Business of the Week: Cavendish Canine Camp


Business of the Week

46 Winery Rd., Proctorsville, Vt. 05153




Debra and David Norton have owned and operated Cavendish Canine Camp for 13 ½ years. “For years and years I had wanted to open a dog kennel – either everything was way too expensive or wasn’t quite the right spot,” said Debra Norton. “Then I saw this piece of land, we could afford it” … and the rest was history.Business of the Week

Norton said she was mentored by Nancee Schaffner, former owner of Wundrland Pet Lodge in North Clarendon.

Cavendish Canine Camp offers boarding, exercise yards, indoor-outdoor kennels, and day care. There are 20 indoor-outdoor runs, modern bathing and drying equipment, and a cat room. “I love taking care of cats, we can take up to five at a time,” Norton said. She grows catnip in summer for the cats and send it home with them. The facility averages 25-40 dogs per day between boarding and day care.

The business offers site visits, Monday-Friday, 3-4 p.m.

Hours for daytime pickup and drop-off are 7:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. on weekdays and 8 a.m.-5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

Reservations are required, as are up-to-date rabies/distemper/bordetella shots.

Cavendish Canine Camp is located 3 mi. south of Ludlow village, on 103 before the junction with Rte 131.Business of the Week
