The Amazing DOGGY NYC Scavenger Hunt
Scavenger hunts are always a hit, but a scavenger hunt that uses your dog to perform tasks and get clues? We're in, obviously! Grab your pup and as many friends as you want on your team (tickets are per dog), and head to Central Park for an afternoon of canine/human bonding. After the hunt there'll be a party, and all participants will receive a “doggy bag” with loads of goodies for you and Rover.
