What makes us different

Group-Appropriate Outdoor Play

  • While spending the day at The Great Outdoors, your dog will have ample opportunities to socialize with other pups, similar in size or age but most importantly play style, in a safe environment monitored by our trained staff. Your dog will have plenty of space to run around in one of our outdoor play yards. With over 15,000 sq ft of outside yards we have room for all sizes and style of play. When you pick up your dog after a day of day camp, you’ll find your love ready to relax with you. We have many who fall asleep before they leave the property haha.

Exercise Body & Brains
