    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: Born and raised in Los Angeles, lived in San Diego for 6 years (I love San Diego way more than LA because the beaches are way better, in my opinion). I love making others laugh and I'm definitely outgoing. This is my first job working with dogs and I'm beyond grateful that I've gotten the opportunity to do so! I'm also shooting for a major in Business.

    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: Seeing dogs who come from a bad past, build up their character in the play yard is by far my favorite. An interview dog who's been abused or neglected, with their tail tucked under or hiding in a corner the whole time just breaks my heart. But when they become regulars, you soon start to see that tail up and wagging, and that corner of comfort is now replaced with romping around the yard with some furriends! :) I also love getting to know the pups' parents and be able to satisfy their needs with any questions or concerns they may have. Creating a bond with the parents, dogs, and work-family is important to me!

    My pets: I started out with one dog.. took in another dog from a friend, and another dog showed up at my doorstep one night so now I'm a dog-mom of 3: Nemo (4 y/o Manchester Terrier Mix), Nahla (1 y/o Chihuahua), and Joy (7-month-old Staffie). I love them all so so much! I think I'm on pause right now for more dogs though, but I know there will be more...

    Background: I love to be outside whether it’s going on a hike, shopping, swimming, or tanning. Hanging out with friends and eating food is my main pastime activity.

    Additional Skills/Qualifications: Learning from Anthony, our trainer, has been a lot of help! Learning to gate manage properly and handle dogs who have a hard time listening sometimes is another great skill I've acquired. Gate management is probably one of the hardest but most successful tasks to acquire at camp.

    What I love most about my job: Creating a relationship and a bond with all the dogs and getting to see their personalities as they open up to us. It’s so rewarding to see dogs who were once shy and timid to break out of their shell and get excited to come to Camp.

    My pets: 2 cats. Nayla- 4-year-old rag dog. She loves to nap but will also play when she is in the mood and loves to crawl on your lap at the most inconvenient times. Sunny- 9-month-old tabby. She is very playful and gets into everything and anything. she lays like a dog with her legs stretched out in the back. she loves to eat plants and play with anything she finds.
