Requirements for Admission

Potential NEW client? We’re only allowing accepting new clients to board, if you sign up your dog for weekly daycare program. Because all of our canine guests play together as a group and are in close contact with our family, the following requirements need to be met in order to attend our dog camp:

Training level:

  • Responds to basic commands and house-trained (pups are an exception).

Social compatibility:

  • No history of aggression with humans

  • Social with other dogs (or passive) – but NOT aggressive.

  • If your dog has been bitten, pinned or attacked by another dog its important that we know, so we can schedule an exclusive assessment.

Health: Cannot be carrying any contagious infection or parasite. 

Vaccinations: Rabies,  DHPP or DAP, Bordatella (Kennel Cough).  Titers and formal alternatives may be accepted.

Neutered/ Spayed: Every dog must be neutered or spayed before sexual maturity.

Ticks & Fleas: Your dog must be on a flea program (between late April and October) and not have fleas. Flea collars are not acceptable substitutes. We will consider Homeopathic/ Herbal tinctures prescribed by an alternative vet.

Hygiene/ Grooming: Nails trimmed (especially if your dog likes to jump up), coat not malodorous. Do not bring your dog here if freshly SKUNKED, instead advise us and book a visit with your groomer and we will see you the following morning.

Separation Anxiety: If your dog is known to become highly stressed/ anxious in your absence, then a home based care facility may be more appropriate for their wellbeing.

Attend & Pass our Behaviour Assessment: your dog must demonstrate that they are social with strange dogs and not fearful (shy, timid and cautious are OK), and are reasonably obedient.

Please e-mail us the following information: your dogs name, their breed (please be very specific especially if a cross breed), age, weight, date neutered/ spayed? current on vaccines, health status, last date boarded, how often per week socialized with canines off-leash, level of obedience, your desired day care days, your mobile/ home ph. number, your city/town and include a picture of your pal if you have one.
