Feynman "trots" when he walks, he brings his legs up so high with every step, we all think it's the cutest thing ever!

Steel is a pleasure to have at camp and his smile proves it ??

  • September 2022 Camper of the Month


    Mac the eight month old doodle puppy started coming to Camp in May! In the yards, we call him Little Mac- not to be confused with Big Mac and Mac Attack! Little Mac hangs out in the small dog yard, and he never stops playing! Well, maybe he’ll take a break to get some love from the counselor. Okay, he’ll definitely do that, but just for a minute so he can get right back to playing! Mac comes and plays his entire day all up until he gets picked up- and he’ll hop down the hall like a little goat all the way to lobby! Mac is such a great addition to our pack!

  • September 2022 Member of the Month

    Brewski and Falcon are our members of the month! Brewski is a mountain cur who has been coming to Camp for four years, and his brother Falcon is a schnauzer mix that joined his family last summer! Brewski announces their arrival at Camp every time they come in, and then Brewski plays with our big dogs while Falcon plays with our small dogs. Falcon is a cuddler, and you can often find him curled up on the bridge with his best friends Hester and Harley. Quite the ladies man! Brewski likes to snooze, but when he plays, he PLAYS. When it's time to go home, the two of them barge through the door and Brewski hops straight up on to the counter to say goodbye to the front desk counselor. We love having Brewski and Falcon here at Camp!

    Ellie is a one year old Aruban Island Dog who has been coming to Camp since last spring. Despite her small size, Ellie is full of spunk! No fence is too high for her, and she loves to remind us of that by patrolling the small and tea cup yards perched on the wall. When she first started coming to Camp, we’d find her own the loose after hopping the gate out of the yard, but now she saves her shenanigans for the new employees! Ellie is a funny little girl who truly knows what Camp is all about!

  • July 2022 Camper of the Month


    Nebo is a six month old cane corso puppy who couldn't love Camp more! When she started back in the spring time, Nebo was the life of the party in our small dog yard. Being a cane corso, she didn't spend too long back there! Nebo couldn't be a more perfect fit in our big dog yards. She plays with anyone and anything, and don't even get us started on when the pools are out! Nebo plays the whole day away and half the time is sleeping before she even goes home! Nebo has wiggled her way into each and every one of our hearts and we are so happy to have her here!

  • July 2022 Member of the Month


    Blaiz is a 5 year old husky who has been a member with us for a while now! Blaiz “you can't catch me” husky never fails to spice up the play yards! His favorite thing to do is to actively do the opposite of what we want him to do. When it's time to leave, Blaiz decides that he's not done playing, and we play chase in the yard. Blaiz loves to play with his friends, but he LOVES laying in the sun (even though he's a fluffy husky) and flopping over onto his back for some belly rubs. Blaiz is a one of a kind guy and everyday with him is a good day!

  • June 2022 Counselor of the Month


    We are excited to say that Tracey Hawk is our Employee for the month of June. Tracey is the keystone of our North Hills camp.

They are always reaching out to her with funny stories, pictures, and videos. If a dog needs a little extra TLC, Tracey is right there to be sure the dog gets whatever is needed. If she sees a dog is not eating, she will hand feed the dog. Our staff call her the dog whisperer since there are dogs that will do things for Tracey that no one else can get them to do.

  • June 2022 Member of the Month


    Bandit is a seven year old shaggy sheltie mix who has been coming to play at Camp for two years. Bandit comes into Camp expecting the royalty treatment, and that’s exactly what he gets (and deserves)! He crawls right into the front desk worker’s lap before he makes his way down to our small dog play yard. Once he’s there, he takes up residency in his cot. Every small camper knows that that’s Bandit’s spot, but he likes to share his snooze spot with his friends from time to time. Bandit is not shy about asking for pets, and we are more than happy to supply! Our day is made when Bandit walks through the front door!

  • June 2022 Camper of the Month


    Peanut the pittie will be two this summer and has been coming to Camp since last fall. Peanut is Camp’s residential friend: there isn’t a dog that Peanut won’t play with!

How could you not love those adorable ears? Between all of us, Peanut receives so much love when he’s here with us, and we have so much more to give him. We know it’s going to be a good day when Peanut zooms into the play yard!

Smitty is such a sweet boy who has definitely stolen the hearts of many counselors here, but Sarah and Xena seem to be his favorites. Smitty loves to give hugs and kisses to us when he is in daycare. His favorite time is when we get our pools out and he can play in them and eat the hose when we refill them. We have loved getting to know Smitty over the last year and look forward to many new memories we can make with him!

  • April 2022 Counselor of the Month


    We are excited to announce that Javacia Rowe is April's Camp Counselor of the month! Jay started working at our Pittsburgh North location a few months ago and has nothing but impressed up since! She is an all-around hard worker. She helps where needed, for example when a newer employee doesn’t know a dog she helps, or when someone is unsure of a task she does not hesitate to show them. She is always asking good solid questions about the dogs or camp procedures. Jay has made many close connections with our campers, but Harley is by far her favorite and we think Harley feels the same way about Jay! Some of her other favorite dogs include Steel, Falcon, Otto, and Kit Kat! Jay does not have any dogs of her own, but she does have 2 cats at home named Catsanova and Nadia. Jay's favorite thing about working at Camp is how much time we spend with the dogs, she says she learns something new here every day, and she really likes her fellow staff members! Before she came to Camp she worked as a vet and served our country for 16 years in the Army reserve. Jay truly loves Camp and all of our campers, and we are so lucky to have her in our Bow Wow family! Thank you for all your hard work and dedication to us and the pups!

We have watched her grow into the beautiful dog she is today and have made many memories with her over the years. Macie is a mellow soul who just wants love and attention from everyone she meets. Most days Macie can be caught napping in the sun, but she loves to play when her best friends Nala and Ricky are here. Macie is known around camp for the ways she falls asleep. We have caught her napping with half her body on the bridge and half off or with her tail in her mouth on her back. This girl is so goofy we always know we are in for lots of hugs and kisses when we see her walk in.

We have loved watching Drago grow up over the years, we have even spent a few birthdays with him! Obviously, snow days are his favorite, and we love watching him start the zoomie train out in the yards! Drago is a good boy, and we cannot wait to see what more memories we can make with him!

  • March 2022 Counselor of the Month

    Mike Shaffer

    We are so excited to announce that Mike Shaffer has been awarded the Camp Counselor of the Month for March! Mike has worked at our East location for 2 years and our camp has gone nowhere but up ever since. He has never called off a shift and always does what is expected of him. He goes above and beyond before his shift is over, and always comes into work with a clear and open mind. Mike has a bond with the campers like no other, and being around so many dogs that love him so much is the reason why he has such a passion for this job. One of our campers, Lila, is so attached to Mike that her owner said that if she ever had to give her away, Mike would be the one who got her. It's so amazing to see the relationships he builds with dogs and how attached they have gotten to him. That is the type of bond we want our counselors to have with our campers. Mike has a pup of his own, Molly, a German Shepherd/Golden Retriever mix who is attached to him at the hip. Some interesting things about Mike is that outside of work not only does he make his own music, he also installs swimming pools! Mike truly has put such a positive influence on our camp and we couldn't be more thankful that we have him as a part of our Camp Bow Wow family.

  • March 2022 Member of the Month

Barbara has a lot of friends, but Remi, Bailey, and Tucker are some of her favorites. When she isn’t running and doing zoomies with the other pups, she loves to get scratches from her favorite counselors Xena and Tracey.

  • March 2022 Camper of the Month

    Josie & Rosie

    Josie and Rosie are two pittie sisters who cannot contain themselves when they enter camp! They started here as grooming pups with Christina and then started coming to camp shortly after. We knew with these crazy girls from day one that they were going to be camp all-stars, so their parents made them members. When the girls get here, they immediately run outside and so laps with their friends around the yard for a solid hour before they even say hi to their human friends. Archie, Kyla, and Zoey are some of their favorite chase partners. Rosie doesn’t care who she’s chasing as long as Josie is right there with her. We love seeing these two girls every week and getting all the love from them!

They both love to run outside and chase each other around the bridge, hardly taking a breath!

Some people say he looks like a golden blur on the cameras because of how fast he runs around the yard. Luke is a very enthusiastic dog when he comes into camp, he is learning his manners though and has come a very long way. He loves every person and dog he meets but he especially loves when his friends Otis, Smitty, and Betty Lou are here and when he gets to see Matt and Xena his favorite counselors.
