|As of August 1st, 2013 Pet Camp will no longer accept any new clients with
purebred Pitbulls, Bulldogs as well as some Bullybreed Mixes and
Staffordshire Terriers for Boarding and/or Daycare unless they go through
a screening process and display a low level of reactivity and are very friendly
with all dogs. This can be accomplished by simply enrolling in a day of
daycare during which we can observe the dog's behavior. This policy will not
affect our existing clients that own any of the above mentioned breeds or our
training programs, in which we welcome and encourage these dogs to
participate in. This was a difficult decision for us to make. Having an extensive
background in working with these breeds we feel that due to their often low
aggression threshold, high prey drive and unmatched physical power, these
particular dogs pose an increase in liability and risk factor to us and our
boarding clients. Thank you for your understanding.
