Our Day camp training is like no other. Every dog that comes to us will be treated like family, loved, nurtured and extremely well  will be cared for  just like he/she is one of our own.  Our place will be their home away from home. We feel that day camp training must be much more than dogs playing together or  being take out of a crate for just an hour of training and play time.
