What is a Dog Easter Egg Hunt?

Posted on 03.24.2022

Before the pandemic days, Treats Unleashed would have an annual Easter Egg Hunt for dogs and their pet parents at our Ladue location. We've not been able to hold our event since the Spring of 2019, though, and many pet parents may have forgotten and new Frequent Barkers may not know about it. So what does an Easter Egg Hunt for dogs look like, exactly?

On the Saturday of the weekend before Easter, pet parents arrive at our Ladue shop to find hundreds of plastic eggs scattered on the lawn. Eggs are filled with treats and other surprises for you and your pets to discover. Be on the look out for a golden egg too - which wins your pup a prize basket filled with goodies! There are three sections to the Easter Egg Hunt - one for small dogs, one for medium dogs, and one for large dogs. Pet parents gather around the roped off perimeter of each area with their pet. Once the hunt starts, you can pick up the eggs that your dog touches with their nose (but they must touch it first!). There will be two hunts this year, at 10 am and noon.

Besides being a bit of seasonal fun for our pet friends, the Easter Egg Hunt also benefits the St. Louis English Bulldog Rescue. Every registration fee of $5 is donated directly to them as the beneficiary of our event. We'll also have raffles available, where the price of tickets purchased also qualify as a donation!

Is there more than just the eggs? Yes! We will have vendor booths with samples available for your pets, a free photo booth set up by our friends at Pets & People Portraits, an appearance by the Easter Bunny, and so much more!! In addition to all of this fun, visitors will be able to see all of our new renovations at our Ladue shop, which has more than doubled in size and now includes grooming services and a self serve dog wash! You can even meet our new groomer, Ashley, and she can get to know your pets.

There's so much to be egg-cited about this year! We hope to see everyone there on Saturday, April 9. Join us for St. Louis' largest egg hunt for pets! Register online here for just $5 per pet.

Saturday, April 9, 2022 at Treats Unleashed Ladue (8861-B Ladue Rd). This is a rain or shine event. No retractable leashes, please.
