Day Camp FAQ's

What do I need to bring my dog?

• Verification from your veterinarian that vaccinations for rabies, distemper and bordetella are up to date.
• A completed pet services agreement.
• Group play dogs must be spayed or neutered if over 7 months old.

When can I drop-off or pick-up?

There are no limitations on drop-off or pick-up within the business hours. If you want your pup to go out the same time as the others, it is advisable to drop off before 8:30 am and 2:00 pm. When you drop off, we’ll ask a few questions about what you’d like your dog to do that day. You may want to add on a bath, busy bone or a swim.

What is the group play like?

We maintain a low dog-to-staff ratio and separate into groups by size and temperament. At Wagsworth Manor, we use expert judgment and an abundance of caution when accepting dogs into day camp.

What if my dog isn’t good with other dogs?

One of the things that makes us unique is our 20 grassy individual play yards on our six acres. We can offer your pup time on his own to explore and get some fresh air!

My dog is shy. Should I bring her for day camp?

By all means! Whether your pet is shy, active or outgoing, they all have a place in the pack. Some dogs may prefer to get attention from the day camp monitor, while more active dogs usually gravitate toward each other. They will still find it to be an engaging environment! And as time progresses, he/she will become more socialized which makes easier boarding while your away.

What is the play yard like?

Our play fields are Astroturf specially designed for canine use with an antimicrobial agent. This helps maintain a clean and healthy environment as your pet romps around with the others. We provide shade and wading pools for those who like to cool off with a dip. And dogs don’t get dirty or muddy!

Can my dog be fed or administered medication during the day?

Food and biscuits are inclusive in the day camp. We serve a tasty, highly nutritious premium brand food. You may choose to add on our Busy Bone to make nap time especially enjoyable. Oral medications may also be administered at this time if applicable. We serve lunch and treats at an appropriate time to allow for digestion before going out for more fun!

What about extreme weather conditions?

When conditions outside do not permit - due to inclement weather, temperature extremes, etc. - we move our play groups inside for supervised play.

How do I know how my dog’s day was?

Please request a report card at time of drop-off, so we can let you know how your dog did.
