Dog Grooming Services
Come Back to a Clean, Happy Pup
What’s better than picking up a happy dog from Camp? Picking up a clean and happy dog from Camp! Camp Bow Wow® provides nail trimming and bathing services that will leave your pup looking and smelling their best. Bathing them on your own is often time-consuming, exhausting, messy, and stressful for both you and your four-legged family member. Rather than trying to do the job yourself after a long, tiring day, why not let us take care of it during your dog’s stay?
With dog grooming areas specially designed for your pup’s comfort, Camp Bow Wow can take this off your to-do list. By adding a bath to your pup’s stay, you can cuddle with a squeaky-clean pup when you get home.

What kind of grooming services do you offer?

Do your prices differ for dogs of different sizes?
Yes. Your dog’s size and the length of his or her coat will affect our grooming prices. We believe it's important to accommodate your dog's unique needs with extra care and attention where needed. Don’t hesitate to inquire with your local Camp for more information.
Do you offer grooming packages?
Contact your local Camp for details. Our grooming prices and packages vary by location so be sure to give your local dog groomers a call!
When should you start grooming a puppy?
Puppies are typically ready for their first grooming around the 10-12 week mark. Your puppy should have their first round of shots prior to their grooming appointment.
How to prepare a puppy for their first grooming?
There are a few steps that you can take to begin acclimating your puppy before their first grooming experience. This includes:
- Regular brushing
- Handle their face, ears, and mouth
- Regular baths
- Expose them to the sound of scissors and a hair dryer
Taking these extra steps can help to prepare your puppy and establish a trusting experience with their groomer at Camp Bow Wow.
What are the requirements for my dog to be groomed at Camp?
Your dog must be up to date on the Rabies, Distemper, and Bordetella vaccines. Other vaccinations may also be needed, depending on your local Camp’s requirements. If you are only visiting Camp Bow Wow for our grooming services, you do not need to pass the Camper Interview process.

Why Dog Nail Trimming Is Sometimes Best Left to Professionals
Obviously, trimming dog nails doesn’t have to be done by professionals. Many pet parents are well-equipped and skillful at keeping nails the correct length. But just as many people are either uncomfortable with it or simply want groomers to handle it.
Here are a few reasons to leave dog toe nail trimming to professionals.
- If you have trouble getting your pup comfortable, bring them in. The environment at Camp Bow Wow is designed to feel like a vacation for your canine.
- There’s the risk of pain and bleeding if you cut the quick.
- Cutting too short makes every future attempt much harder.
- Routines and reinforcement help. If your dog associates nail trimming with visiting us, the structure may help them.
