Dreaming of a Pawfect Holiday Celebration? Send Your Dog to Camp at Camp Bow Wow®
Send your dog to camp at Camp Bow Wow so you'll both enjoy the howlidays more!
Camp Bow Wow takes the worry out of the holidays for individuals on the road because they know that their Campers will have plenty of exercise, play and human attention during their stay. In Camp Bow Wow’s all-day play environment, pups can go between the indoor, climate-controlled play areas and adjacent outside areas at will: climb on play bridges, paddle in puppy pools or curl up in a sunny nook to nap whenever they chose. Camper guardians can check in on their pup from 30 or 3,000 miles away by logging on to the Camp Bow Wow website to watch real-time footage broadcast by one of the many live Camper Cams(sm) installed around the camp facilities.
Camp Bow Wow is a great place for dogs to spend the holidays even if the family is staying in town. “If you’re planning to entertain a large crowd at your home during the holidays, sending your dog to Camp during the party can alleviate a lot of stress for both of you,” said Heidi Ganahl, CEO and founder of Camp Bow Wow “Especially if he or she is unnerved by large groups of people or you have a guest that’s afraid of or allergic to dogs. Most try to work around the issues by keeping their dogs confined to a separate room or outside while their guests are in the house. Unfortunately that tends to raise a dog’s anxiety level, since they generally want to be where the action and people are. Puppy parents experience a subtle rise in their own stress level as well because of the constant underlying worry that their dog will either get out and disrupt the party, run out of the house unaccompanied when a guest opens the door, or filch rich foods from the holiday table that can make him/her sick.”
“Happy dogs at Camp don’t experience the same anxieties that dogs boarding in traditional kennels often have because of being crated and bored,” continued Ganahl. “Our campers are so busy having fun, socializing and playing with the other dogs during the day, they’re tired out and ready to relax when it’s time to go back to their cabins.” After a full day of play, overnight campers at Camp Bow Wow retreat to a private, climate-controlled cabin, 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 parent’s request. To avoid upset stomachs, parents of overnight campers are encouraged to bring their pup’s food from home. Camp Bow Wow’s fees are all-inclusive.
For 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;
If you have a blended pet family (cats, dogs, reptiles, birds or fish) and are traveling out of town, you can rely on your local Home Buddies by Camp Bow Wow® and its dedicated staff to take care of your pets in the comfort of your own home. Home Buddies by Camp Bow Wow® offers a menu of in-home services that includes a range of services like dog walking and clean up services; installing Home Buddies CamsTM in your home so you can check in on your pet family’s antics on line; to spending quality time with your pets and overnight stays.

About Home Buddies by Camp Bow Wow®
New In-Home Pet Services Franchise Backed by the Camp Bow Wow® Brand
The latest brainchild from Camp Bow Wow creator Heidi Ganahl, Home Buddies, builds upon the Camp Bow Wow mantra, “It’s all about the dogs,” and applies it to all family pets. The new in-home service was designed to provide an antidote for the stress pet parents feel when leaving their furry, feathery and fishy broods at home alone. Home Buddies is dedicated to keeping a pet family together and happy while their parents are away at work, running errands or jetting off for a well-earned vacation.
The service was created in response to Camp Bow Wow parents who have other pets needing care at home – new born pups, elderly or infirmed dogs, cats, birds and fish – who aren’t eligible to attend camp. Each locally owned Home Buddies provides pet owners with a menu of services so clients can customize care and services to meet their pet family’s needs. Home Buddies services include dog walking, daytime and overnight care and poop scoop cleanups and administering care to special needs pets. Pet parents, who can’t bear to be away from their brood, can rent Home Buddies CamsTM, similar to the cameras used at Camp Bow Wow locations, and have them installed in their homes so they can look in on their family by logging on to the internet.
