Follow this road to the dead end, then turn right on Foothills Blvd North.

Tracking will be dirt. Competitors will be meeting at a central location (revealed at Draw Night) to caravan to the tracking fields.
COMPETITORS: Shade is limited and reserved for competitors. Thus, parking near the club house is for COMPETITORS ONLY; this will be strictly enforced.
ALL SPECTATORS: Spectator and RV parking is available in the side parking lot, which is accessed at the far end (north end) of the field. There is no shade available in this lot; we request that spectators leave dogs at home not only out of respect for our competitors, but also due to the lack of available shade.
Blinds will start to the left.

6664 Lonetree Blvd, Rocklin,
Call and ask for the "Schutzhund Club" rates when making a reservation ($110, $35 pet fee).
It is becoming increasingly difficult to find good hotels that will allow large dogs without huge 'pet fees'; thus, please remember:
- All dogs must be crated if left in the hotel room.
- Please clean up after your dog; poop bags will be provided in the competitor gift bags.
- Use designated areas or out-of-the-way areas (if no designated areas are available) to relieve your dogs.
- Please be courteous and respectful of other guests who may not be "into" dogs.
Please remember we are the public face of this sport. All handlers are representing their chosen breed and the sport of Schutzhund/IPO to the general public; we hope all competitors seek to make a positive impact and impression.
