HEALTH CERTIFICATES At one point last year we heard that Purina would require a Health Certificate for each dog entering the grounds. This is not the case. As per Purina: “Health Certificate - Purina Farms does not require to see any form of health certificate. We ask that all owners have proof of vaccines & rabies certificate in case a situation were to happen (i.e. a dog bite). You can see our Visiting Pet Guidelines on the Purina Farms Website”"

RV Parking/Camping

RV CAMPING INFORMATION. Please read carefully, there is a lot of info in this post. Camping reservations open on February 1st. Please do not email forms before that date! Below you will find the the reservation form. Although the form says “Reservations must start no earlier than September 8”, Purina will keep some sites available for those coming in on September 7th for the field events on the 8th and 9th. Please reserve early so she can get a good count. When you make your reservation, please write on the form (next to your row preference at the bottom) that you are with the Curly Coated Retriever club and Purina will try to group us all together in the full service RV lot. Keep in mind that your rig size will somewhat dictate which row you can be in.
