What is Wild Blue Dogs?
Cancer is the number one killer of dogs. Six million dogs will be diagnosed this year alone and most will die within the year. Wild Blue’s need-based treatment program offers grants to people lacking the resources to pay for their pet’s cancer treatment. Fundraising activities include two, week-long dog camps plus other fun get-togethers throughout the year. Wild Blue Dogs supports research in comparative oncology, which is focused on the link between cancer in dogs and cancer in humans. By finding ways to treat dogs we are also finding the most promising advances in treatment, including new drug therapy, gene therapy, immune system therapies, bone marrow transplants and advanced surgical techniques.

If you love Lake Tahoe, want to spend a fun time with your pack learning new tricks, all while supporting canine cancer treatment, we’ve got the perfect summer adventure. Wild Blue Dog's third annual summer camp is now accepting reservations for an activity-packed week in the company of other dog-lovers and their pets.

Wild Blue Dog Camp at South Lake Tahoe is just what it sounds like: summer camp for you and your dog(s). Held just one week a year (Sept. 2-8 in 2019) on a 33-acre, sandy-beach property between Edgewood Golf Course and Zephyr Cove on the Nevada side of the lake (the facility serves in summer as a 4H camp), Wild Blue offers a full agenda of training in everything from agility and lure-coursing to nose work and doga (yoga with your dog on the beach).

There’s swimming for both of you right off the beach or a pier, plus guided hikes, kayaking, paddle-boarding, and training and testing, for those interested, in Canine Good Citizen and therapy-dog certification. But there’s no need to stay constantly on the go: you’ll also want to make time to relax on a big green lawn in the shade of fragrant pines. more »
