Camp Bow Wow® Signs 200th Franchise

Doggy Day Care Company Signs 200th Franchise

BOULDER, CO--(Marketwire - January 22, 2008) - Top dog day camp and pet boarding company Camp Bow Wow's paw print just got bigger with the signing of its 200th franchise of doggy daycare and overnight camps.

By late next year, lucky pups in Beaufort/Hilton Head, S.C. will be running with the pack at the nation's Premiere Doggy Day and Overnight Camp®, where All Day Play® is the order of the day and nighttime brings cozy cots, campfire treats and soft classical music to lull the dogs to sleep.

A focus on fun and safety has helped Camp Bow Wow® dog day camps grow from one lone Denver dog day care center in 2000, to more than 52 locations in 36 states and Canada, with more sites opening every month. When founder, CEO and Top Dog Heidi Flammang opened that first camp, she never dreamed her concept would grow beyond a few area locations. When she sold the first franchise three years later, she began to see Camp Bow Wow's potential for growth.

"As we grow, it's been great to see how many franchisees and their customers share my passion," Flammang said. "New camps are built with the same simple premise as the first, truly making Camp Bow Wow pet boarding and doggy day camp a place where a dog can be a dog."

All Camp Bow Wow locations are staffed with Certified Camp Counselors®, trained in Pet First Aid, Pet CPR and dog behavior. The dog day camps boast one counselor for every 15 dogs, and dogs are separated into play groups based on their size and temperament. Little dogs and elderly pups have a lounge set aside for them to retire to when the action gets to be too much. All camps are equipped with Web-based Camper Cams(SM), so pet parents, can watch their furry loved ones from their home or work computers.

By last year, doggy daycare had grown into a $500 million business, as more consumers catered to their furry companions in new ways. In 2006, American pet parents spent about $38 billion on products and services for their canine kids. Camp Bow Wow already has a presence in South Carolina, with a location in Greenville and two more planned in Charleston and Columbia.
