For any dog-loving adventurer, exploring the great outdoors is better with a four-legged furry companion. Oh there’s much to be said for the solo trek, a solitary camping excursion or a one-person sailboat cruise around the world. But for many thrill seekers, sharing an adventure with man's best friend is unparalleled.
Dogs can be your partner through adversity and even protect you from harm. What more can you ask for from an adventure buddy? Of course, certain dog breeds are better suited for the outdoors and nature. Check out the best dog breeds for an adventurist.
There’s fun for all at the 9th annual Everybody & Their Dog Walk on Sunday June 3rd, 2012 at Beaver Lake Park. This canine carnival celebrates dog ownership and brings together people and their pooches from all over the region for a day of fun with the family and the dog.
You can join the leash-optional walk through the woods, learn about local rescue organizations, visit with dog-related businesses, or enter your dog in our fun dog show.
If your dog has basic good manners you can try out the Canine Good Neighbour Program, between 10am and 2pm. This Canadian Kennel Club program tests dogs in 12 everyday situations and offers a certificate to those that qualify. Cost for the CGN is $20 including certificate.
Registration and booths open at 10am and the walk sets off at 11. Hot dogs and pizza will be available by donation with proceeds going to Broken Promises Rescue. The dog show kicks off at noon with five classes: most beautiful dog, fastest eater, most unique trick, best-dressed dog and dog the judge would most like to take home. Registration for the dog show opens at 10am and cost is $1 per class.
It’s all happening in the big field by the main entrance to Beaver Lake Park (off Elk Lake Drive) from 10am until 2pm. There are contests, prizes and so much more, so mark your calendars and come join in the fun.
