Congratulations to DSA Troop 188 on being recognized as a  Top Dog Troop.

The Troop Recognition Program runs from Jan 1 through Dec 31 each year and started in 2008.  This optional program consists of various activities for which the troop can accumulate points.  Recognition would be given for reaching a certain level of points within the year. Most of the activities focus on troop member achievements and troop growth. This focus of this program is to reward troops for being active and helping in their communities.

Dog Scouts of America Troop 188 visited Berlin Town Hall where we donated five Pet Emergency Breathing Kits to Berlins first responder stations. This donation was made possible in part by the Lindgren family in loving memory of Ron Lindgren - a dedicated family man and dog lover, who proudly served his community with the South Kensington Fire Department for over 50 years, 9 years as Chief.

Thank you, Berlin PD, with K9 Casner, Kensington Fire Department, South Kensington Fire Department. East Berlin Fire Department and Berlin Fire Department for all you do to keep all members of your community (people and pets) safe!

Thank you Berlin Town Manager’s Office for the invitation.

Are you a first responder and would like a kit for your community? Reach out to Dog Scout Troop 188 at and click on the orange breathing kit photo link at the top of the page.
