Adirondacks NY: Who Let the Dogs In To The Museum on August 6

Thursday, July 21st, 2011

Enjoy a special museum outing with your dog! Dogswill be welcome at the Adirondack Museum, Blue Mountain Lake, New York on Saturday, August 6, 2011. It will be a “pawsitively” perfect day for dog lovers and proud pet owners as “Dog Days of Summer” will return for a fifth year.

Explore the Adirondack Museum and enjoy a variety of doggy demonstrations, programs, and activities with your dog! All dogs are welcome when accompanied by well-behaved owners.

For everyone’s enjoyment, the event has a few simple rules and regulations for pups and their people: dogs must be leashed at all times; owners must clean up after their pets – special bags will be available; dogs will only be allowed on the grounds – not in the exhibit buildings; Doggy Day Care will be available throughout the day at no charge, with the understanding that dogs cannot be left for more than an hour; and poorly behaved or aggressive dogs will be asked to leave the museum grounds with their owners.

Always a highlight, the annual pooch parade will begin at 1:00 p.m. Costumes are encouraged! Five gift certificates to the Museum Store will be awarded
for the “most Adirondack,” “most natural,” “most stylish,” “most goofy,” and “most outrageous” costumes.

Champlain Valley K-9 Search and Rescue will be demonstrating how dogs perform the tough tasks of search and rescue. The K-9 Search and Rescue consists of Christopher and Shannon Bresett and others, who started the organization and now travel throughout the region. As part of the demonstration there are ramps, tunnels and a high-rise that resembles what the canines might encounter in disaster and wilderness situations. The dogs also show how they use their scent by seeing an explosion display of “Hide and Seek”. Champlain Valley Search and Rescue’s services were called recently in the aftermath of the tornadoes as they worked in Tuscaloosa, Alabama and Joplin, Missouri.

“Dog Days” demonstrations and activities also include: “Red Alert: Wet Labrador Coming Through!” with Ken Kalil; “Agility” with the Takes 2 to Q Agility Club; “Dancing With Dogs” with the Adirondack High Peaks Training Club; and “Pet Portraits” with artist Bev Saunders.

Presentations include “Kayaking with Your Dog” with Dorice Stancher, and “Tait’s Dogs” an exhibit tour with Curator Hallie Bond. Adirondack favorites, Bill Smith and Chris Shaw, will tell “Tall Tails” and share humorous stories and songs about people and their dogs.

“Dog Days of Summer” will also include an expanded agility course for visiting dogs with new seesaw, tunnel, pause table, tire jump, and boardwalk. Dogs and their owners can also take a ride on the pond in the museum’s reproduction Bisby Scow.

The event will include “Doggy Booths” featuring regional working dogs and organizations. Participants include: the Schenectady Chapter of Therapy Dogs; Tri-Lakes Humane Society; North Country SPCA; and Canines Can Do featuring information about Canine Good Citizens program. Dog owners and representatives will answer questions about the training, care, and work of special dogs. Jake Placid and Second Time Around will be selling special products to pamper your pooch.

Visitors are asked to bring a donation of animal food, toys, or cleaning supplies to the museum on “Dog Days.” A drop-off spot will be located in the Visitor Center. The museum will deliver donations to regional animal shelters.
