    I saw an ad for this yesterday and thought to myself, "That's not right, Woofstock is during the summer..." LOL Anyways I'm contemplating going. Considered entering one or both the boys in the beauty pageant hehehe

    Very cool!

    Nilly, if you've been before, would it be something I'd want to bring Quinn to? I mean I know you can bring your dog, but I've never been before and I don't know how chaotic it would be! The idea is really growing on me though, I'd love to meet you and anyone else going, and of course do some shopping!

    This is the first winter/ indoor woofstock. No one has been to it before. Knowing the size of the direct energy centre, and knowing the one of a kind show is running in there at the same time so each is taking up half the space, I assume it will be busy.

    Lot of people will have poorly behaved dogs.. might have DA and DR issues.. Any other indoor show has a no pets policy to the general public. I hope it goes well for them, it is awesome you can take your pet, but if it goes poorly they may have to rethink it for future.

    Really? Here, any pet show, indoors or outdoors, you can bring your dogs. We have never had an issue here, even with the amount of dogs, rabbits, cats, and ferrets.

    All of them here that are big like the all about pets show won't let the general public bring theirs same with the sportsman show and the royal. As a vendor you can, but if buying a ticket doesn't matter how you beg or ask.

    Honestly? I don't it's fair to bring a lot of the dogs I see at regular Woofstock with the heat and how busy it is with other poorly behaved dogs, etc. I think it's a really bad idea to bring dogs to a busy INDOOR show, and am confused that it's being allowed just because it's "Woofstock".

    LOTS of people, LOTS of dogs, and most dogs are poorly behaved and on flexi leads that aren't locked. I would NOT recommend bringing a dog, if you want my opinion.

    I'm so glad I posted this, thank you all! Definitely doesn't sound like it would be a good experience for Quinn, which is what I was afraid of. I'll see if I can get a someone to look after her, if not, we'll just stay home :)
