Spring is finally here - it's time to stow away those winter coats and break out the jogging shorts. Every year, spring brings cleaning, great weather and healthy living. Although important year-round, making sure you and your dogs are in good health is especially significant during this season, when pups might be feeling especially curious on frequent outings.
As a campground manager, you might be confronted with an array of different dog-related questions and problems throughout your day. Dogs are seen as "man's best friend" so, naturally, hiking through parks and trails with their owners is a treat for both pet and parent. If your campgrounds are pet-friendly, offering services and things, like dog waste receptacles can help keep your campgrounds clean and enjoyable for everyone. Here are a few additional points that can be an asset in making your campground pet-friendly and as safe as possible.
Do you hear the heavy panting of a dozen dogs, fierce mushing and paws rapidly stomping on ice? Welcome to Anchorage, Alaska, and Iditarod, The Last Great Race on Earth®. Every year in early March, people of all walks of life - lawyers, doctors, miners, and more - gather with their team of dogs to participate in an homage to the dogsledding tradition. The first Saturday in March, which is March 7 this year, mushers will start their journey of more than 1,000 miles on a variety of terrains, facing the Alaskan cold.
