"This was the second year Chester the Wonder Pup and I attended YDS and we are sure to go in 2015! The staff was welcoming and made sure that all of the campers needs were met. There are so many things going on concurrently that some days it was hard to decide what to do.  I cannot think of any better way to spend my vacation than with my dog and other dogs and people." -- Maureen from CO (2013, 2014)
