The Red Lion Hotel on the River is situated on the Columbia riverfront, only 2.2 miles from the Expo center. In addition to a lengthy list of amenities, the property features recently redecorated rooms, a riverfront promenade, and a friendly staff. The hotel is very dog-aware and several clubs use it throughout the year to host their specialties on-site. Well-behaved and closely-watched dogs are welcome throughout the grounds, including the lobby. There are casual sitting areas at regular intervals along the corridors on all levels, giving the hotel a convivial feel and providing lots of opportunity to visit with friends old and new.

The Jantzen Beach shopping center is less than a half-mile away, with a variety of shopping and a variety of dining choices without leaving Hayden Island. Please plan on staying with us at the Red Lion and make your reservations early! July is a busy month at this popular hotel on the river and we have limited rooms available in our block.

Reserved Grooming

CRCTC will reserve some grooming space for the communal use of our members and Cairn guests. Because space can be tight we ask that you stack crates efficiently and limit and share chairs to the extent possible. No ex-pens in the communal grooming area. A donation of $5/crate would be gratefully received as means to recover some of the cost. If you prefer having your own reserved space, see premium list for reservation details.

Grooming Hospitality

For our out-of-town exhibitors who are flying in, we are able to provide a limited number of complimentary grooming tables and crates on-site at the Expo Center for your convenience. To reserve a table and/or crate, contact Susan McAlpin (susan.mcalpin@gmail.com, 360-666-0115).
