Additional T&Cs for dog owners


Conscious Tribal Gathering is currently a dog friendly event, there aren't many festival type events that allow dogs on site.

After much debate with regular crew members, a narrow margin vote has allowed another chance for dogs and their owners to enjoy Conscious Tribal Gathering in 2017. This will be re-assessed for future events and it may become policy that future events be "no dogs allowed" if the problems persist.

The site that has been loaned to us for our gatherings has a strict policy of Dogs on leads (with a human at the other end).

There are multiple reasons for this, including; livestock in adjacent fields, visibility and therefore ability to react when mess occurs, safety concerns for humans and other dogs (specifically; dog owners have expressed concerns that small dogs would be at risk should there be a confrontation with larger dogs).

Another issue with Dogs at the event is the "poo" condition of the nearby roads, which (we have been informed) become heavily soiled with dog mess, getting to "unspeakable" levels towards the Sunday. This is not acceptable as it spoils the enjoyment of the area for all, and it jeopardises the future of the event at this site. Please bag it an bin it both when on site and in neighbouring areas.

In summary;

  • Dogs on leads at all times (with a human at the other end!).
  • If your dog is not used to a lead, and you really want to attend, why not consider leaving the dog with a friend or family member at home?
  • Dog mess MUST be thoroughly cleaned up and bagged and placed in the skip which will be located at the top of the field close to the farm house.

The future of dogs at this event is up to you guys!

Owners will be asked only once on the ground to adhere to the dog policy, after which you may be asked to leave with no refund.

Please don't embarrass us into asking you to leave!
