National Night Out

Who went to a National Night Out in their area?

Many of our volunteers and puppy raisers took their dogs to one of their local National Night Out events. They had a blast!

National Night Out is a crime and drug prevention event sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch. It's designed to raise awareness about crime and drug prevention and strengthen community spirit. Communities across the nation held National Night Out events. There are fun things for the entire family to do!

SSD Rio, Rossi, Star and Fire went to National Night Out at George Park in Harrisburg, PA. They walked around the many fire trucks and police vehicles with their handlers and enjoyed the music. Star met a police horse, and Fire watched people go up in a hot air balloon. Later, Rossi, Rio and Fire relaxed in the grass behind the fire trucks. They loved meeting all of the kids and families who stopped to visit and pet them! It was great way for the dogs to practice greetings, and get used to being around lots of people.
