    Drew has lived almost his whole life in Baton Rouge, except for 5 1/2 years when he lived in California. While in California, he worked at several different vets. He started as a kennel caretaker and moved up to being a vet tech. One day, Drew transported a dog from the animal hospital to a Camp Bow Wow in the area. It was then that he realized this type of business existed - a place where a dog can go to just have a good time. Drew then decided to move back to Baton Rouge and start his own franchise. This Camp Bow Wow was opened in August of 2013. Drew started Camp Bow Wow to be able to give dogs what they need to live a happy and healthy life - a positive place where a dog can truly be a dog. It provides a safe and happy place for their dogs to come play and stay and parents can leave them here and feel confident that they will be safe, taken care of, and have a great time.

    What I love most about my job: Being able to give dogs a place where they can be happy and healthy - a place where a dog can truly be a dog.
    My dogs: Rocco and Rhodie (Golden Retrievers)

    Brandon is a Baton Rouge local, Louisiana State University alum, and lifelong dog owner. He joined our team at the beginning of 2018 as a Camp Counselor while attending LSU. His love for the campers is evident in his attention to detail and unwillingness to compromise when it comes to providing the best experience to our campers. During any free time at Camp, Brandon can be found snuggling with and talking to our campers in their cabins.

    What I love most about my job: My favorite moments at Camp Bow Wow are when I can make a difference in helping a shy or unsure camper come out of his shell. Helping a camper gain confidence and grow socially is the most rewarding feeling.

    My Dogs: Fred (Labrador mix) and Maggs (West Highland Terrier)
