You may think Easter egg hunts are only for kids, but lucky for us, this is a perfect activity for dogs too. This Easter season the Cleveland area has several fun dog Easter egg hunt events to get your dog out using his favorite sense – his sense of smell. Oh yeah, and his other favorite sense –taste, for all of the yummy treats he’ll find!
A couple words of caution: if you do have a dog that is very food aggressive, some of these events may not be the best for him. Dogs will be on the hunt for treats, so we want to keep things fun. Also, many of these events require you to register or purchase tickets in advance, so don’t delay.
Check out our calendar for other fun Easter photo events to take your dog to: http://dogsinthecle.com/dog-friendly-events/

Easter Egg Delivery
If you don’t have the most social dog but you want to have your own Easter egg hunt, Live Love Rescue can help you out. The rescue group will deliver 100, 50 or other quantities of treat-filled eggs to your home. Eggs will be delivered the night before Easter, and you have to order by April 10. You can also order candy-filled eggs if you want to get some for children, while supporting the rescue group (just don’t mix up the dog treats and kids treats if you are doing both!). Find out more information here, including what cities they’ll deliver to, here: https://liveloverescueohio.com/index.html
