At Pittsburgh SW We Love Our Campers
We LOVE our Campers! Check out our featured Campers at Camp Bow Wow Pittsburgh SW. These pups love to play all day in our fun, safe and social environment, and receive lots of love and attention from our Certified Camp Counselors® whether they’re in for day care or boarding.
May Counselor of the MonthKira
We are happy to say May’s Camp Counselor of the month is Kira. Kira has been with camp for 3 and half years and enjoys being able to see all her favorite campers (Reagan, Ava, Fritz, and more) after a long day of nursing classes. She says that working at camp has been a great job for her while in school. Kira also has two pets of her own at home named Jax and Lola. One thing that many people don’t known about Kira is that she is a pro bowler and enjoys beating her boyfriends in game when she has some free time.
May Camper of the MonthFaye Di Gregory
Our Camper of the month for May is Faye Di Gregory! Fay is a spunky 10 month old Weimaraner that has been coming to play at camp since she was only 4 months old! Faye loves coming to camp. She has a ton of friends that she will romp in the play yards for hours with. We are convinced she never gets tired! Congratulations on being Camper of the Month, Faye!
May Member of the MonthTucker
Tucker Mansfield is our Member of the Month! Tucker is a very intelligent 1.5 year old Border Collie! His favorite camp activity is playing fetch during his enrichment sessions. He loves when you throw the ball high in the air so he can jump and catch it! We are so excited that he loves coming to camp so much because we love him lots! Congratulations on being the Member of the Month, Tucker!
April Camper of the MonthTito
Tito is a 4 year old Bernese Mountain Dog who has been coming to play with us since he was only 6 months old!! This extremely handsome fella loves to lounge across the top of the bridge, but he'll never pass up a chance to play with anyone who wants to! And although he loves the snowy season, he can't wait to lay in our doggy pools when summer finally rolls around!
April Member of the MonthZeke
Zeke is a 3 year old Great Dane that has been coming to Camp since last year! You can either find him howling at his favorite Camp Counselor for extra attention or romping around with his best buddy Kit in the play yard! Weighing in well over 100 pounds, Zeke is the definition of a gentle giant!
April Counselor of the MonthJayacia
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!
March Camper of the MonthPeanut
Peanut is a 6-month-old Goldendoodle who is a relatively new Camper! She loves to come in and hang out with all of her small dog friends, and is always getting extra love from our counselors because she is just so gosh darn cute at 20 lbs! If you're looking for Peanut here at Camp, you can always find her with best buds, Sandy and Lexie, the Sheltie sisters, running around the play yard!
March Member of the MonthApollo
Apollo is a 2-year-old Labrador Retriever who has been coming to Camp Bow Wow for one and half years! Apollo absolutely loves coming for daycare to romp around with his friends outside! His absolute favorite thing to do here is roll around in the snow during the winter and splash in the pool in the summer! His best friend to play with is our new Camper Kano the German Shepherd, and Kit the Labrador Retriever!
March Counselor of the MonthMike 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.
February Camper of the MonthJulia
Julia, our sweet 10-year-old Bullmastiff has been coming to Camp since she was 4 years old, always staying in our Luxury Suite for every stay! Julia loves getting extra snuggles from our Camp Counselors, who love to fill her Suite up with fluffy blankets when she stays! We love having her here, and she has a blast staying with us as well!
February Member of the MonthAngelo
Angelo is a 7-year-old Boxer and Pit Bull mix, who has been coming to day camp ever since he was only a 1-year-old pup! You know you’ve been accepted if Angelo comes over so say hello, he only lets the best of the bunch be his bud! This sweetheart loves to hang out with his friends at Camp, and never wants to leave!
February Counselor of the MonthKim
Kim is a cornerstone of our Highland Park location. Her devotion and dedication are second to none. Her ability to connect to both our clients and campers alike is remarkable. Her passion is shown through her care and attentiveness to all of our campers. Our campers know her by name and abound with delight when they know she'll be in! She is the loving mom to her pets Penny, Ninnie and Nellie. An exceptional trainer, Kim has helped create an environment of understanding and goes out of her way to help her clients with their needs. Kim’s goal is to become an evaluator for the AKC Star Puppy and K-9 Good Citizen programs. Kim has enjoyed working with and helping dogs. Prior to working at Camp Bow Wow, she rescued dogs off the streets while living in Arizona. A brilliant mother, outstanding trainer, and supportive colleague; her professional and unwavering spirit has helped Highland Park become the success it is today!
January Camper of the MonthT.J.
T.J. is an 8-year-old Labrador mixed with sweetness! T.J. has been coming to Camp Bow Wow since he was 2 years old! If he is not curled up in his cabin taking a nap, you can always find him perched atop the bridge in the play yard, a spot he is unlikely to give up! T.J. is the spunkiest of the bunch, and if you startle him (as he is deaf) he’ll let loose an almighty howl! We love you T.J.!
January Members of the MonthAce & Harper
Ace is a 3-year-old German Shepherd who has been coming to Camp for almost that long! Harper is a 1-and-a-half-year-old German Shepherd who has been coming to daycare since she was a small pup!

January Counselor of the MonthAmanda
Amanda is an absolute excellent camp counselor! She has 3 dogs of her own, including two Cane Corsos and an Australian Shepherd. Dogs are not only her first love, but a huge passion of hers. She is currently pursuing a dog training certificate and is working on her masters in dog training! Within the next year, Amanda will soon be another addition to our training program here at camp. She also does a multitude of different events and shows with her two corsos, Ebony and Vixen, who have won quite a few titles in their time! Amanda is one of our most driven employees, and just recently got promoted to shift supervisor! She is amazing with behavior modification, and is so good with helping each and every dog to get comfortable here at camp. She is so devoted to her job and gives the dogs her utmost trust and patience. We couldn't ask for much more than Amanda, as she already has everything we could ask for and more!

She even bakes special cookies for the campers. If you’re dog comes to the Southwest Camp (Greentree), Catey most likely has told you something fun your dog did at camp that day. Catey truly appreciates her co-workers, but mostly she loves that the customers trust us with the beautiful furry souls. She spends her day making sure these dogs love coming to camp as much as she loves having them at camp. Catey has too many favorite campers to list.
