Give Your Puppy a Strong Foundation for Life
Puppies play in a supervised group that has strong pack tendencies due to consistent attendance. Since the group has limited change to pack members, your puppy achieves a clear rank within a pack of furry “friends for life,” plus gains impeccable social and behavioral skills that will carry through to adulthood.
• Puppies must be at least 8 weeks old and no older than 12 months to participate
• Puppies between 8-weeks and 20-weeks of age that have not completed their vaccine series must have a veterinarian supplied health certificate to board.
• Puppies 20-weeks and older are required to have completed vaccine series, including: current Rabies*, Distemper and Bordetella vaccines and a clear fecal every six months.
*Rabies must be administered in accordance with state law.
Puppy Play Group is held every Tuesday and Thursday, from 10am to 2pm.
A counselor will be in direct supervision of the puppies at all times.
Counselors are there to encourage play with puppies.
Counselors maintain an alpha position at all times to ensure consistent control of the puppy pack.

Upon arrival, you and your puppy are greeted by staff. We’re currently offering curbside pickup and drop-off. If you’re both new to camp, you’ll be interviewed first to make sure your puppy is a good fit for us (and vice versa).
Your puppy heads in with other campers and counselors to our indoor/outdoor puppy play areas for group activity. If it’s a holiday, there may even be a party (we’ll find any excuse).
After all that exercise, it’s time to eat if your puppy is a mid-day snacker. We serve premium kibble, or you’re also welcome to bring your puppy’s favorite food from home.
Most of our locations offer petcams for our pet parents. Hop on any time and see what your new best friend is up to (other than missing you, obviously).
After lunch, the puppies can relax, take a snooze, or play some more! Our Camp rooms have plenty of space for those who want some rest & relaxation.
In the afternoons, the puppies get busy with more activity—playing fetch, running around or lounging with a belly rub.
We want your puppy to love their days at Best Friends, so we’re big on customization. You can make sure your puppy has a bath, extra cuddle time or even an ice cream with our extensive add-ons menu.
All fun days must come to an end. When you come to get your puppy, we’ll fill you in on their day — how they ate, played and slept. We’ll also let you know about any upcoming events.
They are always friendly and very helpful. They seem to genuinely care about the boarders!Jan Muhlbaum
