Pooch Scoot 2013 Results
We all had a great time on the inaugural Pooch Scoot walk/run. The dogs were happy, got lots of treats (and even tennis balls). Their masters had a good time too on the rolling terrain through the neighborhood and trails. Animals as Natural Therapy thanks you too!
We still have T-shirts for sale – available at the Bellingham Tennis Club & Fairhaven Fitness 800 McKenzie Ave. Bellingham. Only $15!
A BIG thanks to our supporters PET STOP for the dog treats, TONY’S COFFEE for the delicious brew in the morning and post race, FRED MEYER for human snacks, and TURDEE TOTES for giving all of the dog owners a FREE Tote!
Join us for Pooch Scoot 2014 on Sunday, April 13th!
Start and end at the Bellingham Tennis Club and Fairhaven Fitness and enjoy a beautiful loop through the Fairhaven neighborhood and dog park on streets and trails.
Some funny questions we have had:
Q. Will there be prizes?
A. Yes! Top 3 Men & Women over all, 1st Dog to finish, Best Dressed Dog, Best Dressed Human & Dog Duo.
Q. May I bring a non-dog (Goat? Cat?)
A. Nope. Not even a hamster that could fit in your pocket. This event is for humans and dogs only.
Q. Do I have to leash my dog?
A. Yes! AND you have to hang on to the leash, clean up after your dog, and make sure you and pooch are well behaved.
Q. What if it is raining? Do I get money back?
A. C’mon. This is the pacific northwest! Wear a raincoat and enjoy some liquid sunshine. It feels good to be outside! All entries are NON-Refundable.
Q: Who is organizing this event?
A: Bellingham Tennis Club & Fairhaven Fitness with Hamster Endurance Training
Q: Why “Pooch Scoot”?
A: Because…..it seemed like it would be fun to organize an event in April – a 5K can be a challenge or warm up event depending on how much you (and your pooch) have been training. If you don’t have a training plan, why don’t you follow this 7 week training plan from the Mayo Clinic. Download it for free: Mayo Clinic 5K 7 Week Training Plan

Windy Acres provides a peaceful, secluded spot for our animal and human partners to practice their healing work. Over the past decade, ANT has touched the lives of thousands of children and adults. http://www.animalsasnaturaltherapy.org
