My name is Kim and my dogs name is Beau. He is a 1.5yr old golden retrever. We will competing in both distance and super air.

Hey, Kim. We did it last year and loved it! Planning on being there this year too. Been trying to find plans for or someone who sells the vertical extender pole so we can practice for that, but it's been an elusive item.
Hope to see you there. We have border collies (but are also golden retriever people at heart too).
Make sure you bring some kind of shade (EZ Up or similar) and a crate or ex-pen for your dog to rest in between splashes, and a chair for you. The crating area was under the oaks in Bartram Park, but the sun still comes through at different times of the day. You're going to have a blast (and so will your goldie!).
Does anyone know when the online registration will be opened?
Thank you for the advice Beth and thank you Muddy paws I wish I could.

Hi to all~
We are thinking of entering our dog for the first time at the event. My only question is she has a lickgranuloma on her front leg. Right now we have to keep her leg wrapped with vet wrap to keep her from licking it. Does anyone think that this will be a problem? Thanks so much for the advice! Look forward to see you all!

Probably not, but a quick call to your vet to make sure is what I'd do.

I assume since this is wrapped that this is an open wound and if that is the case your pup would not be allowed to jump. This is actually for the safety of your pet and others.
Call your vet. If it's not something that could not spread to another dog get a note from him stating so. He might say it's best not to get wet. I don't know their rules. This is my first time entering. I wish you luck and the best for your dog.

We have been battling the lickglamuloma with Bailey for 2 years. She has seen numerous vets and no can seem to cure her. It's such a shame because she is a beautiful, smart dog and I think that she would be great at being a "dock dog". It's is so frustrating to see her do this to her self and lose a chance to have alot of fun at the event.Lickglamuloma is not contagious, it is pretty much a mental disorder that makes her lick her leg till she starts a wound and then she keeps licking it . Well anyway thanks for the answers to our questions and I hope you guys have a great event.

Have you tried her on Clomicalm?? If not, it might be worth a shot.

She's on a half a pill once a day right now and she's been on that for awhile but it dosen't seem to stop the problem---believe me we have tried everything from a Ruff Tuff bandage to a Vet even injecting Cobra venom(what ever that was going to do I don't know).Thanks for the suggestion!

Yeah, the problem, if it's a wet wound is not so much a contagion problem to the other dogs, but a bacterial issue for her. She could pick up something in the pool, as the dogs are in and out all weekend, taking potential nasties from the ground in with them. I have a friend with a Golden that had a similar problem with his feet. They did all kind of tests for allergies and such and just couldn't find a problem. It's often an anxiety or boredom issue that causes them lick - sort of a displacement behavior.

Bailey's leg is in the process of healing now (last week and a half we have been successful in keeping her away from it without her cone). I think we are going to leave her home and bring one of our other labs. Lucky for you guys because I think Bailey would have been a real contender for all the dogs in the event LOL. Does any one have a way to contact Tony?
Try contacting Sassygirl.

BTW - I think you are a wonderful parent and this dog is very lucky to have you.
