With about 24 million
people per year nationwide traveling with their family
dog, it may not be surprising that there are over 20
dog camp sessions offered throughout the United States
and Canada. A dog camp is not a kennel where you drop
your dog off while you go on a vacation. It is a
planned group event where everyone brings their dog
and the majority if not all of the travel itinerary
revolves around dog-friendly activities where both you
and your pooch can participate together. Some dog
lovers come to let their already well-mannered pooch
socialize with other four-legged friends, some to
teach their dog a new trick or a new sport, and some
just to give their dog a chance to be a dog on a
perfect "just for dogs" getaway. One of the
big advantages at a dog camp is that all of the people
attending either have a dog or are dog lovers and
everyone participating can share and enjoy the common
bond of canine companionship.
