Dog camp, when children and dogs learn to interact with each other in a correct, playful and respectful way. Children and dogs can make a fantastic combination. Studies have shown that children who handle pets are healthier, more social and more responsible.
In this way your son or daughter will get the chance to learn how to interact safely with your own family dog and with strange dogs in the neighbourhood. Uncertainty and anxiety can be overcome, children discover what it is like to take care of a dog and they can enjoy a new, fun and healthy hobby.
The dogs are all certified therapy animals and the supervisors are experienced and able to work with both children and dogs.
Fun, education with and about dogs! But also self-knowledge and learning how to function in group.

Overnight stays are not possible in Toscanzahoeve but there is a B&B nearby.
We also organize children’s parties with therapy dogs.
Do you want an original birthday or children’s party for your child and all of his / her friends? Where children and certified therapy dogs can enjoy time and play games together?
The parties take place in Aarschot. Indoors there is a spacious room available and a kitchen and toilet facilities. Outside the large garden area is safely fenced. We provide therapy dogs and guidance for 3 hours. We start by introducing the dogs and there is a short educational explication on how to deal with dogs. The dogs then walk freely among the children, joining in with the games. If some children prefer to play quietly there are also fun board games.
You can choose between 3 different menus for your party: hot dogs, pancakes or spaghetti.
We provide an all-in formula with no extra costs.
Contact us via email stating your choice of menu and all over practical details such as the number of participants and then we can find a suitable date.
At least one or two parents are required to stay with the children, among other things they help with the meals. These parents are entitled to a free drink. Other adults who wish to stay and participate or simply to observe are considered as additional participants and must pay.
