Dogs at Camp Ottawa

Ottawa’s favourite dog camp offering kennel-free boarding and dog daycare, located west of Kanata!

On 160 acres of beautiful farmland right on the banks of the Mississippi River, with a 2 acre fenced play park and 3000 sq foot indoor play area – dogs of all ages love camp!

Dogs at Camp provides kennel-free dog daycare and overnight dog boarding, serving Ottawa, Arnprior, Pakenham, Kinburn, Kanata, Stittsville and surrounding areas. Our Camp opened in 2009 and is celebrating 10 years of caring for Ottawa’s dogs this September! We have set the standard for kennel-free dog boarding and daycare in the capital region and take pride in our unique environment and new, one-of-a-kind recreation program designed specifically for our campers.

What Does Camp Look Like?

Our campers are great models - check out these photos! Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for the latest happenings at camp.

Dogs at Camp is a unique environment, where dogs spend their days playing with other friendly dogs, supervised at all times by our Camp Counsellors.  We have large open spaces for dogs to run and play! Camp for dogs is not at all like a traditional dog boarding kennel. What does it look like? Here are just a few photos, but click below to see many more!

Who We Are

All of our staff are Professional, Experienced dog lovers who are "Dog Parents" themselves!

Our Camp Manager, Camp Supervisor, Recreation Leader and Camp Photographer, along with our Lead Camp Counsellors, and Camp Counsellors, all work very hard every day to ensure that every camper has a fun and safe experience at Camp.

The owner of DAC, Cheryl Caswell, has 18 years of experience caring for dogs in open environments. She is an expert in the field of kennel-free dog boarding/daycare, as well as experienced dog trainer and Pet First Aid Instructor. This knowledge provides a unique experience for your dog that is unmatched in the Ottawa area.

We share your love of dogs, and when it comes to the care of our own dogs, we expect nothing but the very best. We miss our dogs when we’re apart from them, and so we certainly understand that you’ll miss yours, too. We make camp fun, and do our best to ensure that each camper has a wonderful experience whether it be for daycare or boarding.

All Camp Counsellors are trained in Pet First Aid and Canine Communication, among many other things, to provide nothing but the best service to you and your dog.




Exceeding Expectations

Great location, outstanding accommodations, and the very best care for your dog.

We set the example for others!

We are truly kennel-free! All day long your dog will be free to enjoy our huge indoor play room and our 2 acre fenced dog park. Whether they want to run and play, watch all of the activity, or take a nap… our campers make their camp experience their very own! Our one-of-a-kind Recreation Program ensures we have something for everyone to enjoy!

Truly kennel-free, our campers sleep in small groups with other campers with whom they are comfortable.  Our sleeping areas are clean and spacious. In some cases, individual sleeping arrangements are made if your dog is more comfortable sleeping alone.

We also care for special-needs dogs. Give us a call to find out more!

Recreation Program

We are the only camp with a one-of-a-kind Recreation Program.


How about some camp photos? We’ll take some of your dog enjoying camp time.


A bath after camp ensures that your dog will come home looking and smelling his best!

How Do We Compare?

You want the very best for your dog, and we understand, because we do too.

When you're looking for the right spot for your dog, it's natural to compare (and we encourage you to do so)! While comparing, consider the supervision and staff interaction that each facility offers for your dog. Do they engage your dog in physical and mental activities? How much exercise will your dog get? How much time will your dog spend alone? What is the experience/training of the staff? Do they offer walking and hiking trails? Swimming? What do they do in case of emergency?

Not all dog boarding facilities are alike. Compare us to the others.
