Dog Shows & SmilesHere Come the Girl Scouts

Marlene Groves and the Girl Scout Dog Show Patch

Lifelong Girl Scout and Bloodhound fancier, Marlene Groves created the Dog Show Patch for Girl Scouts of all ages to learn about dogs.

Donated to the AKC, the program is a great way for clubs to bring youth and dogs together, and a popular much-needed media focus for All-Breed shows.

Listen to Episode #41 as Marlene reveals how and why the program was created, and the journey with the AKC including Girl Scouts in their public outreach and media programs.
