[start ]The Woodlands, TX - It’s time for a Texas Two Step! Grab your pawdners and Dogsey Doe over to Camp Bow Wow for a down-home, Dog-gone Wild Grand Opening Round- Up on Saturday, January 21st from noon to 3 pm. The Premier Doggy Day and Overnight Camp®, at 27616 Commerce Oaks Drive in Oak Ridge North, has pulled all stops to guarantee a paw-stomping, tail-wagging good time for people and pups of all ages. Admission is free.
Camp owners Lee and Kristl Franklin are celebrating the grand opening of their upscale digs for dogs with typical Texan flair. “Round up all your friends, neighbors and kids – human and canine,” said Lee Franklin, “and come on down to join the fun.”
“At Camp Bow Wow, it’s all about the dogs, so we’ve planned activities exclusively for pups,” continued Kristl Franklin. “So please bring your dogs with you to the Round-Up even if they haven’t had their Camp Bow Wow interview yet.” Pups who have already passed their interview will be invited to join the doggy games in the Camp Bow Wow corrals (play yards). Those that haven’t will be asked to remain on their leash with their guardians. Counselors will be on hand to care for leashed pups while their guardians tour the Camp facility.
As an added bonus, all pups who successfully pass their interview before January 31, will be automatically entered for a chance to win a FREE YEAR of Camp services at Camp Bow Wow The Woodlands. Call for an appointment now! 832-482-2299 Go to campbowwow.com/TXgrandopening for details.

Individuals in search of a new pup-mate, look no further. Camp Bow Wow The Woodlands has invited friends from The Lone Star Animal Welfare League, Operation Pets Alive, Save A Dog and The Houston Collie Rescue to the pawty.
