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 walks. 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 weekend 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 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.


“I am so grateful for the excellent care and environment at Camp Cardinale; I was able to enjoy being away without worrying about my pup. Thank you Laure and Vince!

“It is hard to put into words how fantastic Laure and Vince’s place is. I am a high maintenance dog owner and my big lab Max loves it there and I have left him for 3 weeks at a time and know he will be well cared for! Recently I was out of the country and Max stayed there and developed a medical issue… Laure alerted me, coordinated with the vets… and then took Max to Santa Cruz to my vet which is a 45 minute drive from camp… which all in all was a 4 hr outing! It’s super important to me that Max feels comfortable but his health and safety are top priority and Camp Cardinale really fits the bill. If you want your dog to have the best time ever and be safe and well cared for then this is the place.
