An event for the Society for Creative Anachronism


Companion animals are welcome at Battlemoor, but it’s important to recognize that owners should be prepared to meet their needs on site.  The staff has drafted guidelines so that owners may be prepared to keep their companions safe and protected during the event.

Companions must be on leash with their owner (or designated attendant), or safely contained in their campsite.  They may be crated or penned, with pens allowing them sufficient room to stand, turn around, and lie down freely.  If tethered, tethers should be no longer than 12’, out of public traffic, and tangle proof.  All shelters should provide ample shade and protection from the elements, and have fresh water accessible.

All animals at Battlemoor shall wear identification bearing the name of their owner and camp at all times.  Owners should have proof of current rabies vaccine with them as well.  Given the wooded nature of the site, the staff recommends that animals have preventative treatment for ticks and fleas.

Quiet hours are from 10pm to 8am, and companions should be quiet during that time.  If you have questions or concerns, please address them to the Watch.

Other event attendees who have concerns about the care of an animal at the event should address those concerns to Security, who will speak with the owner in question.
