Camp Cypress Dog Retreat

Camp Cypress Dog Retreat is not like any other boarding kennel. Set on 60 acres with wide-open spaces and miles of trails, Camp Cypress is a dog’s paradise and was designed specifically with your dog’s comfort in mind! Located a short distance from Shreveport/Bossier, we offer a stress free, peaceful country setting where your dog will feel safe and happy, returning to you completely relaxed, just like you feel after you come home from a spa retreat. Camp Cypress Dog Retreat owners Jolie and Jim Banks have over 15 years of experience working with and caring for numerous dogs. Many former rescues became a part of their family. Each precious canine they fostered transitioned into a forever home. They have taken all of their experience, joy, and passion for dogs into creating a canine retreat of the highest standards!

I cannot describe how awesome this kennel is. They accepted my slightly aggressive dog and allowed him to run and play! Best kennel ever. The one I have to take him to near home is fine, but he gets very stressed out and cries and coughs when comes home. I wish this kennel or one like it was nearer here if he survives this latest bout of coughing from his stay at another closer Kennel.

First time boarding our dog at Camp Cypress. Was very happy with the results. Prior to boarding we were given a tour of the facilities. Very clean and well managed. Our dog was well taken of, especially since she required daily medication. Received daily pictures of her having fun with her doggy friends in the fenced in backyard. Planning on boarding her again next month…definitely happy with Camp Cypress!

There is no other place I would take my Beaux. They are awesome. I was out of town in Alaska on a cruise and my fur baby got sick and Jolie was amazing she took such good care of Beaux. They always have. I live in Texas and drive two hours to take him there. They are so good to my pup I would drive even further. Thank you Jolie for being so awesome

Wish we knew this place sooner! My dogs love it here, they were so excited coming back the 2nd time. Knowing they had fun playing with other pups, were treated well by the nice staff there makes us feel less guilty cuz we couldn't take them with us when we were out of town. Everyone there is very nice and friendly ❣️

Recently moved to the area and was nervous about boarding my dog - she's my world. But she seemed to enjoy her time at Camp Cypress. I definitely loved receiving the daily photos of her and I felt confident she was being well taken care of while I was away. The staff is very friendly and the boarding process was easy.

Our black lab, Huck, had a fantastic time at Camp Cypress!! He loved playing with the other pups, having the doggy dog so he could play outside plus the scheduled playtime all made for a stimulating stay! We picked up a tired & well cared for pup. The folks at Camp Cypress were all so sweet to Huck, they well documented his routine & the daily pics were an extra touch that our entire family appreciated!

Our German shepherd dog recently stayed a week at Camp Cypress and we are extremely happy with the experience. We received photos daily of Ven playing outside with other dogs. I could tell Ven was having a fun time! We really appreciate the daily photos too, so we can see how our boy is doing while we are away. On his final day, we elected to have him bathed/groomed and he was all fresh, clean and handsome when we picked him up. 😊. This was our first time to use Camp Cypress and we couldn’t be happier with our experience!

I met Jolie before she opened Camp Cypress Dog Retreat. I will always board my dogs there. I know my dogs will always be treated with the utmost care and attention by Jolie and her team. They text me pictures and post pictures to their Facebook page every day. Jolie has worked with dogs for a long time (others and her own) so she knows quite a bit about handling them. CCDR has proven time and time again that my dogs will have the best Camp experience!

Our sweet girl had so much fun at Camp Cypress while we went on vacation. We received daily pictures of her having a blast with the other campers, so we were able to fully enjoy our adventure knowing she was having one of her own! In fact, we were a little concerned she wouldn’t want to come back home😳. She did! 😅.Camp counselors were quick to respond and communicated clearly. Thank you, Camp Cypress. We will plan next vacation knowing our fur baby will be excited to go have her own fun!

My sweet baby has gone for 2 years both daycare and boarding. All i can tell u is it takes me all of 5 seconds to drop her off. She is not normally not a people person but she loves loves loves the care and friends she has here. Previous to coming here I would worry when i went on holiday. I never worry about my fur baby here. I know she is in the best care and having the time of her life.

Camp Cypress is by far the best dog boarding service we've ever used! They treated our girls so well, gave them lots of love and attention, and sent us daily pictures! We will definitely be back and would 100% recommend Camp Cypress to anyone. And their doggie daycare service is great too!

We've never had to board a dog before. We've only had Scout 8 months and he has never been away from us overnight after being rescued from the streets. We were nervous to board him I got a friend's recommendation for Camp Cypress. We were so happy with daily picture updates to let us know how he was doing and when we picked him up, they said he was an absolute sweetheart and he was welcome back anytime.We will definitely be using them again for our vacation needs. They took such great care of him.

We toured the facility a week prior to boarding our babies, and it’s amazing how clean and nice the facility is. I’ve never been in another kennel that had no dog odor, it’s great. We received daily pictures and updates on the babies every day we were gone as they were playing in the nice fenced in play area. The staff here are all very pleasant and professional and show love to every tenant. Thanks to all the staff and we will see you prior to our next vacation.

We love this place! Our 3 dogs stayed here and they weren't kennels they were rooms for the dogs more spacious than their kennels at home. Outside time and daily pics text to keep me from worrying. We will be using them from now on!

Camp Cypress is AMAZING. I was anxious leaving my boy behind for 6 days and I must have texted a hundred times only to be constantly reassured Charlie was just fine. He was treated so well and he had a blast, made so many friends. CCDR was always quick to respond to any questions and concerns I had and I love that they sent daily picture updates. I’d recommend CCDR a hundred times over.

The staff they have there are really nice and polite. The showed us the place and it is really nice place for the dogs to stay at . I'll let you know more about the place when I have to leave town and get back to see if my dogs enjoyed there stay which I'm sure they will cause they love to run around with other dogs that love to play.

I cannot say enough praise for Camp Cypress Dog Retreat. It has been the best experience for us. We have been boarding our senior greyhound with them since we moved to the area over a year ago. The communication is top notch. We get daily photo updates of our girl. I never have to worry how she is, or call and check on her. They check in with us, which gives us peace of mind. I really like their health and safety standards for all boarders. The cost is very affordable too. They also accommodate our girl’s personality and personal space needs. The staff has been so amazing and friendly. We also look forward to the Christmas photos they take while boarding over Christmas.

We’ve been using Camp Cypress for awhile now and they are hands down the best! They truly are dedicated to giving the best care to our fur babies! I love the fact they get multiple playtimes with the other boarders to run & play & not cooped up in a kennel for the majority of the time! I also love the fact they offer bathing for a small fee! Our fur babies adore Jolie, Kristin & the other staff which makes me even more happy! You know when you drive 45 min one way to kennel your babies they have to be AWESOME💯

Our dog Nate loves going to Camp Cypress and always comes home very happy! The staff is very friendly, and we love getting the picture updates from them daily while we are gone. He loves playing with the other dogs and we know he is left in very good hands! We have highly recommended them to many friends and neighbors.

Jolie and Kristen are the best! They are so attentive to my dogs. My sensitive, delicate dog requires extra attention; Jolie even took him to our vet during his last stay to be sure his digestive system was ok. My other high energy very difficult wild child dog has so much fun playing ball with everyone that I’m not sure she wants to come home. They really do care for and love each dog like it is their own fur baby! I know when I am gone I have left my dogs in good hands!

I can't say enough about Camp Cypress. In my own experience due to travel, Covid, and family emergencies I must have changed my pick up date at least 4 times. They went above and beyond to keep my dog with them during all these changes and reassuring me with daily photos of Baxter at play. Best boarding one could imagine!

I’m very late to posting a review since my boyfriend and I boarded our dog in August but I LOVEEEEEEE this place!!!! I seriously recommend it to anyone I know or don’t know. Great staff and great owner. The owner is personable and is good at remembering the names of the dogs. Our dog is very energetic and got to play with other energetic dogs, which I was so happy to see. I was worried that my dog would not fit in because she can be a bit much with her energy but it was great!! Pictures are sent everyday to you. Our family dog is boarded here too. He’s a lot less energetic and fits right in too! They take such great care of the pets. When life calms down, I want to start bringing my dog just to come play for the day. That’s how much I seriously LOVE this place! Overall, TAKE YOUR DOG HERE! They will love it just as much as you!

Absolutely the best daycare and boarding facility in the area! We've taken our 4 dogs there for overnight stays several times and they are always so well taken care of. We especially love the daily picture updates! Our fur babies mean the world to us and we are always weary about leaving them some place new but Camp Cypress took them in like they were their own. Such a wonderful boarding facility!

We have been using CCDR for a few years now. They are the BEST! They always take care of our dachshund mix, Lucy and the best part is they send pictures while you’re away from your fur baby. We couldn’t wait to get our pictures each day while we were away from her. They always go the extra mile to accommodate us and we won’t go to anyone else.

We LOVE Camp Cypress Dog Retreat! Jolie and the entire staff sincerely care about our dog. We can tell by our dog's excitement when we leave her and by her behavior when we pick her up that she LOVES Camp Cypress Dog Retreat as well. It's nice to have the assurance that she is being well cared for in our absence.

I can’t say enough great things about Camp Cypress Dog Retreat. My dog Goose has been to stay twice now. The staff treat her so well, and put our mind at ease with daily updates and pictures while we were away. Jollie and her staff are professional, and truly care about your dog. We will continue to use Camp Cypress when our girl can’t travel with us.

A vacation for my dog! Very impressed with the retreat's facility. The out door area is huge and there is a covered area as well. Very clean and each dog has their own "room". The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. My dog was very well taken care of and had fun playing. I was texted pics daily and both my dog and I left happy. Rates are very reasonable as well and I am more comfortable leaving my dog here then at a normal kennel.

Jolie and Jim are fantastic!! They took great care of our dogs when we went on vacation. I friend of mine told me about Camp Cypress and the great experience they had so we drove 45 minutes one weekend for a tour of their place. We were sold when we saw how clean the place was and that all the dogs just loved them.If you are looking for a boarding kennel I cant recommend them enough, 5 stars just doesn't seem high enough.
