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.

    About Jen

    Jen D'Aurelio spent about 8 years as the Executive Director of Paws and Prayers, a pet rescue located in Akron, OH. She saved more than 8,000 animals through her efforts. She left the rescue a few years ago to concentrate on Camp Bow Wow. Making sure that Camp Bow Wow supports the community through fostering and donations to the Cuyahoga County Animal Shelter and the Bow Wow Buddies is very important to her. She is the proud mother of a human son named Rob, a U.S. Navy veteran, and his fiancée Heather. In her free time, Jen enjoys playing with her dogs, snuggling with her dogs, taking pictures of her dogs….do you see a trend?

    Fun Facts

    What I love most about my job: The pictures of the dogs sleeping after a long day of play at Camp Bow Wow!

    My pets: Jen is owned by four fur-babies: Hayes, Koda, Willow and Tinkerbelle.

    About Mike

    Mike managed an automotive factory for many years before having a close encounter with a Siberian Husky that changed his life. From that point on, Mike has dedicated his life to dog welfare and dog training. Mike quickly became the head trainer at a major pet retailer and, not long after, began hearing about doggie day camps; specifically Camp Bow Wow. Mike purchased his first camp in Cuyahoga Falls, OH back in 2010 and has been providing premier animal care ever since! He is very excited to bring his experience to our Highland Heights location!
