What we're about

We're similar to Boy and Girl Scouts except we earn our scout badges with our dogs. Dog Scouts of America is all about dogs learning good manners and good behaviors. We have social play get-togethers, dog walks and hikes. We encourage people to help their dogs be all they can be, and in the process we all have a lot of fun. http://dogscouts.org/base/about-us/what-we-...
