    We came up with the idea of opening a doggy daycare about 8 years ago when we started taking our sweet energetic boxer puppy to a nearby doggy daycare. We were so happy to find a place where our pup could have fun and play all day with her friends while we were at work. I (Roxanne) am a registered veterinary technician and have worked in the veterinary field for 25 years. My husband (Joe) and I have been animal lovers our whole lives and our four legged kids are the center of our lives. We have a Jack Russell named Dillon, two Boxers named Luke & Leia, two horses and some chickens. My mother (Rita) shares our passion for animals and has an adorable Boston Terrier named “Annie” and a Dalmatian mix named “Miley”. We visited several Camp Bow Wow locations before deciding on going the franchise route. We were so impressed with the careful attention to detail and dedication to provide a safe and fun environment for dogs that we knew Camp Bow Wow was the perfect choice. This is definitely a family affair and we along with our wonderful and dedicated camp counselors have so much fun providing a safe and interactive environment for our happy pups!
