Squaw Valley is famous for its beautiful scenery, challenging trails, and amazing landscape. So when the idea for a festival that celebrates our four-legged friends came up, it was endorsed wholeheartedly by the village. When the first Peaks and Paws festival was launched it was a huge success. Surprisingly, it wasn’t just the dogs that had the best time; humans tagging along, had a blast. Today you can’t tell who’s having more fun. Not that it matters much. As long as people and their dogs keep showing up, it’s a good sign the festival is filling a need in the community.
Peaks and Paws is usually a two-day
One way to make everyone have fun together is to get both humans and dogs in the water. Splash Dogs is in every way as much fun as it sounds. The pool is big enough for the dogs who jump in from the dock and can get quite excitable. You’ll want to introduce your dog to the exit ramp first and foremost, that way if the dog panics they’ll know how to get out of the pool. Throw a toy in the water to help the dog jump in after it and make a big splash.
More Dog Friendly in Tahoe Events
Besides Splash Dogs, there are other events that both dogs and their owners can take part in. There are hikes, fetching contests, and many other delightful games for dogs. As for humans, they do enjoy the food, wine, and craft beer flowing throughout the two days. Yappy Hour offers discounts on the beverages as well as dog treats for your furry companion. What better way to enjoy a happy hour?
