Why Choose Us? I Dogs at Camp Ottawa
Why Choose Us?

18 years of experience.

Originally founded in Uxbridge, Ontario, Dogs at Camp is the original country camp for dogs. Dogs at Camp Ottawa opened in the fall of 2009 and is the original camp in the Ottawa area. Cheryl, the owner, has been working with dogs in off leash play groups since 2001, having owned one of the largest dog daycares in Toronto for 9 years before opening DAC Ottawa. Cheryl is an expert in the area of kennel-free group management and dog care, ensuring the highest standard of care in dog boarding.

When you’ve done something great, others will follow, and there will be copycats (err, copydogs).  That’s what keeps us on our toes!

All of our camp staff are thoroughly trained in Pet First Aid, Understanding Dog Communication, and Managing Off Leash Play Groups.  Staff follow our written procedures and checklists, which cover every aspect of what we do, including cleanliness, and safety measures.

By following these procedures, staff ensure that every corner of the camp is safe and clean, and that every camper has a wonderful experience! We continually review our processes and procedures to ensure that we provide the safest and cleanest environment possible.

We are experts in not only cleanliness and safety, but fun!  We offer the only Recreation Program for dogs in Ottawa! Click here to see what that involves.

A camp for dogs is not just about a nice building, property, and website. What goes on behind the scenes to ensure the safety of every dog in our care is extensive and proven. We continue to improve how we operate, including adding new programs for our Campers and upgrading our facilities. We are always looking for how we can do things better!

We continually strive to provide the best possible experience for each and every dog in our care. Come out and visit with us, meet the staff, tour the facility, and we’re sure that you’ll agree that our experience shows.

We look forward to meeting you and your dog! Book a Tour Request now!
