Camp Bow Wow, a North American doggy day care and boarding franchise, has opened its 200th Camp, marking a major milestone for the growing brand.
Camp Bow Wow Lexington East, the first Camp Bow Wow location in Kentucky, is owned by James and Lisa Culp. The Camp welcomed the community and its first canine Campers this week.
“We congratulate James and Lisa on the opening of their beautiful new Camp and thank them for being part of our 200th Camp celebration. Fewer than 10 percent of franchise brands ever reach 200 locations, so this is an incredible milestone for us,” said Camp Bow Wow President Julie Turner. “As we continue growing, we remain laser-focused on our most important mission – making dogs happy by providing a fun and enriching experience and giving pet parents peace of mind knowing their beloved furry family members are safe and having a great time.”
To celebrate the 200th Camp milestone, Camp Bow Wow is holding a giveaway for its followers on Facebook and Instagram, with five winners each receiving $200 toward doggy day care and boarding services. Entries will be accepted through 11:59 p.m. PDT on Sunday, April 3.
Founded in 2000, Camp Bow Wow offers all-inclusive care for pups by providing an exciting and safe environment for all-day play, socialization and overnight stays in 40 states and Canada. All Camp Counselors are trained in dog behavior and certified in pet first aid and CPR. Camps also offer live webcams so pet parents can check on their pups from anywhere.
The brand has been ranked for 11 consecutive years in the Franchise 500 as the pet care category has grown into a Top 20 franchise category. It has also won numerous awards in Franchise Update Media’s Franchise Innovation Awards in the past three years, including Franchise Leadership and Development Leader of the Year.
In addition to reaching the 200-location mark, Camp Bow Wow has franchise agreements in place to open 60 more Camps in the coming years and anticipates increasing units by 35 percent over the next three years.
The company is actively recruiting new franchise owners nationwide. It seeks dog-loving franchise owners who align with its mission of making dogs happy while building a successful business. Information for potential franchise owners is available here.
