About Us

Our Team

Camp Bow Wow® Lafayette offers dog day care and overnight boarding and our highly-trained staff is dog gone passionate about providing safe, fun and individualized care for your four-legged family members.


We are so happy to be a part of the Lafayette 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: Suzette Tardo-Fowler


Suzette Tardo-Fowler

Years Open: 6

Acadiana native Suzette Tardo-Fowler has been active in the pet rescue community long before Camp Bow Wow. It was after the tragic passing of her late husband & fellow animal activist that she found herself becoming a business owner servicing the pet community and truly filling both a great demand in the pet community and place in her heart for animals of all shapes and sizes!
It has been 6 wonderful years now of love and growth for this wonderful business where she has gone from boarding & daycare to now providing grooming, training and even in-home pet care.
Mrs. Suzette Tardo-Fowler is a shining example of seeing stars through the darkness and what she has brought to our pet community has thrived because of the pure love, compassion, dedication she has given to so many animals both past and present.

Fun Facts

What I love most about my job: Becoming a part of the lives of our customers! Seeing both the parents and pups so happy to see us as they arrive and knowing that I am able to genuinely provide the dogs with a happy, healthy, safe experience is just so overwhelmingly gratifying. As a pet parent I can't begin to express how much I understand the abundance of emotions that come with needing pet care; and now I'm gifted with the opportunity to make those emotions turn to joy, comfort and even RELIEF! Our wonderful customers are everything to me. Their support, love and loyalty for our Camp is my #1 driving force.
Our dogs: Lucky, Barney, Sweet-Pea, and Chocolate & (The Late)Ernie Burns & Jack Tucker.

Our cats: Joshua, Waffles, Lulu, Mimi, Rony, & Jake
