Day Camp

For dogs of all ages.

Day Camp dogs engage in group play and individualized training sessions. All dogs come home happy, exercised, socialized, and with reinforced skills.

Please note that our Day Camp service is currently FULL. Please get on the waitlist by clicking the "Get Started" button above.

Service includes…

  • Full day care for dogs of all ages with a licensed, bonded, and insured rewards-based dog trainer
  • Basic obedience, barrier training, recall, socialization (other dogs, skateboards, neighborhood noises, people, hula hoops, power tools, etc), body handling (nail trims, brushing, ear cleaning, etc), confidence building, park-it, crate training, retrieve, body awareness, focus and engagement, loose-leash walking, proofing current skills, tricks, impulse control, potty training, and house manners
  • Structured group play with a small and specifically selected socialization group
  • Cool-down time with food puzzles and regulated nap times
  • A daily report on your pup's training goals and progress
  • Daily photos of your dog's adventures
  • Meals and/or meds if desired
  • Ridiculous amounts of fun

Day Camp dogs must be...

  • screened and approved by Dog Adventures Northwest through a free 30-Minute Evaluation
  • non-excessive barkers
  • up-to-date on vaccines and parasite-protected
  • content to be confined by crate, tether, exercise pen, or gate with limited barrier frustration or separation anxiety
  • content to share toys and low-value treats with other dogs (high-value treats will be given separately)
  • unable to jump a four-foot chain-link fence
  • dog-social (your pup doesn’t need to be the life of the party, but we do need to know that your dog and the other dogs in our care will feel safe at all times; we unfortunately cannot offer Day Camp for dog-reactive pups)
  • wearing a harness and identification tag (required) and microchipped (highly recommended)

Note: Day Camp is one of our only services that does not include pick-up and drop-off, due to the nature of the program. Pup parents must drop pups off and pick them up at the trainer's home.

Rate: Day Camp is $175 for one dog, with no age restrictions. Send two dogs to Day Camp and the second pup is 50% off. Schedule at least one Day Camp visit per week, and get 10% off ($157.50/day).

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ We are so incredibly glad that we found Jessica Vellella and Dog Adventures Northwest! As new puppy parents, we were anxious to leave our doodle Wally for our first vacation away but after speaking with our trainer, we were confident that Wally would be in the best hands. Jessica met with us ahead of time at her home to get to know Wally and answer any questions we had. We booked a test run weekend ahead of our 10 day vacation to help Wally adjust to her home and time away. During the test run, Jessica sent us so many photos and texts of our sweet smiling pup that we could actually enjoy our weekend in Bend. We also scheduled a few adventure day camp sessions with Jessica between the test run and the vacation to make sure Wally felt extra comfortable - this was absolutely worth it and Wally adores Jessica. Over the 10 day vacation, Jessica was an incredible communicator, sent us detailed notes around training and how he was adjusting. We felt so good that Wally was enjoying his adventures, learning tons and having a vacation of his own! We highly recommend Jessica and seriously cannot say enough positive things about our experience with Dog Adventures Northwest!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ We contacted Dog Adventures Northwest when we were looking for some help with our highly impressionable and overly exuberant three month old German Shorthaired Pointer, Rupert. We were looking for services to help us give Rupert a solid foundation of good behaviors including house manners. Signing up with Gie for Day Camp was the best decision we could have made. Gie is easy going, insightful and experienced. Rupert has been attending Dog Day Camp with Gie two days a week for the last five weeks and we’ve been absolutely amazed by the progress we’ve seen. Rupert’s house manners, impulse control, leash manners, and so much more are all further developed than we could have imagined. In addition, an added benefit has been that Gie has also worked to help us learn so that we can continue the training she does with him ourselves. We’re so pleased with our Gie experience and we look forward to having a bright doggy future with Dog Adventures Northwest.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Our first experience with Dog Adventures NW was puppy training day camp and overnights, which was amazing! Now, we have a full-grown, high-energy pup who loves adventures! We joined Bobby's outdoor adventure group and it has been amazing. Our dog is over-the-moon excited when Bobby comes to pick her up each week. He takes the best action photos of her running, playing, swimming, and resting with friends. Bobby has been very communicative and lovely to work with. I fully trust him with Juniper. We have a tired and happy pup come home each week! Dog Adventures NW for the win!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Dog Adventures Northwest ROCKS! What an amazing service. Our high-energy, 21-month-old, 80 lbs teenage Rhodesian Ridgeback has been with DANW from a young age. She goes on twice weekly adventures with the amazing Cyrus. She has the best time while out in amazing nature settings with a small group of dog buddies. She comes home very happy and exhausted. They have convenient scheduling, communication, and billing through their online portal. Tons of pics and a pet report after each adventure. Trainers will let you know about estimated pick-up and drop off time - this service is dialed. Super happy with the other trainers we have used as well and it's obvious they all love their job. We have also used DANW for Day Camps and when we are out of town it's our trusted place for Boarding as well. Great communication with the owner, Kerry. She will work with you to find the best fit for your dog. Can't say enough great things about DANW.
