I am SO behind on my blog posts. Don’t judge me – travel tends to slow me down! I absolutely love traveling with my son, but it sure is hard to keep up with posting. Anyways, you’re not here for excuses. You’re here for PHOTOS!
Recently we were invited by my good friend Kama of Chi Pets to visit a dinosaur exhibit in Scottsdale, AZ – Pangaea Land of the Dinosaurs. We couldn’t pass up the incredible experience, so we met with 20+ people AND dogs to come face to face with dinos. The excursion was meant to be a socialization and training outing, and it was SO much fun!
Pangaea Land of the Dinosaurs in Scottsdale, AZ
Let me preface by saying that Pangaea Land of the Dinosaurs is NOT dog-friendly. The director made an exception for us because 1) we were a large group who were going to pay admission and 2) all of the dogs in attendance were well-trained as agility competitors, animal models or something of the sort. We also took over the exhibit before hours of operation, so our group were the only ones there. However, if you want to visit Odysea in the Desert (there are several different museum tours and activities there), Coffee Cove IS dog-friendly!
Around 9am, our large group made our way into the dinosaur exhibit. I didn’t know what to expect, other than extremely large dinos staring into my eyes. And I wasn’t disappointed.
What struck me most initially was how colorful everything was. None of my photos are edited for color. The exhibit was just that bright and brilliant!
The exhibit itself wasn’t large, but the pathway was lined with animated dinosaurs and information plaques. There was plenty to keep the eyes and mind occupied.
Wynston expressed zero fear. All of the dog were super brave, even the tiniest ones! Wynston was completely unfazed by the noises and movement. To him it was just another fun adventure!
We had such an awesome time with our human and doggy friends. Outings like this one have been a huge contributing factor for Wynston’s confidence. These excursions truly add a fun factor to socialization and training. Plus, it’s a great way for dog parents to get together!
Since we travel a lot I’m not often available for group activities, but I take advantage whenever I can! I can’t wait to see everyone again! And to anyone interested in Pangaea Land of the Dinosaurs, I HIGHLY recommend it!
Oh, and here’s a random photo of Wynston sitting on a polar bear outside of the exhibit. Because…why not?!
