What if my cat gets sick at Cat Safari?

We think Cat Safari is head and shoulders above any cat care facility out there.  Of course everything about Cat Safari was designed with the health and safety of your cat in mind.  Unlike other cat care facilities, each cat at Cat Safari gets his or her private condo which is under slight negative pressure, […]

Can I Volunteer at Pet Camp?

Sadly, the answer is no.  We’re thrilled that you think being at Pet Camp is so much fun that you want to volunteer to be here. Frankly, we think Pet Camp is the best doggie daycare and pet boarding facility there is, and understand why you would want to spend time with us.  But because […]

Housetraining Your Puppy

Pet Camp, like many pet boarding and doggie day care facilities, offers training.  In fact, we offer two very different types of training: our Camper Cadets,  which focuses on 5 specific items and our Ranger Program which is more customizable.  One of the things that we don’t focus on is housetraining new puppies – not […]

Cats, Dogs, Cows & Spas

Pet Camp is not the glitziest pet care facility around. We pride ourselves on huge outdoor play areas, well trained counselors, amazing infrastructure – but we don’t have California King-size beds for your dog, have flat screen TVs, or offer blueberry facials (which as far as we can tell is just a brand of pet […]

Yikes! I’m Allergic to My Dog!

In the interest of full disclosure, let me start my admitting that I am allergic to dog and cats both (as well as about a million other things).  Yes, I understand this does not make me the prime candidate to run a pet hotel where I am surrounded by dogs and cats every day at […]

Does someone stay at Pet Camp overnight?

One of the amazing things about Pet Camp’s Main Campground is the amount of space we have.  We have over 13,000 square feet of indoor space and 20,000 square feet of outdoor play space.  We have as much room as our large corporate competitor, but only take in 50% as many dogs for doggie daycare […]

FURternity Leave – Not So ‘New’ News at Pet Camp

The New York Times had an article the other week about a company in Minneapolis offering “fur-ternity” leave for new pet “owners.”  The New York Times remarked at how cutting edge this benefit was and implied how hip and cool it must be to work at this company. Let’s start with the glaringly obvious problem […]
