Introducing the first-ever DGA Seasonal Camp!
Our Trek & Train program is a unique doggie day camp that provides outdoor adventure and specialized care. It’s a paw-some combination of playtime and practice. This year we’re pleased to announce our very first seasonal camp! This fall all Trek & Train dogs attending throughout October and November will enjoy a variety of fall-themed training activities, games, and treats! Throughout the season Trek & Train dogs attending will enjoy a variety of the options below and every Trek & Train dog will receive a fall-themed photo. It’s our way of pumpkin-spicing things up and making the outdoor adventure even more thrilling! Take a look through the planned activities and fall in love with the fun.
Autumn Hikes – Refreshing hikes in fall foliage throughout the season in the valleys and hillsides of Northern Nevada.
Turkey Trots – Trot for that turkey! We’ll go on brisk walks and the dogs will enjoy a special turkey stick reward at the end.
Obedience games designed to reinforce training
The Patient Pumpkin Recall Challenge – Trek and Train dogs get to practice recall and recognizing their name. The pack will line up and they must wait to hear their name called before they earn a pumpkin treat. Dogs showing the best recall skills earn some pumpkin treats for home!
Scaredy Cat! Distraction Challenge – Dogs will be placed in a “down” command while we challenge them with distractions like toys, noise, and movement. The dogs that stay in a “down” the longest win. All participants will receive Boo Bars but winners get Boo Bars sent home with them.
Turkey Temptation Tower – Dogs will be challenged to watch the turkey treats stack while they patiently wait. We see if they can make it to a certain number before going for the treats. Winners get extra turkey treats for home
Pumpkin Fetch – A rousing game of fetch with stuffed, toy pumpkins
Apple Toss – Just for fun, catch the fresh apple slices mid-air
Peanut Butter Pup Challenge – who can lick the peanut butter clean fastest? Winner gets peanut butter treats for home.
Pup-ography – We’ll snap a photo of each Trek & Train pup in a fall themed background
