September 2020 Camper of the MonthMaverick
Maverick has been a camper with us since the very beginning of Camp Bow Wow in Albany! Starting with us in October 2014, Maverick is a staff favorite for his unique personality. He hangs out with his fellow campers & counselors on weekends, and is always willing to tell you what he's thinking! He's known for being quite the chatterbox, but also for being an old soul who just wants all of the scratches and love he can get. Maverick is one of a kind and camp would not be the same without him!
August 2020 Camper of the MonthDoc
We have been lucky enough to have Doc as a regular camper with us since November of 2016! He is always such a happy boy, his joy and happiness radiate to everyone around him. That is one of the many reasons why we all love seeing when he comes in the door. Whether he is playing and running around or napping next to one of his friends, he is always putting a smile on someone's face!
July 2020 Camper of the MonthTigger
Tigger is the king of the red toy in the small dog yard! When he's at Camp, you can usually find him lying there with his tongue sticking out waiting for some belly rubs or taking a nice nap. He started with us as a 6 month old puppy and we've watched him grow into the mature 2 year old boy he is now, although he does still piddle when he gets excited about his belly rubs and seeing his favorite people! He puts a smile on everyone's face when he walks in and immediately rolls over waiting for someone to come pet his belly. We all love having handsome Tigger as a regular camper with us!
June 2020 Camper of the MonthDoc
Mister Doc has been gracing our team with his presence since he was a little pupper. This gentle giant has no problem zooming around the yards with his furriends and then plopping on down for a nap. When in yard, Doc loves to seek out the counselors and leans his whole body into their legs, his version of a hug! Though Doc is thrilled to get to Camp, no one is more important to him than his amazing mom Carol. These two are inseparable and have one of the most comical relationships, and our team has been spoiled by the loving and caring gestures from Carol. She always takes the time to catch up on life and share some of Doc’s mischievous adventures at home. They are not only famous at Camp for being the dynamic duo, but they have quite the following outside of our community, everyone knows and loves Doc and Carol!
February 2020 Camper of the MonthWatson
We're celebrating his 5 year anniversary with his forever friends at Camp! Watson is one of the sweetest pups who has flirted his way into all of our hearts. He has absolutely perfected puppy eyes and pulls you to him from across the yard with his adorable gaze. What's most memorable is when he jumps up to get up-close love and attention, he does it in the most gentle way. You barely feel anything before you notice his sweet face coming close for kisses. He also loves to wrap his paws around your hands and it feels like he's pulling you closer and closer, man this boy loves personal attention! When the weather is warmer you'll almost always find him outside catching some rays with a pack of friends surrounding him. He's kind of a big deal here.
January 2020 Camper of the MonthSloan
Sloan is one of the Camps original crew members, she started with us when she was just four months old! She's now a calm and loving 3-year-old gal who attends camp on a weekly basis. Girlfriend loves to be outside when the weather is warm and sunny, you'll find her working on her tan! She's such a treat to have in the yard, each counselor loves the one-on-one time she seeks out, determined to get her chin scratches and belly rubs. This little lady will pose for any photos, as soon as the camera comes out, she's smiling away...Tyra Banks would be proud! When it comes to costume season, other pups beware, Sloan takes the cake! This past Halloween she debuted as a mermaid and stole the show with her seashell bikini top and mermaid tail.
December 2019 Campers of the MonthWalter & Wilson
Oh boys... Walter and Wilson are our dynamic sibling duo at Camp. When the boys come into Camp we all know it's going to be a day full of laughs. Walter has been coming to camp since November 2016 and we recently were blessed with the addition of Wilson. When Walter is in the yard he insists on sitting on the Counselors feet, his way of demanding love and attention from everyone he meets. New Counselors quickly fall in love with Walter, he's not shy about introducing himself and establishing the 'pet me' relationship. When Wilson comes into Camp he always greets the front desk staff by untying their shoes, followed by the most adorable puppy eyes you've ever seen. Wilson was not shy when he started at Camp and is growing more and more outgoing each and every day. You'll usually find Wilson romping through the yards at full speed, eager to play with every dog he encounters.
November 2019 Camper of the MonthChooie
"Chooie, aka the Mayor of the Small Dog Yard, has been coming to Camp since we opened! His calm energy and welcoming personality make him the perfect candidate to greet all of our new campers. Chooie has worked his way into every counselor's heart and makes sure to get his daily dose of love and attention! He loves to wait for the counselors to stop walking and then delivers a paw-attack for chin and tail scratches!
October 2019 Camper of the MonthMax
Mister Max has been coming to camp for over two years and loves every minute of it. He’s always first in line to have his photo taken and will pose for you! He loves playing outside with his camp friends, romping around and getting plenty of cuddles from counselors. When Max leaves camp, he’s one tired but happy pup!
