If required there will be a staggered start to help reduce congestion, ensure smoother traffic flow, and can minimize potential conflicts between dogs. 

Group sizes will be based on our total number of participants, with comfortable group sizes decided on the day. Depending on group sizes we will have 5 to 10 minute intervals.
