Doggie Day Camp
What is Doggie DAYCAMP
Camp K-9 Doggie Day Camp offers pet parents the chance to have their dogs run, play and socialize throughout our Doggie Day Camp. Doggie Day Camp will help reduce anxiety and boredom in your pet while you are away and provide them with the attention they may need. Our Pet First Aid and CPR certified Camp Counselors will find the playgroup that best fits your dogs personality and size. A well exercised, socialized, and tired dog is a happy dog.

Do the dogs really nap?
Of course they do! Our dogs nap in their playgroups with their friends, and their assigned Camp Counselor. We offer a cage free nap time, unless otherwise requested by a customer. The lights get turned off, we play calming music, and the dogs are rest. Many people ask us how do you get them to nap, together. Well its pretty simple. Just like toddlers, they are accustom to routine. We have many routines here at Camp to keep our campers having a great time, safe and healthy. This is just one of many.
Do the dogs get to go outside?
They sure do! Even though we are an indoor facility we do have an outdoor area for the dogs to play, get some fresh air and of course do their business. The dogs rotate throughout the day going outside so that each playgroup gets some outside time. In the summer of 2019 we expanded our outdoor area and the dogs are loving the new space. We are very pleased with our new outdoor section and are continuing to make improvements to it.
We often times will go out and play bubbles which is a big hit for our canine friends.
