Two Paws Up Happy Camp for Dogs is owned and operated by Jeanne Miller, with help from her assistants and canine children. In a previous life, Jeanne spent time as a teacher and business owner in the fast paced world of high-tech electronics. Today, she prefers to spend her days with dogs.
Two Paws Up is a fully socialized cage
free doggie day camp and overnight
boarding facility, licensed to operate in
San Diego County. We have an acre of
open space where your dog is free to
romp and explore with other friendly
dogs in a safe, supervised environment.
Staff is on the premises 24 hours a day,
7 days a week so your dog is never left
unattended. Guests are screened for
sociability before being accepted into our Camp for day camp or boarding. In addition, all dogs over the age of 6 months must be spayed or neutered. We avoid most conflicts between dogs by watching their behavior and anticipating problems rather than waiting for them to happen. We use time outs and positive feedback to help dogs learn to behave properly in a socialized environment. For the safety of our staff, our canine guests, and visitors to our facility, dogs who consistently misbehave or show aggression toward other dogs or people are confined and not allowed to return to our camp.
For your convenience, Two Paws Up has full service grooming available. If you would like to have your dog groomed during his or her stay, just let us know when your dog arrives. Unless you specifically request otherwise, dogs who spend more than 2 nights are bathed before going home.
We have several buildings for your dog to
An active lifestyle keeps your dog calm, physically fit and mentally alert. Healthy dogs live longer and require fewer trips to the vet. If your dog is overweight, the answer is not to feed less, but exercise more. If your dog is likely to suffer from hip, knee or elbow problems, the best medicine is consistent exercise to improve muscle tone. After a visit to Happy Camp, your dog will return home tired and content.
Dogs prefer to be in a pack. It is not in their nature to spend their days alone. They have a language all their own that helps them communicate and resolve differences. Dogs learn “doggie etiquette” through play and interaction with other dogs. Dogs who have not socialized with other dogs often cannot speak or understand this language. This can cause miscommunication, leading to conflicts and at times, aggression. How does your dog behave around other dogs? If you are not sure, then chances are your dog could use some socialization. How does your dog behave around strangers? A good way to accomplish this is in a structured, supervised environment such as Two Paws Up, which allows your dog to exercise, make friends and become socialized, all at the same time. At our camp, your dog will become more confident with both dogs and people.
If you are not convinced, try letting your dog visit for a day. Then brace yourself for the excitement the next time he visits our Happy Camp or sees our van.
come in out of the rain, or nap in the shade on a hot summer day. Outfitted with doggie beds and futons, even our most discriminating guest can find a comfortable place for a nap or a break between activities. There is a grass play yard and a bark yard for dogs that like to play ball or enjoy a game of chase. We have a sandbox for dogs who like to dig, play in the soft sand or just like a quiet corner to rest. For swimmer dogs, we have just added a 5 ft deep swimming pool. We also have wading pools for dogs looking to just cool off.
As much as possible, we provide socialized overnight sleeping accommodations in our cabana, our sun porch, and our bunkhouse, where we have a separate room for smaller, older or timid dogs. We also have five individual kennels for dogs that prefer to sleep alone or who are not quite ready for socialized sleeping. During the day, these kennels are used as time outs or, on occasion, private dining rooms.
Mealtimes are morning and evening. Puppies and high activity dogs receive a midday meal as well. Food is included in the price for overnight dogs. We feed Flint River Ranch premium dog food in a choice of 4 flavors. If you prefer, you can bring your dog’s regular food. Most medications and supplements are dispensed at no extra charge. We offer our guests healthy treats throughout the day to keep their energy up. Treats consist of various cookies from our bakery, as well as raw fruits and vegetables. With our own doggie bakery on the premises, there is often the opportunity to “taste test” a fresh batch of treats. If your dog has allergies or food sensitivities, or if there are foods you would prefer your dog not eat, please let us know.
After a day of play and exercise, when it is time to go to bed, most of our guests are more than ready to go to sleep in a soft doggie bed or on a futon. Just before the lights go out, we start playing what we call “sleep music” to quiet everyone down and relax them into a gentle slumber. The music plays throughout the night to keep out any distracting noises and allows the dogs to sleep peacefully.
