Meet The Owners
Home Buddies is locally owned and operated by Jay and Gina Cornwall. Gina grew up in Ballard, Jay in Bellevue, and they now live in Lakemont with their daughter Samantha and adopted lab/golden mix, Boomer. Both Jay and Gina are true animal lovers who are thrilled to bring premier in-home pet care services to the Eastside with Home Buddies by Camp Bow Wow!
Jay was introduced to Camp Bow Wow when he lived in Colorado years ago. He would often take his dog Payton to camp for play time and board him there when taking trips. Camp Bow Wows are the most premier day camp and dog boarding facilities in the nation and they made such an impression on Jay, that once he moved back to Seattle, it was his dream to open a Camp Bow Wow here (the first of it's kind in Washington state). Five years later, Jay and Gina decided in 2010 to make that dream a reality and began their research into buying a franchise. While looking carefully into the idea of opening a camp, they discovered Home Buddies by Camp Bow Wow. Everything began to click. What a brilliant idea! Now not only will we be able to provide premier care for dogs, but all other types of animals too - and from the comfort of their own homes.
