10 Things You May Not Know About Camp Canine

1. We have VIP Cat Lodging

We have an entire room dedicated to our VIP camper: the VIP cat room is a spacious private room. It features a choice of comfy beds and chairs, scratching posts, greenery, toys, and a window overlooking the rest of our cattery. These VIP guests are treated like royalty!

 

2. We have four fur-bulous groomers!

Sarah, Kathy, Melina and Laurie can’t wait to pamper your pooch. Check out a blogpost we did outlining the grooming experience, and call today to book! Our grooming salon often books up a week in advance, so plan ahead!

Our employees are CPR-certified thanks to on-site classes given by Dr. Lisa Lippman. Learn more about Dr. Lisa Lippman here!

 

4. Our assistant manager, Emily, used to work with the circus!

Emily started working with the circus in when she was 22-years-old.  She has worked with Ringling Bros, The Big Apple Circus, and more!

 

5. We have Valet Barking

If you are coming to camp in a cab or car, or you can’t make it down the stairs, give us a call! We’ll leash your dog up and meet you on the curb. We call this our “valet barking.” And, of course, we offer this to our cat parents, too! “Valet meowing” just doesn’t sound as good …

Working later than 8:30pm? Call us! Our pick up options extend until 10pm. We’ll put you on our schedule so that our overnight crew knows to expect you.

8. We partner with a bunch of awesome dog-centered businesses

In fact, we wrote a whole blogpost about them. These brands include Classic Kids Photography, Dog Swag, Real Happy Dogs, Amuse Pooch Treats, Dog Cakes for Dogs and Andrea Arden Dog Training!

 

9. We have a Hall of Fame

Chances are you’ve probably seen it: our Wall of Fame features all of the pups that we have fostered here at Camp before they found their furever homes. Through our partnership with Animal Lighthouse Rescue (and other rescues like Muddy Paws and Pup Stars), we have fostered nearly 200!
