My dog has been going to Camp Diggity a couple days a week for the last 2 years. It's the highlight of his day--he gets to play outside, swim in the pool and chase balls ALL day! They will even give him a bath before you pick up! The staff is friendly and love the dogs!!!

We recently boarded our dogs here and were really happy and impressed. It's without a doubt the best place around for dogs. I read a bad review of it, and I'm shocked...I wonder if it's just kids who have nothing better to do, or I guess there's competition in the area that may have written some bad things, or people who want to take out a bad day on someone. I noticed that some places have no negative reviews, and I always wondered why, until a company offered me money to take my review down! So if there's places with all good reviews, it's likely they just offer money back to keep the reviews positive. Basically you can't tell much of anything from reading reviews, and you should just check it out for yourself. I'm sure you'll be really happy, just as my wife and I were with the boarding facilities at Camp Diggity Dogs. We'll definitely be back. We were really happy to know that our dog had a good week while we were gone, and we saw him playing with all his little new friends. We like the fact that someone stays in the lobby all night, as well. There were about 30 other dogs there when we were there, divided into 2 areas for the big and small, and our little guy was playing with a poodle and what I guess was a Miniature Pinscher. They all seemed to be having so much fun.

Camp Diggity Dog is fabulous! Whats not to love about it? Huge outdoor area, huge rooms, webcams, swimming pools, people to play with, bathing (got to try the eqyss shampoo!!!), pickups from you house, other dogs to play with, early drops and late picks for free, cage-free boarding when you need it...and the price is so much lower than other places I checked. When I met the staff they were super nice and obviously loved my dog. Then again, that's easy to do! But they were really helpful too and were willing to meet any request I made. I met the owner the 2nd time I came in, and he not only obviously loves dogs, but was super knowlegeable about them. Once when I needed a bath, but forgot to ask for one, they ran back and did it while I waited. They even did his nails. I was really happy to have him cleaned and not have to worry about it after a long day at work. I bring him for daycare now a couple times a week, and he always loves it and comes home good and tired. Makes it easy when you've got a million other things to worry about after work. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

My dog Charlie LOVES Camp Diggity Dogs. He has so much fun when he goes. He loves the staff and all his friends there. They take great care of him. As soon as I tell him hes going to camp he starts jumping up and down. I really like how nice everyone is and how much they love dogs. The place is really nice too. He did get a little scrape on his leg once, and they cleaned him up and called me to tell me what happened and that he was just fine. It made me really happy to know he was in great hands. We're going to Camp tomorrow!

*** I wish there was a NO STAR rating ** Our dog was recently killed by another dog while staying here overnight. He was a six pound dog left unattended (and unwatched) overnight with 20-30 lb dogs. This complete lack of supervision is NOT how their services were described to us, and it is clearly unacceptable for this to have happened. I would STRONGLY recommend finding somewhere safer to board your dog so that you have a wagging tail and warm lick to come home to next time you travel away.

We have taken our dog to this daycare several times and I can't lie: he loves it (hence the couple stars). We say "puppy camp" and he freaks out. He scratches the door when we get there! BUT, when he's there any more than a couple days, he comes back sick (as a dog, pardon the expression) every time. He sleeps for a week, is completely listless, has red, dischargey eyes, once he even shivered for a day or two and was total dead-weight! This last time we took him for only 4 days, he came back choking and gagging (even in the lobby when we picked him up!). He hadn't eaten a bite of his food the entire time. I'd reckon he didn't sleep either. And it took us a day to realize/admit he had contracted Kennel Cough. He was sick and congested and isolated from other dogs (which he loves!) for at least 2 weeks. I was disgusted that we spent $150 to get him so sick!! I confess, I am heartbroken because he loved it there, but we will not be going back. Maybe he just has a bad immune system, but I think our dog needs a more well-monitored facility.

My dog Lulu LOVES Camp Diggity Dogs. She plays non-stop all day. In addition to it being the largest one around, and really convenient for me, they never charge late fees. They also have a way you can pick your dog up after hours and drop off before they even open in the morning. And if you have to, or if you're going out of town for the weekend, you can leave your dog overnight. It's great that Lulu doesn't have to get used to a different place when I need to board her. She already knows where she's going and loves it there, so I never worry about leaving her overnight. And they never put your dog in a cage, which I would hate to have to do. It's about time we had a place with everything they offer!

We love Camp Diggity. Both for boarding and daycare. It's great that they have the daycare early dropoff and late pickup options, as I often get stuck in meetings or have to work late. Best facility I've seen. No one else has a dog park connected to a huge indoor living room.

I've taken my dog to Camp Diggity Dogs for nearly 9 months now...used both their boarding and day care services. I've had nothing but GREAT results. My dog comes how tired, happy, and clean. Not once has she ever had a flea on her, and he hair (being a maltese mix) is pretty long. The staff is excellent, the facility is really nice, and the extras are huge. We highly recommend them!

I worked for Camp Diggity Dogs until just recently, and we never had a problem with any dogs getting fleas. They do flea checks on EVERY single dog that comes in and we do a flea bath on any dog with fleas. I've never seen a flea on any dog except a few when they 1st came in, which we bathed immediately. And we never had complaints from any customers that they got fleas there. And that's out of THOUSANDS of dogs that have come through. I don't think anyone should have anything to worry about. The place is kept very clean, sprayed with sanitizing chemicals, water bowls bleached, etc. I never saw anything but happy customers and VERY happy dogs.

My dog gets fleas every time she stays here. The price is good, but the facility is dirty and not worth the hassle of dealing with fleas every time I pick my dog up. My dog needs special care and it doesn't appear that she gets that here. Something happened over the last 6 months and this facility went from great to fair. It's unfortunate that you lost a great customer.

I did a very thorough search of all the doggie daycares around san diego, and Camp Diggity Dogs was by far the best. If you try to get a tour of other ones, you see they either won't let you see where your dog will be or the dogs are crowded into an area, and they have very little if any outdoor space. I don't want my dog being forced to urinate indoors all day, or so crowded fights will break out. Camp Diggity Dogs has a huge outdoor area with trees and a pool, and the dogs can go inside anytime they like. And they play all day, not for just a couple hours and then have to sit in a cage all day. The staff is great and will really look out for your dog. Camp Diggity Dogs is beautiful and very clean. I highly recommend them.

Camp Diggity Dogs has awesome staff. They'll do whatever your dog needs, including lunch, meds, suntan lotion...anything! They totally go the extra mile for you and your dog. They also have a superb facility with both large indoor and outdoor areas. It's basically a dog park, but with an area to go inside to take a nap or get out of the heat whenever they want. The place is very clean and nice. I actually have a hard time believing the negative comments on here...either they are competitors or they have some serious negativity issue. Who knows, maybe they're written by fired employees. My dog and my friend's (who referred me to them) both love it and have never had a problem in over a year.

My 17lb rat terrier Simon has been a patron at 5 different doggie daycares over the course of his 8 years and I've discovered there are 2 kinds of facilities that exist: those that were started by people who are completely in love with canines and want to immerse their lives in them, and those started by people who are tired of their 9-5's and looking for a small investment, low-overhead, service-industry business for their personal gain. Camp Diggity Dog is definitely one of the latter. If you're looking for the cheapest deal - Camp Diggity Dog's for you. However, if you're searching for a quality environment for your dog that your hectic schedule does not allow you provide yourself - I urge you to look elsewhere. Simon will never be returning to Camp Diggity Dog.

Camp Diggity is our basset's favorite place in town. He loves it there! The staff is really friendly and cares for our dog as if he were their own. The socialization your dog will get at Camp Diggity is priceless! I highly recommend them.
