Would you ever bring your dog to a dog-only Easter egg hunt? Is that a real thing?
The Little River Park in Lee, New Hampshire says it is absolutely a real thing, which if you ask me, is so 'pawsome'.
It is safe to say that family dogs get just about as much love, attention, and care as human children.
Yes, I am partially biased, as I treat my two mini-bernedoodles like kings; however, I am not alone in the spoiling of my dogs.
Considering the growing love for dogs, The Little River Park is hosting the 2nd Annual Doggy Easter Egg Hunt, according to the event page.
The Doggy Easter Egg hunt will be on April 16, 2022 between 10:00am – 1:00pm at 34 N River Rd. Lee, NH.
This event has a lot of layers to it.
To start, there is a cost associated, and two kinds of tickets. The first type of ticket is a general ticket. The general tickets cost $50 per dog (and human) for members; whereas non-members will pay $60.
They also offer a VID (very important dog) ticket for $60 per member, and $85 for non members.
Those who purchase a general admission ticket will receive "an egg hunt, fitness warm up, photo with furry and human family, sensory experience, spring flower paw print, visit with Partner tables, goody bag, and a chance to win prizes," according to the Little River Park website.
Those with a VID experience ticket will receive "everything listed under general admission as well as a special Easter basket filled with treats and sensory toys for your dog, first entry into the woods to find eggs before other participants, 1 in 10 chance of winning our big raffle prize."
To clarify one more time - this is solely for your dogs. Yes, humans get to participate by bringing your dogs to such a fun opportunity; however, this event will be a one mile trail walk with your dog. Your ticket will allow your furry companion to grab up to 24 eggs that will hold a dog treat and perhaps an extra prize slip.
There are a decent number of rules and regulations, including that dogs must be leashed, no more than two dogs per person, dogs must have rabies vaccination, and more.
