Here's More Important Information about the Gathering:


  •  Your Glen(s)!
  •  A crate or X-pen for your Glen (so you can eat and they can chill out)
  •  A chair, and shade if possible
  •  An item for the Pot Luck lunch.  Please indicate the category of food you will be bringing when you register to attend the Gathering.
  • Water and sodas will be available.
  • Remember that Glens (like most terriers) can be dog aggressive. While your Glen may be very friendly, others may not be. Please be courteous and cautious when approaching other dogs, and keep your dog under control.
  • The above applies to any two-legged dependents in attendance too!
  • Flexi-leads are not permitted, as they require close attention on the part of the human. There will be many dogs present, things to see and do, people to meet, and distractions for us all... we feel that dogs under control on standard leashes (or in crates or X-pens) will create a safer environment.  We will have loaner leashes available for for the day if you don't have a regular leash.
  • Do plan to pick up after your dog! Thank you.
