    Drew Years Open: 5 Owner / Manager

    Drew has lived almost his whole life in Baton Rouge, except for 5 1/2 years when he lived in California. While in California, he worked at several different vets. He started as a kennel caretaker and moved up to being a vet tech. One day, Drew transported a dog from the animal hospital to a Camp Bow Wow in the area. It was then that he realized this type of business existed - a place where a dog can go to just have a good time. Drew then decided to move back to Baton Rouge and start his own franchise. This Camp Bow Wow was opened in August of 2013. Drew started Camp Bow Wow to be able to give dogs what they need to live a happy and healthy life - a positive place where a dog can truly be a dog. It provides a safe and happy place for their dogs to come play and stay and parents can leave them here and feel confident that they will be safe, taken care of, and have a great time.

    What I love most about my job: Being able to give dogs a place where they can be happy and healthy - a place where a dog can truly be a dog.

    My dogs: Hurley, the Chihuahua, and Rocco the Golden Retriever
