TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Troop 225 is not your average group of scouts. The scouts are actually dogs who are earning badges for good behavior. The main focus of the troop is teaching dogs how to behave and learn self control while not on a leash. The troop is sanctioned by Dog Scouts of America and consists of 30 Rose City Rascal members.

"The number one problem is behavior problems for dogs and that's why they end up in shelters," said scout leader Natalie Fletcher."We're hoping that if we can get more people involved to bring their less-than-perfect dog with them, we can cut down the population at shelters. We're a loving community where they can work on their dogs issues and not be judged."

Troop 225 will be hosting a mini-camp for dogs to learn and enjoy the outdoors. Activities will include behavior training, an agility course, hiking and much more.

The $425.00 cost covers lodging, meals, snacks, crafts supplies, training classes, use of camp equipment, trails, boats and docks.

There's room for 50 dogs to attend dog scout camp at the Camp Tyler Outdoor School.
