NEW STRICTLY ENFORCED PET WASTE PICK UP POLICY:
The ALL AMERICAN COLUMBUS PET EXPO is all about teaching people about responsible pet ownership . Cleaning up after your pet is a top priority for health and safety for people and pets, in a place with thousands attending. When you check your pet in (at the Pet Check in Area), we provide you with poop pick up bags and paper towels. Clean up stations are also located throughout the show (noted on the floor plan in the show programs you receive when you enter our event). If your pet has an accident you are required to clean it up immediately with the provided materials.
PLEASE NOTE:
Any pet owner that walks away from their pet's mess without cleaning it up will be asked to leave the PET EXPO and will not be permitted to attend again. Designated doors throughout the show are available for you to take your pet outside, to a Pet Potty Area, so they can take care of business : . You are responsible to clean up after them outside too, like you would any place. People can slip and fall in pet messes and it also disrupts sales for vendors when a mess is not cleaned up right away. We know all responsible pet owners will understand why we must be very strict with this policy. This policy has been developed because, for past few years many people have left behind their pet's messes and caused unnecessary problems for others. Thanks in advance for understanding this new strict policy.

NEW SEATING POLICY
No dogs, with the exception of very small dogs that can be held in your arms will be allowed in the bleachers for the events. In the last few years people have taken up numerous seats with big dogs on leashes. It is also unsafe for dogs on leashes to try and navigate bleachers.The chance of a dog or person getting injured is too great. Please use the regular seating areas and have your pet positioned before you on your non-retractable leash. There are also standing areas for viewing shows that are available for you and your pet.


Thank you for being a responsible pet owner. We look forward to seeing you and your pet at our 23rd ALL AMERICAN COLUMBUS PET EXPO!
