What do Puppy Parents need to know?
While we do not allow puppy parents to attend, you will receive photos, videos and a daily report card during/after your pup's camp session. We do clean urine and stool immediately during your puppy's playtime. Puppy pads may be provided during indoor play. Please note that while frequent potty breaks may need to occur, potty training is not the main focus of Puppy Camp.
