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 $150 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 ($135/day).

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.

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.

We have a very smart Australian Cattle Dog that needed smarter humans. Dog Adventures Northwest entered into our lives, and suddenly we have a dog that gets complimented on his manners at the park or in a dog-friendly shop. Dog Adventures Northwest helps bridge the gap between us and our animal, and they are able to do this in small bites that we can easily incorporate into our day to make training... dare I say... easy.

If you are looking for a dog that you can bring ANYWHERE, Dog Adventures Northwest can provide exactly that in a gentle way. We highly recommend them and cannot say enough positive things about how they approach teaching you and your companion!

Dog Adventures Northwest is amazing and I highly recommend them! The owner, Kerry, is so kind, professional, and knowledgeable. She paired us with the perfect trainer for our new puppy, based on our needs and situation. Kate, our trainer, was incredible and our puppy loves her. He is always so excited to see her and sad to say goodbye. We have done a mix of basic training and socialization, including puppy Day Camp with Hannah (who is amazing as well). My pup learned a lot and had so much fun. The knowledge I have gained is valuable as I continue to reinforce my Bogey's behavior at home. I'm looking forward to future adventures with DANW!
