Day camp – smart, social, just-for-the-day fun!

What is Day Camp?

A supervised environment where non-aggressive dogs can interact, play and learn. We alternate group play sessions with independent enrichment options. Quiet rest periods are mandatory between activities.

Male dogs must be neutered and female dog’s cannot be in heat.
Shy or dog aggressive dogs are welcome too! We cater to dogs uncomfortable around dogs by offering human contact, solo activities and enrichment games.

We feed premium Fromm Chicken and Rice food, but are happy to feed your dog’s normal brand of food. If you feed a “supermarket” brand food, we encourage you to bring your dog’s normal food to reduce the chance of digestive upset.

Required Vaccinations: Rabies, Distemper Combo, Canine Cough and a flea and tick preventative.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q) When can I drop off and pick up my dog for Day Camp?
A) Drop off is between 7:00 – 9:00 am and pickup is between 4:30 – 6:30 pm. There is no DayCamp on Wednesday, Saturday or Sunday.

Q) Do you allow exceptions to your hours?
A) All drop off and pickups must be during our regular hours. This allows us time to train, exercise and work with the dogs without interruption.

Q) What happens if I can’t make it back in time to make your pickup times?
A) If you’re unable to make our PM pickup hours then your dog will be kept for overnight boarding and charged the current nightly boarding rate.

Q) What vaccinations do you require?
A) We require: Rabies, DHLPP (or a variation of the Distemper complex) and Bordetella. Bordetella is the Canine Cough vaccine and not routinely given with your dog’s regular vaccinations. Please double check with your vet whether your dog has this vaccine. If your dog doesn’t have all three vaccinations, we will not accept them for Day Camp. NO EXCEPTIONS!

Q) What if it rains or snows?
A) Daycamp isn’t held if heavy rain is expected, Day boarding is available if needed. Daycamp is held if it’s lightly snowing, but we cancel if dangerous conditions are predicted. We will notify enrolled clients the night prior if there is a cancellation or rain change.

Q) Will my dog be fed while he is there? Can I bring my own food?
A) Dogs are fed Fromm Adult dry food at lunch time. We will happily feed your own food if you prefer. Please package only enough for one meal. We will not accept large bags or large storage containers of food for Day Camp. If your food requires refrigeration, there is a small fee charged.

Q) Are dogs allowed to play together in a group?
A) Yes, after an introduction and assessment. Please let us know ahead of time if your dog has a history of aggression or fence climbing.

Q) How long have you been in business?
A) Ebony Kennel was opened in 1985 and White Mountain K9 Academy was started in 1993, re-branded as White Mountain College for Pets in 2009 to better represent our extensive training offerings. Both businesses are highly respected and veterinarian recommended.

Q) My dog is older, can he still come?
A) Yes! We cater to older and nervous dogs. Older dogs will be allowed a relaxed visit on one of our comfortable Kuranda beds. Slow and gentle walks and story time are a few options popular with our elderly clientele.

Visiting & Tours

We maintain a 20 foot buffer between our kennels and customer contact. From our parking area the outdoor kennels are visible and we are happy to explain the workings and accommodations to you.

It is our pledge that each animal we take in will have the most relaxed, stress free, and enjoyable experience we can provide. By frequently allowing customers close contact with the animals in our care, we would impose territorial stress and unnecessary excitement upon them.

Depending on the current occupancy of the kennel at the time of your visit, an up close tour of the animal areas may not be possible.
We do welcome you to visit our property anytime during open hours to speak with the staff and observe our operation.
