Dog Scouts!? What the heck is Dog Scouts?

Glad you asked!

Dog Scouts of America (DSA)

Dog Scouts of America is very similar to other scouting organizations, except the DOGS are the scouts!

DSA is a non-profit organization that is based in Michigan and is spreading nationwide through troops in various areas. It promotes responsible pet ownership, lots of fun activities for people and their dogs, education of dog owners and the general public on many topics, and fund raising or other assistance for animal shelters, breed rescues, and other charities.

They offer week long camps in the summer for people and their dogs to learn and demonstrate many different skills for which they can earn badges. At this time, over 70 different badges are offered. Some of the activities for which badges can be earned include: Water Rescue, Flyball, Agility, Therapy dog, Hiking & Backpacking, Herding, Search & Rescue, Carting, Scent Discrimination, 'Naked Dog' Obedience, Frisbee, Tricks, and Community Service, just to name a few.

Troop 107

Our local troop is the Buckeye Blue Grass Brigade otherwise known as the BBGB's. We serve the Cincinnati Ohio tri-state area (Ohio/Ky/Ind.). It was started in November of 2000 by Chris Puls and Sheila Bromwell. (Sheila has since moved back to Michigan) Chris has over 20 years of experience with dog training, competeing, behavior counciling, and loves working with animals. Our troop is one of the largest and most active in the international organization!

Troop activities include week-end walks at local parks, camping trips (in cabins), fund raisers, pet therapy promotion, public education, fun and educational monthly meetings and much more! Our goal is to have fun! We also strive to teach people how to make their pets a valued, well behaved family member and promote canine good citizens with responsible owners.
