Your dog can be dropped off between 7:30-9:30 a.m. and picked up between 4:00-6:00 p.m. (ask about other options if you need an earlier drop off or later pick up). Your dog’s day will consist of supervised play, jumping in and out of pools of water (during warm weather), or just running around with friends and playing with our staff and fun toys. Whether your dog is in the small dog area, the big dog area, or outside, your dog will always have access to water bowls and your dog will always be under the supervision of our dog professionals.
Our Daycare Facility offers 2,500 square feet of indoor space. It is equipped with 3/4” RB Rubber Matting (also know as Tenderfoot flooring) for cushioning your dog’s playing. Using rubber flooring at Choo Choo Dog Camp gives added traction, joint protection and shock absorption to the dogs while running and jumping. RB Rubber Matting is the recommended flooring by the San Francisco Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SFSPCA) for use in the dog day care environment and obedience training rooms.
The 5,000 square feet of outdoor space is equipped with an 8” layer of pea gravel and plenty of shaded areas. Each dog gets a weekly report card.
Your dog’s first day:
On your dog’s first day he will go through an introduction process where he will slowly meet other dogs so we can see how he responds to and interacts with the different personalities and activity levels of the dogs in the playgroup.
Your dog needs to be dropped off first thing in the morning as their day starts at 7:30 a.m. In the afternoon, we ask that new dogs are the first ones to be picked up (to reduce the stress of seeing other dogs leave first), between 4:00 -4:30 p.m.
Also, if a dog suffers from such severe separation anxiety that he won’t relax despite all efforts to get him to calm down, we will let you know that this environment might not be the best for him and we will be happy to recommend a pet sitter. We want the dogs at Choo Choo Dog Camp to be happy, and we will always let you know how your dog does during his visits.
