Doggie U K9 Academy and Long Island Pet Professionals will be hosting a special Easter Egg Hunt just for the dogs on Friday, April 18, 2014 from 7pm to 9pm. The dog who finds the most treat filled eggs in a 2 minute time period, wins a Easter Basket filled with, yes you guessed it doggie toys, treats and pet products!

Aside from all the fur flying, eh em, egg flying fun that Fluffy and Buster will be having while doing their best ‘nose-work’ to find the most eggs, this event will benefit Live.Love.Bark Dog Rescue group. Live.Love.Bark is the non-profit rescue group that works directly with the Islip Animal Shelter and Adopt-A-Pet Center, and Doggie U is thrilled to be able to donate a portion of the proceeds to the event.

Each dog that hops into the Easter Egg Hunt ring will have their pet parent pay $10 to go to participate in the egg hunting. They will be given 2 minutes to sniff out the most doggie treat filled eggs. The owner will go into the ring with their leashed dog and each egg the dog finds, the owner will put into well, and Easter Basket!

“We love this idea of having fun, celebrating spring and teaching the dogs that come to our first Easter Egg Hunt and a little nose-work and training at the same time! And we are thrilled to be helping Live.Love.Bark and the Town of Islip Animal Shelter as they are our neighbors down the block,” said Rolissa Nash, Co-Owner of Doggie U K9 Academy. “We love giving back to the community and working with our local rescue groups and animal shelters.”

Long Island Pet Professionals will be providing the winner with the Easter Basket filled pet products.

The event is being held from 7pm to 9pm and guests are asked to bring their leashed dogs to join in on the fun. The cost is $10 per dog to enter the Easter Egg Hunt. Light refreshments for humans and dogs alike will be served.
