Our 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.

    My wife, Colleen and I were both working the fast-paced retail industry traveling 2 weeks every month to NY and LA. While traveling extensively we had 2 dogs who would either stay in a kennel or with a pet sitter who would stay in our home. With the changing landscape of retail we had been looking for other opportunities that would require less travel. With our love of dogs we stumbled across an advertisement on Yahoo's home page about Camp Bow Wow. We were intrigued by the concept of all-day-play daycare for the dogs, and the ability to watch our dogs online when we traveled. The online cameras were especially valuable as we no longer had to take the word of the kennel on how the dogs were treated during their stay. We saw how professional, caring and fun the Camp Bow Wow Franchise was and knew this was the business for us. We explored the opportunity and knew Camp Bow Wow was the perfect fit for Lincoln! At the time we needed to explain to the public what all inclusive pricing, all day daycare and all-day-play boarding was about.

    We are thrilled to offer a fun all day play environment where our fantastic customers can watch their dogs live on web cams! Giving back to the community has also been an important interest to us. We partner and work closely with the shelter and rescue groups with our Foster dog program to give shelter dogs a fun place to play, get socialized and help them get adopted. We raise thousands of dollars annually for the shelter.

    Finally, a place we are thrilled to take our 3 dogs!

    Our dogs: Zara, a Yorkshire Terrier who was adopted after being a foster failure and has endless energy. Zena, a Yorkshire Terrier who makes the energizer bunny look calm. Sasha, a ShiTzu/Maltese mix, a very loving girl who we adopted from the shelter.
