Per Karen McCarthy, owner of Unleashed! Day Camp: "The safety and wellbeing of our canine campers are our top priorities in all decisions we make. Physical safety is of paramount importance, as are the emotional and mental wellbeing of the canine campers in our care. Our personalized care helps to ensure that our campers leave behaviorally and emotionally better than when they arrive."
Unleashed! takes great pride in providing a safe, clean environment for your canine in which to socialize and play. Dog lovers ourselves, we offer individualized care and attention throughout the day because we recognize that every dog is different.
Why not Doggie Day Care?
The Unleashed! Day Camp was founded to meet an unmet need. Facilities in the area did not meet our clients' requirements for a safe facility where their dogs could learn and play. We are meeting that need with a program that offers integrative care to our canine campers with focus on their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.
How are we different from "Day Care"?
Our campers are offered off leash socialization experiences in small groups and are always supervised by a trained camp counselor who is physically present with the campers. Campers are hand selected into small groups based on their size, personalities and play styles.
