Myrtle Beach 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.

    Gerry and John Owner

    Gerry had previously worked in the pharmaceutical research field for many years, having most recently worked as a consultant at Ethicon Biosurgery (a Johnson & Johnson company). For over 30 years, John worked at National Starch & Chemical Company (now called Ingredion), mostly recently in the role of Vice President of Research and Development. With a burning desire to leave New Jersey and begin our life in Myrtle Beach, John retired from his position, and Gerry left Ethicon and they began their journey with Camp Bow Wow. Having traveled extensively for work, they both understood the importance of a safe and fun place to leave their furry family members. After utilizing the services of Camp Bow Wow Bridgewater for many years, they decided to pursue their dream of working with dogs (and for themselves). It has been a wild ride, and they would not trade this experience for anything in the world! Meeting so many wonderful pups and their parents has been more enjoyable than they could have ever imagined!

    Fun Facts

    What I love most about my job: It is a tie between seeing the dogs pull their parents through the door because they can't wait to play, and the wonderful pet parents that we have met in the Grand Strand area!

    Our dogs: Daisy (Australian Cattle Dog) and Choopy (Lab/German Shepherd mix)

    Meet our General Manager, Christa Brown!

    I am a native Charlottean here via Charleston (SC). I have been with Camp Bow Wow since 2018 & could not be more proud to be part of this organization. Before joining Camp, I worked as a restaurant manager for 10 years. I loved the industry but I love dogs more! I was elated when Gerry & John brought me aboard!

    I live in Myrtle Beach with my husband Jeff, our four small senior pups Brianna, Lillian, Chief & Ruffles as well as our beloved guinea pig Belles. Our daughter attends Winthrop University where she is a junior studying Art History & Entrepreneurship.

    My favorite thing about my job is definitely the opportunity to enrich the lives of campers on a daily basis, while also forming personal relationships with the paw-rents built on open, honest communication. Our mission at camp is happy, healthy, safe pups & we are so blessed to be a part of their lives!
