Welcome to Camp Merricks
Farm Fun for Your Dog.
When your dog stays with us at Camp they get all the fun of being on the farm. As long as it's not raining, days are spent rolling in the grass, digging in the dirt, and playing with Camp mates. At Camp, dogs are free to be dogs!
Camp Merricks is a vacation spot for your dog. At Camp dogs can enjoy a day or weeks of country life. There are things to climb on, friends to chase, room to run, places to dig and in warm weather water to play in.
Bring Your Own Bed
Bring your dog's own bed. Each dog is assigned a size appropriate crate to allow them to use their beds. Freedom of movement is part of the Camp experience. We only crate overnight after "nighttime snacks". Daycare is included with boarding days. *Boarding drop offs before Noon and pick ups after Noon incur a daycare charge.
Bring your dog's food from home so there are no tummy troubles over a sudden change of diet and environment.
Please do not bring your dog's favorite toy. We have toys for them to play with here.
Daycare & Socialization
A tired dog is a good dog.
Dogs are social creatures! They enjoy playing with other dogs and exploring their environments. At Camp your dog can spend the day wandering around the play yards smelling things, digging holes, climbing, jumping, running and interacting with other dogs.
If you have an extra energetic dog and not enough time or energy yourself to keep them fully exercised and happy, dog daycare can help! Have a day trip and don't want to worry about your dog at home alone? Dog daycare is here!
Come for a tour and see all Camp has to offer for dogs of all energy levels. Camp Counselor, Tiggy, (shown in the photos) is happy to keep the more rambunctious friends entertained.
You can see the difference in your pup after a day at Camp!
“I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love. For me, they are the role model for being alive.”
