Greetings From Camp Bow Wow
Camp Bow Wow franchise owners talk about their experiences

“We made the best choice we could have ever made in our initial decision to join the Camp Bow Wow franchise system. Our experience has been humbling and almost too good to be true.” –

Frank & Tamara Wetegrove

Having been a CEO in corporate healthcare for many years, I needed a change. Camp Bow Wow offered me the peace of mind of owning my own destiny with very real financial opportunities. Best decision I have ever made.

I feel so good about the level of care we provide people. They aren’t having to take their dogs and lock them up all the time in a kennel or drop them at a daycare that doesn’t do staffing levels the right way or do proper protocol and procedure. I feel like we’re literally helping people. The financial conversion that comes with opening them is so good. The more Camp franchises that open, the more it becomes a known brand and the more demand there is. Before we opened, nobody even knew what doggie day care was and none of these dogs got to go enjoy themselves during the day. Now, it’s the cultural norm.

It’s a fun business, it’s all about the dogs! Obviously, there is a business component to it but it’s really marrying that strong ROI investment component with something we’re just really passionate about.
