Releasers / Catchers

A releaser AND catcher are required for each run. Please bring both a catcher AND releaser with you. While there may be volunteers onhand to assist those without both, it's not a requirement and is purely a courtesy. If you haven't brought someone to assist you and there are no volunteer releasers/catchers available, ask around to see if you might share these duties with someone else. Who knows, you might make a new best friend in doing so!
It's critical to know your dog and whether or not they are comfortable with a potential stranger either releasing or catching them and also if you would be comfortable helping someone else, if you choose to do so. This applies to large and small dogs as well as all breeds! The last thing anyone wants is for an injury to occur due to a nervous or reactive dog. This is YOUR responsibility!
