Doggie Day Camp Requirements

Vaccinations, day camp requirements & forms

The health and safety of pets is our priority. Knowing the dietary needs, exercise restrictions or required medications for our guests helps us provide the best experience.


Vaccinations must be administered at least 48 hours prior to arrival under the guidance of a licensed veterinarian. However, we prefer vaccinations be administered 10 days before check-in. Written proof is required. You must also show proof of meeting state and local pet boarding vaccination requirements. Please check with your local PetSmart to verify/confirm your local requirements.
