At St. Clair Shores We Love Our Campers

Featured Campers

We LOVE our Campers! Check out our featured Campers at Camp Bow Wow St. Clair Shores. 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.

  • Sonny

    December Camper of the Month

    SONNY

    Age: 9 Years
    Breed: Golden Retriever
    Personality
    Sonny is a 9-year old Golden Retriever that has been a day care member since 2009. Sonny uses Camp for socialization and exercise. His exercise regime begins with cardiovascular exercise. Also known as trolloping through the front door, running through the lobby and searching the office for backstock dog treats. His cool down begins when he makes his way to the cookie jar, where he is certain all the cookies are for him and him alone. It’s important to stretch during physical exercise, so we make Sonny do his “shake” trick with both paws to stretch out those appendages before he gets a cookie. In the afternoon, Sonny does his intense legwork by doing doggie squats. Also known as half resting on the play equipment as seen in this screenshot. Sonny’s end routine involves a lot of deep breathing, almost like doggie Yoga but instead of upside down dog he prefers “on his side” dog. The deep breathing sometimes involves snoring. Sonny loves Camp almost as much as we love having him and we look forward to helping him keep in shape and flaunt that svelte golden figure!

    Everyone put their paws together for our November Camper of the Month, Pebble Rose! Pebble Rose is a gorgeous ten-month-old red Siberian Husky who has been winning our hearts over since last May! Pebble Rose is a lively Camper who expends all of her energy all day! She is always up for a game of chase with her friends. This girl has so much energy that she usually tires out the rest of her Camper friends in the morning, and by the afternoon she has to resort to attention from our Camp Counselors to play with her. Either way... Pebble Rose is content, so long as she gets to play!

If you were to tune into the Camper Cams, you might see him wooing his lady friends Sadie, Millie, and Penny!

    APRIL CAMPER OF THE MONTH

    FRECKLES

    Age: 9 Years
    Breed: English Springer Spaniel
    Personality
    Freckles has been coming to Camp since February 2010 and has been stealing Camp Counselors hearts since Day #1. Freckles enjoys Camp, but you'd never know by watching her Oscar-nominated performance at drop off. She's worked hard at training us in her process and we're willing PAW-ticipants in her daily charade, which involves her sitting and air-catching a cookie from the jar, and enjoying each and every crumb, having her leash hung up, then promptly rolling over for belly rubs. If you've ever seen a dog, laying belly up in the lobby area... it's likely Freckles, who plays dead until her belly has been sufficiently rubbed by at least three different Camp Counselors. Then, and only then,will she spontaneously recover from her death and walk to the play yard. Once she's reached the play yard, she claims her place on the play equipment, lays her head on the bridge and promptly falls asleep. In the afternoon, her want-to-be boyfriend Kona (the black lab) barks in her ear all afternoon, trying to convince her to get up and play. It doesn't work, but he tries anyway, on a daily basis. Freckles is a great sport, especially where treats are concerned, and she's happy to pose with just about anything and everything as long as the payoff is there. She even sneaks into circuit training in the morning to sneak rewards! When Freckles isn't at Camp, she's at home with her Mom and her cats, where she steals their breakfast on a daily basis or up north where she likes to hunt birds. And "by hunt", we mean lay on the sofa and stare at the birds. We look forward to Freckles flair for many more years to come!

  • Rambo

    MARCH CAMPER OF THE MONTH

    RAMBO

    Age: Almost 1 year
    Breed: Doberman Pinscher
    Personality
    Dubbed "The Evil Genius" by his Mom, this crazy Camper truly lives up to his title and make being mischievous really, really funny. Rambo's evil genius has us all confused as to whether he's predominantly evil or genius. For instance, imagine if you will that Rambo is a day care member and comes to Camp everyday, Monday - Friday. Now imagine it's Saturday morning and your Rambo's mom. You're trying to enjoy a quiet cup of coffee on the couch and in comes Rambo, barreling through the living room with his "Camp bag" in his mouth, running laps around the coffee table. No matter how much you try to convince him that it's NOT a "Camp day" he continues to try to convince you that it is and you need to take him to Camp immediately. Is he evil for interrupting coffee time or genius for being so hilarious while also being mischievous? We should have know from the first day we met him that he was going to be mischievous! I mean, after all, he smiled in his interview photo - actually smiled, teeth and all. What kind of puppy poses like that? Saying Rambo loves to play is an understatement. He's also quite the Casanova! He likes to play with pairs of blondes, preferably siblings, at the same time. Some of his favorites are Golden Retriever sisters Daisy and Lily and sisters Ellie and Lulu. He prefers the longer-haired blondes but in a pinch the shorter-haired Lab sisters Trini and Chin will do.

  • Buddy

    FEBRUARY CAMPER OF THE MONTH

    BUDDY

    Age: 1 Year
    Breed: Chiweenie
    Personality
    This little Chiweenie has quite a big personality in this adorable dapple colored body. Buddy has dual residency at Camp Bow Wow's in Brighton and Saint Clair Shores, but we know he likes us more ;-) This ferocious little beast joined level 1 training class back in March, where his #1 skill involved hiding under the chair and barking at everyone and everything. Once we had a discussion about how tough he was, we made fast friends and he turned his ferocious barking into ferocious learning and excelled at all his basic obedience commands. Buddy joined level 2 training in April where he taught a German Shepard "place" and made a new best friend forever in fellow Daschaund, Rocket (pictured above). He also showed off his leash walking skills with his fancy easy walk harness. He looks devastatingly handsome in his harness...just ask him. Buddy is about to graduate from level 3 training and has dreams of becoming a Canine Good Citizen. With a little more work on not intimidating big dogs with his enormous stature and learning that "friendly strangers" also include Men, he's well on his way to be a contributing member of canine society.

  • Ernie

    JANUARY CAMPER OF THE MONTH

    ERNIE

    Age: 1 year
    Breed: Great Dane
    Personality
    He's been called many things, Scooby Doo, the horse, the gentle giant...but his real name is Ernie K. This massive hunk of dog first darkened the doors of Camp Bow Wow during puppy social, at 12 weeks old, weighing in at a whopping 45lb. During his "growth spurt" Ernie K. gained an average of 5lb a week and currently weighs 130lbs and he's not done growing yet! Much like a baby Giraffe, Ernie K. struggled to learn how to use his massive legs, which at the time seemed to function like puppy stilts. Even at a young age, Ernie K. had a flair for the dramatic, often wailing in frustration when he fell over (which was pretty much all the time). Ernie K. generously loaned his limbs to the puppy's in class to chew on and play with, since he was on the ground anyway, with his "stilts" not working. This gentle giant often turned into the base of the puppy pile, with so many long limbs and floppy ears to chew on, he quickly became a fan favorite for all the puppies in class. Although his growth rate was unfathomable, Ernie K. never got the memo that he's a VERY large dog. He often gets himself stuck in places because he has no concept of his size, he's even tried to convince us to let him play in the teacup yard (sorry Ernie K., no dice). With a Dad that's an elementary school teacher it's no surprise that Ernie K. loves kids, even when they dress him up in ridiculous costume accessories. You'd think with his enormous size he'd be like Hercules, but instead he's more like Melman, the hypochondriac giraffe from the popular DreamWorks film Madagascar.
