“Dogs may not be our whole life but they make our lives whole”

– Roger Caras

This quote is a basic philosophy of Camp Zen. We provide a safe, fun environment where dogs can be dogs. We aim to help keep your dog happy, through exercise and socialization in a supervised environment.

We provide our clients with peace of mind. Your dog will not be left alone during the day. We offer a clean, safe and healthy environment for your dog to play in. Many of our clients report that they have seen an improvement in their dog's mood and behavior following a stay at our daycare. Put simply, Camp Zen Daycare is a place that owners can leave their pup during the day. Our team provides each dog with 100% supervised play in our climate-controlled playrooms. In addition to not being bored, lonely or destructive at home, dogs that attend daycare learn valuable socialization lessons that are hard to teach at home or in a training class.

What makes us different from the rest?

Having an extensive background in animal behavior coupled with managing a pack of our own dogs and raising puppies, does put us a step above the rest.

 

Safety is our primary concern. Exhaustion is not the answer to a happy dog. That is why our daycare offers a well structured environment, allowing for adequate rest as well as active play. happiness is all about balance and its very important for the emotional well-being of our pets to live in an over stimulated state.

We offer a home setting. Couches and beds are never off limits! We offer a menu of treats and snacks that are made with love by our own staff.

Green Pet Care!

We believe in taking care of our environment. This helps humans and pets alike. We constantly search and research products that will effectively benefit our daycare and our dogs. That means super careful selection of all cleaning, grooming and feeding supplies that touch our daycare. The pet industry is becoming more savvy about ‘keeping it simple’, organic and reducing our carbon footprint whenever possible.

Daycare Info

At CAMP ZEN Dog Daycare, the SAFETY of our guests comes first.

As such we cannot accept aggressive dogs, or dogs with an inability to interact socially with other canines. In order to insure the happiness and well-being of our guests, all dogs are required undergo a "Temperament Test" prior to being allowed to participate in daycare or boarding activities. This gives us the opportunity to ascertain the temperament and social skills of the dog, and to insure that the dog will enjoy participating in the services offered by CAMP ZEN Dog Daycare.

The CAMP ZEN Dog Daycare temperament test is designed to insure that we do not accept aggressive or anti-social dogs.

To begin the process of enrolling your furry child in services that require interaction with the pack, we first require that all new canine parents complete the Daycare information package and questionnaire. The questions in the package are designed to get us acquainted with your pet and help us interact with them safely while using key words that they are familiar with. You may download the forms from our site or we will gladly provide them to you when you tour our facility. Once you have completed the package and have a copy of your pet’s current vaccination, we will schedule a day to conduct your furry Child's interview.

The Temperament Evaluation will take between 2 and 4 hours to complete. The charge is a ½ DAY OF DAYCARE.($20 )

On your pets evaluation day we need you to arrive between 7-9 A.M. this gives your pet the opportunity to meet our regular pack members individually as they arrive for the day, insuring a smoother transition into the pack environment.

 

 

How the evaluation is conducted

Prior to conducting the temperament evaluation, we sit down with the pet parent and review the information presented on the application to include the dog’s history, previous owners, known issues, previous socialization and interactions with other dogs. We want to know as much as possible so we can make their transition into the pack as smooth and enjoyable as possible. This process generally takes 15 minutes, and once complete you may go about your daily activities while we conduct the evaluation with your dog at our facility.

 

There is no need for you to wait or be present while we conduct the temperament evaluation. Our experience has shown that we are able to gain a much more realistic and accurate assessment of the dog’s social skills when the parents are not present as they are not focused on impressing mom and dad, but on interacting with other dogs.

 

The temperament evaluation begins with each staff member becoming personally acquainted with your dog, in a controlled environment away from the main pack, after which we will slowly introduce one of our control dogs known for their friendly nature and well-rounded socialization skills. We will carefully monitor your dog for body language, posturing, and reactions during these critical first social interactions. Once the initial canine greeting is out of the way we will carefully introduce a toy into the situation to insure that there are no toy aggressive or possessive tendencies present, we will then give them both a treat in close proximity to check for food aggressiveness. We then observe for 15 minutes while the two of them interact, we will repeat this process 4 more times until we have a total of 5 control dogs and your pet interacting safely and socially. At which point we will introduce your kid to the pack and observe for another two hours.

 

At CAMP ZEN  Dog Daycare we are committed to the safety of every dog in our care.

Once a dog has successfully completed the evaluation, we contact the parent and inform them of the good news. In the event that we feel a dog may need more training to interact safely with the pack, we contact the parent and allow them to stay in one of our pet suites until mom or dad can pick them up. There is a non-refundable $20.00 fee for the initial interview, and temperament evaluation. The interview process is a very straight forward process designed to address the individual needs of your dog and determine their current level of socialization while insuring that everyone in our care, has a happy, safe and fun time.
