Each Camper is required to
- Pass a (free) socialization interview and spend at least one more 1/2 day of day camp (not free) before an overnight stay. These 2 days help dogs become more comfortable in camp We want every camper to enjoy their stay with us and these 2 days help them be at ease.
- Be spayed or neutered if over 7 months old.
- Be current on rabies, distemper and bordetella vaccinations. If the bordetella vaccination has never been given or has expired a waiting period is needed so dogs can build immunity before coming to Camp. The waiting periods are:
- One-week period after receiving the injectable or oral vaccination.
- 48-hours is required after receiving the intranasal vaccination.
- We recommend that campers get Bordetella boosters every 6 months . This gives campers an added immunity and has been shown to reduce symptom severity if exposed.
- We highly encourage the Canine Influenza vaccine. Canine Influenza is serious and can make dogs very ill. Please consult with your vet or visit the American Veterinary Medical Association CIV FAQ site.
- Campers coming to our Camp from over 50 miles away are required to have the Canine Influenza Vaccine.
- Be on a monthly flea and tick medication. Oral or topical types are preferred; flea/tick collars are not allowed at Camp because they cannot be removed quickly in case of emergency. If you use a flea/tick collar it will be kept with your dog's leash while the dog is at Camp.
- Must provide a copy of the actual rabies certificate.
- Must provide a copy of the PA dog's license for PA residents.
- New dogs coming to our Camp must be owned at least 30 days by the person bringing them to Camp. We want the best for each dog. Dogs must feel loved and settled into their new homes. Transitions are very disruptive for dogs and we don’t want Camp to be overwhelming.
- Come into camp wearing a Quick Release collar (pinch to open) and a name tag. We sell quick release collars and name tags at low prices for owner convenience.
- Dogs need to be dropped off at least 1 hour before camp closes. We want the pups to have time to play in order for them to have a good first night sleep.
- If arrangements are made for someone other than the Pet Owner for boarding pick up , payment in advance of boarding is required.
- Not come to Camp if coughing. We do all we can to prevent coughs and all other transmittable canine situations. If your pup is coughing, do not bring them into Camp for at least 14 days after the dog stops coughing. Dogs can shed viruses after symptoms end and we want to do all we can to prevent the spread and keep all of our Campers healthy. Thank you for your consideration in keeping sick pups home.
*Pennsylvania State Law requires that all dogs have a current license and rabies vaccination.
If your dog's license is expired, you may be fined by a state dog warden for failure to license your dog.
While the lack of a dog license will not prohibit you from attending day care or boarding your dog at this facility, please be aware that dog wardens routinely inspect boarding kennels in the state of Pennsylvania.
Note: If your dog is attending day care or boarded on a day in which a random inspection is conducted, this kennel is not responsible for any ensuing citation or fine imposed for failure to obtain a dog PA license as required by PA state law.
