Careers_1.jpg

We are so happy to be a part of the El Cajon 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 OWNERS

 
  Mark & Connie
Mark and Connie

Mark and Connie opened Camp Bow Wow in March, 2008. They spent 25+ years in the Corporate World; Mark on the Service side and Connie in Global Human Resources. After having spent so many years in Corporate America, they decided it was time to do something different with their lives; something they could be truly passionate about. Both being big animal lovers, particularly dogs, they decided to look at businesses in the animal industry. When they found Camp Bow Wow, they fell in love with the model and took the leap!

They love running and growing their business. They have truly found their passion! It is so rewarding to see all the happy pups romping through the doors of Camp each and every day. They love their team and their customers, both two-legged and four-legged alike!

They have two fur-babies of their own (pictured here); Roxy who is a sweet and gentle rescued 12 ½ year old Chocolate Lab and her little sister Madison who is an energetic and fun–loving Cavachon (Cavalier King Charles Spaniel mixed with a Bichon).

When they are not in Camp, they enjoy spending time with friends and family, traveling, camping and taking their girls on long walks at the beach.
