Bark About Scouts

  

 

Our goal at Dogs Bay is to help you build a trusting, lifelong relationship with your dog.  Training never ends and we put together our Bark About Scouts Program to keep dog owners actively engaged in helping their dogs be the BEST dogs they can be

What is Bark About Scouts?  Your dog can earn badges through educational experiences designed to provide balance and fulfillment PLUS strengthen the dog/owner relationship.

You begin by filling out our online application and taking the BAS Pledge.  The annual dues are $20 and every penny of that money is donated to a different dog charity every year.  The chosen dog charity for 2013/2014 is Stiggy’s Dogs which  is a nonprofit organization that rescues and transforms shelter dogs into psychiatric service dogs for our military veterans living with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and/or Traumatic Brain Injury.

At least once a month, there will be a badge earning opportunity.  Check our online calendar for upcoming events.

To view the criteria page, check list and some training/preparation tips on each badge earning event, visit the page for that specific event via the links below.  If you would like to sign up for the event, you may do so via the same pages.

Once you are signed up, you will attend the event, and if you meet or pass the criteria, you will earn your badge! Badge testing fees vary from badge to badge.  Badges are included in the event fee. Your dog can proudly wear his/her iron on badge on a coat, sweater, backpack, bandana or we have Badge Certificates you could add your dog’s badges to.

Attention former Dogs Bay clients…if you have attended any of our group and/or private training or Puppy Parties, you qualify for a badge.  
Please fill out this form for details on how to claim your badge.

If you are interested in signing up for our Bark About Scouts program, please click here to fill out our online application.  A Dogs Bay representative will then contact you to take care of the enrollment process.
