Msmaria Definitely listen to your dog. My dog tells me if he likes a place of not by how he acts when I pick him up. If he goes back and noses the person, he likes it there. If he comes and hides behind me when picked up I dont take him back there no matter how good other reviews are.

Theres a camp Bow Wow in Southern California. We only went once. Dexter did not like it and he also tried to hump my maltipoo when he got home from his first day. A double No No. Petsmart (another commercial day camp) has worked for us though. We switch between that one and a private ran day camp (with limited hours and farther away)because Dexter loves the staff at both. If he ever shows me hes not happy there I wouldnt take him back.

AKIRA3 I believe because our pups can't talk, they "show" us so many times what they are feeling.
Funny, there was a camp bow wow here where I live.
We boarded our 9 yr old dobie there while we went on our first cruise. He was not himself for WEEKS after spending 5 days there. This was the last time we went on vacation or boarded him anywhere. It was like he was lost mentally. He couldn't walk for a few days when he got home. We never found out what happened to him. Whenever called to ask, they said he just didn't socialize much, laid in his cage and didn't move around the 5 days he was there.

Previous to this boarder we used to take our 2 boys to a family run boarding place. This was a place in someone's home.
They had lots of land, great runs, and warm places for them to sleep.
Our boys would practically RUN from our car to them. I believe they were treated so well the dogs hated to leave and looked forward to being there. It "showed" in their behavior.
sadly these great people decided to retire., hence the move to camp bow wow.

I agree with everyone else. Listen to your pup.

Baillif When you board a dog with people that have a clue it can show up there with behaviors like that towards everyone outside the family and by the time you get it back it will at the very least not be showing that to the staff.

KathrynApril Which state was this one in? I was thinking of boarding my puppy there, once he has all his shots, so he gets some exposure in case I ever need to board him in the future.

JakodaCD OA He'll forgive you Did you see this on the video?

Alessandra Todaro I should have listened and known..... He is irritable bowls so when he gets excited he has to go bad. That's what I thought it was and I left him there to be stressed out and miserable. They didn't even call me when the problem happened....they let him sit there like that all day and I had no idea. I won't ever be going back there again. And no I don't bring him I just dropped him off so he could play and have a good day while I was studying. Lesson learned ... I feel extremely guilty for not just taking him home right then and there
