This is a fun, educational, interactive, and hands-on summer camp designed for kids aged 7 to 14 to learn how to be better companions to their animal friends. Kids will learn through animal enrichment activities:
Dog Body Language - What are our dogs trying to communicate to us?
Dog Obedience - Basic obedience commands every child should know with their pets.
Dog Tricks - Fun tricks that kids will love to teach and have their dogs play with them at home.
Dog Agility - Introduction to fun-gility for kids and dogs. Great for beginners!
Dog Grooming - How to maintain our dogs at home in between grooming visits.
Dog Care - How to better care for our furry companions at home.
Games with Kids & Dogs - Interactive games that kids can play with their dogs at home.
There will also be art projects, outdoor play, and music activities throughout the day to keep kids engaged. This program is led by a Certified Dog Trainer and an experienced teacher.
