  • No retractable leashes – we’ll be happy to provide ROMP Leashes to help you out in case you don’t have one which you can find in the FOM tent.
  • All dogs, no matter size, breed or temperament MUST BE ON LEASH!
  • The only instance a dog can be off leash is during Lure Course or Agility while in the fenced area.
  • Please pick up after your dog(s), waste bags can be found at the FOM tent.
  • If your dog(s) displays aggressive behavior, FOM will ask you to leave – this is for everyone’s safety.
  • Estabrook Beer Garden features beers imported from the Munich Hofbräuhaus. All beer is served in the appropriate 1/2 Liter or Full Liter heavy glass mug. A $5 refundable deposit is required for the use of a mug.
