What is PAWSible! Day Camp?
This is a great place that you can bring your dog (young or old) where they will receive play time, socialization, love and attention. Just drop your dog off in the morning with our caring staff and leave for work or your busy day knowing that your pup will be well cared for all day long. Come back by 5:45 pm, pick up your dog and enjoy a quiet evening with him/her. (Half days are also available).
Who brings their dogs 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". Here's why clients like to bring their dogs to Day Camp.
What are the benefits of Day Camp?
One of our philosophies is: "A Tired Dog is a Good Dog". Many people don't realize how much exercise and stimulation a dog really needs. Especially the sporting breeds like Golden Retrievers, Labradors and Springer Spaniels, but all dogs, need much more stimulation than they get in a normal day. A young puppy needs many bathroom breaks and lots of play, the challenging adolescents need structure and lots of physical stimulation, the older dogs need more attention and care.
At It's PAWSible! Day Camp dogs get to play with their own kind almost all day long and stay socialized to other dogs. This allows them the opportunity to utilize their natural instincts which they rarely get to use anymore. They also get lots of human attention from our staff. By the end of the day they are ready for a quiet evening at home.
Are there any dogs that do not do well at Day Camp?
We are sure that all dogs, especially puppies, improve their social skills from attending camp. Even timid, quiet dogs benefit from spending the day here and often they come right out of their shell.
There are some dogs, though, that really do not like other dogs. These dogs would not do well in this kind of atmosphere, and for the safety of our clients' dogs, we carefully screen all dogs before they can come to day camp.
What do we need to do before we bring our dog to It's PAWSible! Day Camp?
As we stated earlier, we need to evaluate your dog's social skills before his or her first day of camp. This will take about 30 minutes at which time you will get a chance to meet us, see our beautiful facility and fill out the needed paperwork. We will also test your dog's social skills to be sure he or she would do well in the atmosphere of day camp. There is a $20.00 charge for this appointment.
We also need you to show proof that your dogs shots are up to date and we will have you take a fecal sample to your veterinarian's office for examination. If your dog is free of parasites, he can join camp the next day it is offered. If your dog has parasites, he or she must be treated and re-tested in 2 weeks.
