The Easter Egg Hunt for Dogs is a fun event held each year on Good Friday. It is a lot of fun for families and their dogs. And the event raises funds for National Service Dogs
Are you like us and always looking for something fun to do with your dog?
We are always on the look out for fun events to do as a family and that include our dogs. So when we heard of the National Service Dogs annual Easter Egg Hunt for Dogs, we were in!
The first time we attended the Egg Hunt for Dogs was Good Friday (Easter weekend) in 2008. We took Maggy and Brody all the way to Bronte Creek Park so that they could enjoy the event. We didn't know what to expect, and it was cold and icy that day. But we enjoyed it so much that Marcia decided to bring it to Niagara.
It was in 2012 when Marcia, along with her friend Marcie, teamed up to bring the Egg Hunt to Niagara. 7 successful years later, we are excited to be hosting this years event at Charles Daley Park. As always, it is on Good Friday.
Join us for the 2019 Easter Egg Hunt for Dogs in Town of Lincoln at Charles Daley Park. This is a fun event for you and your dogs, and a way to raise money for a wonderful cause; National Service Dogs.
How does the Egg Hunt for Dogs work?
Each year, thousands of plastic eggs are filled with dog treats and hidden over a defined area of a local park. Each egg contains a dog treat and a sticker, representing a chance to win one of hundreds of great prizes. Dogs on leash, along with their family gathers up eggs and stickers.
