Camp Canine’s Story
Every single member of our staff truly cares about dogs. They have been selected for their vast knowledge and experience, but it’s their love that makes Camp Canine special. Only you love your dog more than we do!
Camp Canine has been locally owned and operated since 2012 by Tania Isenstein. A lifelong animal lover, Tania had been a decade-long client of Camp Canine when she left her career as a lawyer on Wall Street to take ownership. She wanted to spend her days with the furry friends of her beloved Spaniel mix Mooshoo and create a full service dog care to help busy New Yorkers lead full lives while providing an extended family for their pooches. She knows all too well the balancing the demands of a career and caring for a fur child can be challenging. Tania can often be found working to make Camp Canine the best facility in NYC, with a sleeping dog or two on her desk and a smile on her face.
The mission of Camp Canine is to treat each and every dog and cat as if he/she were our own. We are all animal lovers and pet parents and have created a place we would want for our own furry, best friends. Pets will have a fun safe place to play during the day and a secure night time environment. It is our sincere pleasure to serve our campers every day and to meet any special needs of theirs such as administering medications, providing extra treats and special care for older pups, just to name a few. Our goal is to give our clients peace of mind knowing their pampered pets will be given top notch care.
At Camp Canine, we are firm believers in giving back to the community, and we do so in as many ways as we can. We usually have one or two foster dogs available for adoption who are staying at Camp. We partner with Animal Lighthouse Rescue to provide these adoptable dogs a comfy temporary home and much needed socialization. See our some of the dogs we have fostered who now have loving furrever homes along with our current adoptable foster dogs here!
We also work with local Upper West Side SavABul to help socialize rescued pit bulls so that they can find furrever homes.
We host meetups regularly to benefit The Toby Project, a nonprofit organization working to end the killing of adoptable dogs and cats each year in New York City’s animal shelters through a targeted, free and low-cost spay/neuter initiative.
