Staying long in a big crowd in rain and shine may be dangerous to pets’ mental and physical health and not only put their life at risk but also put other visitors at danger and destroy the pet owner´s delight in the festival. In case a pet is brought to the festival, the following rules have to be observed:

·        Only trained, well-behaving and non-aggressive pets are allowed;
·        Pet owner has to clean-up after the pet immediately (be equipped with plastic bags);
·        Pet owner is fully responsible for any damage done by the pet;
·        The pet has to be vaccinated;
·        The name and mobile telephone number of the owner have to be attached to the collar of the pet;
·        Well-being for the pet has to be granted by the owner: the pet has to be fed and clean drinking water provided. Longer stay in a closed vehicle is absolutely prohibited;
·        The pet has to be close to the owner. Not all people are pet lovers and do not welcome their close presence. Pets should not violate public order and disturb other visitors.
