REGISTRATION:
This is the first “Official” mini UpDog competition in Texas, where teams can earn official UpDog points toward the 2018 (2017 season) UPDIF. You will need to register your human/canine teams online with the UpDog Challenge organization prior to attending. Please print your team information and bring it with you to the comp in order to register for the individual events and receive qualifier points.

HOUSEKEEPING: of course, we all know to pick up after our pups’ poop. But also:
LEASH YOUR DOGS:
We will be strictly enforcing the leash laws at this event. No dogs off leash if not performing, even if your dog is friendly. Not everyone wants your friendly dog running up to them or their dog (who may or may not be friendly).

REACTIVE DOGS:
Disc Dogging is one of the few sports that dogs who “might not like other dogs” can play in. If you have a reactive dog, please let us know ahead of time, before you take the field. We will make an announcement and ALL other participants will be asked to put their dogs away in a secure place – crates, cars, etc… This is so that all dogs and their humans can play in a safe environment.
Thank you for your cooperation ahead of time – FDDA
