An explanation of the $50 surcharge for each additional dog...
At WMA camps, we don't believe in closet dogs! Every dog, working or "non working", is part of the group and welcome to enjoy the camp. You may certainly switch dogs between sessions (not within sessions, please), and choose which dog to work in which session.
We keep these camps small, and we turn down a lot of money to do so! I think you'll appreciate that we don't let a small canine working group accidentally become a large canine social unit. Camps here afford you as much work as you want without being crowded. The result is low stress for people and dogs.
No individual will be allowed to participate without a SIGNED WAIVER (located on your camp's registration form).
Please send your dog's Veterinary Information Form (for EACH dog you are bringing), signed by your veterinarian, with your balance of payment. Download (Acrobat PDF file) :
