The event takes place at the Ned Brown Meadow in Busse Woods. This is accessed from the Golf Road entrance to the park. If you enter Ned Brown Meadow into your GPS, you will find us. If you enter Busse Woods, you’ll be sent to the wrong park entrance. Once you enter off Golf Road, stay to your left. We’ll be checking people in at the 2nd shelter on your left. Watch for our sign. Maps of the location and route will be available soon. Please note that our route is not part of the paved paths. We meander through meadows and along forest edges. Please wear appropriate footwear! All dogs must remain on leash for the duration of the event. A liability waiver is available above or can be signed at the event. The choice to allow your dog to interact with other dogs is a personal one and all attendees are asked to recognize and respect this, being courteous to other dog owners.

We’re very excited to have Agility Junkies ( join us this year! Since 1998, they’ve been educating dog owners about agility. Some of the Junkies are serious competitors, demonstrating their skills at agility trials. Others practice agility simply for the fun of it, or as a supplement to other disciplines such as obedience and conformation. Don’t miss them!

Please join us in welcoming author and dog-blogger, Lynn Stacy-Smith ( She’ll be selling & signing her book, Love, Laugh, Woof, at the walk, with all proceeds being donated back to Normal Moments!
