Doggie Day Camp | San Jose Pet Sitting, Pet Medical Assistance and Dog Walking

About Doggie Day Camp

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). An exception to the “on-leash” rule can be made during trips that involve swimming, beaches that have an “off-leash” policy, or open reserves that grant permission to have dogs unleashed.

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. Our Doggie Day Camp operates Monday through Friday. 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. If you would like to discuss other options for pick-up and drop-offs, simply contact us via email or phone at (408)791-4405.

During Doggie Day Camp, your pups will have the opportunity to ride in the Wagtopia School Bus. Our 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 safety. 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 water, fresh bedding, as well as extra storage for dog lunches and other items.
