  2. Pets must be current on vaccinations. 
  3. Pets should be sociable with other animals, adults, and children and not aggressive about food, toys, or owner. 
  4. 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.
