Dog Daycare

Safe and Fun Dog Daycare on the Upper West Side, New York City

Working long hours and want to come home to a happy, relaxed dog?  Let your best friend make new friends at Camp Canine! We're conveniently located at 46 West 73rd St., NYC.

Many pet parents worry that their dog is bored, damaging belongings or furnishings while they are at work or that they aren’t getting enough exercise. It’s not easy to provide dogs the kind of exercise and attention they require each day. And, it’s not always easy to find a place that you can trust. While spending the day at Camp Canine, your dog will have ample opportunities to socialize with other dogs, similar in size and age, in a safe environment monitored by our trained staff.  When you pick up your dog after a day of doggie daycare, you’ll find your companion to be calm, content, and ready to relax with you.

Why Choose Camp Canine's Dog Daycare Program?

Playing with canine companions is a great way to reduce anxiety, get exercise and build socialization skills.  For puppies, day care is a great way to socialize with dogs that are fully vaccinated and have been temperament tested, providing a safe environment to make friends.

With Camp Canine daycare, when you arrive home at the end of the day, instead of having a frantic dog clamoring for your attention, your dog will be relaxed and happy to see you.

What's Dog Daycare Like at Camp Canine?

While at daycare, each dog receives a mid-day relief walk, breaks for meals and naps according to their individual needs, and plenty of time to play with their furry friends in our group-play environment. Each camper has the option to add-on activities to fill up their day. When here for lodging, each dog gets three relief walks a day, and comfy fleece bedding to curl up with at night. They can sleep in a bunk, or in our free-roam VIP option.

Our dogs are divided into 3 playrooms: the Teeny Lounge (less than 15lbs), the Small Dog Playroom (15-30lbs) and the Big Dog Playroom (30+).

We offer 5 add-on activities:

  • Central Bark Walk: A 30-min walk In Central Park, one-on-one with your pup and their favorite counselor. They can be treated to a hot dog from an NYC street cart if their diet allows!
  • Fetch ‘Til You Drop: Your pup can choose any ball or plushie from the toy chest in our Fetch Room and our counselors will play fetch, tug, chase - your pup makes the rules!
  • Cuddle Session: Give your pup time away from the hustle and bustle of the room. No distractions, just cozy bedding and a Counselor to cuddle.
  • Brain Games: We have a large collection of engaging puzzles and snuffle mats; if your pup likes using their brain to find tasty treats, then they'll love our Brain Games!
  • Craft Time: Your pup will get one-on-one time with their favorite counselor, and you'll get a beautiful masterpiece painted by their paws!

We love Camp Canine! Milo gets so excited when he realizes that's where we are going.  He flings his little body at the staircase. The staff is all amazing, friendly and great with dogs.  He comes home happy and exhausted!  I'm very picky about who takes care of my dog, but I don't worry at all when he's at Camp.

We *love* Camp Canine, and our dog Cedar loves it even more! I'm always in awe with how the staff treats him. When I drop him off, he practically bursts with excitement. (He doesn't even get that excited to see me at the end of the day!) The staff are always in the best mood, and it seems like they are well supported in their work...which I think translates to even better treatment of the pups. I never feel even a tinge of guilt dropping Cedar off, because it's so obvious that he loves spending the day there!

Camp Canine is the best. Tania and her staff are so great with my Pup. It truly is her second home. My pup gets so excited when we walk down the street towards Camp Canine she literally pulls me to the door.

I cannot say enough good things. I highly recommend taking your best friend to this wonderful place. My dog is very sensitive and skittish - afraid of her own shadow. The love, attentiveness and patience everyone has shown her (including the owner, managers and handlers) has been above and well-beyond. On top of that I'm never waiting long to pick up or drop off because Camp Canine is properly staffed. Additionally, they are always happy in this place....makes for some of the best moments of my day. Thank you to all my friends at Camp Canine!
