From obedience games to tricks and obstacle courses, dogs and young handlers will have a blast learning new skills, building confidence and communication! Our camp was built to encourage creativity, problem solving & teamwork through group projects and obedience games!
Each handler team will build new skills or enhance behaviors they may already know for the Pet Olympic games, learn fun & easy tricks with their dog, meet with guest speakers about animal-related professions and have the opportunity to train a new specie! During downtime while the dogs rest each day, participants will have the chance to hand make toys for their dog and also take home a hand painted portrait of their pet made special by them!
A safe, active, and enriched experience is our focus for camp
During obedience games, tricks and obstacle courses, dogs will be backed up by a tether or rest in a crate to ensure dogs don’t get loose. Dogs attending must be comfortable resting in a crate during breaks and friendly with unfamiliar people, kids, and other dogs. During active sports, each child will have an adult assisting them.
