Things to See and Do!

Come out and enjoy the day with us at Tails on the Trails 2009 from 9am to 3pm. We welcome every dog, every size, every shape to join us. There is so much to do besides hiking too: Games, food, vendors and so much more!

Take A Hike, Check Out Our Foster Dogs!
Leash up your dog, pack up your car and come to the park. Join us for a one- or two-mile hike in the park. Dogless people are welcome too! Hike in honor/memory of a person, pet, or as a donation. You may also choose to walk a foster dog. To learn more about hiking and how to register and our hike guidelines, please click here.

  • Foster Dogs: 9am - 3pm
    Check out our current foster dogs! Hikers who wish to walk one of our foster dogs must present a valid photo ID and must be 18 or older. However... dogs can be walked double lead (two leads attached to the dog, one held by an adult and one by a child.) We only have a limited number of foster dogs available to be walked - this will be on a first come first serve basis at the Foster Check out tent. We are asking for a $5.00 donation to walk one of our foster dogs.

My Angels, My Girls Book Signing: 9am - 3pm
Stop by and meet author Kellianne Peterson and buy your "SIGNED" copy of "My Angels, My Girls". A powerful, moving, and inspirational story by author Kellianne Peterson about her three beloved dogs Georgia, Sydney and Rem-Rem. My Angels, My Girls takes us on a four-legged journey through Kellianne’s heart and home. $5 of each purchase will be donated to TOTTSHR!

From funny anecdotes such as when one of her “girls” stole a pair of pliers from a visiting electrician and then hid them in a drawer to the harrowing description of how two of her “angels” helped save Kellianne by immobilizing her during a seizure, this is written by a dog lover for other kindred spirits. Her down to earth descriptions of a dog-centric life make this a pleasant page turner.

Visit The Memorial Candle Garden: 9am - 3pm
Pay tribute to a beloved departed animal with one of our memory candles. Each candle is approximately 6" X 3" and includes your pets name. Your candle will look similar to the one shown in the picture. Candles will be on display at the hike and then after the hike, the candle is yours to take with you. We are accepting orders now to have the hearts prepared in advance of hike day. Cost of each memory candle is a $20.00 donation to the rescue or $25.00 if you'd like a picture added. You can reserve your candle today with paypal by clicking here.

Weight Pull Demonstrations & Chance For Your Dog To Try It Out: 9am - 3pm
Weight Pull Demonstrations & Chance For Your Dog To Try It Out Come on out and test your paws at weight pulling courtesy of Sheryl and her two Malamutes Cinnabar and Sebastian! Sheryl is a member of the IWPA (International Weight Pull Association) as well as a member of the UKC PPAPBT Weight Pull Club, and the AMAEP (Alaskan Malamute Association of Eastern PA). Sheryl and her boys pull year round in IWPA, UKC (United Kennel Club), and AMCA (Alaskan Malamute Club of America) sanctioned weight pull events. Dog Pulling is akin to a tractor pull. Dogs compete to see who can pull the most weight 16 feet. They pull a wheeled cart on an earthen surface, or a sled on snow. The handler has no contact with the dog during the pull, so it is up to the dog's willingness to pull. Safety of the dog is of paramount concern. Since IWPA's organization in 1984, no dogs have been hurt in competition.

Mushing & Chance For YOUR Dog To Run In Harness: 9am - 3pm
Our friends at the PA Sled Dog Club will be offering demonstrations through out the day. Learn more about this fun sport that can be a great thrill for all dogs and their owners. He will even give you an opportunity to get your dogs paws wet in mushing. Your dog can have the opportunity to get fitted in harness and hooked up to a cart for a mushing experience! Please note that dogs should be comfortable around other dogs and being handled by people to participate.

Chance For Your Dog To Try Scootering: 9am - 3pm
If your dog loves to run, but you aren't so sure about the full mushing experience, try slipping your dog into a sled dog harness, rope him to a scooter, hop on the scooter and let him run. The dog and you become a mini mushing team!
