May I bring my dog?
It is certainly not your pet’s heart’s desire to spend the day in an exhibition hall and to witness your negotiations. If possible, do not take your dog to the PADDLEexpo. If it is better to bring the dog after considering the alternatives, then that’s fine. Please DO NOT LOCK your dog in the car. Please lead your dog on a short leash at all time.
