Vaccine Requirements



Canine Influenza (first time your dog receives, it is one shot then a 2 week waiting period, then another booster)

Bordetella vaccine and negative fecal test within six months*

*Since 2015 we have required the fecal test and bordetella every six months. This has greatly reduced our kennel cough rate and keeps your dog up to date on the current strain that may be going around.

Who is Camp Canine,
Camp Canine is a family-owned company that loves and respects dogs of all breeds. Our staff are all dog lovers too. Your dogs are your best friend and locking them up in a cage all day while at work or on vacation can beDSC00027 very hard on them and you. Your dog will play the day away in our 10,000 square foot facility. We offer dog daycare, freestyle boarding (only in a kennel to eat and sleep), grooming and training. While in daycare or boarding, your dog will enjoy spacious, supervised play areas with other dogs of their size or activity level. We have large rubberized flooring play areas, agility ramps, rest areas, and even swimming pools for hot summer days. All our Camp Counselors are trained in dog behavior and first aid. Your pet is number one at Camp Canine and they are treated the way you want them to be treated, with lots of love and respect.

Why Camp Canine?
Dogs thrive in a social, interactive and playful environment. Dogs that chew, bark or are bad may not be getting enough attention or exercise.  Also, for boarding, they are not locked up in a kennel all day and night. They get hours of playtime with other dogs and our staff is with them as well.  We do suggest before boarding, you use our daycare services a few times so your dog gets comfortable being here. This will make their boarding experience much better.
Bring them to Camp Canine, 8,000 sq ft of Inside Play Areas With Access to Outside.  Separate Play Groups for Small Dogs and Medium to Large Dogs and Activity Level for Hours of Safe Play.
