Again this year...We are taking the chill out of the water! We are bringing in a heater to warm up the water a bit so it is more comfortable for the dogs and the humans.
If you have pets or just love animals and great entertainment then don’t miss the WBAY Pet Expo! Shopko Hall will be packed with exhibitors, rescue organizations, and animals of all kinds. Education, entertainment and shopping all under one roof. It’s the place to be for the whole family! Pets are welcome, must sign a waiver and be on a leash.
Crating - There will be a designated crating area for dogs competing in Pier Pups. Pets are allowed in the expo, provided they are on a 6' leash, NO RETRACTABLE LEASHES.
What to Bring - We suggest that you bring your dog's favorite floating toy, food and water, treats, collar and leash, towels for drying off, blankets, and crate. Even though this event is indoors, we might also suggest that you bring a change of clothes for yourself and perhaps a coat for your dog since we could still have winter weather in Wisconsin and it can be cold especially when you're wet. This year we will be running a propane heater prior to the event starting, but the water may still be a bit cooler than in summer. Blankets, extra towels and crate covers will help to keep your dog warm. There is electricity in the crating area if you want to bring a dryer to dry your dog.

Try-its: Try-its will be allowed as space permits and during Splashes if no competitors are waiting to jump. Try-its cost $10.00 for two Try-it tickets, and each ticket gives you 3 minutes on the dock. These tickets may be used on any day of the competition, as space permits. You do not need to register in advance for Try-its. Try-its give you the opportunity to see if your dog is interested in the sport or allows dogs to practice their skills. Friday and Sunday will have the best opportunities for Try-its.
