Friends Inside And Outside Of Camp

It would be an understatement to say we had a blast at Dogfest this past weekend! We always enjoy making new friends, but we love when our Campers come see us at events!


Our four and a half hours at Chesterfield Family Center Park were filled with smiling faces from new and old friends! Thank you all so much for coming to visit us! You made our fun filled Saturday ten times better!

Our next event will be Pets and Pumpkins! It will be on Saturday, October 15th on Historic Commercial Street from noon to five PM! Get your fur child’s Halloween costume out early and come see us!

Camp Bow Wow In The Community

It’s like Christmas morning every time the UPS or FedEx men deliver us packages! This week we got our new banner in the mail!


As you know, we participate in local events multiple times a year to spread the word about the services we offer here at Camp Bow Wow. This weekend is DogFest, and our new banner is here just in time!

Be sure to stop by and see us this Saturday, September 24th, at Chesterfield Family Center park! DogFest will be from 10 AM to 2:30 PM!

Don’t Stress About Reserving a Spot at Day Camp!

Dog Window Car

It’s easy to get into a routine and only bring your fur child to Day Camp on your busiest days of the week. We want you to know that it is perfectly fine to break your routine and bring your four-legged friend ANY day of the week you need them to come play!

You don’t need to worry about reserving a spot for Day Camp! We will be happy to see your pup, any day and any time!

Meet Shift Leader, Adrienne!

Adrienne has been at Camp with us for almost two years, and she has recently taken on more responsibilities to become a Shift Leader!

CBW Adrienne and Remi 2Growing up, Adrienne always wanted a dog to call her own so she found ways to get her puppy fix! She spent one summer working with dogs from a local shelter and children before she heard about Camp Bow Wow. She jumped on the opportunity to work at Camp and we have loved having her ever since!

It is a rare occasion to see Adrienne without her fur child, Remington (more commonly known as Remi). Remi is a one-year old Saint Bernard/Boxer/Border Collie mix with a big personality! He loves coming to Camp and chasing birds!

At Camp, you can typically find Adrienne giving baths and hanging out by the doggie pools! Outside of Camp, she enjoys the outdoors by exploring new hiking trails and going on float trips! Adrienne is studying Wildlife Biology at Missouri State University – which we think is perfect for her outdoorsy personality!


The Many Faces Of Camp Bow Wow Springfield


As you know, one of our favorite parts about working at Camp is taking pictures of your pups! We have way too much fun trying to get the cutest pictures of them smiling and posing for the camera! We do our best to find their good side and best angles to show off their adorable faces.

With that being said, a lot of pictures are taken in the process! By a lot, we mean A LOT. We love going through the blooper reels and finding the pictures that really show your dog’s personality! Between photo bombs, yawns, closed eyes, tongues out, mid barks, and jumping with excitement, we have seen it all! Your dogs never fail to put a smile on our faces and we wouldn’t have it any other way!






September Camper Of The Month, Sambo!

CBW Sambo

Sambo is a Senior Camper here at Camp Bow Wow Springfield, but you would never know it based off of his active personality! He is an 11-year old Beagle who has been a Camper since 2009 – that’s right, seven years!

Sambo is a regular day Camper and boarder who loves spending his days in Sandy’s Play Yard. When he’s not running around playing tag with his other Beagle friends, you can find him stealing the hearts of his Camp Counselors! Sambo is a sweetheart, and we can’t get enough of his adorable smile!
