Your First Visit...
Please contact us about one month prior to boarding or a couple of weeks prior to daycare to ensure you have the required vaccines which include:



Canine Influenza (first time your dog receives, it is one shot then a 2 week waiting period, then another booster)

Bordetella vaccine and negative fecal test within six months

Dogs also must be at least 4 months old, FIXED IF near 12 months old, friendly with other dogs, and in good health.

Your first visit is by appointment and is $20.00 (one dog) per paid when you make the appointment.  This includes a temperament test, walkthrough the facility, and getting the proper paperwork in order.  Your dog will be slowly added to the playgroup while you wait about 10-15 minutes.  Once we establish is your dog is comfortable, you will leave them for 1.5 to 2.5 hours depending on the time of the test and how your dog is reacting to group play.  Your vaccines must be received before the temperament test.

Camp Canine.

Why Camp Canine?
Dogs thrive in a social, interactive and playful environment. Dogs that chew, bark or are bad may not be getting enough attention or exercise.  Also, for boarding, they are not locked up in a kennel all day and night. They get hours of playtime with other dogs and our staff is with them as well.  We do suggest before boarding, you use our daycare services a few times so your dog gets comfortable being here. This will make their boarding experience much better.
Bring them to Camp Canine, 8,000 sq ft of Inside Play Areas With Access to Outside.  Separate Play Groups for Small Dogs and Medium to Large Dogs and Activity Level for Hours of Safe Play.
