Why DayCamp?

Paws and Claws offers DayCamp because pet owners have busy lives. We are here for you and your pet as an alternative to leaving your best friend home alone during a long and busy day.  DayCamp offers a fun filled alternative that allows your dog to be active, get exercise, and socialize with other pets and people. Your pet will love it and come home happy and fulfilled, ready to spend a quiet evening at home relaxing and unwinding with you at the end of a busy day.

DayCamp can assist owners with many pet issues including puppy training, separation anxiety, destructive behaviors, boredom, socialization or lack of exercise. We can also accommodate geriatric pets and post-surgery monitoring.

What is DayCamp?

The BEST day a dog can have!  The Resort is divided into several separate play areas located indoors and outdoors. Dogs are divided into play groups by size and/or play style. Each play area has a large assortment of beds, toys, balls and chew items. All dogs are taken outside upon their arrival and at regular intervals throughout the day. Puppies and elderly pets are walked more frequently.

We offer an exciting outdoor play experience with our ATTACHED, secure play areas.  This insures your pet is safe while romping on the year round, green turf (NO dirt, mud or dead grass here!), running and playing or rolling in the snow!  Weather permitting, we allow the dogs “at-will” access to outdoor play areas so they can choose where they want to play. The entire outdoor play area is disinfected regularly for your pets’ health and safety.

DayCamp Counselors encourage participation in appropriate, social play, ball chasing, retrieving games, cuddling and belly rubs.  The resort also offers stimulating Camp Activities such as water fun, chasing bubbles and arts and crafts paw-jects!  Enrichment games (manners, trick, focus, etc.) and Refinement School (obedience or behavior modification) are also available during your pets stay.

Doggie Cams

DON’T WONDER, Watch!  Pet owners are encouraged to log on to watch their pet’s fun filled day via our Live Doggie Cams (powered by On-Line Doggy).  Have peace of mind by watching what your pet is up to, how much fun they are having and why they are so tuckered out at the end of the day.  Doggie Cams can be accessed by your computer or mobile device for observing inside and outside play (need not be a client to watch!).
