Phoenix 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.

    as told by their dog Barkley

    My parents Travis and Amber think this new place is for local dogs to come play and learn with a day at Camp. I haven’t told them yet that I’m moving into the Luxury Suite as the official king of the castle. My parents have had other dog family members before, but I’m pretty sure I’m their favorite. My dad, Travis told me to tell you that he is a numbers guy. I don’t really see it, because he only gives me one bone when I ask for ten. My mom, Amber is on the communications side of things. She’s good at saying “good boy” and “sit” and “come here.” I know you’ll love my parents as much as I do.

    Bark ya later,

    Phoenix is our hometown and we’re so excited to be in the neighborhood. Our passion for dogs and the need for a trustworthy Phoenix dog daycare is why we decided to open this business. We hope to meet you and your furry companions soon!

    You’ll find Tessa at the Camp front desk greeting everyone with the biggest smile! Her organization skills and attention to detail brings so much value to our team. When asked what her favorite Camp moment has been she said, “when I overheard a pet parent asking her pup “are you excited to see me” while being greeted by an extremely happy pup, then the pet parent looked at me and said, “I love you all at Camp””. Previously, she worked for Disney in Florida, she then decided to move to Arizona to start a new journey and was so happy to find Camp Bow Wow since she has a passion for dogs and connecting with people! In her time off she enjoys going to the gym and hanging out with friends. Plus, Tessa has some cool hidden talents, she rode horses in show jumping for 12 years and played in an ultimate Frisbee league. Her personal motto is be the light in a so often dim world. Tessa makes our happy tails wag because she is one amazing Camp Counselor!
