Lafayette Team

From the individualized care our canine-loving staff provides to playtime with other four-legged friends, your dog has never had this much fun! 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.

    Acadiana native Suzette Tardo-Fowler has been active in the animal rescue community for quite some time. It was after the tragic passing of her late husband and fellow animal activist that she found herself becoming a business owner and servicing the community through Camp Bow Wow. Since opening in 2009 she has been able to increase the services Camp Bow Wow has to offer the community from not just boarding and daycare but grooming, training, and even in-home pet care. The support from her loyal customers is what has allowed Camp to thrive and be the BEST! Suzette is a shining example of seeing stars through the darkness and what she has brought to our animal community has thrived because of her love, compassion, and dedication to all animals.

    Fun Facts

    What I love most about my job: Becoming a part of the lives of our customers! Seeing both the parents and pups so happy to see us as they arrive and knowing that I am able to genuinely provide the dogs with a happy, healthy, and safe experience is just so overwhelmingly gratifying. As a pet parent I can not begin to express how much I understand the abundance of emotions that come with needing pet care; and now I'm gifted with the opportunity to make those emotions turn to joy, comfort and even RELIEF! Our wonderful customers are everything to me. Their support, love, and loyalty for our Camp is my #1 driving force.

    Our dogs: Lucky, Barney, Sweet-Pea, and Chocolate & (The Late) Ernie Burns & Jack Tucker.

    Our cats: Joshua, Waffles, Lulu, Mimi, Rony, & (The late) Jake

    Katie has been grooming for two years now. She started out in basic pet care as a vet tech and then was given the opportunity to groom.

    Her favorite dog breed is the dachshund and has two at home! Their names are Bella and Whoopie.

    Katie loves Camp because not only does she get to groom many different breeds, but also has the opportunity to see and play with many others who are just here for Camp. "It's great to see such happy pets!"
