Barkitecture

 

BA1Ever feel like you’re in the doghouse?

Well, in this fun and creative event, we’ll definitely let the dogs out!  Your group – and man’s best friend – will come out a winner as you make a positive difference and leave a lasting impression in the communities you meet in.

 

Who You’ll Help…

Animal shelters around the world are doing their best to save animals from a tragic ending.   In addition to providing care and adoption services, they also administer training programs for new pet owners, outreach programs, and disaster assistance & rescue programs for animals in need during a natural crisis such as a hurricane.  These dog houses make great ‘incentives’ and giveaways to make their adoptions more attractive.

 

What You’ll Do…

BA2Your teams will compete in two ways:  doggone crazy competitions and doghouse building and design!

To begin, each team will receive the parts and tools to build a basic doghouse.  All the wood, supplies, hand tools and pieces are included.   Their job is to build the doghouse to the best of their ability.  Each one is a little different, so the fun is in discovering what creative ideas each team comes up with.

The crazy and creative part comes in as teams try to earn ‘extras’ in the Doggone Crazy Competitions!  Want some paint to make it pretty?  Better do well in the games!  Would you like a patio for the front of your house?  Be the first to solve all the dog-related puzzles!   Each of the Doggone Crazy Competitions will require different skills and talents from the team members, so strategy and planning is key when they choose their representatives in the games.

The Finale

BA3In a dramatic finish, we’ll invite representatives from the local animal rescue agency to share stories of their services and some of the pets they have found homes for.  Then, to choose the very best doghouse, we’ll bring out one of the “adoptable” pups, and set him loose in the center of the display.  The one he chooses to enter will be declared “Doggone Best!”

Designed to help make dreams come true for a very worthy non-profit organization, Barkitecture is sure to bring out the spirit in your group, and have them all rowdily singing “Who Let the Dogs Out!”
