Camp Gone To The Dogs
Camp Gone To The Dogs is a celebration of dogs and all the ways they bring joy into our lives.
About Our Company
Camp Gone to the Dogs was founded 19 years ago in Putney, Vermont. The purpose of the Camp is to provide a vacation for dog lovers and their dogs. Dogs of any age are welcome. They have had puppies as young as 10 weeks and dogs as old as 17 years. If you hate to take a vacation without your dog Camp Gone to the Dogs is for you. Jeanne Richter is the Director of Camp Gone to the Dogs. She lives in NJ with her husband and two Polish Lowland Sheepdogs Zorro and Zeta. She has been a dog lover since she was a young child. This is her third career and definitely her favorite. Jeanne is the first to state how lucky she is to love her job. The Camp’s guiding principles are kindness, fairness and love. They only use positive training methods— treats, toys, play and petting. If it's not fun for your dog, they won't do it.

Will There Be Instructors To Train My Dog?
Absolutely! Our camp's instructors are not just "on" the cutting edge; they are the cutting edge. If there's a way to make it enjoyable for dogs to learn, they'll find it.
