About Stoney Run Canine Camp
Acquired in 2018 by Susan Maravilla-Kujawski and Kimberly Berryman, Stoney Run Canine Camp features 20 grassy acres of fully-fenced property located in Hebron, Indiana. It provides quality dog boarding, grooming, day care, and training services.
Since buying the property, many improvements have been made, inside and out. Natural gas has replaced propane, and dated electric heating and cooling appliances have been replaced by efficient HVAC systems with air scrubbers. Security cameras and fire alert systems have been installed. Cement floors have been replaced with hygienic, easier-to-keep-clean and germ-free epoxy. Three outdoor play yards have been added for a total of four surrounding the lodging area. The sleeping areas all have new walls, doors, and lighting, for a total of 32 suites and 5 luxury suites each of which has indoor/outdoor access which then leads out to one of the play yards. A 2,000 SF area was remodeled, adding flexible space usable as either an additional training arena or indoor play space during inclement weather. A 9,000 SF climate-controlled Training Center was built from the ground up. Half of the Training Center features mat flooring for classes and Day School, and the other half is turfed for an agility ring. In 2020, a 45’ regulation Dock Diving Pool was installed and the original barn was remodeled and 4 acres were fenced in to become home to two resident horses, Willow & Oakley, and two goats. Popcorn & Pistachio.
A new office/lobby was completed at the end of 2021 for ease of check-in. And also in 2021, we launched a mobile app to provide our clients with easy access to our programs and activities, schedules, and to facilitate booking appointments.
Continued staff training across all departments, combined with all of the improvements to the property, create a safe and welcoming place for your dog to come and stay with us. Families will find new and positive ways to build bonds of trust through training at SRCC. Our goal is to help pet families utilize the sports that performance families compete in, in a safe and inviting atmosphere. Adding sports into your world with your dog will not only be fun, it could be what keeps an unmanageable dog in a home rather than sending it to a shelter.
We are located at 463 South County Line Rd in Hebron, Indiana. Call 219-996-DOGS (3647) to schedule your dog’s first visit with us.
Susan Maravilla-Kujawski and Kimberly Berryman
While studying pre-veterinary medicine in college, Sue had jobs working for veterinarians, gaining practical experience with both large and small animals. She earned a BS in Science with an emphasis in Biology and Chemistry and worked as a chemist for 11 years. The acquisition and creation of Stoney Run Canine Camp has fulfilled a lifelong dream for Sue, who brings a unique combination of business skills and medical knowledge of dogs to this business. Her passion for working with and caring for animals has been a constant thread throughout her life and while she has had many dogs over the course of her life, for the past 25 years the ones that filled her home as her children were growing up were, and still are, English Bulldogs, which make great family pets. During her time volunteering at the rescue with Kim, Sue adopted Dudley, a Shepherd/Rottweiler mix, bringing the women together and seeding the ideas that would grow into Stoney Run Canine Camp. Sue has made a home with her husband in Crown Point for the past 30 years. They have 3 animal-loving, adult children, 1 living in California, 1 living in Oregon and 1 living in Indianapolis. Sue has been volunteering in the rescue world for more than a decade and knows the value of a resource like Stoney Run Canine Camp to the community. She has worked tirelessly for the past 3 years to make this dream a reality.
Kim has 30+ years of operational management experience, to include a company consisting of multiple large facilities with 500 employees and 25 acres of outdoor space. Later in her career, she was instrumental in the growth of a commercial appraisal review company, and was the director of an all-breed dog and cat rescue for 3 years. Kim was a founding board member of It’s A Pittie Rescue, has spent years volunteering inside several shelters in Illinois, and has been active in the rescue community for more than 15 years in both Illinois and Indiana. Kim’s experience caring for and managing all breeds while they lived at the rescue facility, and dealing with a wide variety of medical and behavioral issues, provided her with a critical skill set. Owning and running a property devoted to the care and betterment of dogs has been a goal of Kim’s for over a decade. Her dream of creating a place for people to come to not only have fun with their dogs, but to provide a resource for families needing help integrating a new pet into the home, has finally become a reality. A major focus of her time in rescue was helping place dogs into new families. The families that succeeded almost always found a support system outside the home; a safe and secure place for their pets to stay while away from their own homes–a home away from home–and a place to spend time with their dogs, building bonds and strengthening relationships. Together with her business partner Sue, they have created such a place in Stoney Run Canine Camp, which Kim now calls home. They are committed to their shared mission to secure Stoney Run Canine Camp’s position as a valuable resource for the community, and a place for your dog to call their home away from home.
To ensure all dogs who come to Stoney Run Canine Camp receive excellent care, attention, and training, Sue and Kim have chosen people in all service areas who share their compassion for animals. They strive to help families succeed in the everyday challenges of owning a dog. And by introducing families to the world of dog sports, a dog’s natural drive and instincts will be fulfilled.
Having fun with your dog, building bonds of trust, and having a safe place for them to stay while traveling is the mission of Stoney Run Canine Camp.
