About The Camp
A fun and safe environment for dogs!
Nowadays we let our pets sleep in our bedrooms. We give them free run of our homes. We feed them healthier foods and make sure they are mentally and physically stimulated. We treat them more like family members and less like pets.
As our culture's views concerning pet ownership change, so do our preferences for pet day care and boarding. Kennels, dog runs, and rooms with cages are becoming less desirable options. At Doggie Play Camp we strive to stay on top of this cultural change and offer a better solution.
We provide a pet-safe, home environment for your dogs to play and stay. Here they can socialize with new furry friends, go outside whenever they need to via doggie door, and rest on comfy dog beds or the furniture when they are ready to nap. A human friend is here with them 24/7 so they are always safe, secure, and surrounded by someone who cares about them.
Your dog can expect a full day rich with exercise and attention from our dedicated staff members and filled with socialization and activities which alleviate negative behavior at home due to boredom or lack of exercise. Dogs are supervised closely and good behavior and manners are encouraged with positive reinforcement.

What our patrons have to say!
Doggy Play Camp has excellent facilities and staff. It is well organized and well kept. The owner has several dogs of his own for my dog to socialize with and interact with.
I found Doggie Play Camp at Christmas time when my house sitter cancelled at the last minute. Nyla is part of our family and I was not willing to take her just anywhere. I was on the verge of cancelling our trip. John, Bobbie, and their staff took Nyla in and treated her as part of their family. Their home is welcoming, well-kept and dog friendly. We see John and his dogs at the dog park frequently and Nyla is always to excited to see her doggie friends (and John too!). We have used Doggie Play Camp twice more since our first visit and highly recommend their services!
Defintely Be Back
My "girls" --- Ruby and Daisy --- enjoy a leisurely Bohemian lifestyle in Mid-City Baton Rouge and country weekends in West Feliciana. So, it's been an awful shock when they have had to stay at traditional boarding facilities. They would whine to get of the car when we drove up and their behavior was sometimes off kilter when they first got home. Doggie Play Camp was such a godsend. The home environment is so preferable for me to leave my pups. Also, Ruby has an injury that has left her with some special needs & the staff was so accommodating and attentive to that issue. And, best of all, they seemed to have a great time. We'll definitely be back!
Always Happy to be there
The staff at Doggie Play Camp are very friendly and only want the best for your fury friend while they are visiting! Our puppy Mason gets SO excited every time we pull up to the house and comes home exhausted each time from all the great playing he did! I recommend Doggie Play Camp to anyone that wants only the best for their dog, and would like to leave town knowing that your dog is being taken care of and having the time of their lives! Thank you!
Give Love, Attention and Care
Godiva is my and my husband's only "child." An adopted puppy, she came to us with abandonment issues, so just any sitter where she was kenneled all day would NOT do. When our previous sitter closed, recommendations led me to Bobbie and John. I love the day camp and sleepover style day care and the love and attention my baby gets. She seems to have made good gal friends with Bobbie and definitely gets some energy and "stir crazy" out in her fun-filled days at camp. Its a great relief to know I'm leaving my furry baby with people who will give her love, attention and care.
Loki loves Doggie Play Camp
Loki loves Doggie Play Camp. He starts whining to get out of the car before I even have a chance to park. When he gets out of the car, he runs straight to the door with his tail wagging. He cannot be more excited to get in to see his friends. I feel so good about leaving him somewhere that he enjoys so much. All day, Loki gets all of the attention and activity he needs and at the end of the day, I get to pick up an exhausted puppy.
Love to board our lab
We love to board our lab, Jack, with John and Bobbie at Doggie Play Camp. Most important to us is that he gets to run and play and is not confined to a kennel like at your usual boarding facilities. All of the staff are friendly and helpful, very accommodating, and the homey environment clean and very dog-friendly. We feel comfortable leaving him in their capable hands because we know he's being well taken care of and loved, just like when he's at home. Hours of service and convenient location are also added bonus for us. Can't say enough good things about them and highly recommend you check them out!!
Gumbo looks forward to Doggie Play Camp
My dog Gumbo just loves going to Doggie Play Camp. He is very active and needs lots of exercise so a traditional kennel would not be good for him, and I've never boarded him at a kennel. I thought at first that this would be much more expensive than a kennel because they spend so much more time with the dogs, but it's not. Very reasonably priced. Our dog looks forward to us going out of town so he can go play with his other pack of friends.
