Delaware North Overnight Dog Boarding Services
Enjoy Peace of Mind While You’re on the Go
At Camp Bow Wow Delaware North, a premier dog boarding facility, Overnight Campers enjoy all-day play and are tucked away each night in their individual Cabins where they sleep on cozy cots with fleece blankets. As the sun sets, each Camper unwinds by enjoying a delicious Campfire TreatTM.
Safety is Our Top Priority
We’re proud to be recognized for our incredibly high safety standards as well as for our:
- Certified Camp Counselors® who are extensively trained in dog behavior, CPR, and pet first aid
- Assurance that all our Campers have passed the Camper Interview, are spayed or neutered, and are current on vaccinations. Learn about our Bordetella policy.
- Live web cams that let you monitor your pup from your computer or mobile device
A Paw above the Rest
Your dog is your family – at Camp Bow Wow Delaware North, we understand that. As dog lovers ourselves, we take your pup’s care very seriously. That’s why we think of ourselves as so much more than just a dog boarding service. We are here to provide love and support for your furry family member while you are away—filling that gap as best we can until your return.
Our Enrichment Model
Dogs need physical, mental and emotional stimulation in order to live a happy and healthy life. While your pup is at Camp, they’ll experience all-day play that emphasizes enrichment. Daily sensory stimulation during group play improves the physical and mental well-being of Campers by:
- Stimulating natural instincts
- Providing a mental workout in addition to physical exercise
- Creating a well-rounded experience
Playtime Plus - Personalized Care for Your Pup
We know dogs. And we know some dogs thrive in a more intimate play setting, with more personalized TLC and more rest time in between play. Our Playtime Plus boarding is perfect for all pups, but especially pups who may need a little more. Your Camper will enjoy spending the day with a maximum of 8 dogs in a play group, which means personalized focus from Camp Counselors and plenty of time to rest and recharge between play. Space is limited for this service – book your spot in advance and treat your pup to a stay designed just for them. Learn more about how Playtime Plus compares to our All-Day Play day care!

Each Camper is required to
- Pass a (free) socialization interview and spend at least one more 1/2 day before an overnight stay.
- Be spayed or neutered if over 7 months old.
Be current on rabies, distemper and bordetella vaccinations. If the bordetella
vaccination has never been given or has expired a waiting period is needed
so dogs can build immunity before coming to Camp. The waiting periods are:
- one-week period after receiving the injectable or oral vaccination
- 48-hours is required after receiving the intranasal vaccination
- We strongly recommend Campers get bordetella boosters every 6 months no matter what type of administration their vet uses. This gives Campers added immunity and has been shown to reduce symptom severity if exposed. Staff dogs that come to Camp are required to follow this 6 month booster policy.
- Strongly consider the Canine Influenza Vaccine. Canine Influenza is serious and can make dogs very ill. Please consult with your vet and/or visit the American Veterinary Medical Association CIV FAQ site.
- Be on a monthly flea and tick medication. Oral or topical types are preferred; flea/tick collars are not allowed at Camp because they cannot be removed quickly in case of emergency. If you use a flea/tick collar it will be kept with your dog's leash while the dog is at Camp.
- Come into camp wearing a Quick Release collar (pinch to open) and a name tag. We sell quick release collars and name tags at low prices for owner convenience.
- Be owned at least 10 days by the person bringing them to Camp. We want the best for each dog. Dogs must feel loved and settled into their new homes. Transitions are very disruptive for dogs and we don’t want Camp to be overwhelming. We offer in-home pet care and dog walking to help you care for your new dog until they may come to Camp.
- We require a FREE interview day and at least one additional 1/2 day (not free) prior to boarding. These two days REALLY help dogs become comfortable at Camp. We want every Camper to enjoy their stay with us and these two adjustment times help tremendously. Owners may use one of the discounted days in the warm-up package for the additional day.
- Dogs need to be dropped off 3 hours before close so they can play a bit and we can get the Cabin and meals all set up for them.
- Not come to Camp if coughing. We do all we can to prevent coughs and all other transmittable canine situations. If your dog has a cough, please do not bring the dog to Camp for at least 14 days after the dog stops coughing. Dogs can shed viruses after the symptoms end and we want to do all we can to stop the spread. Thank you for your cooperation and please let us know if you think you dog could have been exposed at Camp. We do track illnesses so we can take appropriate steps.
- We offer Day Camping all days except for 6 major holidays. Major holidays are: New Year's Day, Easter, Memorial Day, July 4th, Thanksgiving and Christmas Day. On these days we will be open 7:30-10:30 am and 3:30-6:15pm for boarder drop off and pick up only.
- We typically operate weekend hours (7:30 am to 6:15 pm) on other holidays like President's Day, some dates near 7/4, Labor Day and others. We will have signs at Camp before these weekends and post updates.
Due to the number of overnight Campers near major holidays, we are no longer
able to offer 1/2-day day care on:
Good Friday - Easter Sunday
The day before Thanksgiving through the following Sunday
Christmas Eve through the day after Christmas
We will close one hour early (7pm) on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve
