Dog Days - The first of two weekends of fun for our four-legged friends! PLUS, special Walleye Event seminars with a well-known guide! There's a lot going on, so read carefully!
First, and foremost, ALL DOGS must be kept close at side and under control. No matter how small or even if they're carried or in a cart. The leash MUST be in the owner's hand at all times. Owners are responsible for their dog's behavior!
When you're here, take a photo of your dog and share it on social media with #bassprodogdays!
