What are the requirements my dog has to meet in order to participate in
To be considered for day camp, dogs must be current
be on an effective flea and tick preventative,
and not be aggressive or extremely dominant. In order to ensure the comfort and safety of all of our
day camp participants, a temperament evaluation is required prior to participation. This evaluation helps us determine if
day camp is right for your dog. It also helps us determine which playmates your dog will have the most fun with so that we can place him or her in an appropriate play group.
Please call us to schedule a time for you and your dog to come in for the temperament evaluation. We will guide you through the process, including completion of applicable
forms, and answer any questions you may have. The initial enrollment visit takes about one hour and is essential to your dog’s successful participation in day camp.
Can my puppy attend
Day camp can be very beneficial for puppies, as it provides a wonderful socialization experience. We welcome puppies who are
emotionally mature enough to enjoy group play activities. If our temperament evaluation
day camp may be too intimidating for your puppy and he or she needs a little more time to grow up, we recommend first trying our
care program on a day visit basis. We will watch over your "little one" with extra TLC, special attention and nurturing activities designed to help ensure he or she grows into a confident adult dog.
