Are there health benefits of Dogie Day Camp?
Yes!!! Besides being super fun and meeting new friends, regularly attending an interactive doggie day camp can support your dog's health and well being overall. Your pup can improve on their social skills, it can help separation anxiety, and boost that confidence level some dogs need to be able to be the best companion for you and your family. This is all just by playing with their new/old dog and human friends!
What happens if my dog has a medical emergency?

In the event your dogs gets injured, our staff members are able to administer first aid, asses the injury and notify you of the incident, we first try your selected business, however if we need to see a vet and yours can't fit us in, we will use the bet we have on call to assist.
What will your dog be doing all day?
We're glad you asked! Your dog will get plenty of time to socialize with a group of dogs while under the watchful eye of our Attendants who will guide and teach the pups proper play as well as structured down time if here longer than 4 hours.
How do you determine what play group my dog will be in?
First we do a meet and greet with your dog to determine their personality. Once that is established we pair them with other dogs who they will match with. If they need time to adapt to the daycare we can accommodate that as well.
Can my dog attend if he/she is fearful/aggressive/reactive?
In most cases, yes. That is why we require all dogs to be evaluated. We have the experience and knowledge on how to ease your dog into the situation. It is our mission to help socialize as many dogs as possible. We may require enrollment in our one-on-one basic skill sessions during the day-camp visit.
What is the vaccination protocol?
Dogs should be vaccinated to prevent the spread of diseases. All our guests must be vaccinated against parvovirus, rabies, distemper, canine influenza and bordetella. Proof of all vaccine records must be sent to us via email for your pup's profile file.
What's the dog-to-staff ratio?
Taking care of several dogs is not easy. So, unlike some of there camps where the ratio is 25-30:1. Our average ration has been 15:1. We always have 2 staff members on duty from 7am to 7pm, and add more as the guest increase.
How are the dogs grouped?
Not all dogs get along with each other. To ensure the safety of your dog, the manager assigns the group based on factors such as size, age and even temperament of personality.
