MANDAN, N.D. (AP) - A 15-year-old Mandan girl aiming to earn the highest honor offered to Girl Scouts will build an obstacle course for dogs this summer.

The city is footing the bill for up to $800 in supplies so Cara Weigel can bring the play area for pooches to Dog Town park. The Mandan High School sophomore plans to incorporate a cement culvert, a weave pull, various jumps and ramps in her obstacle course.

Weigel joined the Girl Scouts when she was in first grade, the Bismarck Tribune (https://bit.ly/1JLBXKJ ) reported. She’s now a member of Troop 87109 of the Dakota Horizon Girl Scouts and is looking to earn her Gold Award.

“I’ve had a fun time with my friends being in Girl Scouts, meeting new friends and it will look good when I apply for colleges,” she said.

Weigel’s family owns a yellow Labrador tetriever named Diamond. Her parents will help her build the dog course along with volunteers they hope to recruit.

“I hope people take their dogs there to train, and the people get a little exercise themselves,” Weigel said.
