A special word of warning for these events. Rattlesnakes have been spotted on the grounds where these events take place. While those in charge of the events make every effort to hold them at a time when rattle snakes are less likely to be active they still may be present. Participants are encouraged to be very vigilant for their safety and the safety of the dogs involved.
