more than the average dog daycare
Typical dog daycares focus on quantity, some daycares can have up to 50+ dogs in one group with just one person. Most times these staff have minimum knowledge on dog behavior and safety precautions.
Our Sniffventure Day Camp only accepts up to 6 dogs a day to attend. This is to ensure each dog gets plenty of attention and the safety and security they need. Dogs are supervised by Certified Professional Dog Trainer and Certified Canine Enrichment Technician, Casey Hallenbeck.
Small class size, a safe environment, a staff of canine behavior experts plus a thoughtful curriculum is what sets our Day Camp program apart.
We provide your dogs with fun activities that engage both their bodies and minds. Dogs work on puzzles, games, and activities that build confidence, improve body awareness, teach problem solving and reinforce polite manners.
Dogs are encouraged to sniff, run, jump, socialize, work, and play in safe, fun, appropriate ways.
We practice calming exercises, teach dogs how to settle and lower arousal levels. We always reinforce polite manners including sitting, taking turns, waiting at gates, and more.
We love exposing the dogs in our care to as many new experiences, smells, tastes, sights, and textures as we can as these opportunities together provide a full spectrum of experiences that will build confidence, enhance their days, expand their minds and strengthen their bodies.
Supervised Dog-Dog Play
Reinforce polite social skills with short and supervised play sessions.
Personalized Enrichment Activities
Each dog is unique and has different needs. It is our job to learn what it is they need and do our best to provide it to them.
Sensory Engaging Activities
Dogs will get to hear new sounds, smell new scents, see new objects, feel new textures, and taste new treats.
Thoughtful physical exercise activities are provided to keep the dogs physically active and healthy. Mental exercise activities are also provided to keep their minds sharp.
One on One time with Staff
Private time with staff is an important part of your dog's day to make sure they get the attention they deserve.
Beneficial Breaks & Naps
Dogs are naturally crepuscular creatures meaning they are most active during dawn and dusk hours. Dogs need about 12-18hrs of sleep a day. We give them plenty of breaks during the day to promote self regulation and relaxation.
Reinforcement of potty training is very important, especially for younger dogs. This also gives them a change in scenery.
Reinforcement of Polite Manners
Learn to take turns, share, keep their paws on the floor, sit to ask for things, impulse control, and more are reinforced throughout the day. Ask about our Day Training Program for training new skills and cues.
