Why bring a dog to Day Camp?
The people who utilize this service love their dogs! The average dog owner is a busy, hard-working person who doesn't want their dog to be home alone all day. However, we have several clients who work at home but know that even one day of day camp helps make their dog a "better pet". For example, Dante the doberman’s parents love day camp because it transforms their 75 pound ball of energy into a dog who is “mellow, happy and tired.”

One of the philosophies we love to share with our human clients is “a tired dog is a good dog!” Many people don't realize how much exercise and stimulation a dog really needs--or how many behavior problems are the result of not getting enough. All dogs, but especially sporting breeds like Golden Retrievers, Labradors and Springer Spaniels, need much more stimulation than they routinely get.
Dogs also need socialization throughout their lives to remain well-adjusted to human and canine company. Regular, supervised interaction with other dogs is critical for puppies and helps older dogs to continue feeling confident.
It’s PAWSible! Day Camp can help to meet both these needs, providing dogs with the stimulation they require for wellness, and providing their humans with a happy, tired dog ready for a quiet evening!
How do we get our dog started!
Give us a call!  We'll have some questions first for you over the phone.  Then, going forward, we’ll arrange a brief intake appointment for you to see our beautiful facility and for us to meet your dog.
This meeting is an important part of our commitment to create a safe, fun atmosphere for our campers and to get to know a little bit more about you and your dog! There is a $20 charge for this 30 minute appointment.
In addition to meeting you, we’ll need proof that your pup is up-to-date on their rabies shot and free from parasites.  You will need to provide a copy of this report before you start camp.   
You can reach us at 413 527 7364. We look forward to meeting you and our new camper!
What hours are you open?
Day Camp is open Monday through Friday
Drop-off 6:30AM - 9:00 AM
Pick-up 4:15 - 5:45 PM
We schedule our day camp in four-week packages. We ask new campers to come for at least 3 days during their first week. This helps dogs settle into a routine! After that initial three-day week, you can schedule your dog for 1-5 days at camp each week.
Note:  If you are enrolled in a group class and you received a coupon for a free day, you ARE NOT  required to do 3 days,   This one day free pass is your opportunity to try out camp.  
How much does Day Camp cost?
Day Camp rates depend on how many days a week your dog attends camp. They are as follows:
Full Day Rates
1 day each week → $39.00/day
2 or 3 days a week  → $37.00/day
4  or 5 days a week →  $35.00/day
Half Day Rates
Whether you come for mornings or afternoons, half days are $26.00 a day.
Half day drop off and pick up time is between 11:30 a.m. and 1:00p.m. each day.

Are there any dogs that don't do well at Day Camp?
Day Camp improves most dogs’ social skills! More timid and quiet dogs often come out of their shell and develop a confidence in themselves their owners wouldn’t have thought possible--our day camp staff love to be part of these transformations.
Occasionally, however, a dog truly does not enjoy the company of other dogs and is not suited to day camp, so for the safety of all our canine and human friends we make sure each new dog would be the right match for camp. Beth, the owner of It's PAWSible!, is still the only person who approves dogs for camp.
We had our intake meeting and its our first day of camp! What should I expect my first drop-off to look like?
Before arriving: bring anything your pup likes to have in their crate (a blanket, crate-safe toy, etc.), their midday meal if they usually eat one, and treats if they have allergies and can’t eat milk bones. Its great if you can pack it all into a bag for our staff.
When you get here: head into the training center with your dog on-leash. If your dog wears a harness or gentle-leader be sure to bring them in on it. Our staff will be excited to greet you at the front of the building and lead your pup out to camp.   If you need to pay, have any questions or paperwork for us, anyone behind the desk will be happy to help you.
