Santa Rosa Beach, Fla.—Calling all dog lovers! Dog-Harmony, a dog rescue and education organization in Santa Rosa Beach, announced that it will host a kids’ camp, called Kids & Canines, on March 22 from 1 to 5 p.m. to teach children how to interact with dogs, both in the home and out, and what a dog rescue does. The funds from the $50 per child camp will go towards the renovation of the nonprofit’s new building.
Children, ages five to 12, will break up into groups and rotate through different stations like dog-toy making, humane education, dog handling and dog-treat making. All supplies will be provided, and each child will take home what he or she has made.
The camp will take place inside Dog-Harmony’s new building—237 Market Street, Santa Rosa Beach, Florida—which was acquired in early February.
Dog-Harmony is a nonprofit, volunteer-run organization in Santa Rosa Beach whose mission is to reduce the number of unwanted dogs at shelters through education, training, low-cost spay/neuter and microchipping. What makes Dog-Harmony different is that the focus is on training and support before, during and after the dog’s adoption, therefore building healthy, lifelong relationships between them and their humans.
To register, fill out the the following form after reading the Kids & Canines Terms of Agreement. Once the form has been submitted, you will receive a PayPal request. Once you’ve paid, your space is secured.
Dog-Harmony has teamed up with the Destin Library to host a lecture series over the next few months. From workshops focusing on educating children to teaching you the difference between service dogs and therapy animals, this series will cover it all.

The Hive Creative Consulting released a sponsorship package for Dog-Harmony and Grayton Beer Company’s Hops for Hounds dog walk and fun run. The Hive’s team is now allowing businesses in the local area to sign up to support Dog-Harmony and the event.
Hops for Hounds is the newest walk to celebrate the hounds that have our hearts as a family. This two-mile dog walk and one-mile fun run is designed for all ages. The walk starts at Grayton Beer Company’s taproom, takes a quick break at Idyll Hounds Brewery and loops right back to the starting point for the after party.
Registered walkers will receive an official walk t-shirt, “wag bag,” one complimentary Blueberry Blonde draft beer and, most importantly, a great family friendly morning with your hound.
