Day Camp

Camp Sweet Camp

Rather than leaving the TV on all day or having your dog’s bark wake the neighbor’s baby, bring him to Best Friends Pet Care Doggy Day Camp. Who said it was just for kids?

Your dog will enjoy safe, supervised social play with certified Doggy Day Camp counselors. With fun toys and play equipment, high-energy pups can keep active, and sedentary dogs can get healthy.

Want to see for yourself? All our locations offer a webcam so you can check in during lunch. Although some humans make it a habit to watch all day! A dog playing sure beats working.

We interview every dog to make sure camp is the right place for your pet. And if so, get ready for fun. With holiday parties and social events throughout the year, camp is your dog’s home away from home.

Focus on Safety
We take note of your pet’s special needs and we monitor each guest closely throughout the day. We require proof of vaccinations for all of our dog guests. Dogs must also have a negative fecal. Dogs must be current on Rabies, DHPPv/DA2PPv (distemper, hepatitis, parainfluenza, parvovirus) and Bordetella.

Any medical needs or medications must be disclosed to our staff in advance so that we can provide the best care for your pet.

In order to preserve the safety of our staff and fellow campers, please note that certain breeds may not participate in Day Camp nor will any known aggressive dogs.

Valet Services
To make things even easier, we’ll pick up and drop off your furry friend for any of our services.

Come! The first day is on us! So, go on, give your dog a bone.
