Events And Other Programs
Attending an event or enrolling in a special program drives fundraising and awareness, too! The Dog Alliance offers agility and behavior training courses for any dog. They have an on-site agility course and dog park, along with spacious classrooms for training. Their trainers are invested in getting to know you and your dog and figuring out the best course of action to get you where you want to be.
Summer Camp for kids fills up quickly, thanks to an incredible agenda for ages 5 through 15. Camp instructors are a mix of trainers and certified teachers. Sessions for ages 9 through 14 allow campers to bring their own dog for training. If you don’t have a dog or if your dog is not necessarily a “happy camper,” The Dog Alliance has dogs you can “borrow” for camp.
Skip the bounce house and head to The Dog Alliance for your child’s next birthday celebration. Birthday Parties are two hours long and dog-themed, of course. Parties are designed for kids ages 2 through 13 but they have hosted adult parties, too! See their party page for details and cost and to contact staff for availability.
The Dog Alliance is always accepting donations that support all of their amazing programs. To keep up to date on their goals and progress, and to have adorable puppy pictures fill your feed, follow their Instagram and Facebook accounts.
