Summer is approaching fast and many of us will be taking well-deserved vacations and extra long weekends. As much as we like to travel with our dogs, sometimes traveling with them is just not possible. When the question of what to do with your pup while you are gone comes up, Heidi Ganahl, CEO and Founder of Colorado-based Camp Bow Wow, would like people to consider the benefits of keeping your family friend at one of the Denver metro area Camp Bow Wow (CBW)locations.
Peace of Mind – Camp Bow Wow is a cage-less environment during the day, which means your dog won’t always be cooped up in a kennel. CBW also allows “Live Camper Cams,” which provide virtual access to view your pup via an iPhone application or the CBW website. No matter where you are you can always check on your furry friend.
Socialization – Dogs will learn to play and interact together in a fun, safe and meaningful way. CBW locations offer large indoor and outdoor play areas, allowing for socialization between pets. CBW understands the benefits of social interaction and exercise knowing that socialized dogs become calmer, friendlier, more affectionate and able to adapt to new situations better.
No Lonely Dogs – With CBW overnight options, pet owners can be assured that their family member will have human contact while they are gone. Dogs have access to trained dog specialists during their stay and can help alleviate separation anxiety that some pets may encounter.
The Doggie Spa – Many facilities, such as the Golden location, offer a la carte services such as grooming and dog training. Not only is your pup in good care, but he or she can be clean and beautiful upon check out. Consider it a doggie spa.
Keeping You and Your Dog happy – When seeking overnight accommodations for your dog, take the time to visit a few facilities near you in advance and be sure to ask questions. You want to know all the policies and procedures before leaving your dog at any facility. Knowing that your pet is in a happy and safe environment while you’re gone will ensure a relaxing, stress-free vacation. CBW locations allow potential clients to visit during regular hours and will provide answers to all questions.
Camp Alternatives – If you prefer your dog to have all the comforts of home, Home Buddies is CBW’s in-home pet service. Home Buddies provides dog walking, daytime and overnight care, poop scoop cleanups and administering care to special needs pets. Home Buddies will also provide care for newborn pups, elderly or infirm dogs, cats, birds, and even fish, basically any animals who aren’t eligible to attend a camp.
There are several locations in the Denver/West Metro area including Camp Bow Wow in Golden, Littleton, Denver Lodo and Denver Central. Denver Lodo also provides Home Buddies care. All locations abide by the Camp Bow Wow philosophy that started back in 2003: “It’s all about the dogs!”
