Put your dog to the challenge - try new dog park agility course
Put your dog to the challenge and try out the new agility course installed at Strawberry Fields for Rover Off-Leash Park. The course includes two double-plank jumps, an adjustable tire jump, adjustable fire hydrant jump, the T-bone tunnel, weave poles and more. Agility equipment was purchased through funds raised at the annual Marysville Poochapalooza Outdoor Dog Event that will celebrate its 10th anniversary on the second Saturday in July 2015.
Thanks, community for helping support M-DOG Pet Food Drive for food bank
Thank you, and a big "woof" to everyone who donated this holiday season to the M-DOG Pet Food Drive to support the Marysville Community Food Bank and the families served. In all, we collected about 280 lbs. of bagged and canned food for dogs - and cats, too! Special thanks to donation site partners Haggen Food & Pharmacy, Marysville Co-Op Supply, Grocery Outlet and Macpherson's Realty.
Strawberry Fields for Rover now has an agility course to bring out the competitor in your dog! Still some minor additions, but try it out! The course includes plank jumps, adjustible tire and hydrant jumps and weave poles incorporated into the existing T-bone tunnel pipe and log cross. Funds raised at Poochapalooza Outdoor Dog Event.
M-DOG recently installed a new park bench at Strawberry Fields for Rover thanks to a gracious donation from Marysville's Roy Robinson Chevrolet * Subara * RV. Huge thanks to Roy Robinson!
Thanks, March volunteers including Scout Kyle Coon completing his information kiosk Eagle Scout project, and the fantastic turnout by the Little Rascals 4-H Club led by Nicole Buell, who had a great time helping M-DOG volunteers at the work party and helping install the small-dog area to be completed by the end of April.
