Why should I enroll my dog in Doggie DayCamp?

Because its FUN! Dogs are like people - both need exercise and socialization to thrive and Doggy Daycamp provides an outlet for both.

And since we pickup and dropoff, Doggie Daycamp is the ideal choice for working parents. No need to make time for an extra stop in the morning and don't worry about rushing home to pick up your dog, they'll already be home and exhausted!

What is the schedule?

We pickup and dropoff the dogs Mon - Fri. Pickup begins at 9am and the last camper is dropped off by 4pm. Your pickup/dropoff time will vary depending upon where you live on the route.

All campers are required to be on a weekly schedule of at least two days per week. This encourages bonding within the group, helps us plan our pickup route efficiently and maximizes playtime!

Who can enroll?

Assuming space is available, Doggie Daycamp is open to dogs at least ten months old (under 10 months considered case-by-case) with good health and temperament, fully vaccinated and spayed/neutered. For more information about eligibility click here.

What do the dogs do at Doggie Daycamp?

Most of the dogs like to play with each other. Over the past 13 years we've always been amazed at how they seem to pair up on their own and find their favorite playmates.

What areas do you service?

Our pickup and dropoff service is available to Long Beach and Seal Beach residents only.

Where is Doggie Daycamp located?

Doggie Daycamp is part of the Seal Beach LaunderPet store located at 318 Main Street in Seal Beach, CA.

Is Doggie Daycamp safe for my dog?

Yes. Doggie Daycamp is enclosed and private. Just like your dog, all of the others have successfully completed a health and behavioral assessment and meet our eligibility standards. Fresh water is always available and there is a strict 'no-food' policy.

Our Daycamp Coordinators know even the best dogs need guidance, supervision and lots of individual attention. Which is why we limit the enrollment at Doggie Daycamp and maintain a very low human-to-canine ratio.

What other services are available?

Full-service grooming is available through our good friends, the experts at Seal Beach LaunderPet. At their four locations throughout the Long Beach area, LaunderPet is THE gold standard in pet grooming quality and value.

FREE home delivery of pet food and supplies is also available: let us know what you need that morning and it'll be waiting for your that evening*. Sign up for regular food delivery and never run out again!

*available only to clients enrolled in Doggie Daycamp. Client pays for the actual cost of items. Actual delivery date may vary depending on item availability.

What happens when it rains?

Fortunately we live in Southern California and not Seattle so this isn't a frequent concern. When we first meet with you we'll establish a 'rainy day' protocol. This could include postponing or rescheduling our daycamp session, going on a shorter 'potty' walk that day and enjoying a longer day when the sunshine returns.

What if my dog doesn't like other dogs?

That's OK! We are always available to provide one-on-one dog walking or behavioral training.
