New Guest Boarding & Day Camp

We require a visit by you with your dog(s) in advance of the first stay. This allows us to observe and assess your dog’ s behaviour among other canine guests to ensure your dog can play socially within a mixed group. You receive a tour and your pet enjoys playtime with our dog guests. Its a chance for them to becomes familiar with us, and build comfort and confidence that Camp Canine is a safe place – which greatly helps them adjust more readily when they come for their first stay. Please refer to our behaviour assessment page for details.

New Guest Boarding Info:

  • swimmingWe have a minimum of five nights for all first time guests. For young puppies, there is an additional per night charge which includes our life skills training and an extra meal.
  • Due to our level of busyness we won’t book a new guest’s FIRST STAY during a holiday or long weekend. If you are requiring a long weekend or holiday then booking a short stay prior will resolve that problem.
