"Thanks for so many things ~ picking her up,keeping her that extra day, the darling pictures you enclosed, cleaning her up so as not to be dusty or dirty, and for making her so tired she was  really ready for bedtime rather than playtime the minute she got home. 
We can tell by her behavior that she had a great time and has settled back into her old routine as though she'd never been away."                                              
                   Thanks again for everything!

"We refer many of our clients out to Kristen at Jimmydog. We received an excellent review of Jimmydog today and we will continue to highly recommend you!"

Our pets are  a part of our family.
It's important to feel good about who is caring for them while you're away.

As a pet owner I truly understand what a difficult decision this can be. For years my husband and I took separate vacations due to a bad experience and a huge lack of trust when it comes to others caring for our "family" members.

Camp Jimmydog offers a healthy, loving, cage free alternative that reduces stress for owners as well as their pets:)

Before opening Camp Jimmydog, I spent several years as professional dog trainer both in Connecticut and in the Tucson area. Helping pets and their owners with obedience as well as behavioral issues.
From recognizing  potential issues before they occur, to sending owners home with new solutions and ideas for issues they may have had no hope of fixing, my training background has proved invaluable.

Though I no longer teach, I am a certified Pet First-Aid & CPR instructor. Teaching the life saving skills and techniques, as well as the preventative measures, that are vital for all pet owners and pet care professionals. 

Your pets are our family while staying with us. My time is devoted to their needs and yours.
Making sure everyone is happy and healthy is what makes up my days. It's not a bad job to have:)

Please look over our website, enjoy the photos (all taken at our home) and, of course, feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns that you may have or to schedule a time to come by and meet us. We look forward to having you in our pack!

You are the find of a lifetime! The pack atmosphere there is so healthy for them.      
  Thank you for all that you have done, you are the miracle home in the desert for dogs..."

Cage-Free Boarding In Our Home-

Our goal is to provide a comfortable, stress free environment where you can feel confident that your dog will be happy and safe while you're away. We limit our boarding to a small number of dogs. This allows for a lot of individual attention and we all still enjoy a relaxed home that everyone can be safe and comfortable in.  

                                      Home away from home.

We are NOT a kennel.
During your pets stay they will be in our home with us and treated as one of the family.

There are numerous comfy dog beds throughout the house and on the porches as well as a room with dog friendly furniture just for them. Our guests enjoy interaction with us throughout the day and relaxing with us at night.  

Camp Jimmydog is located on 4+ acres with over an acre of fenced yard for us and our visitors to enjoy, 
including, our own private dog park for all to enjoy. There are two dog doors, each leading to separate large covered patios and our large safe and secure yard. 

All boarded dogs must be; 
  • Very well socialized and good with other dogs in social situations 
  • Well socialized with people
  • Current on vaccinations (Contact me if you have questions or concerns regarding your dog and vaccinations.)
  • Spayed or neutered (if over 6mos. old)
Please see our FAQ's page for specific requirements and what you'll need to bring.

Everyone is very respectful of each other and we do our part to support you by reinforcing good manners and appropriate behavior and discouraging unwanted behaviors while here. We want them to go home even BETTER that when they left:)

Let us know if you will have email access while away. We are happy to send a "pupdate". A quick hello to let you know that your pet is doing well and some pictures of them playing with new friends or relaxing comfortably.
You are always welcome to call or text to check on your furry friend:)

Cage-Free Boarding (overnight):
$45.00/night per dog (cash only) w/checkout by 11am on last day.  
$20 charge for pick-up after 11am.  
Puppies under 4mos. $50/night. (We love them but they are a lot of work:)
Holidays: There is an additional charge of $5/day for holiday stays.
Marking (in our home) Fee: Occasionally, a dog may not mark in their home environment but when placed in a home with other dogs just can't resist the urge. It's not that they are bad dogs, it's just that they are dogs:)
Dogs that mark indoors during their stay will be charged an additional fee of $5 per day to cover the use of male wraps, additional cleaning, managing, etc.
