Boarding | Daycare Policies

We look forward to providing a safe and relaxing stay for your pet and you can help us to make your pets stay better by reviewing the following policies.

New Comers:Please know that we require a completed online application form to set up an appointment for a free 15 minute meet and greet to get to know our staff and to tour our enrichment center. If together we find that we are a good match, your dog will then transition into our 25.00 intro-daycare program were you will leave him with us for a few hours to allow more time to acclimate to our camp prior to being dropped off for a longer stay.

Dogs that display any of the following are not permitted to stay at Camp Miracle Paws and arrangements for an early pick-up will need to be made in the event that your dog exhibits any of the following:

  • aggression- with any humans or with other dogs
  • anxiety- cannot settle into a confined 5 x 5 kennel for rest and sleep- unlike a commercial setting, we must be respectful of our residential neighbors and on-going barking and whining is not permitted. We can set up an in-home training session with the dogs parents to help them help their dog learn how to relax
  • escape artists– please know that Camp Miracle Paws is located in a residential neighborhood and our fencing is only 4′ tall. Camp Miracle Paws is not a good fit for ANY dogs that choose to run away by escaping over or under any fencing
  • separation anxiety- Dogs with separation anxiety are more likely to try and make quick escapes and their anxiety will cause the rest of our guests to be uneasy, and will also disrupt our residential neighbors. Be sure to let your dog’s new care givers know that your dog needs a secured dog run. This can take some time and effort on your part, but we can provide in-home training classes to help you help your dog learn to relax
  • health conditions– we cannot accept dogs that are pregnant, in heat, has any contagious conditions including skin rashes, diarrhea, ticks and fleas. Letters of clearance from a licensed vet will be required for all dogs that have rashes, allergy like symptoms, appear to be sick, etc. Proof that your dog is not contagious will be required if we observe any conditions that your dog displays or arrangements for an early pick-up will be necessary or at your expense, we can transport your dog to a local veterinarian for medical assistance and boarding if needed
  • vaccinations- Dogs must be up to date with all of their vaccinations and proof from a licensed veterinarian will be required prior to your dogs arrival to our enrichment center
  • know your dog- you must have owned your dog for at least two weeks prior to completing this form that will allow you time to get to know your dog’s personality and their health, so that you can be forthcoming about the information about your dog
