You might need shade. You ask ask on the Splash Dogs FB page or the message board. Most people have portable canopies (aka EZ ups). But if there's shade around you can just set-up there.
Yes, bring a crate! If he's really into it - he going to start barking and pulling. Not fun for you or him. With a crate, you can dry him off, give him some love and then be free to go to the bathroom or meet other people.
You'll see where other people are setting up. You'll want to find a place a little bit away from the dock and you can always ask when you arrive where they'd prefer folks to crate. Tell them it's your first time ad ask for some help.
Also bring: towels, dry bedding for the end of the day, your short leash, what you want to throw for him (we always have extras), chairs for you, water and bowl for him, extra set of clothes for you in the car (yes, I've fallen in), good non-slip shoes like sneakers, snacks and water for you.
I'm sure other folks will have their own packing list!
