Info for Guide Dog Users

Guide dog relief areas are built and maintained by Scoop Masters, and are located near hotel exits.  ACB volunteers and hotel staff will be happy to help you locate the areas.

It is your responsibility to relieve your dog at regular intervals.  You are expected to pick up after your dog; trash receptacles are located near relief areas.

Should an indoor accident occur, please report it to the front desk.  Do not just walk away from or ignore an accident.  If an accident occurs in your room, you will be charged for the clean-up.

The GDUI Convention Area Orientation (Sun., July 5 at 8:00 AM and Mon., July 6 at 7:30 AM) will help you learn the best routes in and around the hotel; meet in the GDUI Suite.
Suite hours are:

  • Sunday, July 5, noon to 5:00 PM
  • Monday & Tuesday, July 6 & 7, 10:00 AM to 5:00PM
  • Wednesday, July 8, 9:00 AM to 12 noon.

Socialize, take a break, and learn all about GDUI's products from our very own Connie Jacomini.  Give your dog the luxury of a 10-15 minute tension relieving and restorative canine massage by Carla Campbell, a professional canine massage therapist, for $20; appointments preferred, walk-ins if available during suite hours.

Don’t miss our "Silent Auction" where you can bid on a multitude of goodies; tech gadgets, digital books, jewelry and a tasty treat from Penny's kitchen.  Purchase raffle tickets for “Dallas,” a beautiful plush black lab, and chances for numerous prizes, grand prize $1,000.
 Note: Jenine Stanley has recruited a cadre of dedicated volunteers who will be available all week to answer your questions and assist you with solving doggie "pick-up" and other relief-area concerns.

Doggie Play Area is located in San Antonio Ballroom B.  Lots of unleashed fun for your dog.
