Will the music be too loud for my dog?
We will spare you the in-depth decibel conversation but dogs ears are sensitive. As such, this event volume will be enjoyable but not excessively loud. If your dog becomes distressed when listening to loud music at home or while riding with you in the car, this may not be the right event to attend with your dog. Even if your dog isn’t a perfect fit, you are welcome to come and pet everyone else’s dogs!
How will I know if my dog is having a good time?
If event staff notices signs that your dog isn’t having a good time, you may be asked to take a break in a quieter area. Event staff are trained in dog behavior and attendees are asked to be respectful of their requests and the rules of the venue. If your dog is clearly not enjoying his/her self due to the volume, lights or crowd, you may be asked to leave. Don’t take it personally, this is a unique opportunity to enjoy a music event with your dog. New experiences have the potential to be overstimulating- remember your first live music event? Partial refunds may be offered at the discretion of the venue. Eventbrite booking fees can not be refunded.
What will the temperature be?
Come as you are! It is acceptable to wear street clothes like jeans and a t-shirt. EDP will involve dancing and being surrounded by people and dogs, so don’t wear anything too heavy, or things with small bits and pieces that might fall and pose a choking hazard for pups. Please ensure that your EDP outfit does not obstruct your vision, you must be able to see dogs in the area. Some outfits may include LED lights which are acceptable but please ensure that you do not bring chemical glow jewelry. Although generally considered non-toxic, glow sticks include a chemical called Dibutyl Phthalate which can cause drooling and vomiting if ingested. Take advantage of the judgment-free environment to let your creative flag fly — wear wacky, brightly colored clothing or even a costume. Angels, fairies, and even cartoon characters. Outfits and costumes sometimes consist of simply a bra-top and short shorts, plus accessories. Non toxic body paint is acceptable.
