Critter Camp caters to each client’s furry family members, ensuring a memorable vacation for Fidos and Felixes alike. A cage-free getaway for four-legged friends, Critter Camp keeps a counselor on-site 24 hours a day to aid homesick pets or separation-anxious alpha dogs, and security cameras are planted throughout the facility so proud parents can check on their pets while they play. Dogs can choose from 10 play yards to romp in with friends, enjoy a dive into the swimming pool or the sandbox stacked with bones, or placate a human’s seemingly insatiable need to throw a frisbee over and over again. Play groups are arranged by size and temperament, separating possessive pomeranians from bashful bulldogs.
