Over 200 Dogs to Scavenge Downtown Downers Grove
Downers Grove, IL – The downtown area will be invaded with dogs from all over scavenging not for trash, but for tasty morsels provided by Happy Dog Barkery. The 4th Annual Happy Dog Scavenger Hunt will take place on Sunday, October 21st with start times between 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. The cost per dog will be $7.00 and registration is required. Retractable leads will need to be locked at 6 feet during this event.
Check in at Happy Dog Barkery to receive the scavenger hunt and let the sleuthing begin! New to this year’s scavenger hunt will be photo challenges, a food demonstration, and rescue organizations West Suburban Humane Society and Midwest BREW (Beagle Rescue, Education & Welfare) will be on hand to participate in the fun. Both rescues will receive a donation from the event’s proceeds.
As in years past, the human participants will answer questions, riddles, and puzzles about the historic downtown area, doggie facts, or Halloween fun. A correct response means a delicious treat for the four-legged companions! At the conclusion of the scavenger hunt, each doggie participant will receive a special prize for a job well done and the human companion will be entered in a special drawing.

More About Happy Dog Barkery
Happy Dog Barkery brings dog treats to a new level. Towards the back of the store are two food displays that a customer could expect to find in a bakery. But instead of cookies, you'll find liver cakes, bacon cheddar muffins and dozens of other homemade doggie treats. Toys and other accessories can also be found throughout the store, which also houses a separate dog grooming business. These two stores make a great excuse to take your dog downtown for a day.
