About Us

Our Team

Camp Bow Wow® Smyrna 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 Smyrna community and look forward to meeting so many wonderful pets (and their parents!) when we open. 

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 will 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 will also 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!



Shellie Vogler

Shellie Vogler was born and raised in middle Tennessee and also attended both high school and college locally. She is a mother of one and a step mom of two children. Shellie has been married to her supportive husband for 6 years and they have 5 dogs, so there's never a dull moment at their house! Her 2 passions have always been children and dogs. For 25 years, Shellie ran her own child daycare business and after deciding to retire from child care, she decided to pursue her second passion for dogs...which is what led her to Camp Bow Wow. Shellie is very excited about opening the new Camp Bow Wow in Smyrna and can't wait to meet all of your paw-some 4 legged family members!

What I love most about my job: I love providing a safe and fun environment for all the dogs, and look forward to seeing their excited faces as they enter camp!
