Generally speaking the NCWA does not allow dogs at our events. If you absolutely must bring your dog for whatever reason, there is a procedure for doing so. First, you must get the approval of your branch commander – Union Colonel, Confederate Colonel, or Civilian Mayor. You must also get the approval of the entire Admin Board – President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. This must be done PRIOR TO THE EVENT. If this has not been done, the dog WILL NOT BE ALLOWED AT THE EVENT. Any dogs attending NCWA events must be kept under control at all times. Nobody wants their gear to be chewed up or have a leg lifted on it, and nobody wants to step in an unexpected surprise. If you show up with a dog and have not gone through the above procedure, you and your dog will be asked to leave.
NCWA Rules, page 27:
ANIMALS: Members, guest participants, and spectators are not allowed to have dogs at NCWA controlled events. The only animals allowed are horses, mules, oxen and fowl; approved by the Branch Commanders prior to the event and safety tested, if appropriate. Any exceptions must be approved by the Branch Commanders and the Administrative Board prior to the event.
