WALTON COUNTY, Fla. (WJHG) - The dog days of summer are here and what better way to celebrate than with a furry friend. In this week's Summertime Learning, we take you to Dog Harmony's Kids and Canines Camp.

"Finn is a Dog Harmony Rescue," one volunteer said.
Kids are learning how to interact with four-legged friends like Finn at Dog Harmony's Camp.
"He came in to Dog Harmony and when he first came in, he was terrified of people, and now he's social, he hangs out, he gets along with kids, other dogs," a volunteer said.
Campers get to work with Dog Harmony rescue pups and alumni, learning how to properly train them, make treats and toys, and, of course, have fun.
"We learn how to approach dogs that are shy, hyper-active and how to deal with them when they jump, I've had a blast being able to see all the dogs," Camper William Hughes said.
This is one way Dog Harmony educates the community in order to keep dogs from the shelter.
"I just like to enrich that relationship and that bond between canine and human and just give everybody a better life. Dogs bring so much joy, and trained correctly, treated correctly it's just a win-win for everybody," Founder of Dog Harmony Nancy Brown said.
Learning tricks and giving treats in the hopes of making kids and dogs feel more comfortable.
If your child is interested in the Kids and Canines camp, the next session will be July 24th.
