We are so happy to be a part of the Aurora community and have gotten to know many wonderful pets (and their parents!) since we opened. Our whole staff would like to thank all our customers for letting us have, as we say, a 'Dog Gone Good' Time!

We think we are the best Camp Counselors your pup could have! Everyone on staff is a SERIOUS dog lover, with practical training in dog behavior certifications in pet first aid and dog CPR. All of us are eager to meet and greet you and your best canine buddy. Collectively we have many years of experience with dogs, and we promise to take the best possible care of your furry friends.

We spend all day at Day Camp, from early in the morning to late in the evening, watching over your Campers. We are the ones who give out the special Campfire TreatsTM each night before lights out, and tuck each Camper into their own spacious, comfy and clean Cabin.

We pride ourselves on getting to know your pup’s name, who their friends are, and just where they like to be scratched. We will take special care of your furry kids and make sure they have a PAW-some time at Camp. We look forward to meeting you and your furry friends!

MEET THE OWNER

 
  Alex and Craig
Craig and Alex Wilson

Years Open: 1
Craig and Alex moved to the Aurora area 3 years ago with the intention of opening Camp Bow Wow Aurora. They saw it as the perfect opportunity to combine their love for dogs with their love for Colorado. "We have been coming to Colorado to ski for many years, and wanted to move here." When this opportunity came up, we jumped at it."

This was no small task as they were moving from Portugal. Alex was born and raised in Lisbon, Portugal. Craig is from Winston-Salem, N.C. When they met 17 years ago, Craig moved to Portugal and they opened "Il Caffe Di Roma." This is a franchise coffee shop/restaurant based in Spain. They ran a very successful franchise for 10 years, winning top franchise sales for 8 of those 10 years, before selling and deciding to move to the U.S.A. "We had a great time running that store, and I particularly loved being immersed in a different culture," Craig says, "learning the ins and outs of doing business in a foreign country was always interesting and full of surprises...some good and some bad." The decision to leave Portugal and head for Colorado was not an easy one, but they have both fallen in love with the people of Colorado and Aurora and are very happy with their decision.

Craig and Alex have enjoyed getting settled and building relationship in the Aurora community...and with their love of all things dog related, they fit right in!
