“The safety and happiness of all of our campers is our first priority,” said Barbara Patton, owner and Top Dog of Camp Bow Wow Ann Arbor. “We make sure that our Campers get plenty of exercise, play and human attention. In our all-day play environment pups can go between the indoor, climate-controlled play areas and the adjacent outside areas at will. They never have to wait for a walk, and they can decide for themselves whether they’d like to run with the pack, climb on play bridges or curl up in a sunny nook for a nap.”
“Sending your dog to Camp helps to alleviate the stress many dog owners feel for their pups when they leave them at home alone,” continued Patton, “because they know their pups will be well cared for while they’re gone. The same holds true for our canine Campers. They don’t have time to be lonely or bored because they’re busy having fun – socializing and playing with the other dogs during the day. At the end of the day they’re all happy, tired out and ready to relax.” After a full day of play, Overnight Campers at Camp Bow Wow Ann Arbor will retreat to one of the Camp’s 38 private, climate-controlled cabins, for dinner, downtime and a tasty Campfire Treat. The spacious cabins, all furnished with comfy cots and soft fleece blankets, are large enough that several Campers from the same family can bunk together at their owner’s request. To avoid upset stomachs, parents of overnight Campers are encouraged to bring their pup’s food from home. “Have a pup that needs daily medication or has other special needs? Just let me know,” commented Patton, “and we’ll be happy to provide the service(s) with no extra charge. Our Camp fees are all-inclusive.”
All campers at Camp Bow Wow are under the constant supervision of a Camp Counselor, trained in pet CPR, first aid, dog behavior, group play dynamics, safety/health management and, of course, cleaning procedures. Camp Bow Wow Ann Arbor is staffed with one counselor to every 15 Campers. To further ensure the safety and security of all, new Campers are required to participate in a free interview day, before
they attend camp. Canine Campers must be at least four months old; spayed or neutered if six months or older; up-to-date on their rabies and distemper vaccinations;
Patton, a Michigan native, discovered Camp Bow Wow when a co-worker in the insurance industry, who knew how crazy she is about dogs, sent her a copy of a Camp Bow Wow ad. She was immediately struck by the all-day play concept. “I always felt bad about leaving my dogs at home when I was going to work. I’d go home to let them out at lunchtime, but by the time I got home in the evening, I was too tired to play with them. At Camp Bow Wow our canine Campers can play all day and are ready to relax with their families in the evening. It’s a perfect solution.”
