This is a great event and fun for everyone. They are very accomodating to our dogs and will have us in a shaded area with a water source. If hot, they will allow us into the school gym with A/C for a cooling off station. GLIWA will be asked to give a 5 minute talk on stage regarding our hounds (I'll provide that schedule when available).

Letter to organizations that request our Irish Wolfhounds participate in their events 

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

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

* Irish Wolfhounds don't do very well in the extreme heat. 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.
