Pet Safety Rules
  • Pets must be on a leash. Nebraska Shakespeare is not responsible for the actions of your pet. Pets must be under control at all times.
  • Pets must be current on vaccinations.
  • Pets should be sociable with other animals, adults, and children and not aggressive about food, toys or owner.
  • Pets must be comfortable in a loud and festive environment. Please be aware of the stress level of your pet at all times. We want this to be a positive experience for everyone.
  • Pets must be at least 4 months old since younger animals have weak or no immune systems.
  • NS reserves the right to refuse entrance or ask to leave anyone whose pet is exhibiting aggressive behavior.
  • Be prepared to clean up after your pet.
