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.

    What I love most about my job: "Being able to spend days with dogs is the best, but the most satisfying part of my job is rehabilitating dogs that have major social anxiety. After dogs with social anxiety come to camp and watching their confidence grow so they can play with out any stress, fear or worry is so rewarding! I believe all dogs should be able to socialize and play free of worry."

    My pets: Two dogs, Tonk, a 10 year old black lab and Bo, a 3 year old. high energy, yellow lab!

    Jessika (we call her Jess) has followed her love and passion for dogs until the path led her to camp! She has been with the Camp Bow Wow team for over 3 years now and she says, "My experience has been nothing short of amazing. I learn something new from the dogs every day and now it's my turn to teach them a thing or two!"

    As a Certified Trainer, she has learned the importance of proper communication and the strong bond it creates between pet parents and their fur babies. "I can't wait to share with you what I've learned to help create happy, healthy, safe relationships throughout the canine community!" says Jess.

    Jess has two fur-babies of her own, Boba, an Australian Shepherd, and Deka, a Yorkshire Terrier.
