El Cajon 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.

    Mark and Connie Owner

    Mark and Connie opened Camp Bow Wow in March, 2008. They spent 25+ years in the Corporate World; Mark on the Service side and Connie in Global Human Resources. After having spent so many years in Corporate America, they decided it was time to do something different with their lives; something they could be truly passionate about. Both being big animal lovers, particularly dogs, they decided to look at businesses in the animal industry. When they found Camp Bow Wow, they fell in love with the model and took the leap!

    They love running and growing their business. They have truly found their passion! It is so rewarding to see all the happy pups romping through the doors of Camp each and every day. They love their team and their customers, both two-legged and four-legged alike!

    They have two fur-babies of their own (pictured here); Roxy who is a sweet and gentle rescued 12 ½ year old Chocolate Lab and her little sister Madison who is an energetic and fun–loving Cavachon (Cavalier King Charles Spaniel mixed with a Bichon).

    When they are not in Camp, they enjoy spending time with friends and family, traveling, camping and taking their girls on long walks at the beach.
