Mountain Retreat

Camp Cardinale is a vacation resort for dogs who want lots of love and undivided attention. Our mountain home retreat overlooks Silicon Valley in the Los Gatos hills.

Walks & Swimming

We venture out for daily morning hikes on the hill. In addition to various play areas, we have a swimming pool with adjacent lounge chairs and towel service.

Kennel Free

Each camper will romp and play all day both inside and out. At night, your dog will be a welcome guest, a part of our family and can sleep kennel-free in our home.

Loving Care

Camp Cardinale is focused on providing high-quality service and personalized care for a limited number of lucky dogs. We will give the best loving care to your pets.

Frequent Communication

Whether it’s just for the day or an extended overnight vacation, we will send you photos throughout your dog’s stay enjoying their dog-gone delightful vacation!


Your dog will be nurtured in a one-acre, safe and secure, beautiful, pesticide-free and natural environment that truly allows your dogs to be happy-go-lucky and free.


Camp Cardinale is a member of the Association of Pet Sitting Excellence and Pet Sitters International. We have also completed courses in Pet CPR and First Aid with Pet Tech and the American Red Cross. We are fully insured through Maurer Foster and the Hartford Group.


“After using Camp Cardinale not only do I not worry but I wish I was there! Laure, the camp director, sends me photos of my dog playing and having fun.”

“The absolute best – by a million miles – is Camp Cardinale.  They have a HUGE yard as a play area – and they actually play with the dogs!  And there’s a huge pool and the WONDERFUL Cardinale family. Best ever.
