Hotel: CrestHill Suites has given us a great group rate and has the following rooms available for us:
Friday night:
~ 2 Bedroom suite with 1 King bed and 2 Queens $159
~ King suites with a pull out couch $79
~ King bedroom suite no pull out bed $79

These rates also include a continental breakfast. You can see more information about the hotel here:
This hotel is also dog friendly, for anyone traveling with a doodle. The fee is $50 per dog for your entire stay. (they even have (included) a service to walk your dog for you if you’re going to be out for the day) They will be holding these rooms for us until July 1st. Please note that there will be a soccer tournament in town this weekend and a lot of hotels are already booked so, after July 1st when these rooms are released for general purchase, there will probably be slim chances of a room being available. (however, if they do still have rooms available, they will honor our group rate) You can tell them you’re with the North East Doodle Breeders Conference when booking. Also, if arriving into the Syracuse Airport, inform them of your arrival and departure times so they can schedule a shuttle for you (it is complimentary, but they will be running special trips for our group as they normally only shuttle during the week)

We will be having a time of sharing our “favorite things” and ask that everyone registering brings something that they really love (anything you use for breeding or with your dogs that you couldn’t live without!). After a time of sharing the products we love and why we like using them, we will hold a silent auction on all the items to allow everyone a chance to win them! Proceeds will go towards compensating our guest speakers.

Registration: Please send a check payable to:
Katherine Lewis

Baldwinsville, NY 13027
