About Capree

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
NOTE: Cuddle Camp will be unavailable for boarding for the month of December. See you in 2017!

Welcome to your home away from home, Cuddle Campers! Located in inner SE Portland, SpacePig's Cuddle Camp is a belly-rubbing, ball-chasing, dog-napping paradise. We are lifelong dog lovers and welcome adult dogs of all shapes and sizes into our calm, securely-fenced, dog-friendly home.

Our three resident dogs, Wrigley, Smash (aka "SpacePig"), and Drogo are relaxed, friendly, and ready to greet you with open paws! Wrigley and Drogo are always up for some playtime or a good cuddle session, whichever you prefer. Smash is a quintessential couch potato dog and loves nothing more than to curl up for a nice, long nap with a buddy.

At Cuddle Camp, you can expect to get lots of one-on-one attention (our Camp Mom works from home!), playtime in our large backyard, neighborhood walks, and access to as many toys as your little puppy heart desires!

Good to know:

BOARDING:

Except for occasional holidays, your dog(s) will be the only boarding guests at any one time. We accept up to 3 dogs from the same family! If you'd like to book a reservation for more than 1 pup, let us know and we'll send you a custom quote.

DAYCARE:

• 0-4 hours is $15

• 8+ hours is an additional $2.50/hour

Note: Daycare is offered on an as-needed basis, for those who just need occasional daycare. We are not able to accommodate dogs who need daycare on a regular, set schedule.

DROP-OFF/PICK-UP:

• Generally, drop-off and pick-up times are between 9am - 8pm.

• If you need to drop your pup off earlier or pick them up later, let me know and we can make arrangements on a case-by-case basis.

We will send your human photos via text or email!

Capree was fantastic! She was very responsive and flexible with my drop off/pick up times. My little dog came home nice and tired from having so much fun! I will recommend Capree to my friends and will definitely be having her watch my pup again. Thanks Capree!

My dogs had a wonderful stay and received lots of TLC. Fabulous experience!!
We are from MN and drove to Portland for my brother's wedding. We didn't have a lot of options for family to watch our dog Berkley while we attended the wedding so we decided to try dog vaycay. Capree was amazing to work with. We definitely plan to utilize her services again in the future while traveling with our fur baby!

Capree is amazing! She kept us updated with photos and reports on how our little fur baby was doing. It was a great experience. We hope to use Capree again!
Capree is absolutely amazing and I could not have asked for a better Portland Dogvacay experience! Just moved from Eugene and loved my sitter there, so I was anxious that I wouldn't be able to find someone like them. Thank goodness we did :) Rufus had such a great time playing with Caprees dogs and in her gorgeous yard. He looked really sad when I took him away from her. Thank you! Can't wait to have him stay again

So glad we found Capree! She took great care of our little terrier while we were out of town and we will definitely use her again!
I'm a repeat client of Capree, always feel great leaving Saul with her!
Such a positive experience. I travel a lot for work and now I can leave knowing that Saul might be having even more fun than I could give him at our place :)
Capree is the best!
Capree and her three pups, Smash, Drogo and Wrigley were amazing company to Holmes. Pictures and videos of Holmes playing with the Cuddle Camp Crew were sent everyday, which reassured me that Holmes was in the right hands (and paws). I would recommend Capree to anyone with a dog and would book my next Dogvacay with her again. Thanks guys!

Regular photo updates and texts reassured us that our dog was having fun and in a safe place. Our dog came back content and tired from the weekend of play with Capree's own happy group of dogs.
Another fantastic time for Cookie. Thank you Capree and all the doggie friends at Camp SpacePig!
Capree has watched Max for us on several occasions and he has come home a happy dog each time. She sends pictures and updates which I absolutely love. What drew me to Capree initially is that she only watches small dogs and a maximum of six at a time. Our Shih Tzu Max particularly loves the extra love and lap time. I highly recommend Capree to those with small pups!

Everything perfect as usual! My babies just had a great time at Capree's place =)
Capree was wonderful, flexible and updated me throughout my dogs stay with photos and videos! My dog had an absolute blast and was happily dog tired when he got home. I will definitely use her again in the future!
Capree was awesome as usual! My senior dog, Smokey, had a blast with her and her squad! =) Thanks again Capree.
Capree is a wonderful person and I whole heartedly recommend her without any hesitation. She is also a very good communicator which is important when you have to leave part of your family behind. We never leave our golden and she did a great job of easing my fears and sending constant updates, pictures and photos. She gave us the gift of a wonderful vacation because I had no doubt that Barley was loved, happy and well cared for.

Capree is awesome! We just left our very crazy Weimaraner, Gilley, with her for the third or fourth time. She sends photos every day and it is so obvious that our puppy is having a great time. Gilley get plenty of walks but I honestly think she likes hanging out with the other dogs at the house just as much! When I picked her up today, as excited as she was to see me, she was not sure she wanted to leave Capree. We highly recommend her.

Teddy had an amazing time at cuddle camp. He's not very comfortable with some day care places he's been to but Capree was really patient and understanding. He'll definitely be staying there frequently in the future.
My dog had a great time with Capree and she sent me some nice photo updates. I could tell he was in good hands. Highly recommend.
This was our first time leaving our baby with someone else for that long, and Capree was a perfect host. She let us very secure and comfortable, and sent us a lot of pictures and videos everyday. When I got to Capree's house to pick up our Francisca, our pup, she didn't even get excited to see me (it was sad for me, but it also meant that she had a good time).I'll definitely contact Capree again when I need.

My dog Stanley is just a puppy, and as a rescue, he is cautious and nervous around new people. In anticipation of a three day trip out of town, we eased Stanley into being comfortable at Capree's by dropping him off for just a few hours at first, then gradually increasing to full days. Now I'm planning my second trip out of town. Capree and her husband are patient, friendly, and above all, engaged and interested in helping Stanley become a confident, calm canine citizen. I think of Stanley's time at Capree's as training experiences. I'm working with a trainer one-on-one as well, and Capree is "on the same page" with me in terms of training methods (counter conditioning and positive reinforcement). I know that when Stanley is with Capree, he is in good hands.

Another great stay for our frenchie Lula. This was her 2nd time going to Capree's. When we started up the driveway and she realized where we were, she started PULLING LIKE CRAZY to get into Capree's backyard. She was so excited!
I always feel so at ease when my two dogs are at the Cuddle Camp. I love the photos and updates I get while I'm away. SpacePig's Cuddle Camp is the best!!!
My husband and I recently planned a 4 day/3 night trip to Vegas, but were very worried about leaving our three fur babies with anyone, since they've never been anywhere without us, and we didn't want them kenneled, period! The whole process with DogVacay and Capree turned out to be a godsend! After exchanging introductory emails and providing history and information, we took our girls (1 Chiweenie and 2 Chihuahuas) for a meet and greet with Capree at her home. After meeting with Capree and seeing our dogs in that environment we felt it was a good fit. It came time for our trip and the worrying started up again, lol, but Capree sent us reassuring pictures and videos throughout our time away, so we knew the girls were being well cared for, and even enjoying themselves. What a welcome relief! We would definitely recommend Space Pig's Cuddle Camp! Capree is wonderful, and you can rest assured your fur babies will have a great time in her care!

Our crazy Weimaraner puppy had another great stay with Capree. She LOVES it there and we never worry for a minute because Capree send lots of photos and updates the whole time. We feel really lucky we found such a great place where we know she is safe and has such a great time!

It was our first time using Dog Vacay, and our french bulldog puppy Lula (10 months old) couldn't have been happier we chose Capree, her pups, and her yard! Lula can sometimes get a little too hyperactive and annoy older dogs, but when we went for our meet and greet, everyone got along fantastically. Capree ended up caring for a few other smaller dogs (including a 3-month-old Boxer puppy) at the same time which Lula bonded with so much, she was sad to leave them! We got lots of pictures and a couple videos of the dogs having a blast romping around in the yard together; it makes it a lot easier to go on vacation feeling like your pup is having the time of her life. We will definitely choose Capree again!

My dogs LOVE staying at SpacePig's Cuddle Camp! I am always excited when I get photos while I'm away. My dogs always look like they are relaxed and having a great time! I HIGHLY recommend the Cuddle Camp!
Capree was amazing with our puppy, Tesla Grace. We received many photo and video updates of Tesla's adventures during the course of the weekend and she was so happy she didn't want to leave. She will definitely be back to SpacePig's Cuddle Camp!
Capree, her husband and her dogs were absolutely amazing with our puppy. She sent lots of photos and stayed in touch the whole time. It was our first time to leave our puppy with anyone and we did not worry for a minute. Our dog had some issues and Capree was calm and incredibly competent in dealing with the situation. We are sure she had a good time since she wanted to go back in Capree's house when we picked her up and we were ready to leave!! She will be going back for sure!!

Our dog, Cookie, had a most excellent time during her 3 day/2 night stay with Capree. We received wonderful daily photos of our happy dog and we will definitely use Capree for future dog watching adventures.
I'm so grateful to have had Capree watch Amby during the long holiday weekend. Amby's baseline regimen is somewhat complex, but this stay involved addressing firework anxiety as well as care for a preexisting injury, and Capree handled everything like an absolute professional. Temperatures were also exceptionally high and Capree made sure Amby was safe and comfortable at all times. Additionally, she takes charming photographs & I always looked forward to her numerous updates on my fuzzy buddy, Wrigley, Smash, and other dog guests.

So pleased with our day care experience yesterday -- I really appreciate how much Capree is around, and how patient & gentle she is with the dogs. I'm really looking forward to having her watch Amby for a trip we have coming up.
Capree is the best host! My dogs are so happy as soon as they get in her wonderful back yard. I should say that she's terrible because I don't want her to get booked up! I would give her ten stars if I could.
I feel so lucky that Mac and I found Capree. She was our first experience with Dog Vacay, and boy what a perfect ambassador she is for the company. My dog Mac loved going to her house and playing in her great yard and with her pups. I could tell Mac loved being there, and it was clear that Capree loved having Mac. I felt so confident that he was in safe and loving hands. She also was so flexible with my crazy hours which was so appreciated. Unfortunately, I'm an actor on tour and only got to use Capree for a short time. Wish she could sit for us always. If we are ever in Portland again we will definitely call Capree!!!

Capree is the best! Our pup Deva is extremely shy around strangers but now loves to go to Capree's. I would especially recommend Capree to any dog with anxiety issues. We have had a difficult time finding boarding for Deva because of her issues but I feel that Deva and Capree had an instant connection. She and her dogs can make any anxious pup feel at ease. I now have peace of mind that I can leave Deva somewhere that she can be comfortable and taken care of.

We're so happy to have found Capree to take care of our 18-month old labradoodle, Max. Max was at ease with her and her dogs and they were all so welcoming. We will definitely be using Capree to take care of our pup for future needs.

Highly recommend.

I'm pretty sure Spencer had a great time at Capree's house. When I left him, he was running around the yard with the other dogs having a blast. Capree sent me a few photos and updates while she was watching Spencer, he looked happy as can be laying in the sun with his favorite ball. Highly recommend Capree and Spencer looks forward to his next visit :-)

Our dog Charlotte spent a week with Capree and seemed very relaxed and happy during her stay. We got regular updates during the week, which was nice, and Capree was flexible and accommodating regarding drop-off and pickup times.
Capree is awesome: friendly and accommodating and a real dog lover. My dogs love her. She sends cute pics and videos all day. Her home is lovely and clean and - here's a first with dog sitting experiences - my dogs come home smelling good! In short: hire her.

Capree is very sweet natured and has an obvious love of dogs. I was immediately comfortable leaving Moritmer with her. Mortimer quickly became friends with her two adorable dogs and he seemed very pleased when I picked him up. I will definitely be reserving time with Capree in the future!

Capree is wonderful! My pup has been sick so she's been watching him during the day while I'm at work. She responds really quickly and is taking such good care of my guy. Since my dog was sick and I was being such a worried mom she also sent me pictures throughout the day so I could see how he was doing.

She is such a good choice for dog care and I'll be bring my pup to her a lot more.
