Camp Canine — Our Doggie Day Care

Dogs at Animal Family's Camp Canine

Animal Family “Camp Canine” is just what the Doctor ordered! Camp Canine is a doggie day care that offers a safe place to socialize your 4-legged family members. Dogs will be able to play with and learn how to be a dog with other 4-legged campers in a “Pack” setting. We understand that dogs are part of the family and we want you to have a fun, stimulating and safe place to bring your dog every day rather than having the guilt of leaving your dog at home bored.

All dog fun:

  • Large yard for the dogs to play in, connected with our Boarding Facility
  • We have 2 pools! One is a large 500–gallon pool and for the little dogs a wading pool.
  • A Slide, jumps, tunnels and other dog safe equipment to play with.
  • Camp staff to supervise the fun. Camp staff will evaluate behavior and place dogs in different groups based on size, age and activity level.
  • Our Staff look forward every day to coming and doing a job most people only dream about... Petting, loving and snuggling with your canine camper!

Puppy Fun:

  • This is a great opportunity for puppies.
  • Puppies are out often enough to help with housebreaking.
  • They stay social and learn how to play with other dogs in a pack setting.
  • They build good social skills for later on in life.
  • Camp teaches the puppy that it's not scary to come to the Veterinary clinic
