Dog Lover’s Weekend

Bring your four-legged best friend for an action-packed weekend in doggie heaven

April 16-19, 2020

If your dog could read, we guarantee he d be signing up for this weekend!

As a dog lover, you know how hard it is to find places that welcome your canine companion to travel with you. Not only do we welcome them here at Gunflint Lodge, we make a big fuss over them a few weekends each year. They are our preferred guests although we let them bring their owners with them, too.

For you, we have dog biscuit baking recipes available, dog obedience talks and more. For your four-legged friend we have our own K-9 Olympics, dog socials and more. If your dog has grown up in the city, she’ll think she’s died and gone to doggie heaven with all the wonderful wild smells and places to run around here.

This year’s courses will be:

Reliable Recall~60 minutes

Having a reliable recall is something that could save the life of your dog.  Discussion will surround all the reasons dogs have for not responding to a recall, and what methods humans can implement to develop a fast, prompt recall, despite the world’s distractions. Time during the workshop will allow handling teams to work, ask questions and be individually coached.

*Teams should bring soft treats, long line/leash

Tricks for life~60-90 minutes

Trick training is fun for everyone involved. Discussion will surround reasons for training tricks, it is not just for showing off anymore, and various methods used in trick training.  Demonstration will involve specific tricks, their broad usefulness, and time for each team to work on the highlighted tricks with coaching.

*Teams should bring soft treats, leash, mat/towel or small blanket for the dog.

  • 3 nights accommodations in a lakeside fireplace cabin
