What makes us different also makes us special!

Two Paws Up is not a franchise. We are one of the first cage free boarding facilities licensed to operate in San Diego County. We celebrated 15 years in business this year, so we have lots of experience socializing dogs in an open environment. Since many of our guests have come from rescues, we are very familiar with separation anxiety, fear aggression, resource guarding and a lot of other baggage rescue dog can bring to a new home. We can give you advice,. We can help you with training and socialization so your dog has a chance at a normal, happy, well adjusted life.

Two Paws Up makes forever friends. It is our goal to developlong term relationships with you and your dog, so we become part of your extended family. Many of our customers, we are on the second and third generation of dogs at Two Paws Up.

We offer our customers peace of mind. Owners know that we treat our guests as if they were our own dogs. We are small enough and personal enough to know all of our guest dogs by name and personality, so we know how to keep them safe and happy during their stay with us. We are all about the dogs. We have created an environment where dogs can relax, have fun, and most of all, be themselves. Whether dogs come for the day or spend a week or two with us, they consider a visit with us to be a vacation. They don’t worry about where their folks are. They know they will be back for them. We don’t have web cams. Our facility is just too big and the dogs run around too much. However, we frequently post camp pictures on our web site and Facebook page for all to see.

We have an acre of property in the country for the dogs to run and play. There is a grassy field to play ball; a sandbox for digging; a swimming pool for swimmers and wading pools for the dogs to swim or just cool off in the water. Our fields and play yards are large enough for the dogs to run. We have several buildings the dogs have access to during the day, so there is always a choice about whether to be outside or inside. This also means there is always access to potty outside, so all of your hard earned potty train-ing is not compromised.

     Our exceptional team provides dogs in our community with a home away
   from home to play, learn, and relax in safety and comfort; and gives their  
             human families peace of mind while they are away from them.


Camp is closed for pick up or drop off on New Year’s Day, July 4th, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Holiday pick up may be available by special arrangement only and is subject to a $20 after hours fee.

We accept Cash, Check, Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.
Payment is due when your dog departs unless you have purchased one of our
prepaid discount packages in advance.

We are truly a socialized boarding facility. Our guests are not normally kenneled at all during the day. Around noon, we have quiet time, where we encourage the dogs to take a nap. But our nap time is socialized. The dogs can choose their favorite quiet shady place to take a snooze. After nap time, it is back to playing until it is time for the day campers to go home.

Our overnight charges are based on a 24 hour day. If your dog arrives at 9:00 am, your overnight is not over until 9:00 am the following day.

We don’t charge extra for our Overnight Campers to attend Day Camp. We also don’t charge extra for treats or dispensing most medications. We bake our own cookies using all natural human grade ingredients, and we offer fruits and veggies to dogs that like them, all at no extra charge.

We cater to dogs of all sizes. About 25% of our regular day campers and boarders are dogs weighing 25 pounds or less. Many of our large dogs actually prefer to play with the little guys. We teach the big dogs and the little dogs to play together, and closely super-vise their play. It is all part of our socialization. Some of our biggest dogs weigh less than 20 pounds. Just ask them. They’ll tell you. At night, however, the littles stay in their own room. We can also accommodate families with large and small dogs so they can stay together as much as they want, day and night.

We are not a franchise. Our facility is owner operated and owner managed. We have been in business for thirteen years, so we have lots of experience socializing dogs. We also have experience working with separa-tion anxiety, fear aggression, resource guarding and a lot of other baggage a rescue dog can bring to a new home. We can give you advice,. We also have a trainer available to help you deal with these issues so your
We cater to dogs of all ages. Puppies and older dogs both have special needs, which we understand and accommodate. Being around active younger dogs can keep the seniors young, as long as they don’t get stepped on. Being with more mature dogs helps youngsters learn manners much more quickly than they would if they only associated with puppies.

Food is included in the price for overnight guests. But we don’t feed just any food. We feed Flint River Ranch Premium Dog food in 4 different flavors (Original recipe with chicken, Lamb & Rice, Fish & Sweet Potato, and Senior/Lite with glucosamine added. Our meals also include a special fish soup to moisten the dry food and whet the appetites of our most discriminating guests. A well fed dog is a relaxed dog, and we like our dogs to relax while in our care. We also accommodate special diets and medications, again at no extra charge, so there is minimal disruption of your dog’s regular routine. For puppies and high activity dogs, we often feed an additional meal to keep their energy up. We are glad to discuss that with you if we feel it is in the best interest of your pooch.

At night, all of our dogs sleep inside insulated rooms. We have fans and heaters to regulate the temperature so the dogs stay comfortable despite the temperature outside. If it is particularly cold, we have extra coats and blankets for short haired and thin skinned dogs. Dogs are grouped at night by compatibility, to ensure everyone has a good night’s sleep. We have cameras in all of our sleep rooms and most public areas, to ensure the safety of your dog. Small dogs have their own sleep room. If a dog is not quite ready for dormitory sleeping, or you prefer your dogs to sleep alone, we have private sleeping areas as well.

Our facility is staffed 24 hours a day. Our guests are never alone, day or night.

We like to send our dogs home clean. We give complimentary baths to dogs who stay with us a week and for those who have discount overnight packages. We also offer full service grooming for day and overnight campers. We have a nominal charge for baths for short stays unless you have an overnight discount package, but the sweet smell of a tired clean dog is definitely worth the price.
