  • Parking

    • Please park along our property whenever possible to avoid disturbing neighbors. You may use our driveway or park temporarily in front of the driveway if no other spots are accessible. 

  • Arrival 

    • Please send a text on your way over to give us time to secure all dogs safely for your arrival. Camp activities are ongoing but are halted for pickups & drop offs so dogs can be secured for everyone’s safety.

  • Entering

    • Please bring your pets to the GATE ENTRANCE at the top of the driveway unless otherwise requested so we can bring them in without crowding & so they can do their business. DO NOT ENTER WITHOUT PERMISSION we may have dogs in the yard that must be secured before opening any gates. You may ring the doorbell on the gate.

  • Exiting & Goodbyes 

    • Please do your best to make exits when leaving pets brief & uneventful. This will help your pet acclimate easier & prevent them from patrolling the gate for your return.
