Finally, a boarding kennel in the Shreveport, Bossier City, Benton area were your dog Will Feel Loved, Happy and Safe while you’re away

Your dog isn’t just a pet — they’re a valued member of your family.

When you need safe spot for them to stay while you’re away, you want them to feel right at home. And that’s what Camp Cypress Dog Retreat is — a home away from home.

Camp Cypress Owner and CEO Jolie Banks is a lifelong lover of dogs. For over 15 years she has been active in rescuing, fostering and adopting dogs – as well as caring for her own furry friends since she was a child.

Being a loving dog owner herself, she felt there was a void in the dog boarding world. Most kennels around seemed too stark and unwelcoming – like a prison.

“Every dog I have ever had has taught me something. To me, dogs are more than just a pet – they really are our family members. As a dog owner, I know the value of having a great place to leave my dogs when I have to be away. I wanted to create a place where I would feel comfortable leaving my best friend, and others would too.”

Don’t you think your dog deserves a fantastic place to stay while you’re away?
A place where they can feel relaxed, happy, and like they’re on vacation too?

Of course you do!

Just like you, Jolie wanted a place where her dog could feel happy, healthy and loved while she was away. Somewhere that felt just like home – this is how Camp Cypress was born.

Unlike most modern boarding kennels, Camp Cypress is a place where your dog feels like part of our family. Here, alongside her animal-loving husband Jim, they offer a safe, fun place for your furry friend to roam, play and feel loved while you’re away.

Located on 60 acres of land, Camp Cypress Dog Retreat is a cage-free, peaceful haven where your little camper can experience all the fun of being a dog. This cageless oasis provides a clean and friendly environment with a highly experienced and compassionate team to feed, play with and make your dog feel safe and loved.

Does this sound like a place your dog would be excited to stay?

Not only will your furry friend enjoy plenty of supervised playtime with other happy campers, but we will keep you updated with daily photos to put your mind at ease.

“My promise to you is to make Camp Cypress a place that I would feel comfortable leaving my own dogs, and to care for your dogs like they are my own!”– Jolie
