A Paw Above the Rest

Your dog is your family – at Camp Bow Wow Dobson Ranch Mesa, 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

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 is over 3 months 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 oral vaccination
      • 48-hours is required after receiving the injection or intranasal vaccination
      • 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.
    • We highly recommend being 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 - these are required for safety. We sell quick release collars and name tags at low prices for owner convenience. If a Camper comes in without both and owner does not purchase them at drop off, we will select a collar ($17or less) and/or make a name tag for $19 and charge the owner.
    • Be owned at least 15 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 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. If you have already had an interview and it has been over 5-7 months, we do require a day or two of camp (not free) prior to attending boarding. 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.
    • If your dog has a cough, please do not bring the dog to Camp for at least 5 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. We do all we can to prevent coughs and all other transmittable canine situations. 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, Labor Day, Memorial Day, July 4th, Thanksgiving and Christmas Day. On these days we will be open 7:00-10:00 am and 4:00-7:00pm for boarder drop off and pick up only.

Due to the number of overnight Campers near major holidays, we will be limited on Day Care near the holidays.

We also have a surcharge on holiday boarding of $5 each night.

Overnights are a minimum of 2 nights over and near the holidays.
