We are staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with skilled and dedicated staff. We partner with local veterinarians that can provide medical services should your pet experience a medical condition that would require veterinary care or supervision.
We do accept dogs that are dog aggressive for private boarding without Day Camp. Dog aggressive dogs will not be allowed in our Day Camp for the safety of other dogs. We DO NOT accept human aggressive dogs for the safety of our staff.
Yes. All breeds of dogs are welcome as long as they pass our behavior and temperament evaluation and have been accepted into Day Camp. We do not discriminate against dogs based on size or breed. We do not typically accept dogs that are over 13 years of age without management approval first.
All dogs going to our Day Camp that are 10 months or older are required to be spayed or neutered. For overnight pet guests that cannot go to Day Camp, we can offer private boarding at an additional charge that includes three one-on-one play sessions.
Yes. We accept pets that are up to 13 years of age. If your pet is older than 13 or requires special assistance, please call our office so we can discuss the additional accommodations your pet would need to see if we can accommodate.
In the event of a serious illness or injury we will always act in the best interest of your dog. We partner with local veterinarians that can provide medical services for pets in our care should the need arise.
Your pet can be exposed to diseases regardless of where they are, whether at home, at a dog park, taking a walk in your neighborhood, or staying at our facility. We want to help minimize that risk as much as possible by maintaining extremely high sanitation standards, requiring all pets in our facility to be properly vaccinated and contagious-illness free. Our goal is to offer a safe and clean facility for every pet in our care.
We strive to provide a safe and fun environment for all the dogs in our Day Camp. Our highly skilled staff closely monitor the dogs for safe play and wellbeing. When dogs play, they lead with their mouths and it is possible for dogs to get minor scratches and scrapes. It is similar to kids on a playground that can get minor scrapes during typical play. We do have a rigorous screening process and highly trained staff in the effort to avoid serious injury as much as possible.
Included in your pet’s boarding stay is premium orthopedic bedding, house cuisine diet, half-day of Day Camp and a bath on their last day. Their time with us also includes webcam access and daily report cards. Owners can add additional services for their pet (such as full day Day Camp, personal cuddle time or treats) for an additional fee.
We have everything your dog will need during their stay. We offer house cuisine and daily cleaning service at no additional cost. If your pet requires medications or a home diet, we can provide that service at an additional cost. Please make sure you provide an adequate supply of medications and home diet for your pet’s stay.
Yes. All overnight reservations will require a 50% deposit of the reservation total fee to book the reservation. Reservations must be canceled at least three (3) days prior to arrival date. Failure to cancel within three (3) days’ notice prior to arrival date (including a “no-show”), will result in forfeiture of the entire deposit. Credit card payments can be provided over the phone or in person.
Play and have fun with their friends! Your pet will have access to both our Indoor and Outdoor Day Camp experiences, all while being safely monitored by our trained staff. Whether they want to play in our interactive water features or relax under our shaded beds and canopies, we offer them an experience like no other.
To ensure the safety of every pet, every dog admitted to our Day Camp is required to undergo a behavior and temperament evaluation before being accepted. All dogs over 10 months of age must be spayed or neutered and have current vaccinations for Distemper (DHPP), Bordetella, and Rabies. They should also have had a negative fecal test for Giardia within the last calendar year. Due to the CIV/Influenza Vaccine shortage, we are currently only recommending this vaccine. Additionally, we require dogs to be free from external parasites (such as fleas and ticks) and to not have been exposed to any transmissible illness in the 30 days prior to attending Day Camp.
To ensure the safety of pets and staff, we require all dogs to undergo a behavior and temperament evaluation before being accepted into Day Camp. All Day Camp evaluations are scheduled appointments with one of our Day Camp staff members, ensuring there is adequate time for the evaluation process, which typically takes about 1-4 hours depending on the dog. Clients will need to fill out the Day Camp Evaluation Form prior to the scheduled appointment time. Our highly trained Day Camp staff will get to know your dog by monitoring safe play between the dogs in Day Camp and the Day Camp staff. If your pet is approved for Day Camp after the evaluation, they can come and play any day. Dogs that are not approved for Day Camp will need to be promptly picked up.
Yes. We have both a separate Indoor and Outdoor Day Camp dedicated specifically to our small dogs or large dogs, providing plenty of room to play and lounge. We have taken great care to design both our small dog and large dog Day Camps to maximize their fun experience while prioritizing their safety.
It will depend on your dog and their temperament as each dog is different. We do not typically accept dogs that are older than 13 years of age without management approval first. Some older dogs enjoy romping with the younger dogs while others prefer to watch the play. We have plenty of areas for each dog to find just the right group of dogs to play with or lounging spots.
If it is your dog’s first time you will need to schedule a Day Camp Evaluation first to be accepted into Day Camp. For both Full and Half-Day Camp we do require reservations to ensure we are properly staffed for safe play. If you are one of our Annual Smart Parke Membership holders, no reservations are required.
It is not uncommon for your pet to be tired after a fun day playing and exercising with their friends. They had the opportunity to use their energy in a happy, safe, and fun way. While we offer plenty of fresh water in both our Day Camps, dogs often spend so much time playing that they forget to stop and take a drink.
Our comprehensive training program encompasses a wide range of commands, including ‘Heel’, ‘Sit’, ‘Down’, ‘Stay’, ‘Place’, ‘No/Okay’, ‘Come’, ‘Quiet’, and more. These instructions are designed to help your dog make significant progress before concluding their training with us.
The initial 30 to 45 minutes will be dedicated to the main subject, while the latter portion of the class will concentrate on addressing particular challenges outlined in the following section on Problem Solving.
