Camps are a great way for people to develop skills and try different activities. But did you know that there are also camps for your canine buddies? Yes, dog camps are a thing and they cater to various types of customers and address multiple needs. Some camps are designed to further improve the abilities of dogs competing in canine sports. Other camps are meant to serve as a “vacation” with your pooch. There are also some dog camps with an intention to educate. Regardless of your purpose, it should be a breeze looking for a camp that you would like for your Bowzer to take part in.  

Step

Find the right dog camp
If you want your dog to join a dog camp, you first have to find one that meets the requirements that you are looking for. Are you looking for a camp that both you and your dog can attend? Or would you like to leave your dog in a camp while you go on a vacation of your own? You may even be looking for a camp where your dog can learn new skills. Do a quick search online or ask other furparents about dog camps that you can potentially work with.
Step
2
Join the camp
When you find the camp that you think you would like to join, reach out and get in touch with them. Find out the relevant information such as dates, length of stay, rates, and requirements. Once you are satisfied, register and pay all the necessary fees. On the day of the camp, take your Bowzer there and engage in different activities and training opportunities.

Fishing is one of the coolest and most entertaining activities that you can do. There is something rewarding about catching fish on your own. You know what would make your fishing trip more fun? Bring your Bowzer along with you! Your pooch can become the ultimate fishing buddy and can make your trips out to the river livelier. Dogs are naturally drawn to the water and will surely enjoy their time with their owners outdoors. A fishing trip is also a way for you to bond with your furry friend while taking in the beautiful nature. Just make sure to make your dog’s safety as your number one priority when you are out in the water.  

Step
1
Acquire the necessary gear
When going out to fish with your dog, you now have to think about not just your things but also the essentials for your dog. Aside from the usual fishing gear, bring some food and water and a doggy bowl for your pooch. It is also important that you have a flotation device and life jacket for your dog in case they fall off or jump into the river. You should also have a leash so you can tie your dog safely in the boat in case they want to rest or stay still for a bit.
Step
2
Catch some fish
When you have packed all the needed gear, head out to your boat. When backing up your boat, ensure that your dog is out of the way or safely in place somewhere far from the boat. You should also make sure that sharp objects such as hooks are kept away from your dog to prevent them from getting injured. Once in the water, go catch some fish as your dog looks on. You can also get off the boat and walk into the shallow parts with your Bowzer while you try to catch some fish with a net.

Kite
Activity description

Flying a kite was a childhood staple that all kids loved to play. You get a feeling of satisfaction the moment that you get the kite up in the air. Unfortunately, with the age of digital games and technology, kite flying seems like an obsolete activity. However, you can always relive the glory of your childhood days by taking your dog out on the field and flying your own kite. By having your pooch by your side, you get extra fun as you watch them running around and chasing after the kite. It can serve as a good exercise for your fun-loving Bowzer and quality time for the two of you. 

Step
1
Buy or make a kite
Even though they seem like ancient history, some specialty shops and toy stores still sell kites of all shapes and sizes. In case you cannot find one, you can always make your own. There are several tutorials all over the internet that show you how to make a kite from scrap materials.
Step
2
Fly your kite
Once you have bought or created your own kite, find an open area where you and your dog can fly the kite. It is best to find a spot without any trees or electricity lines to prevent your kite from getting caught or tangled. Then, figure out which direction the wind is and run against it so that the kite can take flight. You may even get your dog to hold on to the kite and command them to stay while you slowly run away. Then command your Bowzer to let go of the kite and watch as the kite soars.
