Comfortable Boarding for Your Dog

If you're going on an extended trip, then you should rely on the Carlson Canine Camp team to care for your dog. Your dog will be taken care of by a team of dog experts who will provide great customer service for both you and your furry friend.


At check in, you select from a menu of services for your dog to customize their stay. During the stay, you may choose to bring your own food or we provide a high quality dog food, Chicken Soup for the Dog Lovers Soul, for your pet. Dogs are fed according to your requested schedule and have four individual potty times in outside play yards daily. At bedtime, with owner’s permission, all dogs receive a peanut butter stuffed Kong.  


For an additional fee, you can have us train your dog while you’re gone. Your dog will be trained in the areas you specify. You can also order grooming service for your dog prior to pick up.


We highly recommend touring the facility at any time during our regular hours. Please make boarding reservations well in advance to secure your dog’s kennel. We need confirmation of required vaccinations when making reservations. Your veterinarian may fax them to our office.

I found Carson Canine Camp 2 years ago. We needed a trainer to train our new Rottie. My husband and I visited the facility and were very impressed. Kira has been trained and has attended classes with Tanya and Jan. They  are wonderful thorough trainers.   Kira has the best disposition as a result of the training she has had.  Kira has spent time for vacation boardings, training and day care.  Each time I mention day care Kira gets so excited she can not stand it.

This a top notch facility that has very professional loving staff!!!!
