Give Your Dog a Fourth of July Sleepover

by Laura Moss

daycamp2While humans may enjoy the sights and sounds of the Fourth of July holiday, most dogs do not. In fact, the holiday ranks highest in the number of dog runaways due to fear of the loud sounds from nearby festivities.

So, if you are concerned about your best friend’s wellbeing, there is an option for owners. This year, Conejo Valley Animal Hospital is offering a “Doggy Sleep Over.”

“It gives the owners a peace of mind to enjoy the festivities but not have to worry about their dogs getting stressed out by the fireworks,” said Angie Schneider, practice manager. “It’s a chance where they can come and have a fun night with a sleep over.”

For $42, the program will feature soothing music, pet friendly arts and crafts and other four-legged friends for your pets to play with. Reservations are a must as well as having a free Doggy Day Camp evaluation. Your pet must be current and up to date on all vaccines and fecal tests. You do not have to be a patient of CVVH to book your pet.

To reserve you pet’s spot at the Doggy Sleep Over, call 805-495-4671 .

As a service to the community, CVVH also hosts monthly seminars that are open to the public. Each seminar features a guest speaker and gives the community an opportunity to “ask the expert,” said Schneider. “We discuss a hot topic each month,” she said. Most recently topics like rattlesnake avoidance and hiking safety have been covered.

The Conejo Valley Veterinarian Hospital was recently voted #1 Veterinarian for the Ventura County Start’s Reader’s Choice Awards 2014. They also received the Favorite Award for Pet Boarding and Pet Grooming. Go to for more information.
