Hi there are a few fields that do not allow pets ( but I have seen small type dogs in them) but many do allow pets. Hertan's does allow pets and if you are there there is a water dish for pets on the right side of the patio. The hose can also fill your own dish.
Our cat was one of 3 on a leash in the Hertan's field. Yes you will have to have any pet on a leash or in one of those carriers.
Are there any shows that will allow a dog that is being carried to enter/attend? I am planning to attend the May 09 event and booked a hotel that allows pets; however, I want to determine which shows we can or can not attend.
