Come and have some Halloween spirited fun with your canine and the Dog Star Ranch staff!  We will set up trick and game stations through out the Special Use Park and 24 acres of nature trails known as the Canine Frontier.  There will be costume contests so get your thinkin’ caps on and get creative!  This will be a leashed event and all proceeds go to help dogs like Ace find their way to their forever homes.

Chillity Contest 
This is open to anyone who has taken the Bark! or Chillity Classes.  We will set up an agility course in the training park.  For a donation to the Dog Star Ranch My Way Home program you can enter this contest and it will be judged by our three members of the DSR training team. 
First Prize: Tucker Out Special, Grooming Package, DSR tennis ball, and treats!
The contest will open at 1:00 pm and close at 2:00 pm.  Winners will be announced at the end of the event at 3:00 pm and on Facebook on Monday, November 4.

Scavenger Hunt
The Scavenger Hunt will open at 1:00 pm starting in the Special Use Park.  To participate in the hunt, we are asking for a $5 donation.  There will be seven stations throughout the Canine Frontier.  At each station you and/or your dog will be asked to perform a trick or game.  Each task you complete you will be given a ticket.  Some tasks may be more complicated than others and will be worth more tickets.  There will be an opportunity to earn 25+ tickets throughout the course.  At the completion of the hunt, you will put all your tickets in a jar.  We will randomly select the winning tickets at 3:00 pm.  You do not need to be present to win.

** If you don’t wish to participate in the hunt you are still more than welcome to go through the course.  Upon completing each task there will be treats for your pup.  To earn tickets that make you eligible for prizes you would need to participate in the hunt.
