Is your dog overweight or out of shape?  Send them to Health Camp!  We will design a fitness program specially geared to getting your dog on the road to a healthy weight and in shape. This will include a veterinarian evaluation, special diet, exercise and client consultation.  The exercise program designed for your dog will be based on your dog's condition and abilities and may include swimming, hiking, and other outdoor activities.  They will be fed a special diet which is high in fiber even when they just sign up for day camp.  Inquire today about getting started.
