As you’re heading out the door to work, do you ever look back and see your dog’s face as you’re leaving? Ever have a twinge of guilt? Most of us have experienced this feeling and we know how hard it is to think about your pet at home all day without you.

Even though we all try and make sure we have plenty of entertainment for our dogs at home, boredom can bring out some undesirable behaviors in our pets, such as barking, chewing, and general destructive behavior. If this is a concern for you, it might be time to consider Doggy Day Camp.

At Animal Medical Hospital, we’re thrilled to provide Camp AMH – a day care for your dog that’s open 7 days a week. Want to learn more? We thought so!

What is Doggie Day Camp?

Simply put, a doggy day camp is care for your dog during the day. Our camp is open from 7 am – 8 pm seven days a week. While at Camp AMH, your dog gets to socialize and play with other dogs their size for at least 6 hours of fun!

Before your dog begins camp, bring your pet in to meet our Pet Counselors and let us learn a bit about your pet’s personality and needs. We’ll carefully observe them and then determine if your pet is compatible with our Playgroups and Day Camp packages. This initial evaluation is always free. And if you find it hard to get here before your pet’s first day, we allow the evaluation on your pet’s first day at Camp AMH.

All About Camp AMH

At our Doggy Day Camp, we have structured times for play and rest. During playtime, your dog will play in size appropriate play groups, in our indoor, 3,500 square foot climate controlled play area. Play will include any number of fun and safe doggy playground equipment, including pools in the summer.

The indoor area is a mix of doggy turf and smooth indoor flooring, with open windows for fresh air. During rest time, your dog will have a private Cabin or Suite.
