Houndstooth (The Tooth Fairy) is now taking appointments for anesthetic-free tooth cleaning. The service will be set up in the Activities Area of the Allstar Center and you will set up your own appointment and pay her directly. For a reservation, call Kathy at 310-835-1919 or e-mail her at pettoothfairy@gmail.com.

FOOD:
Friday: We will feature the Mexican Food Truck all day and light sandwiches from Nana's Cookies. The Allstar Snack Bar will be open, and our PA Pride vendors will provide light fare.

Saturday: J.J.'s Smokehouse will join us on Saturday, providing your favorite BBQ foods. Note that there will be vegan/vegetarian options available. The Allstar Snack Bar will be open, and our PA Pride Vendors will provide light fare.

Sunday: We will offer a free hot breakfast to registered guests (you'll need your bracelet to be served). Will be served in the cafeteria area of the Allstar.

BABYSITTING AREA:
Please note that we ask that you provide your name and a cell phone number when you leave your dog with us, and that you respect a two-hour maximum time for babysitting.

OFF LEASH PLAY AREA:
Note that large dogs will need to be muzzled in the off leash play area. There will be scheduled times for large dog and small dog play (small dogs do not need to be muzzled). Please do not leave your dogs in the off leash play area unattended and pick up after your dogs.

WASTE PICK-UP:
There will be disposal places around the Eisenhower and they will be emptied every day. PLEASE USE THEM...we are able to be here at the discretion of the hotel and the Allstar Center so we must insist that you pick up after your dogs. In town, the same holds true...please remember to take bags with you wherever you happen to take your dogs.

AUTHORITY FIGURES:
The Board Members of Nittany Greyhounds will all be wearing bright orange shirts that say Authority Figure on the back. Anyone wearing said shirts will be able to solve any problems you may have. Don't hesitate to ask, or come to the Registration desk of you have an issue.

SAFETY:
We are asking that you please wear a mask, whether you have been vaccinated or not. As of right now, we will not be mandating anything, but we do ask that you be considerate of all of our guests. Some vendors may ask you to wear a mask in their booths; please respect that request. They will have a sign posted if they want you to do that. Our event is a NO POLITICS ZONE. Please respect others' opinions and requests.

There will be hand sanitizer and masks in every swag bag, there will be wipes and sanitizing stations around the Allstar Center, and we will distance as much as possible.

HANDICAPPED PARKING:
Directly in front of the Allstar front door, there are a dozen handicapped parking spaces. These are for our guests who have handicapped placards only. If you need to offload temporarily, that's alright but you will be asked to move your vehicle after you have finished unloading.

SEATING:
Please bring a chair or blanket for those down times; be sure to bring water for yourself and your hounds, although we will have some cooling stations around outside the Allstar. There will be NO water stations inside of the Center; the floor becomes slippery so the only drinking stations will be outside. You may put up a pop-up tent if you choose, outside of the Allstar on the grounds, or you may bring an x-pen for inside of the Activities area.

REMEMBER THAT BRACELETS ARE REQUIRED TO LISTEN TO THE SPEAKERS, TO BE IN THE ACTIVITIES AREA, FOR THE HOT BREAKFAST ON SUNDAY AND FOR THE SUNRISE SYMPOSIUM.
