We feed Flint River Ranch premium dog food in a choice of 4 flavors (Original Dog & Puppy, Lamb & Rice, Fish & Sweet Potato or Senior/Lite) If you prefer, you can bring your dog’s regular food. Most medications and supplements are dis-pensed at no extra charge. We offer our guests healthy snacks to keep their energy up and to practice food manners. Treats con-sist of cookies from our bakery, as well as raw fruits and veggies. 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. Our cookies and our meat training treats are available for sale in our reception area., along with Flint River Ranch Premium Dog Food and a variety of collars, leashes and dog toys.
Doggie Day Camp
Our Day Camp Program is open to dogs who come and play for the day., Boarding dogs are also included in our Day Camp program at no extra charge. Day Camp hours are 7 am-6 pm, Monday through Friday, and 9-4 on Saturday and Sunday. Van service is available for pick up and drop off, Monday through Friday, morning and evening, at your home, place of business (Valley Center, Escondido, parts of Pauma Valley) or at a specified stop along Hwy 15. For specific Van stops and times, go to Van Service.
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 likely to suffer from hip, knee or elbow problems, the best medicine is consistent exercise to maintain 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 na-ture to spend their days alone. Dogs learn “doggie manners” through play and interaction with other dogs. They have a language all their own that helps them communicate and resolve differences. Dogs who have not socialized with other dogs often cannot speak or understand this language. Miscommunication leads 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 benefit from socialization. This is best accomplished in a structured, supervised environment 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.

Two Paws Up is a fully socialized day and overnight camp for dogs. 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 unattended. All guests are screened for sociability and temperament before being accepted for day camp or boarding. All dogs over the age of 6 months must be spayed or neutered. Current vaccinations are required. 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 proper manners in a socialized environment.
In some cases training and behavior modification may be recommended as a condition of acceptance into our program. You may also want to add some additional training for your dog while at day camp or boarding. Two Paws Up offers in-camp training as well as private lessons at camp or in your home . If you are interested in having your dog trained while staying at Two Paws Up, we would be glad to put together a training plan to meet your budget as well as your training goals. For more information on the training options we offer, go to Training.
Two Paws Up also offers full service grooming . 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. To see your grooming options, go to Grooming.
We have several buildings for your dog to come in out of the rain, or nap in the shade of our trees on a warm 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 are several large yards for dogs that like to play ball or enjoy game of chase. There is a sandbox for digging, and we have a 5 ft deep swimming pool for dogs that like to swim. During warm months, we also have wading pools for dogs looking to just cool off.
All dogs sleep indoors at night. Most dogs sleep dormitory style. We have a separate room for small dogs, and 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 resting areas or private dining rooms. After a day of play and exercise, most of our guests are more than ready to go to sleep on a soft doggie bed or futon.
