Vaccination Requirements At Camp

medicine, pet, animals, health care and people concept - happy v

For the safety of your dog and all of the other dogs at Camp, we require all of our Campers to be up-to-date on three vaccinationss at all times. These vaccines are:

  • Bordetella
  • Distemper
  • Rabies

Viruses can easily be transmitted through interactions with an infected dog. At Camp, we require a copy of every dog’s vaccination history from their vet on the day of their Interview. We also require all of our Campers be updated regularly and again provide us with vaccination updates.

We are always happy to answer any questions you may have about our vaccination requirements! Don’t forget to ask your vet about the vaccinations they are providing your dog as well!

Meet Camp Counselor Addie!

Addie Wilson 2Addie joined our Pack in March of 2017! She is an animal lover and was excited for the opportunity to work with dogs.

Addie’s favorite part of her job is being in the play yards – simply being around dogs makes Addie happy! All of the personalities of the pups put a smile on her face every day she is at Camp.

At home, Addie has two Beagle mixes, Peevie and Hollie! Peevie is a very laid back six-year-old who enjoys barking at passersby. Hollie is five-years old and very energetic!

When Addie is not at Camp, she can be found playing sand volleyball, hanging out in her hammock, and playing tennis!
