Tony & Jamie Owners See Full BioTony & Jamie OwnersMeet our new owners, Tony and Jamie Caruso! We are beyond excited to add Camp Bow Wow Grand Rapids Airport to our Pack, and introduce you to our family! We began the Camp Bow Wow journey when our (now 15-year-old) Vizsla, Abby, needed a safe place to stay, while we were on vacation or away at work. She led us to finding Camp Bow Wow and we knew right away that we had to be a part of this special business, that is filled with tail wags and sloppy kisses!We opened our first Camp Bow Wow in 2007, in St. Clair Shores, Michigan. As time went on, and our family grew, so did our mission. We added a second location in St. Clair Shores (that caters to smaller pups), and two locations in the Springfield, Missouri area. We absolutely love what we do, and are deeply passionate about building relationships with our staff, our local communities, and with our local rescue groups!
As we grow, our mission to offer peace of mind, and a safe, happy environment that is super fun for your furry family members is even more important to us! The Grand Rapids certified team will continue to be dedicated to high-quality care for your best furiend.
We are tremendously excited to be a part of the Grand Rapids community. Thank you for entrusting us and our fabulous team to care for your precious pups!
We are also excited to announce Tony has received his professional certification by the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers (CCPDT)!
