What to Expect at Day Camp
We want each and every guest to have the best possible daycare experience. To create a fun and safe environment, we:
- Build each playgroup with dogs of like sizes and personalities so that each guest can enjoy a stress-free, fun excursion.*
- Allow no more than six dogs per playgroup in order to allow for maximum supervision for every interaction.
- Provide supervision by well-trained staff in dog training and behavior.
- Give playgroups two play sessions each day — one in the morning and one in the afternoon.
- Offer medical care to pets with health conditions.
- Take pets to their own runs in between play sessions where they can relax and have some time alone.
*Each dog will need to go through a temperament assessment so that we know how well they get along with other dogs and how their personalities mesh with others!
Requirements for Daycare
Safety is our top priority at daycare, so we have several requirements for your pet to go through before they’ll be able to stay with us. These include:
- Temperament assessment. We start by taking into account your pet’s age, breed, temperament, and previous experiences to determine the best playgroup match for them. Then, we’ll take your dog out with us and a small number of dogs to see how they interact and if they get along with the other dogs. As long as everything goes well, your pet will be able to camp with us!
- Up-to-date vaccinations. Dogs need the following vaccines before they are allowed to camp with us: Rabies, DHPP, and Bordetella.
- Parasite-free. Your pet will need to be free of all parasites and we require a negative fecal exam within 12 months of their stay as well as no signs of external parasites. If any parasites are found on your pet, they will be treated at an additional cost to you. All dog boarders and daycampers should be receiving monthly heartworm and flea/tick prevention. We will administer a dose at admission for pets that are not current.
