Dog Rules and Safety:
All dogs must be on a 6 foot or shorter leash at all times. Please do not feed your dog for 90 minutes before or after the Dog Jog to help prevent bloat (twisting of stomach, a potentially fatal problem). Also, no bicycles, roller blades, or skateboards as many dogs react unpredictably around these methods of transportation. Wheelchairs and baby strollers are welcome. Children under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult, although the adult does not have to register. You do not need to have a dog to join in the fun!
