Dallas 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.

    Daniel has been with us four years and has been a fixture of the leadership team. His love for every dog at Camp, plus his passion for making daycare and boarding a worry-free, pleasant experience for all our pet parents, is unmatched. Most of our regular clients know him for his excellent customer service; or if you’re the parent of a Doodle . . . he has probably told you that he and your pup are BFFs.

    Daniel has been a paw-some supervisor and assistant manager here these last few years, and we're so excited to officially welcome him as our Top Dog in 2021!

    Camp Bow Wow Dallas High Five is owned and operated by Steve and Michelle Martin, both native Texans. Steve earned a Master’s degree in physics from East Texas State University and an MBA from the University of Texas. He worked at Texas Instruments for 23 years as an engineering manager. Michelle earned her Master’s in English literature from Southern Methodist University and worked as a writer and editor in educational publishing for 15 years.

    Steve and Michelle met in June of 2008 and married in 2010, settling near White Rock Lake in Dallas. They merged their fur-family Brady-Bunch style and now have six beautiful kids together: Zoë, Buster, Bella, Bear, Charlie, and Capri.

    When Steve decided to take early retirement in 2011, he and Michelle began to ponder: What kind of business can we be passionate about and build together? Camp Bow Wow, with its focus on being the place where a dog can be a dog, and where giving back to the community is a core value, seemed the natural choice. Plus, the kids loved the idea! As the business has grown, helping homeless pups find "Fur-ever Homes" through our Camp Foster Program remains a top priority. After all, is IS all about the dogs!

    Fun Facts

    What we love most about our jobs: We get to meet and know so many amazing pets (and their parents!) and feel blessed each day to witness how they continue to learn, grow, and love. Can a job get much better than that?

    Our dogs: Charlie is in Steve's lap; Capri is in Michelle's (their favorite places!). On the floor, left to right, are Bear, Bella, Buster, and sweet Zoe, who now lives over the Rainbow bridge.
