Bring your dog!

We love our German Shepherd Chloe, so you are more than welcome to bring your dog!

 

We just ask that you make a donation on entry which we pass onto Adelaide Pets Alive! - This is a new animal re-homing organisation. Their mission is to end pet euthanasia and homelessness. And guess what - this organisation was also founded by some nurses too! 

 

Your dog must remain on a lead at all times, be friendly and remains entirely your responsibility. We will not take ANY responsibility for your dog. If you’re bringing your fury friend make sure you pick up after them - if our dog did something in your backyard.. we'd pick it up!
