Beaver Brook naturalists will lead guided hikes of varying lengths for dogs and their families at 10 a.m., 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. There will be a self-guided storywalk for visitors to follow a children's storybook along the trail. 

There will be various canine demonstrations including "nosework," the sport of acent work.

In the Shade Garden, there will be a "Paws to Read " area for children to read storybooks to Reading Dogs and to have their photos taken.   There will be cart rides for young children by Bernese Mountain dogs.

Don't forget to bring a costume for your dog if you would like to join in the pet parade and costume contest at 11 am!

Food will be available for sale including Grill-your-own hot dogs or tofu pups on a stick plus homemade baklava ice cream!  Great raffles will be available also.

Friendly dogs must be on a leash (no flexi-leads please) and cleaned up after.

We will have pet pools and water bowls around the property for hydration stations.  Call Beth at Beaver Brook if you have any questions about this awesome family and dog-friendly event  603-465-7787.
