Don't miss agility fun and doggy stuff swap to benefit Horses with H.E.A.R.T. Sunday
Heidi Dahms-Foster Special to the Tribune
The Quad City area's Horses with H.E.A.R.T., which, since 1993, has provided all the benefits of horseback riding and companionship to people with disabilities, has had a rough couple of years. Now, the organization has a permanent home in Prescott Valley, and it is raising money to make the move. That takes care of those of you who love horses! Now, dog lovers, it's your turn.
On Sunday, Jan. 24, Fun 4 K9Z Agility is conducting an Agility Fun Day from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Kennel Kamp Village, 9049 E. Florentine Road in Prescott Valley. Your donation of $10 to Horses with H.E.A.R.T. gets you into the entire afternoon of fun.
If you've seen agility on TV or attended a local trial, and thought you might like to try this great sport with your dog, this is a perfect way to introduce yourself. Kennel Kamp's trainers will help you and your pet safely try out some of the obstacles, and then you can join in canine musical chairs, relay races, and more. You can also see an introduction to canine "nose work."
Now here's another great part of this day. If you are an animal lover, you have tons of leashes, collars, brushes, toys, coats, and other pet paraphernalia that you no longer use. On Sunday, bring it to the Doggy Tack Swap, and swap it for something new for Fido.
