Pictures from K9 Kamp!

We can't believe today is the last day of  K9 Kamp! The three weeks flew by and we had so much fun with our activities and the challenge put forth by our Kamp counselors Peggy at Peggy's Pet Place and Jodi at Kol's Notes:

Get active with your dog, 30 minutes extra, 3 or 4 times a week

We decided we'd take the time to learn Crate Games, and we're still having fun with them. But we also did a lot more!
  • We took daily walks... with some running thrown in
  • Signed up for a Rally class... something we've never done before, and we love it! 
  • Continued with our agility foundation classes, and played backyard agility too!
  • And, we arranged for several special play dates with some of our favorite Havanese pals!
Here's a look at some of the good times, Rocco had with his pals the last few weeks.

Rocco and his pal Miko enjoy a swimmy swim day!
Miko shows Rocco how to head to the pool steps so you can always get out of the pool. Of course the humans were always close by while pups were in or near the pool.

Rocco learns it's fun to run when wet!

 Wheeee!


Some of Rocco's Havanese agility pals enjoyed a good romp in the agility field. We practiced tunnels and shoots since Rocco's not old enough yet to do the other equipment .


Rocco and his pal Nicky play some good old-fashioned tug of war!

And then run relay races!

Rocco can't wait for the next camp session!

  10. It looks like you had a grand time at Kamp and discovered some new passions. The pictures show what a great time the pups are having, make it fun and they won't even know they're getting fit.

    1. Rocco LOVES to have a good time, which includes zooming and playing! He's the first dog I've had who I have to make sure takes a rest when he needs it. I don't want him to overheat!

  13. Wow, you guys were busy busy! Good job! Love those wet pup pics! Rita loves to get wet, but doesn't like to swim. I don't think she'd go in a pool. She does know how to swim, but she only goes in if I wade out at the beach - she'll follow me out, then turn right back around and head in!

  14. Looks like Rocco had LOTS of fun! Great photos! - I especially like the one of Rocco running when wet!

  16. Rocco looks as adorable and amazing when he's soaking wet. I adore him so much! We've loved hearing about how you're building up an agility foundation and getting Rocco fit and ready to compete when he's old enough. Thank you for kamping with us!
