You must sign a waiver stating that your dog's vaccinations from a licensed veterinarian are current. This waiver holds you (the owner) liable in the event of an incident. We recommend you contact your veterinarian regarding other vaccinations that may suit your dog's needs.
All dogs must be leashed (no retractable leashes) and licensed. The Cincinnati Marathon, Inc. reserves the right to deny any dog or human entrance to Flying Fur Run event for any reason they may see fit. Participants are expected to practice responsible pet ownership. Please come prepared to clean up after your dog.
Rabies - given annually, but sometimes can be a 3 year.
DHLP (Distemper, Hepatitis, Leptospirosis, Para influenza) - all given annually, sometimes referred to as the Combo Vaccination, especially when it includes Parvo.
Parvo - given annually, many times this is included in the DHLP and indicated as DHLPP.
Bordatella - given either every six months or annually. Sometimes referred to as: Kennel Cough OR Tracheobronchitis
Please keep this in mind for your dog's participation in the Flying Fur Run
Your dog should be:
old enough to be around other dogs and people (at least 6 months of age)
up to date on all required vaccinations
able to walk 2 miles
able to do well on-leash and is not overly aggressive toward other dogs
friendly toward humans and not excessively fearful
able to mix with a big crowd
healthy and not exhibiting any signs of illness close to the day of the game (ie, cough, nasal discharge, lethargy, diarrhea, etc). These symptoms can be signs of potentially infectious illnesses and it would probably be best for your dog, as well as the other dogs in attendance, if they did not attend
Older dogs and/or dogs in general that are quickly prone to heat exhaustion should consider not attending this event. Even though there will be cool water and shady spots, the direct sun and heat can be a deadly combination for dogs. Water will be served community bowl style. If you require a separate drinking container for your dog, please bring one. Dogs cool themselves down by panting and are not nearly as efficient as us humans. Please keep the comfort and safety of your dog in the fore front of your mind when planning out this fun day.
