Dogs attending our day camp get a total of 5 hours of play and relaxation in the sun each day. This is the optimal amount of play and exercise for dogs on a daily basis. Our large property on over 3/4 acre gives them the ability to run at a full pace while playing which is great for developing muscle and maintaining healthy weight. If your dog is older or is not a player, he will still have a great time relaxing on the pool deck or in the shade with our staff. We separate the day camp play groups by size and temperament. Add on a swim session and give them their ultimate day and watch them swim on our pet cams! All dogs must be fully vaccinated for rabies, bordetella and DHLPP to use our day camp service.
As we continue to set the leading standards in the pet care industry, we will be requiring the canine influenza vaccine for all dogs using day camp and hotel effective January 1st 2014. The vaccine not only protects your dog while staying with us, but everywhere else they go in this densely dog populated area. If you are a new customer and cannot get the vaccine in time for your first visit, you have a 30 day grace period to get it. As a courtesy we can also take your dog to a local veterinarian for the vaccine while they are staying with us. If your dog is exempt from the vaccine, we just need your vet to write that on their shot certificate. If you have any questions regarding this please let us know!All first time dogs must go through a temperament test/orientation day with us to participate in the general day camp play sessions. Dogs who have already visited our Hoboken location do not have to take the temperament test. They must demonstrate submissiveness and calm, balanced energy. The temperament test/orientation is included in a half price day of day camp. The test is important to ensure your dog gets along with other campers and our staff. If it’s determined your dog cannot go in the play groups, your dog will still have a blast with 1 on 1 playtime or swim session with a staff member! We have limited space available for dogs over 100 lbs. Please call us to discuss availability dates! For dog and staff safety, dogs over 100 lbs. cannot participate in the general day camp play sessions, but are more than welcome to 1 on 1 playtime and swim sessions. Dogs who are unneutered/unspayed over the age of 6 months cannot participate in the general day camp play sessions due to them approaching the age of reproduction. This is a standard policy in the pet care industry and we apologize for any inconvenience. They are more than welcome to come to the resort, but you must add on at least 1 private play or swim session if coming for day camp and at least 2 private sessions if staying overnight in the hotel. Your dog will have private use of our indoor or outdoor play areas during these sessions and will ensure your dog gets the proper amount of fresh air and exercise to give them a comfortable, fun stay!
