    An Easter Egg Hunt That Supports a Worthy Cause

    National Service Dogs trains service dogs for Autism and PTSD. Every Good Friday they have an Easter Egg Hunt for dogs as a fund raiser for their organization in 8 Canadian cities: Brampton, Calgary, Guelph, Kitchener, London, Oakville, St. Catharines, and Windsor.

    Cost is $25 per family and they encourage pledge forms as well. Visit their website for more information. (You can also attend virtually.)

    Don’t live near those cities? Here’s how to have an Easter Egg Hunt at home.

    How to have an Easter egg hunt for your dog at home.

    When you hide your eggs for kids you can’t get all that creative because if they can’t find them easily, kids get frustrated. Not so with dogs. They’ll find their eggs using their sense of smell so you can have loads of fun hiding your eggs. The harder it is for them to find the egg, the more excited they get.

    Please do NOT give your dog chocolate eggs or bunnies for an Easter treat. Chocolate is toxic for dogs.

    Pet MD says, “Chocolate contains substances known as methylxanthines (specifically caffeine and theobromine), which dogs are far more sensitive to than people. Different types of chocolate contain varying amounts of methylxanthines. In general, though, the darker and more bitter the chocolate the greater the danger. For instance, 8 ounces (a ½ pound) of milk chocolate may sicken a 50-pound dog, whereas a dog of the same size can be poisoned by as little as 1 ounce of Baker’s chocolate.”

    If your dog did eat chocolate, visit Pet MD for toxic symptoms, a toxicity calculator based on your dog’s weight & what they ate, and a toxicity chart based on the most common chocolate products.
