Drop Off & Pick Up Times I Dogs at Camp Ottawa
Drop-Off and Pick-Up Times

We only have 2 drop off and 2 pick up times, and they are short. We do this because we have a very specific way of introducing new dogs into camp which requires waiting until all new dogs have arrived.  Also, as the dogs are free all day, we must have them in a controlled area when dogs are coming/going.

We are often asked why we don’t have an end of day or evening drop off time. The reason is that we know from experience, that dogs really need the day at camp to settle in, and to tire out. That way they are at ease when it comes to bed time, and will have a good night’s sleep.

Drop-off and pick-up times are as follows:

Drop off:
7:45am – 8:15am
11:15am – 11:45am

Pick up:
11:15am – 11:45am
5:15pm – 5:45pm

If you arrive a few minutes early for check in/out:

Please wait in your vehicle until the correct time. If you are late for a morning pick up or drop off – we may ask that you return during the next time ʻslot.ʼ If you cannot pick up by 6 pm, please contact us by phone ahead of time, and we will arrange for pick up on the following day.

Note: If you have extenuating circumstances and need to come outside of the above times, this must be pre-arranged, and is not available outside the hours of 7:30 am – 6:15 pm. In that event, there may be an extra fee.  Please try to do your best to come during our regular times – its best for your dog.

Why are we so strict with our schedule?

Dogs at Camp provides a unique environment, within which dogs have the opportunity to exercise, socialize, and of course – play! We work VERY hard to ensure the continued safety of this environment. In order to do so, our camp days are structured carefully, and in advance. This means that we know exactly when dogs are arriving, and departing. Having clients arrive unexpectedly is tricky for us, and we ask for your cooperation by ensuring that you adhere to the times above.
