Toby’s K-9 Kamp began their story with a sweet beagle named Molly. Founder John would bring his two Shelties, Toby and Baby, to join Molly. Once these play dates started word began to spread and 5 dogs became 10, then 20, then 30. Toby’s relocated to their current location in October 2013 which allowed them to open a full-service grooming salon and offer training classes with a Certified Professional Dog Trainer.
John McManus decided in 2006 at the age of 55 that he was done with the corporate world. Wanting to do something that would allow him to be with his dogs, he researched pet-related businesses. When told about doggy daycare, he visited a few in the area and decided that this was it. A long location search and zoning process resulted in the opening of Toby’s K-9 Kamp in December 2007. John has three dogs, Toby, Baby, and Buddy. He has fostered several dogs and found them good homes and works closely with the SPCA and several area rescue groups to help find homes for dogs in need.
