go) 80% of the timevand the other side, the path is kinda sheltered, so dogs tend to not wander off that easily because of the way it's configured.

Always your call but I don't want you not coming if it's as simple as bringing treats!

I always have treats on me...

You would not cause any trouble by bringing treats...all the dogs may really like you though :D

Like Linds mentioned the path we walk is often bordered on one side by water and the other side by dense vegetation... When we stop is is usually for the dogs to play at small beaches.

Ohhhhh....... I actually have nothing planned for that weekend. O.O

I'd probably bring the puppy and one of the dobes... maybe Kaylee, she's got the best recall.

DARN IT NOW I'M TEMPTED.

IF I come, I'd probably have to share a hotel with someone especially since I'll need $40 just to get my dogs into the park!

I hope I can swing this, guys. It'll be SO much fun, and a great experience for Seren. :)

Right now, I'm tentatively saying YES.

However... what do I do about rabies tag for Seren? She won't have Rabies vax by then, so no tag. o_O

Okay okay if I can bring treats...I'll just keep working extra hard on recall and see what happens. I want to go so badly and meet everyone and all their cool dogs.

Maybe Finn will see all these awesome dogs playing with their owners in public and he will be jealous and start doing it./wishful thinking

It's official, I'm coming. Bringing Kaylee and Seren. Apparently 15 week old Ibizan Hounds are like malinois puppies at this age, so I don't foresee her having trouble keeping up. ;)

I'm rooming with a Chaz lurker who is coming down with Icies.... soo.... you all should come. :)

Okay, put me down as a definite!

We'll be leaving after Cory gets off work on Thursday, so we'll be there about 1 AM Friday morning. Not sure what we're doing for hotel yet, but we'll figure that out. We'll spend all Friday, Saturday, and part of Sunday there.

What are everyone else's plans? Is anyone meeting up on Friday and Sunday?

Wooohooo!!

Ok, convinced Sizzle and Paige to come. Who do I need to tackle next?

I'll be here all three days :p So if anyone wants to do anything any of them I'll be up for it. And weather permitting we'll have a BBQ at my house after on Saturday with Beer Frisbee!
