Intended for kids, this book is a great explanation of what Dog Scouts do. It highlights the journey of a discarded dog through his rise to Dog Scoutdom.
The organization known as Dog Scouts of America (DSA) is introduced with its mission of improving the lives of dogs and their owners.
Dogs are trained to engage in sports and to participate in other healthy activities. The visually appealing full-color photos show canine members and various functions, and are paired with succinct descriptions of adoption, joining DSA, earning badges, and supporting community-service activities.
Dog Scout Troops are organized across the nation, with some helping to raise money for various organizations, such as the Salvation Army, firefighters, and cancer research. DSA dogs participate in nursing-home activities and read-to-a-dog in public libraries to boost the confidence of children learning to read.
Whether there is DSA Troop in your local area doesn’t matter – you can still be a member, and your dog can still be a Scout!
