Entering and Exiting the Building
For your dog's safety, we require dogs to be leashed at all times when entering and exiting the building. We strongly discourage the use of retractable leashes; however, if you use one for your pet, please ensure the leash is restricted to a maximum 5 feet. Although many dogs get along beautifully in camp, being restrained on a leash causes different reactions, therefore, we ask that you keep your dog under your control and away from other leashed dogs.
Drop off for Dog Daycare
Dogs must be dropped off for daycare no later than 9:30 a.m. If you are a first-time client, we recommend that you drop off no later than 8:00 a.m.
Pick up times for Boarding or Daycare
Dogs must be picked up by 6:00 p.m., except for Sundays, when we are only open 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. for pick up of boarding dogs. With prior approval, for an additional charge, dogs can be picked up by 8:30 p.m. any day of the week.
Food for lunch during Dog Daycare
If your dog is under 1 years old, staff will provide lunch for your dog if you bring a Tupperware type container, clearly labeled with your dog's name. If lunch is provided in a plastic bag, a $3 charge will be applied. For dogs over 1 year old, a $3 fee will be charged if you provide food for lunch.
Vaccinations, Heartworm Medication and Flea/Tick Preventative
Dogs attending daycare, or those who are boarding, are required to have the following vaccinations:
* Rabies no later than 16 weeks old.
Please note Bordetella does NOT prevent all "kennel cough" type illnesses. Like humans, there are many variants that cause upper respiratory infections similar to actual Bordetella that causes canine coughing.
Although not required, it is HIGHLY recommended your dog is vaccinated against:
* Canine Coronavirus
* Canine Influenza
All dogs are required to be on flea and tick preventative, at all times. It is recommended you talk to your vet about the best choice for your dog, but would err on the side of caution, when purchasing from big box stores and even pet stores. We do allow the use of Seresto Collars.
We highly recommend the year-round use of a 5-way heartworm medication such as Interceptor Plus. Heartworm medications such as Interceptor Plus, not only prevents heartworm, but also aids in the prevention of hook, whip, round and tape worm. Did you know tape worm is contracted by eating fleas?
We are fully stocked with anything your dog may need while at camp. Please keep all personal items such as toys, blankets, or dog beds at home where they will be safe!
All medication should be clearly labeled with the pup's name and include written instructions (either attached to medicine or entered into our Petexec portal). There are no additional fees for staff to administer.
Knowledge is power! Please make sure we know as much as possible about your loved one so we can provide the best possible stay for them! We also understand how scary it can be to leave your family member behind. We encourage you to check in as much as possible to help you too!
