Canine Camp Getaway


Spring is in full bloom and summer is right around the corner. It is now time to start planning our vacations. Our goal is to find pet friendly locations where a vacation can be enjoyed by both canines, felines and humans and share them with you.

Do you love spending time with your dog? Does a vacation in the beautiful Adirondack mountains surrounded by dogs and dog lovers sound like your idea of a fun? If this describes you then we would like to fill you in on a vacation at Canine Camp Getaway of NY. It is definitely not for everyone but honestly it is hard to resist for the true dog lover.

This is a once a year opportunity so set June 24-28, 2012 to visit the Roaring Brook Ranch in Lake George, NY. Your dogs are welcome everywhere from the swimming pool to the bar at Yappy Hour?

Canine Camp Getaway of NY was created for dogs and dog lovers and is the ultimate dog-friendly vacation. With nearly 300 acres, the resort offers a scenic paradise where each camp is filled with a host of fun-filled activities for dogs and their human companions. Dogs of all sizes, ages and abilities are welcome however they do need to be social with other dogs and humans.

There is a plethora of activities to entertain and education any furry buddy. It doesn’t matter if your dog is young or old, high energy or a happy couch potato, an experienced athlete or a total novice, there are plenty of activities for them to enjoy. Instruction is provided for dogs of all skill levels, ages and abilities. Dogs can try their paw at a wide variety of dog sports, like frisbee, flyball, doggie skateboarding and dancing with dogs. You can also take it easy and hang out together by (or in) the pool.

Activities for the human guests are equally impressive. You will be able to get a doggy fitness evaluation, join an obedience class, get introduced to dog training, attend the scent detection workshop or seminars by veterinarians, trainers, behavior experts and dog nutrition pros. If you would like to learn canine cpr, that is also available.

On the leisure side you can go horseback riding, take zumba classes, country line dance or sing karaoke. After a fun filled day you can enjoy some nighttime entertainment in the bar/lounge (with a special dog-friendly section of the dining room). The neighboring town offers golfing, boating, outlet shopping, antiquing and more. For those who want a little private human time, the facility offers an onsite spa, a sauna and an exercise room.

You will enjoy all the comforts of home with clean and comfortable rooms, including air conditioning, private baths, cable TV, telephones and wireless Internet spots on the premises. Three meals per day are included, with a generous breakfast that includes both hot and cold choices, a casual lunch and gourmet dinners, all with full wait service. The amazing backdrop of the Adirondack Mountains and the wide open space for recharging body, mind and spirit while strengthening the bond with your four-legged best friend is hard to beat! This resort vacation truly offers something for everyone!

About Author

Devoted pet owner and now, devoted pet editor, Judi worked in traditional offices, keeping the books and the day-to-day operations organized. Taking her dog to work every day for over a decade never seemed odd. Neither did having an office cat. She knows what it's like to train a new puppy and she's experienced the heartache of losing beloved companions. Retired, she currently lives with her spoiled dog and four chickens (who are, interestingly enough, also spoiled).


  1. Oh I wish I could take my girl there now, she seems bored 🙂 I should probably put this on our “to do” list! Are there any limitations breed wise?

  2. Hi Brankica–

    We do not have breed limitations, as we know many wonderful dogs of every breed! Because this is an extremely social environment, dogs must be friendly with people and other dogs in order to attend, but welcome all friendly dogs and humans! (And trust me, with five activities going on at any given time during the day, plus an awesome dog-friendly pool, your dog will NEVER be bored at Canine Camp Getaway of NY!)

  3. This is a great camp, we went last year and going again this year! The dogs are welcome everywhere, it was so great to see all the dogs sitting in the dining room, an absolute must do with your dog.

  4. It was exciting to locate your site yesterday. I came here hoping to learn something new. And I was not dissatisfied. Thank you for sharing.

  5. Our pets deserve a simple treat like this, making our cute pets a part of our lives and spending time with them during vacation. It’s a good thing there are still places and vacation spots where they allowed to have pets in the vicinity. I surely agree that when planning a vacation or a trip, let’s not deprive the fun it will cause to our pets if we bring them along.
