Pet Events for April 23 - April 30, 2014

This week's Pet Events Newsletter is brought to you by
Canine Camp Getaway!

Despite the snow on the ground, spring is officially here, and 
that means it's time to start planning your summer vacation! But what do you do when you desperately need a vacation but can't imagine leaving your four-legged best friend behind? 

Don't worry, CANINE CAMP GETAWAY OF NY has got you covered, with a vacation designed to be tons of fun for you AND your pup! Set against the stunning backdrop of the Adirondack Mountains in beautiful Lake George, NY, Canine Camp Getaway of NY is the ultimate summer vacation for dogs and dog lovers!


Swim in the dog-friendly pool, try your hand (or paw) at agility, hike the scenic trails, take classes in K9 nose work, frisbee, lure coursing, flyball, rally obedience, canine freestyle dance, or go to ground, relax at a "Barks & Crafts" class, learn Canine CPR and enjoy seminars by top veterinarians and trainers. 

At night, unwind with your dog at Yappy Hour, indulge in gourmet meals in the dog-friendly section of the dining room and enjoy evening entertainment with your pup at your side.

Our next Getaway is set for June 22-26, 2014 and space is running out fast, so book your vacation today and don't let your dog be shut out of the fun! 
Or, if you prefer to vacation in the Fall, check out our 
Fall Getaway, set for September 20-23, 2014.
