Set Your Pet FREE!

Dogs just love to play. They love playing with our staff.  But most of all, dogs love playing with other dogs.  However hard our staff tries, we cannot run as fast or play as hard as dogs love to do with other dogs.

So we have changed things for our boarding dogs in a big way.  Now, instead of being confined most of the day, your pet is free to have endless fun playing with other dogs at Camp Petropolis.


Frequently Asked Questions

Can All Dogs Go To Camp?

Well, almost.
There are rare exceptions.  Dogs can develop bad habits being excluded from dog to dog interaction too long. In addition, some dogs are inherently over aggressive.

Bad Habits
All is not lost if your dog has developed bad social habits.  More often than not, these pets respond well with adequate training and we are happy to refer you to our training department.

Overly Aggressive Dogs
Most dogs growl or may even nip out of fear.  These pets often do well once properly exposed to Camp Petropolis.  But on rare occasions dogs can have dominant aggressive personalities.  Although neutering may help, for the safety of our staff and guests we cannot allow these dogs to interact with others.  If the aggression is limited only to other dogs we may offer individual play sessions with our staff.
We do require all male dogs participating in Camp to be neutered. All female dogs participating in Camp must be spayed or not in heat.

How Long Do Dogs Play?

It is our goal to have your dog playing with others most of the day.  The amount of time your pet is in supervised group play will depend upon the following:

Your dog’s familiarity with group play.
Most dogs just dive into group play with excitement and enthusiasm.  But every dog is different.  Some pets must be slowly introduced into group play.  Our experts will carefully evaluate your pet and adjust the time your pet spends in group play to maximize your pet’s fun.

The Pet Community.
Groups of pets take on a life of their own.  Our expert staff will adjust the amount of play each pets get based upon the group’s activity level and the mix of individual personalities.

The energy level of your pet.
Dogs differ in how long they enjoy playing with other dogs.

Weather conditions.
Obviously a dog’s time in outdoor group play will be limited when dangerous weather conditions exist.  We do have our indoor play area for such conditions.

Number of pets staying at Petropolis.
We will log for you the times that your dog is in group play.  As a minimum we will work hard to see that your pet receives group play at least one hour in the morning and one hour in the afternoon.

Is Camp Petropolis Safe?

Our professional staff has learned from experience.  We have learned how best to introduce a new dog to their social group.  We have learned what to watch for when dogs interact and how best to supervise these pets. Most of all we have learned how happy pets can be when playing in a group.
The result is an overwhelming positive experience for our Camp guests.  But even in the best supervised environment dogs play hard.  Just like children, dogs will occasionally get minor cuts and scrapes from rough play.  Any dog can have a bad day and be a bit cranky.  Our experience has been that injuries are rare and typically minor.
