Day Camp: Off–Leash Play Groups

Day Camp consists of a fun, safe, stimulating, off-leash experience for dogs during the day while owners are busy with work or family. Team members (counselors) are supervising the groups constantly. Using canine leadership skills and positive reinforcement, our counselors ensure dogs interact appropriately.

We value the experience of your dog and place a high priority on keeping playgroups safe and enjoyable for all participants. Before attending off-leash day camp, your dog will undergo a thorough evaluation process to make sure Day Camp is appropriate and enjoyable for them. This process is individualized based on your dogs personality, energy level, and needs. We currently have a wait list for evaluations. If you are interested in Day Camp for your dog. Please fill out the Welcome Form to be added to our evaluation wait list. A team member will review it and contact you with information on the evaluation and next available evaluation appointment.

Day Retreat: Individual Accommodations for the Day

Day Retreat service starts with individual accommodations for the day and a 15 min nature hike (or combination of nature hike, play and/or cuddling with a counselor). Other enrichment activities can be personalized to your pet’s preferences and can include extra treats/enrichment toys (like stuffed Kongs).

What your pet(s)’ day will look like:

  • Day Camp: Your dog will enjoy off-leash free play most of the day. Counselors are constantly in the same room with the day campers to monitor play and safety. Counselors also interact with dogs to practice group obedience such as group sits, follow-the-leader, recall, and other games. We also incorporate nap times into our Day Camp schedule. Exhaustion is not a measure of our success. Yes, you can expect your dog to be ‘worn out’ at the end of a Day Camp visit, but total exhaustion is not our goal. When dogs get overtired accidents and fights are more likely to occur (think of children in preschool, without naps the children would become very cranky, irritable, and do not have a good time). Dogs naturally have a play-nap rhythm in their days, providing nap times mirrors this rhythm and promotes good mental health. Nap times also allow for your dog to safely have a midday meal or treat, it’s hard work to be a dog! Therefore, we incorporate nap times into our facility’s Day Camp daily schedule. Typically nap times are from 10-11 am and 2-3 pm. These times may vary day to day as needed depending on the schedule and energy level of dogs in Day Camp for that day.
  • Day Retreat: Your dog will stay in an area they find comfortable. This may be in one of our suites (if available), in our office, or in a large crate. We get to know your dog to find the best fit for them. The base price of a Day Retreat includes 2 walks. Other activities can be added on to give your dog a personalized and fun-filled day!
