What to Bring for Your Dog’s Stay

  • Camp offers several varieties of "Taste of the Wild" that is available to your dog by request.
  • We can administer simple medications while your pet is staying with us. Please bring in the prescribed medication, clearly labeled with your dog's name and written instructions. Camp is unable to administer injectable medications and cannot accept any dog undergoing treatment for a transmittable disease.

Your Dog's Health

At Camp K-9 of Marin, dogs must be in good health while attending. Our goal every day is to create a fun, safe and healthy environment for your Camper and their friends. We are especially careful around anything that would be considered contagious. For example, if your dog has an Upper Respiratory Infection, Canine Cough, Giardia, Canine Warts, Ring Worm, or Conjunctivitis; we will insist that you find alternative care for your dog. This is for everyone’s health and safety. We are not dissimilar to a child’s preschool environment in this regard! We appreciate your understanding.

Camp K-9 of Marin requires that all Campers be up-to-date on their vaccinations.

This includes:
