I think the magazine is available at off-leash dog parks in the TC area--I know there's usually a pile of some free local dog magazine available where they keep the donated baggies. I've also seen some at Petco and PetSmart.

That sounds cool!

I just got Siberian Husky Puppy, 4 mos old now, and I am going to attempt to teach him to find caches. That would be a good excuse to revisit some caches with the training. I have been to Ain't Life Grand by CAG three times now with one more visit due in the winter. Gotta hit all the seasons.

MMmmm.... I think a geocaching Dog event is in the works! (Can't you hear the gears grinding in my head?) All hids must have a treats for the pooch. You take the dog to the area, but he must find it. What do you think?

I'd love to have a geo-dog event. In addition to Storm the geo-dog we just got a beagle puppy - Willow. She should have a better nose for it and I hope I can get her to bark when she finds one. Storm finds a lot, but you have to watch her close because she doesn't do anything to tell you she found it. I've found several with very fresh Storm nose prints on them!

I can see a big fight in the works with SB "buddy" and my dog "cedo".
I got a bad feeling they both think they are the "alpha" dog.


I don't take "cedo" caching unless I know I can let her run "off leash". It just turns into a major pain when the leash get tangled in brush as she hunting thru brush.

That's why it is rare for Buddy to go caching w/me. He's just too much of a pain when he starts taking routes that work for HIM and not for ME Wink He's a little bit thinner around the mid-section and can fit through some areas that I can't Wink

How about the Off Leash Dog Park near coates? 16 acres of wooded trails and an open area all fenced in. There are picnic benches INSIDE the woods as well as out of the fenced area. This park opened only a few moths ago. I took Kopy there and it's pretty nice. There is no shelter there. So Late spring, early summer is the timeframe I have in mind. Dogs would not be a prerequisite, but highly encouraged.

Great idea! I can see a series of events travelling to different OL dog parks around the metro & state.
