Everyone is kind and loving. Our dog loves going here and can't wait. I am able to see how she is doing and there is no person who doesn't love on your dog. Great place

This place is fantastic! I love the atmosphere of the place, and my dog is always happy to be dropped off. It's a great place to drop your dog off if they have a lot of energy, and you don't have all the time in the day to play with them. It has been extremely helpful while having to work at home with two children.

After a horrific experience at another day care, we came to Camp Bow Wow. We absolutely love the people, security, on line ability to watch you pets, and someone in the area with the dogs at all times. All these things are highly important to us and each box is checked. They love our pets and everyone if really friendly. Cannot recommend more!

The staff is always so friendly it makes you want to take your fur baby there. I have only taken my baby for a nail trim which is better than any groomer has done in the past. If you haven't tried them you should.

All of the staff are friendly and always try to be accommodating. I never worry about leaving my dog there. He loves to play at Camp Bow Wow. Also, Morgan is an awesome groomer. It’s nice to be able to have multiple services available within the same facility. Prices are also very reasonable. We are big fans of Camp Bow Wow!

I love that my dog is excited to go to Camp Bow Wow. When he realizes we are there, he pulls me to get inside. And being able to access the cameras is great so that I can watch him interact with staff and other dogs. I feel so comfortable leaving my dog in the care of CBW

This was the first time our dog, Cooper, was back at camp since pre-pandemic. He was greeted with lots of hugs and rubs and we all couldn't be happier! A BIG thanks to Kim and all the staff who took such great care of him. Thank you!

Camp Bow Wow is great. My dog, Mac, loves going there to play and socialize and have a whole lot of fun. He goes for occasional daycare and also as an overnight camper. I wouldn't take him anywhere else. He also gets a full spa treatment when he's there, bath, nail trim, ears cleaned and comes home smelling great!!

I have been taking my dogs to bow wow for 11 years now and I can not say enough great things about them. The staff is amazing! They really understand each dog’s personality and treat them accordingly. Our oldest has become very crabby in his old age and his grooming had to be done in two days instead of one-they get it!! I love how they greet our dogs when they visit and the excellent care they give. Thank you Camp Bow Wow for all you do????

We had recently moved and I'm literally sad to be far from this place. I love my dog and this place was one of his all time enjoyments. "Camp bow wow," he'd jump up like he gets to open Christmas presents. The staff are very friendly and you can tell a bunch of dog lovers. A bunch of great services provided for good pricing. My pup has been going there for years, boarding, day camp, showering and grooming. Outstanding place to take your dog!

My dog reacts like a 7 years old going to Disney World for the first time every time we board him here.

Camp Bow Wow is great and we love it! I have used both day camp and overnight boarding and I feel comfortable whenever my pup is in your care. The staff is friendly and great with dogs. I also have the dog groomed there and she looks so cute when she comes home. Sandy gets so excited when we pull into the parking lot of Camp Bow Wow that she is usually pulling me to the door to get in and see her friends. As an added bonus, she is exhausted after a day at camp and sleeps well!

We've been going to Camp Bow Wow McHenry for a couple years and my English Bulldog absolutely loves it. The staff is amazing, they either already know about the breed or have learned about it. They know that a bulldog doesn't do well in the heat and needs a little more monitoring in the summer. Their facilities are always clean and welcoming. Anytime there's been an issue I can call and my concerns are always taken seriously. We have also used the boarding services and the ability to rent a space where I can see my dog anytime via the cameras is uber comforting. We tried a couple other day cares before coming across Camp Bow Wow, it's a little further of a drive than we wanted but it's worth it. We recently added another bulldog to our family and he will be going to camp as soon as he's ready! Pre-covid training classes were offered. We've taken each class including a couple personal one on one training. The trainer (Alysa Deets) is hands down the best of all time. My dog will honestly do anything she asks her to. With her help and additional training we were able to complete the TDI test (therapy dog).I could go on all day about how much I love CBW. If I could give more than a 10 I would!

Our dog absolutely loves his time at camp! And we love knowing he is having fun while we are away.

We have been fans of camp for a long time. Convenient, good employees, friendly but things are changing with their prices. The nail dremmel used to be $11 now it is $15. It takes 3 minutes to complete and yet that just raised it 27%. We are curious what changed? How does this occur? Their camp is not good with pricing either. For their best deal it is $405 to prepay for 15 full days of camp.. for comparison, Paws on Pingree in Crystal Lake does $300 MONTHLY membership. It includes unlimited camp and a free dog wash. That comes out to $300 for 30 days at Paws on Pingree or $810 for 30 days at Camp bow wow.

This place is not only pet friendly but dog owner friendly too as the staff is personal with everyone and cares a lot to maintain dog and owner happy. Easily take last minute requests for grooming and changes in routine. Thanks Bow Wow Staff

Awesome place, staff 5 star, I pull in the parking lot and my 2 dog's fight on who gets out first, and run to the door, get inside right to THEIR room

What's not to love! Gus was adopted from Camp Bow Wow and continues to visit on a regular basis. When I was on a trip to Canada, he stayed it a luxury suite with all his favorites and his own bed. I loved being able to check on him 24/7 and see he was happy! He gets his grooming there. He doesn't like being brushed but the groomers are patient and do an excellent job!

Our dog Lexie loves being there. We watch her on the cams and she loves to socialize. Even after moving to Crystal Lake, we still bring her to Mc Henry! Thank you!

Web cams so I can watch my dog play. No other company offers this. We use their boarding, day care, and grooming services. Everything is top notch. My dog loves going to CBW. We can't call it by name because he will go crazy as soon as he hears it.
