Visiting a club: would you go without your dog first?

If you were going to go visit a club for the first time, would you take your dog or not, and why?

First time visiting a sch club in the area for me coming up on Saturday, I'm bringing my dog because I want the socialization from it and a potential eval, but she's 13 weeks old.

I'd take my dog(crated in the vehicle) and bring him out only when I knew it was ok and after learning the rules.
If I was asked to leave my dog home, then I'd do so....but as long as you have a crate and the temps aren't extreme, always a good thing to have your dog with you!
Where I train barking is an issue, so a dog barking in a crate is discouraged and bark collars are a necessity for some.
I wouldn't tolerate my dog being noisy, especially if I were visiting a new group/

Take the dog but dont be offended if nobody meets her. The shutz I went to only one dog alowed out of crates at a time and I was told the dogs are amped up so not socialization time after training.

Puppies can socialize with the other club members after training is over.
But usually never, ever during a training session...that is for focusing on the handler only.

Ask if you can take your dog.

If you can, take your dog, crate him during training, bring him out when they ask, and have him evaluated.

I got invited to visit the club in the area, and they told me not to bring my dog for the first visit. If I liked the club, and was still interested, they said then I'd bring my dog the next time to see if he likes it.

I would ask the club what they want you to do. Our club wants to meet your dog and do some testing so we have you bring them. We do require they be crated, stay in that crate except to potty and are leashed when out.

Double check on vaccination policy for the club. Bring a copy, as well. Make sure you have a crate.
