For 2020, Wild Blue Dogs will be hosting both a summer
dog-and-people camp at Lake Tahoe! It’s the perfect forum for relaxing on the beach or under the pines with your buddy, making new human and canine friends and learning lots of new skills and tricks in the bargain.
Held on a fenced, 33-acre property between Edgewood Golf Course and Zephyr Cove on the Nevada side of the lake (the facility serves in mid-summer as a 4-H camp), the Wild Blue
dog camps—one May 31-June 6 and another Sept. 7-13—offer a full agenda of fun, training and camaraderie in disciplines ranging from agility and lure-coursing to nose work and dog photography.
The interactive camp sessions are all-inclusive, with lodging either in cabins at the 4H site (BYO sleeping bag and toiletries, and be assigned a roommate) or down the road in South Lake Tahoe at the Tahoe Beach Retreat and Lodge, a dog-passionate property about a 10-minute drive from the dog-camp venue. . A third option: make your own offsite arrangements and come to the venue just for the day. Three meals a day Monday-Friday are included, along with all-day snacks and beverages plus all activities and classes, which are taught by certified and professional trainers. The choices are diverse, ranging from guided hikes to tricks, rally, recall, tracking, water sports, obedience, training methods and more. It’s all intended to facilitate bonding between you and your dog and thereby to develop a happy relationship to last a lifetime. Wild Blue calls it “play with a purpose,” and you’ll understand its mission the minute you check in.
