Our Team

We are so happy to be a part of the Delaware - North community and have gotten to know many wonderful pets (and their parents!) since we opened. Our whole staff would like to thank all our customers for letting us have, as we say, a 'Dog Gone Good' Time!

We think we are the best Camp Counselors your pup could have! Everyone on staff is a SERIOUS dog lover, with practical training in dog behavior certifications in pet first aid and dog CPR. All of us are eager to meet and greet you and your best canine buddy. Collectively we have many years of experience with dogs, and we promise to take the best possible care of your furry friends.

We spend all day at Day Camp, from early in the morning to late in the evening, watching over your Campers. We are the ones who tuck each Camper into their own spacious, comfy and clean Cabin every night.

We pride ourselves on getting to know your pup’s name, who their friends are, and just where they like to be scratched. We will take special care of your furry kids and make sure they have a PAW-some time at Camp. We look forward to meeting you and your furry friends!

    About Us

    Laurie has been a dog lover since birth. John started out with cats, but came to love all pets when he decided that was a requirement for life with Laurie.

    Laurie grew up with sporting dogs in Washington State. Her BA in Chemical Engineering took her to DuPont in NC where she found John. They and their dogs moved to several states before settling back in DE in 1993. She earned an MBA from Drexel in 2004. Like many people in corporations, she lost her job in December 2008. It was a very tough time, but they invested all most all they had in starting in-home services in May 2009 then Camp in November of that year.

    They have a daughter, Denise, and her husband, Jeff, in NC and a son/nephew, Aaron (families are complicated), and his wife, Tiffany, in Seattle and three 'perfect' grandchildren.

    Fun Facts

    What I love most about my job: Seeing the staff learn and grow and the happy owners. We love the dogs like crazy, but making the people happy is more challenging and very satisfying.
    Our pets: Sparkle and Breeze, Golden Retrievers
