MAY 19, 2011…Are you tired of worrying about your dog while you are away from home for even just a day? Do you wish your dog had companionship, activity and exercise while you are at work? Do you need help with house-training or teaching your dog good behavior?

The new Camp Canine at Animal Family Veterinary Care Center, Davenport, is just what the doctor ordered. Camp Canine is day care for dogs.

“Our goal is to care for the whole pet,” says Scott Bernick, DVM, senior partner at Animal Family. “We want to look after our clients’ pets’ physical health and also their emotional well-being.

“Many of our clients lead busy lives that include long workdays,” says Dr. Bernick. “They are looking for a safe place where they know their pet family member will be well-cared for, and enjoy spending time.”

The new Camp Canine facility is designed with the pet in mind. The primary focus is on keeping pets socialized, happy and active during the day in a safe environment. The camp offers structured activities, outdoor playtime, dog-friendly toys, and time spent with other well-socialized peers.

Camp Canine is divided into sections that can safely accommodate the different ages, sizes and activity levels of the four-legged campers. There is a separate puppy care area to help younger pets learn to socialize with other dogs and allow for working on house-training and other social skills. Campers are supervised by knowledgeable, caring Camp Canine staff members.

All dogs are evaluated to ensure they are placed in an appropriate social setting. Dogs may be placed with one other dog, a group or just a camp staffer for one-on-one supervision. All pets at Camp Canine get quality playtime with a staff member multiple times throughout the day. In rainy or colder weather, playtimes may be shorter but more frequent.

Camp Canine hours are 7:30 AM to 6 PM, Monday through Friday; and 8 AM to 2 PM on Saturdays. Visits can be hourly, 1/2 day or all-day. Owners can purchase punch cards in 10- or 20-day increments. One free day is given for every 10 days purchased, or three free days for every 20 days purchased.

All dogs must be current on vaccines, including DHPP, Rabies, Bordetella, and receive flea with heartworm prevention every 30 days.
