They can give your dog some love and affection and personal attention.

Dogs are grouped together by size and temperament to ensure that dogs with similar personalities remain together.

Home Away From Home

It’s this kind of personal attention that differentiates a really great dog boarding camp from a plain old dog kennel. Although many pet owners are concerned that their dogs will miss them, the truth is that most dogs love to play and rest at a daycare camp and return home refreshed and rejuvenated – i.e. a true “vacation for dogs”. You can think of a camp k9 as a place where your dog will enjoy spending some down time, being in a different environment and playing with some new canine friends.

Your dog is a member of your family and deserves to be treated as such. The responsibility of caring for your dog is something to be taken very seriously. When you leave your pet in the care of a dog boarding business, you are leaving your pet in hands of people who are not just professionals at caring for dogs but true dog lovers.

Catering to Your Pet’s Uniqueness

If your dog has a special diet or certain food allergies, be sure and inform the staff in advance so they can accommodate this. Communication with the facility’s employees beforehand is essential to ensure that they are aware of your dog’s unique needs and requirements. Also, you can bring your pet’s favorite toys and bedding so your dog feel even more at home during their holiday.

Security and Safety Precautions

Security and safety is naturally a top priority for a k9 camp. Only trained employees will be in contact with the animals, and in addition to physical measures to prevent anyone from entering the facility or any of the dogs being able to leave and potentially injure themselves, many employ the use of security cameras and sometimes even live web cams, so you can view what your dog is doing live over the Internet.
