I found this on the USA Today web site and thought how unique. There are specialty camps that you and you four- legged friend can go to together. There are only a handful of camps throughout the U.S.
www.glenhighlandfarm.com/caninecamp.htm. This camp is located in Morris, NY. They have agility camps in July and September, and some other mini camps available for bonding experiences.
Visit the Dog Scouts of America’s camp in Michigan where both you and your dog can learn some new things. From agility and flyball to clicker training and backpacking, there are literally hundreds of activities to enjoy with your best furry friend.
There is also camp Dog Wood Located in Illinois, which is located on a lake. Camp Dogwood ($420 to $700 for three nights and four days, depending on the accommodations), held three times a year at an overnight camp for kids (when kid camp’s not in session).
Most canine camps are held at waterfront facilities — rustic cabins and/or tent or RV sites — that serve as kid camps, music workshops or couples-counseling retreats most of the time but that occasionally go to the dogs.
Most limit participants to 20 to 100 humans plus their dogs (some allow two dogs per person), and many exclude kids younger than 18 on the grounds that a person keeping track of children isn’t as able to bond with a dog in the ideal way. Now only if there was a spa for you and your furry friend you could get a massage, facial and manicure all in one. I am sure that’s next.
