Introduction to Dining with Your Dog

Like humans, dogs are what they eat. In this session, campers gain in-depth knowledge of dog nutrition and how to make delicious, well-balanced meals for their dogs at home. Campers learn the “ins” and “outs” of a proper dog diet by creating super fun canine-friendly meals each day of camp. Campers cook up one main meal and two snack options daily for their puppy companions. Campers also teach their canine team member proper behavior during a variety of simulated eating arrangements, like a birthday party, a family holiday dinner, a picnic in the park, a restaurant experience, and a wedding celebration. This session builds on the principle of dogs that eat healthy at home live longer, more active lives.

Campers can choose to train their own dog for the Intro to Dog Sports session, or they can work with a rescue puppy or dog available at camp. Dogs must be able to focus on their owner and work around other dogs. Campers must attend one Basic Dog Training session as a pre-requisite to register for this session. Campers may bring their own dog to camp for this session, provided the dog is current on all required vaccines* and can be controlled appropriately at all times by its owner. Up-to-date medical records must be provided prior to bringing your dog to camp. For campers choosing not to bring their own dog, a camp rescue dog or puppy will be provided.

The session will also include animal-themed games. Session fee includes a t-shirt and all activities and materials. You will need to pack your camper’s lunch daily. Fee is $220 per child per week. Multi-session and family discounts available.

Pre-requisite: Must attend one session of Basic Dog Training and demonstrate ability to handle dogs properly prior to registering for Introduction to Dining with Your Dog.

*Required vaccines are DHLPP, Bordetella, and Rabies. No dogs under 12-weeks-old or without all vaccines are allowed. No dogs 6-months or older that have not been spayed or neutered are allowed.
