Camp Bow Wow Concord
- DianeMore than a year agovery good
Visiting from out of town & thought I would just use them for 1 day. Decided to send the pups back for 2 more days. Very friendly & relaxed staff. Also very clean. Not overcrowded.

I have been taking my 3 dogs to Camp Bow Wow Concord since it first opened. I absolutely love this place and the care that my dogs get here. ( in regards to both the doggy daycare and the boarding) Over my last 18 years as a dog owner, I have been a lot of different places and in my opinion no one has a better system in place than Camp Bow Wow. I always use to worry about leaving my dogs behind when I traveled but now it’s a pleasurable experience for both me and my puppies. My dogs go spastic when I say “ready to go to CAMP” and I think that speaks volumes.
In regards to the daycare, there is a certified/trained attendant in each play area. They have different sections of play areas depending on the size and temperament of your dog. My favorite part is that they have a web based camera system in each play area that you can view at any time during the day by simply visiting their website. A lot of times when I am at work I log on to watch them playing for a few minutes. It’s awesome to see my dogs happy and playing while you’re at work. Also I should mention that on Tuesdays they have discounted daycare. On many occasions my dogs nails were trimmed while at daycare which I find to be another example of outstanding service and care. And the number one best thing about Camp Bow Wow doggy daycare is that your pups will be tired when you pick them up because they got an entire day’s worth of exercise. (plus I get a night off from walking the dogs other than the pee pee before bedtime).
Boarding works just a little different from the doggy daycare. Camp Bow Wow has staff there all week including Sundays and Holidays. If your dog is boarding there, they obviously get the free daycare but at night they get fleece-blanketed, raised beds to sleep on and a peanut butter filled kong at bedtime (if you approve that upon check-n…they will ask you ?) Something else they do that I like is they will make sure your pets get their medicine or special food diet for no additional cost. Boarding places in the past always charged me surcharges and additional fees for that sort of thing. If you have several dogs, you can request that they sleep together in one large family cabin at NO EXTRA cost….which is yet again another thing that always cost me more money in the past. (Plus the large cabins weren’t really that large at other boarding kennels). Something important worth noting is that if your board your dogs here, they have 3 mealtimes a day and when they eat, they get 1.5 hour break from daycare during that time to make sure they don’t get bloat! ( This is very important for dogs that are susceptible to bloat) I feel good about boarding at Bow Wow because my dogs get more exercise than they would ever get at a conventional kennel. I think they guarantee a certain number of hours but I’m not sure what that is but it sure beats just the bathroom walk that other kennels give.
Oh and its worth mentioning that they give you a report card of your dog’s stay at daycare or boarding with all sorts of details. Not only is this sometimes very entertaining and funny to read, it’s also shows me that the staff take time to watch and interact with each of the dogs individually. (they comment on things like behavior, dogs they liked or played with, eating habits if boarding, etc…good stuff indeed)
