DO NOT TAKE YOUR DOGS HERE. We boarded our two labs here over July 4th, 2011. There were over 30 dogs at the facility, with one care giver Jan Rosen. One lab came back with a large open wound in her stomach. Jan didn't even know she'd been injured! The vet told us the wound had been there for over 48 hours and was massively infected. Our lab had to have surgery to insert a drain to allow the infection to drain out and, of course, stitched up. My other lab came back INFESTED with ticks. Both dogs are treated for fleas/ticks monthly, so for him to come back infested with ticks tells me that place is crawling with ticks!! This lab underwent a series of blood tests to eliminate the possibility of infection from the ticks. Jan promised to pay the vet bills, but here three months later she has failed to do so. She admitted that the wound was her responsibility, despite the waiver on the boarding contract. She still refuses to pay the vet bills or refund the boarding fees. When I told her I was a lawyer and was planning to sue her for negligence, she told me I was "stupid" and "evil." Apparently, she thinks neglecting dozens of dogs is "God's work." See the picture of my dog's wound that I attached! SPREAD THE WORD AND DO NOT TAKE YOUR BELOVED PETS TO DOGGIE KAMP!

Doggie Kamp is a great place to have your dogs! Jan is a nery nice and hard working person. For those who said its dirty and the dogs are agressive: Jan lives alone with all these dogs that she believes don't deserve to be put in kennels except for when they eat. She has to clean the yard every day, feed all the dogs every day, do adoptions with these dogs, and other house hold things or dog things. And she does this practically by herself. I have three dogs at home and i think its tough to take care of them sometimes, but imagine 30 dogs running around. It is tough work and Jan does an amazing job at doing it. I adopted my dog from Doggie Kamp and she couldn't be a better dog. I take her out there from time to time just to visit with her old friends and she has a great time. Overall Doggie Kamp is a great place for your dogs! Either to board them, to adopt them, or just to have them play with other dogs.

Jan Rosen is one of the most caring people I know and spends every minute of her time and every $$$ has to to save the lives of those in need.. surrendered by their owners, abandoned on the side of the road and set to be euthinized at the shelters. I have transported a number of these dogs for her to DKRR and in each and EVERY case they have been completely vetted, spay/neuter and ALL shots. I have never seen dog poop in the yard nor have I seen bowls strewn across the yard in the many many time I have been there. Too a person who has not been involved in rescue, the large number of dogs would initially appear overwhenlming, but if you spend a bit of time you realize that they all co-habitate amazingly well. To think there isn;t at some point going to be a growl or snarl would be unrealistic, it happens in every home with dog. If you note the negative comments appear to be written by husbands and wives and their comments are unfounded and untrue. Please see for yourself and make your own decision. Why these individuals feel that rescue dogs are "unclean" is very sad to me. Most of these rescue dogs were owned by a family before they came to Jan. Check out the owner surrender rates with your local shelter... they are sickening... and the there is no hold time on an owner surrender. Jan should be commended, not slandered. Shame on you people!

Dogs are allowed to play with each other and have a nice environment both inside and out. Our dogs have always returned cleaner than when we dropped them off, never with a flea or tick and they really enjoy going back. Jan is a pleasant person with lots of knowledge about dogs and their behavior, she works really well with all the pups. It is great to know there are wonderful people out there willing to help all homeless animals, even those with homes.

I am a frequent customer at Doggie Kamp and have ALWAYS found it clean and well-managed. The water bowls and pools are full of sparking water, in fact. Yes, there are a lot of dogs but they generally get along really well, and they get enough exercise that they don't seem to act up like penned dogs do when they are released. I have boarded there for years and I have even adopted from DKRR twice--the best dog rescue group I know of, and I have worked with several.

I would never take my dogs there again. Just pulling up to the place I had a bad feeling. The coniditions are poor at best. I had waited to the last minute to board, so we had no choice.
The place was over crowded with dogs. Old food bowls and nasty water dishes were scattered throughout. It was obvious that dog poo wasn't being picked up daily.
Both of my dogs came back covered with Ticks. I took both to the vet costing me $330. The one had a wound on her stomach. The other had a red eye with puss coming out of it. The vet put both on pills and required me to bring them back 2 months later to run blood work (for the ticks).
I normally don't write reviews but I was so worried that weekend I was gone, and then to get them back allnasty... I just felt aweful, thats why I felt the need to warn others.

My timid, 15 pound miniature schnauzer has always had good experiences here. He has separation anxiety issues, and Doggie Kamp is the only place we've found that he is excited to visit. Although many of the dogs are several times his size, we've never had issues with overly aggressive dogs. Jan clearly knows and loves dogs.

Not the place to take your dog. Will never use this place again. We have had two pets killed from this place. We will be filing a complaint with the county. The person was rude and was not very empathetic what so ever.

Although Doggie Kamp in McKinney is the ideal atmosphere for your canine in theory, you should know that when we visited, we soon discovered that 20-30 of the approximately 50 dogs were rescues. Although it's great the owner will take care of any dog, the behaviors of some of these dogs can be aggressive.

On the Sunday open house visit on 10/14/07, our 70 pound passive dog was bit (two puncture wounds) within 20 minutes by an overly aggressive German Shepard with one ear (a rescue). An apology from the owner with a clear "we are not liable for any injury, you should have known the risk" and $100 vet bill that we paid was the result.

Make sure you read the waiver as well (she was bitten before any document was provided to us) since they clearly state they are not liable for ANY injury. This led us to doubt that she would be properly watched. There were also a couple dog scuffles during our visit. These dogs were not being watched at the time.

The price would have been reasonable, but I would only recommend this place for more aggressive dogs that are quick to fight back, which ours isn't.
