Guidelines For Reserved/Unreserved Grooming Space

  • Grooming areas are offered and designed for the con­ve­nience of all exhibitors.
  • Any dogs left overnight are the express respon­si­bility of the exhibitor/agent. Con­tact infor­ma­tion must be present and clearly vis­ible. The Caledon Kennel Asso­ci­a­tion assumes no lia­bility in this regard.
  • All crates, equip­ment, chairs, etc., must remain within the limits of des­ig­nated space.
  • Plastic (not pro­vided by the Caledon Kennel Asso­ci­a­tion) must be used under and up the sides of all exer­cise pens. Please plan accord­ingly; this will be strictly mon­i­tored for compliance.
  • Exhibitors are expected to keep their space clean or The Inter­na­tional Centre will clean it and bill the exhibitor.
  • Fire Lanes/Aisles must be kept clear.
  • All dogs must be exer­cised in the exer­cise pens pro­vided for that pur­pose. Exhibitors are liable for all costs related to cleaning or damage caused by a dog(s) under their con­trol. Failure to exer­cise appro­priate dili­gence may results in a loss of show privileges.
  • No com­mer­cial activity may occur within any space without the express per­mis­sion of the Caledon Kennel Asso­ci­a­tion Show Chairs. Exhibitors are wel­come to have sig­nage on pens or crates indi­cating which breed they have on display.
  • Sig­nage is not allowed on the walls of The Inter­na­tional Centre. If required, please see the Caledon Kennel Asso­ci­a­tion at their booth to obtain the approved sig­nage appli­ca­tion material.
  • Space is lim­ited. Please keep x-pens to a min­imum. X-pens will not be allowed during show hours.
  • On Sunday, November 26, 2017, the space must by vacated within 1 hour fol­lowing Best in Show.
  • All Dog Show Rules and Reg­u­la­tions of the CKC and the Caledon Kennel Asso­ci­a­tion will apply to the Reserved Grooming Areas. Exhibitors will be expected to accept space as assigned and keep it clean or this priv­i­lege may be withdrawn.

Unre­served spaces will be avail­able on a first-come, first-served basis.
