Dog Sitting While You're at the Show!

The Daffodil Festival is a dog-friendly event and we want to make sure everyone can visit the Daffodil Show.  A short-time dog sitting program is available at the School.  Dog owners must register onsite at the Show entrance.

There is no fee and volunteers will provide water, exercise and shelter from the sun.  This service is only for the time owners are visiting the Daffodil Show.  Dogs are welcome throughout the Festival grounds.
