Welcome to Camp Canine!
Camp Canine’s staff members are certified and trained to ensure your dog has a great experience at our facility.
Please keep your dog on a leash while entering or leaving our facility. Do not allow your dog to approach other dogs or people. All dogs on the premises may not be dog friendly and behaviors can be influenced by being on leash and with their owners. All collars and leashes are removed once the dog is secure in our premises. If your dog has a flea collar, please remove it before bringing them in for their stay. We at times do put temporary identification collars on our lodging dogs, this ensures appropriate feeding and/or medicating of your dog.
We retain the right to remove a dog from the daycare program or our facility at any time if we feel it is in the best interest of the dog and/or our staff members.
Please make us aware of any recent issues or illnesses your dog may be experiencing. Tell us if there are any lumps, bumps, scrapes or sores on your dog. Inform us if there are any behaviors or conditions your dog may experience while under stress or while they have boarded previously.
Please provide someone that we will be able to reach as your emergency contact. We recommend it be someone who can transport your dog to the Vet in a non emergency situation, or that can care for your dog if it could no longer stay at our facility. For older dogs, we do require a local emergency contact.
If your dog is a picky eater, you may want to bring something to entice him or her to eat. (canned food, meal mixers, parmesan cheese etc.) If you are dropping your dog off after 2:30pm, you should feed/medicate your dog before dropping off
You are welcome to bring 1 blanket per dog (no beds) (preferably something that would fit into our washing machine if it was soiled), 1 toy and/or 1 bone per dog and no more than 2 types of special treats for your dog to help them feel more comfortable. If this is the first time your dog is boarding, you may even want to bring an item of clothing that has your scent to make your dog feel more relaxed. Please understand that anything you bring to put in your dog’s camp site may be ruined. (Dogs sometimes need a night to adjust to their new routine or on occasion a dog may also play with and/or destroy items in their campsite.) Please see our Paperwork Requirements & Policies for further information on the Department of Agriculture requirements of food storage, etc.
We can also add a groom, bath, or nail trim to your dog’s stay with us.
We will not put rawhides or anything we feel may be a choking hazard into your dog’s camp site.
When you pick up, we will inform you if your dog needs to be fed or needs medications. Please wait a few hours before feeding your dog upon their return home. Your dog(s) will be very thirsty and tired from the excitement of their stay. Give minimal water after returning home. After longer stays, it is normal for it to take a couple days for your dog to fully recover from their visit. Please contact us and let us know if you have any issues or concerns after you take your dog home.
