A “Dog Team” Production!
Several years ago, in the heat of the Dog Days of Summer, participants determined that everyone who completed the tour would become a member of “The Dog Team“. Since that time, numerous individuals have smiled at the summer camp style of such a concept, only to find themselves searching for a proper nickname as they near the end of the event. We hope you too will feel the pride that comes with being part of the “Dog Team”.
