Like walking or hiking with your dog(s) and also like geocaching?

Like walking or hiking with your dog(s), but haven't a clue what geocaching is?

Then check out GeoPup Sports on Facebook to learn more about how your dog can earn geocaching titles. https://www.facebook.com/groups/GeoPupSports/

Leo and Lily have earned their Beginner Seeker titles for finding geocaches, and their Beginner Tracker titles for finding a trackable (an item with a unique code that is moved from cache to cache). It's fun and (relatively) easy, and pretty much the only equipment you need are a leash and smart phone.

I promise that the actual certificates are fine. My scanner on the other hand...

Hmmm... part of an electrical box, or a geocache? Surprise, it's a geocache!

Who knew you could use these tins for something besides nosework?

Yes, that nano-sized cache container is TEENSY. It's not much larger than a pencil eraser.

Sometimes, caches hide in plain sight. I must have looked at this one a dozen times before figuring it out.

The trackable item we found was a little Jeep figurine.

Oh, and while you are on Facebook, check out the Outdoor Dog group https://www.facebook.com/groups/438259740246580/ to learn about titles you and your dog can earn for getting out and being active. They offer titles in walking (for us city types), hiking (for the more adventurous), paddling (or other human propelled watercraft) sports, boating (non-human propelled watercraft), and camping (RV and/or tent). A lot of times, we can make an outing do double duty, finding caches and adding distance towards our walking titles.
