About Franchising with Camp Bow Wow

A Dog Care Franchise That’s Revolutionizing the Industry

Camp Bow Wow has had a big impact on the pet care industry – in fact, we've disrupted it by creating a day care that dogs would design for themselves. Dogs visit Camp Bow Wow more than 5 million times a year, and our company has upended the traditional canine kennel model by creating a unique experience for dogs and thoughtfully growing with dog-loving entrepreneurs who want to grow with us. We’re an overnight and day care concept that dogs — and their owners — truly love.

Our Company Values:

  • Passion - We are fueled by our love for dogs.
  • Service - We exist to serve others.
  • Innovation - We embrace change and cultivate inspiration.
  • Integrity - We communicate through our actions.
  • Trust - We can always be counted on.
We are a boarding and grooming franchise with over 200 units in the U.S. and Canada and over $200 million** in revenue in 2023. See Available Locations

Here are some statistics of what we've been able to accomplish as the leader of the pack:

  • Industry's First: Founded in 2000 and began franchising in 2003
  • Ranked in Entrepreneur Franchise 500 for 14 consecutive years
  • Industry's premier Pet Care Franchise with over 200 Camps!
  • Experienced 6%* average annual revenue growth from 2023, which is nearly two and a half times the economy growth rate and over twice as much as the boarding and grooming sector***
Dogs need four things to thrive:
socialization, exercise, stimulation, and a little TLC!
Our passion and curiosity about what’s best for dogs and
their humans drives us to keep pushing and innovating.

Dogs don’t want to be locked away in cages, only being let out for brief bathroom breaks or listless pacing in a lonely dog run. That’s yesterday’s kennel. The hallmarks of Camp Bow Wow’s innovative practices keep customers coming to us again and again. We remain the leader because we understand, in our bones, why each of those innovations are important. We love dogs! We are always looking for ways to make dogs’ lives better, and to help pet parents keep their loved ones cared for and happy.

Creating "Pull Demand"

Pull demand is a term marketers use to define when customer acceptance of a product or service is so high, customers storm the gates – this is something you may see Apple customers do. We have our own version of pull demand. Camp Bow Wow can anecdotally measure a Camp’s success by something we call the “pull factor.” If a dog is pulling hard on his leash to get into the Camp, we know we’re doing a good job. Many of our regular customers bring their dogs to day care several days a week. For the dog, walking into Camp Bow Wow is like walking into a favorite bar. They sidle right up to their friends and start enjoying each other’s company immediately. Our overnight boarders trickle in throughout the day. They’ll be spending the night with us, tuckered out after playing with the other Camp dogs. When the day care dogs go home at night, the boarders settle into their comfy Cabins with fleeces and cots in a climate-controlled environment with soothing, piped-in music. They even get Campfire Treats™ before lights-out.
