Hi OC Pup Scouts Community! It's officially our first blog post on here and we are so excited to get this blog started!
My name is Lindsey and I'm the Director of Marketing here at OC Pup Scouts. I'll be the gal behind our blog - bringing you everything from Pup Scouts news, local dog friendly places, at-home DIY's and training tips from our Pup Scouts Pack Leaders.
Our hope is that this blog provides you with a variety of ideas and ways to enrich and strengthen the bond that you have with your pup. Today we're taking a deep dive into our newest addition to OC Pup Scouts - our Badge Program and an inside scoop on how you can earn your first badges and reward!
So what is our Badge Program you ask?
It's basically a way for you and your pup to earn rewards for being a loyal Pup Scout. Just like the Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts, your pup can earn badges to add to their Pup Scouts bandanas when they complete a certain task with us. Once you collect a certain amount of badges, you can earn prizes and rewards like discounts off of your invoice, free products from our online shop and more.
Best of all, your pup can sport their bandana on our pack walks. And if your dog is anything like mine, they feel super special wearing bandanas or anything that makes them stand out in the pack. So not only will you get some cool rewards, but your dog will get a major confidence boost!
Let's talk badges...
So if you haven't already - you can purchase your Pup Scouts bandana in our online shop. Once you've got your bandana, my best advice would be to look at our individual badges and set your sights on earning your first three (which will then get you your first reward).
I'll put the link to our Badge Program page on our website, but here's the jist of the 10 badges we have and what you need to do to get them:
DOG OF THE WEEK
We love rewarding positive behavior and improvement in our dogs! We look out for dogs who are being well-behaved and all-around awesome on our walks and we choose one as our Dog of the Week! We feature a winner every Friday on our Instagram and if yours is chosen, you earn this badge!
