A NEW OFFER WITHIN THE PROJECT "CAMPING CUM CANE®" - dog trainer free of charge
This summer in the period from July 1st to September 10th, a dog trainer will be at your service - free of charge.
The ‘Camping cum cane®’ project facilitates the coexistence of campers who are dog owners and those who are not. Find out more in the text below. In addition to all the benefits of the project ‘Camping cum cane®‘, the campsite will provide a dog trainer at an off-leash area. This area is equipped with dog agility equipment (parkour).
The training program will take place as follows:
- 6-day group training session
- Individual training with education and sports
- Assistance with training on the equipment
Training sessions will take place every day in the morning and late afternoon, but the dog trainer will also be available in between sessions. Also, if you have problems with your dog's behaviour, you can contact the dog trainer. Check available dates for individual training session at the campsite reception.
In addition to the aforementioned training sessions, activities such as dog presentations and competitions (jumping into the water, the most beautiful dog, running on a leash, sprint racing, free presentation) will be organized.
Camp Slatina on the island of Cres has recognized that guests like to go camping with their dogs and has paid attention to this fact. In 2007, the camp implemented the 'Camping cum cane®' (Camping with Dogs) project. Camp Slatina is the first camp in Europe to implement such a project, which has been, according to guests’ responses, a real hit.
The 'Camping cum cane®' project was designed by Professor Ekard Lind from Austria. The project was implemented to allow dog owners, dogs, and guests without dogs an easier coexistence in the camp.
According to the project the camp has full signage related to camping with dogs in place. Beaches and showers for dogs are marked with special signs and there are signs advising that dogs must be kept on a leash and that dog faeces must be removed and disposed of in designated containers.
Camping with dogs could be a whole new experience for you and your family, especially your pet. Campers like to camp because of the feeling of freedom and closeness with nature, and your dog will surely like it as well. With its 'Camping with Dogs' project, Camp Slatina is an ideal place for camping with a dog and the island of Cres provides the possibility of long walks with your dog across the island.
Writer Margery Facklam once said “We give dogs time we can spare, space we can spare and love we can spare. In return, dogs give us their all. It's the best deal man has ever made“. Therefore, your dog deserves to be taken on your holiday with you, so just do it – Camp Slatina is waiting for you, and your dog.
