Meet Camp Counselor, Jacob!

Jacob Gray 2Jacob heard about Camp through his friend, and one of our Shift Leaders, Rachel! Jacob liked the idea of a flexible work schedule seeing as he is a busy college student.

Growing up Jacob’s  family always owned small dogs. However since starting his job here at Camp, he quickly found a love for bigger dogs as well! One of his long-term goals is to have a house large enough for a big dog someday.

Jacob’s favorite part of his job at Camp Bow Wow is getting to meet and play with all of the new Campers that come in each day. He loves introducing the Interviews to the play yards and watching their personalities shine as they make new friends!

Jacob has two dogs at home. The first is an eleven-year old Shih Tzu named Bingo. Like most older dogs, Bingo enjoys napping throughout the day. Beans is Jacob’s second dog, who is an energetic puppy who loves socks. If he does not hide them, he can usually be found chewing them up!

When Jacob is not at work, he spends time playing Nintendo games with friends, and eating Chinese takeout. Jacob is currently studying Accounting at Missouri State University.

Weekend Day Camp

running dogsCamp is always fun but there is something special about play dates with fur-iends on the weekend! We are open from 8 AM to 6 PM on Saturdays and Sundays. Our weekend boarders make great playmates and would love to have the extra company!

If your weekend plans have been taking a back seat to worrying about your dog being home alone, worry no longer. No need to call and make a reservation. Just pop in and let your Camper play for the day!

Vizsla Doppelgängers

CBW Vizsla PartyEvery now and then we have two dogs at Camp that make us do a double take in the play yards. This week we broke a personal record. We had four Vizsla’s that were all but identical! FOUR! Talk about seeing double.

Jax, Maverick, Jett, and Henry all stayed the night with us this weekend! These boys romped around in Pancake’s Play Yard and played non-stop. They definitely kept their Camp Counselors busy, and reminded them of the importance of name tags!

Bedtime Belly Rubs And Campfire Treats!

While you are more than welcome to pack your dog’s treats from home when they board with us, we like to give them a little something special from us!

cbw-campfire-treats-2We make what we call “Campfire Treats”, and pass them out at bedtime to your Campers. Campfire Treats are simply two Milk-Bone® treats with peanut butter between them, but made with a lot of love! This is why we double check that your Camper does not have food allergies at boarding check-in.

The Camp Counselors go around and tuck every Camper into bed for the night and give them some bedtime belly rubs with their treat. Sleep tight, Campers!

 

July Camper Of The Month, Tegan!

CBW Spfd July COM Tegan CrispTegan is a one-year old Siberian Husky who is full of spunk and energy! Tegan recently started coming to Camp in February of 2017, but his paw-sitivity stole our hearts from day one.

At Camp Tegan comes running in with his tail wagging and ready to play! He can hardly wait to get to the play yards, say “hi” to all of his friends, and start socializing.

As you can see, Tegan loves the camera! He is always the first one to round up his friends for a quick photo shoot. Tegan does not know a stranger in the play yards!

Tegan’s vibrant personality is lighting up Camp like a firework this month!

Meet Camp Counselor, Lacy!

CBW Lacy Gregory 2Lacy was excited with the idea of being able to play and work with dogs for her job when she started in December of 2015. Fast forward to now, a year-and-a-half later, and she is still just as excited to come to work each day!

Lacy loves every size and breed of dog, which means she loves each and every Camper! She always takes the time to get to know the dogs and their distinct personalities each day she is at Camp. You can always find Lacy in a play yard loving on all of our pups!

At home, Lacy has a seven-year old Golden Retriever named Copper! Copper is a very loving and cuddly girl. She loves swimming, chasing squirrels, going on long walks at the park, playing fetch, and going to Camp!

In her free time, Lacy enjoys nature and being outdoors – especially with Copper! She goes to the lake as much as she can, and loves spending time with her family and friends. Lacy is a senior in the IB Program at Central High School. She stays busy throughout the school year playing soccer, the flute, and working at Camp!
