We Love Our Campers
Featured Campers, In-Home Pets & Training Dogs
We LOVE our Campers! Check out our featured Campers at Springfield East. 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.
July Camper of the MonthSpock & Missy
These two sweet pups are long time Campers from East and West! Spock and Missy are Chihuahua mixes with great personalities. All of us know when they arrive at Camp as Missy's favorite thing to do is bark to greet all her friends bright and early; She gets so excited for Camp! Spock loves attention from the Camp Counselors, especially scratches behind his ears! He likes to hop up on the ramp to survey the play yard. One of our favorite things to do is read their bedtime stories - they each have their own PJs that we put on and they usually fall asleep during the story from how relaxed they are! While they are starting a new adventure in Arizona, we are so thankful to have had them as part of our Pack! They will be greatly missed and we sent them on their way with lots of love and snuggles. It's never goodbye, it's bark ya later!

We are paws-itively excited to introduce you to our June Camper of the Month, Cy! Cy is an easy-going twelve year old Terrier mix. We love having him as a Camper! Cy has a calm demeanor and loves to be snuggled and curl up in our Camp Counselor's laps. You can find Cy hanging out in either our Tea Cup play yard or Play Yard 1. He loves to chill on the play equipment and survey the yard while all the dogs run around him. Cy is a super sweet pup when he gets groomed by Delani - we think he thinks he's getting a massage the whole time! Congratulations Cy, we will be sure to give you extra lovins' this month (and every month)! ❤
May Camper of the MonthBriggs
Congratulations to our May Camper of the Month, Briggs! Briggs is a special boy and we love seeing him for day camp Monday - Friday.

You can find him playing with his best furiend Nova in play yards 1 & 2. He also has the best smile! He does love his lunch time nap as that gives him more energy for afternoon play! It's fun to cuddle with Briggs when he is sleepy ❤ We love you, Briggs!
April Camper of the MonthLily Rose
April showers bring flowers early! Lily Rose is a sweet almost three-year-old Labradoodle who has been part of the East pack since we opened! She also wanted to see what all the woof was about at our West location. While Lily Rose is shy at first, she will quickly warm your heart with her good obedience and cuddle time on the play yard equipment. She is always ready for extra pets and ear scratches! We love it when she smiles as she brightens our day any time she is at Camp! Congratulations, Lily Rose!se

We would love to introduce you to our March Camper of the Month, Lita! She is nine-year-old Wire-Haired Terrier.

February Camper of the MonthBailey
Love is in the air this month, especially when Bailey walks through our doors! Bailey is a precious Poodle-mix who has been a Camper for four years! Bailey joined our Pack over at the West location and was such a great fit for East, he decided to transition over here! We affectionately call him the "King of Tea Cup." He loves claiming his throne (the top of the play yard ramp) and hanging out there during play time. You wouldn't be able to tell if you met him, but he is almost ten years old! Bailey ages so gracefully. He is always up for a lap cuddle session and scratches behind the ears. Congratulations, Bailey! We love you!
January Camper of the MonthNellie
We're ringing in the New Year with one of our newer Campers, Nellie! Nellie is a super sweet rescued Chihuahua mix who joined our Pack in November 2019. And we are so glad she did! Nellie makes furry friends instantly and loves to romp around with our playful pups. You can find Nellie playing with some of her best furiends Briggs, Lolly, and Sadie in Play Yard 1 on the Camper Cams! Nellie is as equally cuddly as she is a socialite! She loves belly rubs and hopping up on your lap when she can. Nellie brings us joy and brightens our day each time she joins us for Day Care! Congratulations, Nellie
December Camper of the MonthMaverick
Check out our Happy Camper of the Month, Maverick! Maverick is a six-year-old Irish Setter. We love having Maverick visit us at Camp! He is blind but that doesn't stop him from showing us his sweet personality. Maverick loves to smile and smell around the Yard. He enjoys the calmer energy in the Play Yard as that allows him to meet and make more furiends than ever! Catch him on the cameras in Play Yard 2 and he'll even play around on the big blue ramp! The Camp Counselors give him extra ear and butt scratches as he is one of our favorite big guys around Camp. Congrats, Maverick!
November Camper of the MonthSadie
We couldn't have picked a sweeter pup for our November Camper of the Month! Sadie has been a #HappyCamper since she joined our Pack back in April. She was just a fluffy puppy back then and has since blossomed into everypawdy's favorite pup! Sadie is a social butterfly and loves every dog she meets. Her BFF is Benny (pictured above). Sadie also enjoys all the attention from the Camp Counselors in the Yard. She will never shy away from a good ear scratch or belly rub. If you tune into the Camper Cams, she is usually romping around in Play Yard 1! We love when Sadie walks in through the door; she immediately gives us a fluffy teddy bear hug! Congrats, Sadie!
October Camper of the MonthJasper
Jasper is a spunky lil’ Yorkie who LOVES Camp! He has been a Day Camper with us since June of this year and we are so thankful to be able to play with him Monday-Friday! Jasper weighs a whopping 5 pounds, so he plays in our Tea Cup Yard. He loves attention so when the Camp Counselors are in the Yard, he is the first pup to jump up on their lap when they sit down to cuddle. Jasper’s Camp BFFs are Winston and Cooper! All three love to romp around the yard and amp up the energy! The Camp Counselors love Jasper’s big ears and the fact that his itty bitty tail is always wagging at full speed (peep the middle photo). Our Tea Cup yard wouldn’t be the same without Jasper and we adore him for that! Congrats, Jasper!
September Camper of the MonthCobber
Check out that sweet smile on Cobber! He has been a Happy Camper with us since we opened East! Cobber frequently comes for both day care and boarding. We are so thankful to be able to play with him so often! Depending on the day, you can find Cobber playing in Play Yard 1 or 2. His tail is almost always wagging. We love his giant smile and the fact that he has a very boop-able nose! One of his Camp BFFs is Spotty the Beagle (pictured below). Cobber loves all of his Camp Counselors and is very affectionate towards us. He has the best smile and loves getting all the pets. Congrats, Cobber! We love you!

We always give her lots of love and affection because she is just the best pup! You can usually find Samantha playing in Play Yard 1 or in the Tea Cup yard. Her Camp BFFs are Winston and Sadie! We are so lucky to be able to play with Samantha Monday - Friday for day care! We can see where Samantha gets her sweetness from- her dad! Steve is always sure to greet us every morning and is such a loving dog-dad! Congratulations, Samantha!
July Camper of the MonthRowdy
Rowdy is as sweet as summer so he was an easy choice for our July Camper of the Month! Rowdy is a fourteen-year-old Labrador Retriever mix. His name is Rowdy for a reason; despite his older age, he still has quite a bit of pep in his step and enjoys getting rowdy with some of the other pups! Rowdy was a West Camper for years but when East opened, he decided to come see what all the woof was about since we specialize with senior pups. We are so thankful he joined our Pack! This sweet senior pup can be found playing in Play Yard 2. Rowdy stays with us when his parents go away on vacation. Some of his Camp BFFs are Jaci, Malone, and Rex! Every day that Rowdy is at Camp is a bright and happy day! Congrats Rowdy!
June Camper of the MonthBenny
Throw ya paws up in the air for Benny! He is our June Camper Of The Month! Benny is a playful one-and-a-half year old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel mix. Benny is an East OG as he started coming for Day Care soon after we opened in March! Every time Benny comes in for Day Care, all of the Camp Counselors make sure to pet and love on him. He is super soft and just the sweetest lil’ guy. When he’s in the Play Yard, (on the Camper Cams you can usually find him in Indoor Play Yard 1) he is romping around tail fully wagging. Benny’s Camp BFFS are Snowball, Winston, and Sadie. Benny’s mom always lets us know that his favorite place is Camp! All of us at Camp Bow Wow are super thankful for Benny and his mom. We love them both so much and couldn’t image Camp without them.
May Camper of the MonthJake The Dog
Jake The Dog is a very special Camper we have to tell you about! Jake joined our Pack over at the West location back in 2016. He is a fourteen-year-old Beagle/Bassett mix. Recently, Jake The Dog stopped by the East location to sniff out the new Camp and he is in love! He visits us often for boarding so we get to spend a lot of time with him, thankfully! He definitely doesn’t let his age stop him from having a blast at Camp. Jake The Dog gets so excited to come to Camp that he trots (his way of running) all the way to the Play Yards to meet his furiends to play all day. He makes furiends easily but some of his favorite pals are Stormy, Lupine, & Lollie! Our favorite thing about Jake The Dog, besides his name (he is THE dog of course) is his happy-go-lucky personality and is as sweet as can be. He loves attention and has a special spot on his side where he will kick up his leg when we pet him; it’s so cute! Congratulations on being the Camper Of The Month, Jake The Dog. We all love you so much! 🐾
April Camper of the MonthDandy
We have a very special girl to introduce you to! Dandy is a five-year-old Catahoula. She first visited Camp at our West location in January of 2019 but then switched over to our East location when she found out we're a lower energy Camp! Dandy is quite possibly the most perfect name for her - she has the sweetest demeanor in the Play Yards. She loves every Camp Counselor and all the Campers! Her Camp BFFs are Buddy and Ellie. At the mention of the word "Camp" her mom tells us she gets very excited and starts to wag her tail and butt! We are so thankful to have Dandy as part of our Pack! Congratulations on being East's first ever Camper of the Month!
