It’s time to bring your dog to Barkside Lodge for a day of running, jumping, and
playing with friends! We have
indoor and outdoor play areas, special rubber
matting on the floor to protect knees and joints, playground equipment
designed especially for dogs, lots of toys to play with, and experienced
staff who love to keep the dogs entertained. When the weather permits, we have shallow
doggie pools for the dogs to cool off and splash in. Our daycamp
allows dogs to burn off energy in a fun and safe environment. You can focus on work, while your dog
meets and greets new and old friends and enjoys simply being a dog. Some features that make our daycamp right for your dog are:
¨ LOTS OF PLAY TIME. Our small dog
camp is up front near the reception area where the dogs are out with the
staff the entire day! For larger dogs, our separate camp areas provide 3 -
5 hours of playtime each day, with a noon-time break that gives them time
to reenergize for the afternoon play session and reduces crankiness that
often comes with overstimulation.
¨ QUALIFIED STAFF. Only well-trained staff work in our daycamp program.
Jason Goins, our Manager/Facility Director oversees daily
operations. He has over 8 years experience in kennel and daycamp
operations. He has completed Pet
Care Services Association’s Advanced Pet Care Training Program and has
attended seminars on pack behavior, dog socialization, and operating a
safe dog daycamp. Jason works with each camp employee
through in-house training and external educational courses to ensure a
safe and a fun daycamp experience for your dog.
¨ PROPER PARTICIPANT SCREENING. All
dogs must pass a temperament screening before being admitted into our
program. Participants must also be
current on all vaccinations (call for requirements). To ensure that all dogs have a fun and
safe experience, we reserve the right to deny participation in our
program to any dog we do not feel is appropriate for group play.
¨ EARLY DROP-OFF. We know that many parents of our daycamp guests have to be at work early. We allow guests to arrive as early as
7:00 a.m., provided the early drop off is arranged in advance.
¨ DISCOUNTS FOR FREQUENT GUESTS. We love our frequent daycampers and to prove it we offer discounts to camp
parents who purchase multiple camp visits. Our current pricing is:
Small dog camp: $16 per day (can do 1/2 days)
