    Anita Owner

    Feeling peace of mind as a pet parent at Camp Bow Wow, Anita Sahoo decided to jump over the fence to franchise owner. With a pack of visionary Camp Counselors and the inspiration of her two pups, Tikka and Mirchi, Camp Bow Wow Henderson opened March 2014. Anita is fascinated by the human-canine relationship. “My pups are my kids!” exclaims Anita. Once fearful of pups, she learned that a nurtured, exercised, and socialized pup is an unconditionally loving, loyal, and dedicated family member. Camp Bow Wow helps make this happen. "Treating pups like our own children, not only enhances and enriches their lives, but also our own lives. Every day, I realize I am fortunate to be a part of so many pups’ and parents’ lives. I see every pup at Camp Bow Wow Henderson like my own, I look forward to getting to know you and your pup, and give you peace of mind when you can’t be with your pup."

    Skills and Experience

    Background: This has been my first job working with animals and so far it has been amazing! Before Camp, I worked at a casino and I'm so much happier at Camp!

    Additional Skills/Qualifications: Certified in pet first aid and CPR, trained in dog behavior, and play yard management.

    Fun Facts

    What I love most about my job: I love seeing all our regular pups learn and grow at Camp and I love watching the new campers warm up to camp and realize it’s a fun place to meet new fur-riends! Camp has been the greatest job I’ve had the pleasure to have. It's helping me become an amazing groomer, and teaching me so much about furkids!

    My pets: I have four pups of my own, a German Shepherd/Blue Heeler mix named Meeka, a Staffie mix named Joy, a Manchester Terrier mix named Nemo, and a Chihuahua named Nahla. They are my kids and I couldn’t imagine a home without them.
