Whats New at Camp Cocker

Enter the Camp Cocker Calendar Contest for 2017!

--Now Closed--

Thank you for everyone who fundraised, donated and shared our calendar contest in support of our rescue!

Don't Miss Out! Our supporters from all over the country will be joining us as they do every year!


Lodging: to look for dog friendly lodging, check out Bring Fido

Attire:  for the daytime, it will be warm, bring short sleeves/summer clothing, for the night time, bring warm clothes or long sleeves as it gets chilly being so close to the water.

Dogs: there will be a lot of dogs in attendance, please do not bring dogs that will be stressed out by this or whom are not dog friendly.  If you have a dog that might be "okay" but needs some time out, bring an x-pen to give them a safe space to relax. 

Children: if you are bringing children, please know that cocker spaniels are not the best breed to be handled by toddlers. Maybe your cocker spaniel is child friendly, but not all are and the safety of all children is our priority. There is a smaller dog park attached to the large dog park and this might be a great place for the families with small children to hang out in. (there is also a child's playground in the park a few hundred yards down if your children get bored and need something fun to do).

Other fun things to do while in town:  downtown San luis Obispo has lots of cute shops and the famous Bubblegum Alley (which is two doors down from our favorite pet store, Tails Pet Boutique).   Tell the nice folks at Tails Pet Boutique that Camp Cocker sent 'ya! (they used to give us a sweet rescue discount when we had our rescue facility in SLO county from 2012-2013)    


See you there!!
