Columbia Team

From the individualized care our canine-loving staff provides to playtime with other four-legged friends, your dog has never had this much fun! Our team understands the key elements to a happy pup and we find great joy in incorporating them into our daily activities. 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.

    When we opened Camp Bow Wow, we wanted to combine our passions - dogs and business. Having been avid dog lovers our entire lives we knew the options that were out there for dog boarding and day camp - a-la-carte pricing and cooped up kennels with little to no play time. We wanted to create a safe and FUN place for our own pups and when we found Camp Bow Wow we knew this was the business for us. Eric, whose background is in Human Resources, took on the day to day operations as we launched our Camp. Michael, who has a background in software technology, continued his 'day job' while managing the back-office activities.

    Over the years, we've been very fortunate to have received such a warm welcome from the community, grow an amazing and loyal customer base, build a hard-working team, and of course have a lot of fun with the pups! We look forward to serving our two and four legged customers for many years to come.

    Fun Facts

    What we love most about our job: Seeing pups pull their parents through the doors so that they can romp and play with all of their friends, oh and the smiles on our Campers' faces while they are playing in the yards!
    Our dogs: Helga, Gertrude (Trudie) and Monte, the original inspiration to open Camp, who is no longer with us. But will never be forgotten.
