Enjoy a special day with your dog on a beautiful lake with a small group of fellow dog lovers. Our day is geared towards having a ton of fun and learning how to paddle, while escaping the busy city for a day. Before the day's end you will have learned how to paddle a canoe with your pet in tow, enjoyed a beautiful shoreline picnic and explored the nooks and crannies that make a lake-side habitat so special.

SECOND PRIZE : A Paw Party for the winner and 4 of his/her friends at Waggz & Whiskerz (value is $225.00 and includes a video, photos, and loot bag).
