Our Team

Jim and Debbie, along with their daughters, Grace, a freshman in college, and Emma, a sophomore in high school, are the proud owners of Camp Bow Wow New Lenox coming this Spring of 2020! The camp will be located at 22032 Howell Drive. undefined

Dogs have always been a passion of the Cochonour family. Debbie has been on the Jr. Board of a Chicago rescue and along with Jim, has given the gift of a foster home for dogs in need. For years, the Cochonours have been the designated dog sitting family to all of their neighbors and friends. Their home is known as the "Ritz" as they have taken in multiple dogs at a time and treated all of their house guests like the elite pups that they are. Their family has always loved being around dogs and truly know what it's like to love and be loved by these amazing beings.

Also introducing their peekapoo, Gigi, who was adopted at 7 years old and is now a young 13. Gigi adores her mom and insists on morning cuddles to start her day. Although she is the smallest member, she most certainly runs the home with her threatening two teeth. Coco and Bella, a chocolate lab mix duo, are their newest additions. They are a mother-daughter rescue who are now learning the sweet life of a loving home. They spend hours wrestling, finding the perfect slipper, and working to perfect the skill of escaping their crate to impress their new family.

Being the dog lovers that they are, the Cochonours are excited to open their first camp, a place where your dog can simply be a dog!

    Hello, my name is Amy! Dogs have always been an absolute obsession of mine. I love all breeds, sizes, and personalities. I believe we as humans can learn a lot from these amazing animals. The unconditional kindness, love, and care that they can provide to almost all individuals is unreal! I have two goofy pups of my own, Roger and Ruth. Both are pit-mix rescues and absolute love bugs! I don't know how I ever lived life before them. Roger and Ruth are two balls of energy that love to romp and play all day. They're both experts at the zoomies and are excited as I am to go to camp! I am beyond thrilled to be a part of such a great team with Camp Bow Wow New Lenox and can't wait to meet all your pups this summer!
