Meet Addie, Our August Camper Of The Month!

Springfield August 2017 COMAddie stole our hearts on her Interview day back in January 2017.  She is an eleven-month old Pembroke Welsh Corgi. We’re not quite sure how she has so much spunk and personality in that tiny body but we aren’t complaining!

Addie has her paw-ortites straight at Camp. There is not a lot of time for socialization in the Front Yard because she knows she always has a play yard full of friends waiting for her in the back!

Addie is as sweet as can be and we love when she visits for Day Camp. We are excited to wrap-up summer with Miss Addie as our August Camper of the Month!

Play Yards At Camp

The answer to these questions are pretty simple – your dog will be playing with dogs similar in size and temperament to themselves!

We have multiple play yards divided first by breed and size and then distributed out by temperament accordingly. The Camp Counselors in each yard are monitoring the play yards at all times and communicating frequently with each other so they can move Campers around based upon their energy levels.

Don’t be surprised if your Camper switches between play yards throughout their stay or each time they come to Camp. It is totally normal and it means they get to make even more friends in the different yards!

Meet Camp Counselor Jacob!

Jacob Gray 2Jacob heard about Camp through his friend Rachel who just so happens to be one of our Shift Leaders! He liked the idea of a flexible work schedule seeing as he is a busy college student and decided to join the team.

Jacob’s family always owned small dogs when he was growing up. 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.
