Day Camp is a cage-free service designed for social dogs to play and have fun. Day Camp provides an outlet to expend excess energy, socialize and remain active. At Day Camp, there is never a dull moment and our schedule is packed with fun and activities.
Our trained staff members get to know each guest individually in order to keep them safe and engaged with their peers, using time-outs and treats when needed. Add some Spa treatments and make your best friends day extra special. Our staff provides tender, loving care while keeping the peace.
Guests play in a cage-free environment where they can enjoy the freedom to stretch their legs. At Paws Chateau™ dogs socialize and unwind in a controlled and fully supervised, safe setting. This exercise helps curb behavior problems, separation anxiety, and boredom issues. All activities are monitored with safety in mind by our expert staff.
Due to size and temperament restrictions, Paws Chateau offers both Big Dog Day Camp and Small Dog Day Camp. Dogs less than 15 lbs. may participate in Big Dog Day Camp if a waiver is signed.

Safety is our # 1 priority; therefore Day Camp is not for every dog. Day Camp is not a place for aggressive and non-social dogs to learn how to become social. All dog owners must print, read, complete, sign and return our standard Day Camp Evaluation form prior to registering your dog for Day Camp.
Monday – Friday – 6:30am to 7:00pm
Saturday – 8:00am to 6:00pm
Sunday – 9:00am to 4:00pm
Dogs not picked up by closing time will be considered overnight guests and charged the standard boarding rate for that evening.
Day Camp fees are based on single day package or pre-paid pass packages. All packages expire within 3 months of purchase. All pass plan sales are final. Packages may not be sold or transferred to any pet outside Owner’s direct ownership.
Visit our Rates page for a list of services and fees.
Day Camp is limited in size; therefore clients are strongly encouraged to make reservations in advance to avoid disappointment. Priority goes to clients with standing reservations. Overnight guests wishing to attend Day Camp must be “accepted” prior to first day of stay. We request 24-hour notification for cancellations in order to properly staff a safe play environment.
Note: A complete temperament assessment is required prior to attending Day Camp.
Day Camp Alternative
Day Camp Alternative is designed for dogs that need on-site care and attention during business hours. Unlike Day Camp, Day Camp Alternative guests do not interact with other pets during the day – making it a great alternative for dogs that are shy or aggressive with others. A Day Camp Alternative stay is only $40.
Important Notes and Exclusions
Please Note: Paws Chateau reserves the right to refuse admittance to any guest for any reason, at any time, who lacks proof of vaccinations, displays signs of untreated or potentially contagious conditions, demonstrates aggressive behavior, or who fails our standard health and temperament policies.
Please Note: Safety is our primary goal, therefore, Day Camp is not for every dog. Day camp is a place for social dogs to come play and have fun. It is not a place for aggressive dogs to learn how to be social. Paws Chateau offers a Day Camp Alternative for dogs who are not social or who need special attention during the work day.
We regret that for insurance/safety precautions, we cannot admit the following breeds (or mixes) into Camp: Pit Bulls, Bull Mastiffs, Cane Corsos, Presa Canerios, American Staffordshire Terriers, Akitas, Chow Chows and Rottweilers. In addition, while not restricted, certain breeds (prey drive, herding, etc.) typically do not do well in the Day Camp setting such as: Boxers, Greyhounds and German Shepherds.
