In 1989 Dog Scouts of America was an idea for a camp for dogs. Over the years it has evolved into a community of dogs and their owners who have taken ‘obedience’ training to a whole new level. The organization began as a Dog Camp, evolved into ‘Dog Scouts’, and eventually “Dog Scouts of America” with a simple yet remarkable mission.
“To improve the lives of dogs, their owners, and society through humane education, positive training, and community involvement.” Dog Scouts of America Mission Statement

This is a remarkable organization to become involved in because it is fun! Also, dogs and their owners, who participate in the events, trainings, challenges, organized community services, and rallies, earn badges each step of the way.
The following video will show you a bit more about one of the events.

Happy Campers — Terri and Ty
As you can clearly see from the photo Ty is earning a lot of badges but, what stands out the most in this photo is the smiles. Training is a part of developing a relationship with our pets. When you have the opportunity to participate in organized programs, such as Dog Scouts, the training curriculum doesn’t look like a classroom anymore. Instead it is a journey, an adventure, and spending time together which both owner and pet are going to enjoy and cherish.

When you are planning your puppy’s training program we hope you will consider the Dog Scouts of America option. The myriad of results of this model for obedience training are closer relationships, happier people and pets, and the assurance you will remain the leader of the pack for your treasured pet. Giving pets our time and attention, meaningful work, praise and encouragement, all combine to enhance our journey together.

Begin early and you will have the advantages of learning how to teach your pet along the way. The youngest members of the Dog Scouts of America are having just as much fun and they are also learning to play and work together more effectively.
