24th Annual Dog Games enjoy a no-kill refuge
Five Acres Animal Shelter, Purina Farms and the Spirit of St. Louis Samoyed Club have partnered for the annual dog games at Purina Farms.
The 24th Annual St. Louis Canine Games helps raise funds for Five Acres Animal Shelter in St. Charles, a no-kill shelter.
“It’s a good thing to do, plain and simple,” said Jeff Pech, president of the Spirit of St. Louis Samoyed Club. “Anytime you can help an animal shelter, obviously we’re all animal lovers, and dog lovers in particular. And that’s exactly why we partnered with Five Acres.
Games allow dogs to play, test their skills in dog sports and have a good time with their families.
“Dogs can go out, do things they’ve never been able to do before, for a nominal fee, and just have fun with their dogs. We kind of say it’s like taking your dog to the park. attractions,” Pech said.
Games included agility, flyball and scent work.
The Flyball game allows each dog to navigate the jumps of a course until they reach the end and activate the box to eject the ball.
The Race the Wind game shows you how fast your dog can run. Their speed captured with a radar gun.
All games are designed to be non-competitive and give dogs a chance to see what types of games and activities they enjoy.
“Any shelter without killing is much better than any other type of shelter. I don’t believe animals should have to die for people’s mistakes,” Michael Miller said.
