Wagtopia’s Doggie Day Camp was created for the dog that loves the outdoors. After being picked up in our Wagtopia School Bus, several friends, both two and four legged, will accompany your dog on a field trip to a dog friendly adventure destination. Our Doggie Day Camp adventures take place at Bay Area hiking trails, coastlines and beaches, as well as lakes and reservoirs.
The dogs remain on-leash during these trips and are handled at a comfortable ratio (varied based on the Handler’s capabilities) of typically 4 dogs to 1 handler. An exception to the “on-leash” rule can be made during trips that involve swimming.
Pick-Ups and Drop-Offs
Pick-ups and Drop-offs take place at your home or place of work and are included in the daily fee. Pick-ups are in the mornings from 8:00am to 10:00am while drops-offs are in the early evenings from 3:00pm to 5:00pm. If you or another member of the household will not be present during pick-up or drop-off, a home key may be left on file with Wagtopia allowing us to securely drop off your dog at home while you are away.
In order for a dog to attend Doggie Day Camp, they must meet ALL of the following requirements:
- Be current on their Rabies, Bordetella, and DHPP(Distemper/Hepatitis/Parvo/Parainfluenza) Vaccinations
- Be free of fleas, ticks, worms, and parasites, as well as be on a flea preventative (tick preventative recommended due to hiking)
- Be healthy and able to hike/walk for up to six miles
- Be dog and people friendly
- Attend at least one of Wagtopia’s 2 hour Adventure Dog Walks as an assessment and evaluation
- Electronically sign and submit all required paperwork
During Doggie Day Camp, your pups will have the opportunity to ride in the Wagtopia School Bus. This school bus is fully fabricated to ensure the highest level of canine safety during transportation. Weighing in at just over 10,000lbs, the bus contains many custom-made sitting areas for your canine companions built with highly durable and water resistant material allowing us to maintain the highest levels of sanitation and security. Dogs are surrounded by four walls as well and secured in by using a harness and seat belt (all harnesses will be provided by Wagtopia). The Doggie Day Camp Bus also carries pet and human first aid and emergency kits, 15 gallons of clean drinking water, fresh bedding, as well as extra storage for dog lunches and other items.
