Camp Cookstown sounds awesome! What should I tell my parents?
You must be at least 3 months old, spayed or neutered (if over 9 months). You must also be in good health, flea/tick-free, friendly to all dogs, and generally love to play.
What time can I be dropped off and picked up?
Drop-off times are between 7:30am - 8:30am or 11:00am - 12:00pm.
Pick-up times are between 11:00am - 12:00pm or 5:00pm - 6:00pm.
What if my mommy and daddy drop me off or pick me up outside of your regular times?
Absolutely no problem at all! Although we try to stick to our times as best we can, we completely understand that our pickup and dropoff times don't work for everyone. That is why your parents can drop you off and pick you up at anytime between 7am and 7pm. All we ask is that your Mommy and Daddy call or email to let us know. Please remember that we have Meet & Greets from 1:15pm - 2:00pm, so if you're going to be dropped off or picked up between that time, your parents may have to wait a bit.
What if my mommy and daddy need to cancel my booking?
Are you ready for this? Your parents can cancel your booking anytime at absolutely NO charge. Yes, you read that right! Nadda! Nothin'!
What will I do while I'm at camp?
While at camp, you will have an all-access pass. Whether you enjoy playing with your friends in our one-acre fenced-in area, or just lounging around in our beautiful, brand new country barn - you're free to do as you like while being supervised by our Camp Counselors. You can even cool off in one of our puppy pools! 100% satisfaction guaranteed!
How many friends will I make?
That's up to you! We accept a maximum of 40 dogs at a time so if you're lucky, you might make 39 new friends!
Can I get a pedicure at Camp?
No, you're a dog! We will cut your nails if needed.
Do you offer Spa Packages?
If your parents want you looking your absolute best when you return home, we offer a Full Grooming Experience! Click here for more details.
Why do I need a Meet & Greet before I can come to Camp?
Prior to each dog being accepted as a camper, we arrange a 45 minute Meet & Greet with you and your parents to assess your suitability for the camp environment. This process consists of having all of our campers wait in the barn while we bring you and your parents into our one-acre fenced-in field where we will introduce you to the rest of our pack, one dog at a time. Once we are confident with your reaction to our first dog, we will then introduce you to a second dog. This process continues until you have met the entire pack.
After you have been introduced to all of our campers, we will bring your Mommy and Daddy into our barn to give them the grand tour! Our staff will remain outside with you to ensure that you're comfortable without your parents around, and that you interact well with the other dogs. If all goes well in the interview process, you're welcome to camp anytime!
Can my Mommy and Daddy check in on me?
Absolutely! They can email us or call our office anytime.
What will I eat while I'm at Camp?
We feed you exactly what you eat at home. Just make sure your Mommy and Daddy pack enough food for your entire stay.
What if my friends eat my food?
That won't happen because we feed each of you one at a time.
Can I take a nap at Camp?
Yes, you're welcome to snooze wherever and whenever you'd like.
Will I always be supervised?
Yes, you will be with our staff from the moment you wake up to the moment you go to bed.
What if I get sick or injured?
Not to worry! Our Camp Counselors are all certified in Pet First Aid and Pet CPR and will take excellent care of you. We also have a 24-hour emergency veterinary clinic just minutes away.
If I need medication who will give it to me?
We administer medication that has been provided by your parents in pill, powder, or liquid form, for no additional fee. All medications must be in the original container.
How far in advance should I make a reservation?
It is best to make a reservation well in advance of your stay. Our camp fills up quite quickly so early booking is highly recommended!
I'm a Senior. What if I can't keep up with my younger roommates?
Our Camp Counselors keep a careful watch to ensure the well being and safety of all the Campers.
What if I'm being bullied by another camper?
We have a zero tolerance policy and our Camp Counselors are well trained in the prevention of dog fights. Remember that all dogs are carefully assessed prior to admission to camp.
Can I bring my iPad?
Can I bring my blanky?
Yes, but don't expect to take it home in one piece!
