#GiveAFetch 2017

#giveafetch2017We are excited to participate in #GiveAFetch which kicks-off on Saturday, September 23rd! #GiveAFetch is a national campaign that promotes being a responsible pet parent and community member while celebrating the special things we do for our dogs.

Starting on Saturday, you will find a big cardboard tennis ball dispenser in our lobby. The next time you visit Camp, fill out how you ‘give a fetch’ on one of the paper tennis balls provided and place it on the globe of the dispenser. Each week, one client will be selected to win a free day of Day Camp! #GiveAFetch lasts through October 31st so get in on this fun nationwide initiative!

Meet Shift Leader Daphne!

Daphne Morris 2Daphne’s dog, Tyrion, introduced her to Camp Bow Wow. Tyrion was a Membership client who loved Camp so much, he convinced his mom to submit an application. Fast forward to December of 2016, and Daphne started working here!

Daphne’s favorite part of her job is being able to work with all of the cute Campers! Tyrion also gets to come to work with her every day – which they both love!

Tyrion is a two-year-old Cattle Dog mix. He is a very happy pup! Tyrion is her only fur-child and he loves the attention – that adorable smile never leaves his face!

Outside of Camp, Daphne spends her free time with her boyfriend of over three years, Mike.  Together they enjoy taking Tyrion on long walks every day to wind down from long days at school. Daphne attends Ozarks Technical Community College and is studying Respiratory Therapy!

New Cabins!

The long wait is finally over here at Camp! We are happy to share that 14 new boarding cabins were delivered last week.

New Cabins

These additional cozy cabins provide a sense of safety and security for your smaller pups. As we know, dogs come in all shapes and sizes, which is why we offer a variety of cabin sizes to accommodate all of our boarding Campers.

Cabin Size

Condo CollageWe always make certain your dogs are in the right cabin for them. We ensure that the cabin is big enough so that your Campers can stretch out to sleep, turn around easily, stand up and not bump their head, and sit comfortably. Having a cabin that is too large feels like an “empty house” to a dog.

Proper cabin choice provides a cozy, comfy feeling to pups and reduces anxiety in our Campers. We always do our best to make each of our furry guests as comfortable as possible during their stay with us!

We are excited to offer these additional sizes to make sure your pup is as happy and healthy as possible during their stay with us!

Meet Oliver, Our September Camper Of The Month!

Springfield September 2017 COMOliver is an adorable eight-month-old Labradoodle! He is as energetic as they come and we wouldn’t have him any other way. Oliver started coming to Camp in May of 2017 and hasn’t looked back since!

Oliver romps around in Charlie’s Play Yard. He always socializes with his fellow Campers but he is never too busy to grab a quick belly rub or ear scratches from his Camp Counselors!

We can always count on Oliver to keep his Camp friends active. We are falling for Oliver this month!
