Letter to organizations that request our  

 Irish Wolfhounds to participate in their events 

 Due to the many requests we receive, we have found that there are some requirements we need to make the event a successful experience for all.

 *Irish Wolfhounds don't do very well in the extreme heat, most importantly we need adequate shade and water.

 *Wolfhounds are considered one of the largest breeds, we require a larger area to set up.

*Since we are a not-for-profit club, we would appreciate it if your organization offered a donation for attending. We like to reimburse our members for any expenses,  plus it helps to keep our club successful.

*We carry a substantial insurance policy that is required by most events.

*A small table to set out our literature. 

 *When we receive a request for an event, we will need the date, times,  and any other information that is relevant.
