Important announcement

Both locations are currently taking new customers. We would love for your pup to become a happy camper! Please fill out our questionnaire and we will contact you as soon as we receive it. For current clients to stay in our system, they must bring their pup at least once per 60 days or they will be considered inactive. Any inactive pups will have to re-do their temperament test.

Why choose US

Superior Services

We always provide superior care and supervision for your pup. Our 24/7 staff provides the best overnight care in town, our daycare seperates dogs by size or temperament, and our dog wash services have premium shampoo’s, conditioners and deodorizers.

Built For Pups

The Pup Camp was built from the ground up to provide the best experience a dog can have while also giving back to their community. We have multiple spacious play rooms, full climate controlled airflow, indoor and outdoor play areas, and supervision staff 100% of the time.


The Pup Camp has experience like no other. We are trained, family owned, and passionate about superior dog care. Owner Matthew Stewart has helped thousands of dogs over the past decade in Anne Arundel County and provided top-notch care while being highly respected.


The Pup Camp promises to provide 100% honest transparency while providing the most safe, comfortable, and clean facility for the pups. We are here to make dogs lives happier, healthier, and provide them with proper socialization and play in the safest setting possible.

The Pup Camp now has two locations, Severna Park, MD and Gambrills, MD. Choose your nearest location below.

Dog daycare

Doggie daycare is the center of what we do. Our facilities have been built out from the ground up to provide the best doggie daycare experience.

Just like a children’s daycare we provide constant supervision, socialization, and safe play whether inside in our climate-controlled rooms, or our outside play yards that have k9 artificial turf to provide the cleanest and most safe environments for dogs. We always have multiple rooms where we separate dogs by size or temperament as well. Whether you have a 175 lbs Mastiff or a 5 lbs Yorkie, your dog will be put in the right environment and play-group that is best suited for your dog.

All doggie daycare has 100% supervision in each room at all times (we even have an extra person available in case someone needs to use the restroom – that’s how much we focus on 100% supervision), so you can feel peace of mind while your dog is in our care for daycare.

Dog Boarding

Let your dog play while you’re away! Our dog boarding services will provide report cards at the end of your stay, supervised staff, full monitoring of feeding statuses and medications, full days of daycare during the day included, and other fun activities! Our boarding always provides on location staff 24 hours per day as well, so your dog will always be looked after with the best care possible when you’re away and your dog is in our care.
