We believe every single one of our Campers deserves premier treatment, which is why you'll receive all of the great benefits of Camp at one upfront cost.

    Meet Samuel, our Camp Ranger. Samuel and his wife Christine are pet parents to an 8-year old female lab/mix named Jargon and an 8-year old foxhound named Lucy.

    When Jargon was a puppy, she required constant supervision because she loved to pick up items and chew on them. One evening, Jargon grew ill requiring emergency vet care. An x-ray revealed a blockage that turned out to be a rock. The rock was surgically removed but it was clear that Jargon would need to be supervised more closely when she was outside.

    With a demanding travel schedule for Samuel and long work hours for Christine, they researched the Albany region for dog daycare facilities that could assist in keeping a watchful eye on Jargon a few days a week. Unhappy with the facilities in the area, Samuel researched national franchises and came across the Camp Bow Wow brand. In 2014, Camp Bow Wow opened doors providing doggie daycare, boarding, grooming, and training services for dogs of the Albany area.

    “I’m a pet parent first and foremost”, says Samuel. “I view our operation through the lens of a pet parent and I’m very proud of our incredible customer service, transparency for pet parents to watch their dogs play via our webcams, and the peace of mind we offer our customers."
