LOVE LOVE LOVE this place. My girl Kookie is a lab husky pomeranian mix and I have ENCOURAGED HOWLING AND BARKING from day ONE!!! Welp I swore her howler was broken.... NOPE NOT AT ALL. All the dogs here have showed her the howling is natural and it not just your crazy mom trying to get you to do it. She has come out of her shell so much since coming to Camp Bow Wow. I love being able to glance at the cameras to see her completely enjoying herself and being a crazy dog! Thank you to ALL the staff and the dog dog friends she has made at here!!!

Camp is the best! My pup always comes home tired and ready to go back for more. We love the friendly front desk staff, the camp counselors always loving on the dogs, the sense of community and the awesome pictures across all social media platforms! Woof woof!

Alex loved Camp! As soon as we get close he starts to full body wiggle and yip with excitement. He always has a great day playing with his friends and comes home TIRED! The counselors are great and really love the dogs.

Camp Bow Wow exceeded our expectations with our introductory visit. They were professional in meeting with us and were caring in their interaction with our pups. We can’t wait to use them for future daycare and boarding.

My pup Ruby loves going to camp to play with her furriends and see all of her fave counselors. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming and they take such good care of her during both day camp and her overnight stays.

Super attentive. Thorough in making sure the environment is safe and healthy. I liked being able to watch the live stream. Clients can see CBW staff actually interacts with the dogs; you're not just warehousing them while they are there. The follow up was fantastic. We'll be sending Sherman to camp for the weekend soon! A bit pricey, but you get what you pay for.

I absolutely love the level of knowledge and care the staff has for dogs. I was concerned about my Star jumping and was calmed by the staff knowing that she is a puppy (very large puppy). They also were not intimidated by her barking when she wanted attention.The way to enter and leave is also very impressive with the little area to bring the pups into while you wait for them to go in or be brought out.The ability to watch her on the app and make reservations without having to go online is an added plus.I am over the top excited and enthusiastic about Star's stays at Camp Bow Wow!!! I'm already talking to my son about bringing his Cocker Spaniel there as well.

Camp Bow Wow is clean and no bad smells like some other places. The Staff is very attentive with the dog's and dog Owners. I love the cameras, so I can check on my dog while she is there. And most importantly my dog Lily loves going there.

Camp Bow Wow in Columbia has been amazing for my 9 month old puppy. Rigby loves going and she has made some great friends. The staff could not be nicer and the facility is clean. They are responsive to reservations and request. My puppy comes home exhausted and happy. Camp Bow Wow is the best!

My dog loves spending time at Camp Bow Wow. We send him on days when we know we will have busy evenings and he enjoys getting to play all day. He comes home happily exhausted and we don’t feel bad about obligations after work. The staff is so friendly and they treat him very nice. I have a problem receiving confirmation emails, but other than that minor inconvenience we have no complaints. We had older dogs we used to take to Camp Bow Wow also and when they passed away we received the sweetest card from the staff. We are very pleased with the service and will continue to bring our pup here to enjoy himself a few days a week!

Best boarding in Howard County. They are so friendly and the dogs get out and play in the play yard regularly. More expensive than other options, but my dog comes home happy and is not scared to go in there, which says a lot. Haven't really tried the doggie daycare, but I have heard good things about it from friends.

Kai so misses Camp Bow Wow since we moved out of the area. I bring him a couple times a month & he gets excited before we even pull up. . .jumps over me to get out of the car to go inside. . .he loves playing, is treated like family, and comes home bubbling with happiness & TIRED (which makes me happy).

I've been very impressed by the services at Camp Bow Wow. My dog enjoys his time there and the staff are very professional. I think their prices are fair as well. I also love the dog cams!

I wish I can give them negative stars. This is the worst boarding place for dogs ever!!!!!!!!!!! I boarded my dog there for over a week and they did not feed my dog half of her food and when I asked them to give her a bath, they did not give her a bath and charged me regardless. When I called the staff to complain, they were very rude to me over the phone and did not want to get me a refund!! They also told me if I did not like it, I should not come back again. Please do NOT take your dogs there if you care about their health and well-being.

I cannot say enough good things about Camp Bow Wow in Columbia! The staff are always friendly and most importantly, happy to see our dog! During the onboarding process they were very informative about how to ease our dog into the doggy daycare world. Our dog has a sensitive stomach and is a little socially awkward so we started her with some half days. She LOVED it so we moved to full days and boarding. We enjoy seeing her play on the cameras. We even like when she comes home smelling like dog because that’s a sign she had fun playing with her friends. Fortunately, Camp Bow Wow also offers spa services so our dogs gets a bath there and even gets her teeth brushed! Honestly, this is the best one stop shop if you have a spoiled pup like us!

My dog Auggie has loved camp! He’s an older dog and I was so nervous about how he’d be around other young, wild & free dogs. Ha! But Camp Bow Wow’s incredible staff did a tremendous job making Auggie feel right at home! Before Camp Bow Wow, Auggie tolerated other dogs but was a little hesitant to play. He’s been to 2 full day camps and one full weekend so far. Already his separation anxiety is much better, he is more comfortable around strangers, and is eager to go near & play with other dogs! Auggie is a rescue mix of a gazillion breeds and I have no idea how old he is! I think he’s an old man. ;) But Camp Bow Wow has been so, so good for him! We’ll be back regularly to get his socialization in! Thank you to the incredible staff who love on my dog when I’m out of town & at work. We wuff you guys!!! ????

TL;DR Camp Bow Wow offers lots of individual dog care options, loves every dog, and will go the extra mile to make sure each puppy parent can rest easy! We love how happy Bucky is to go to Camp Bow Wow! It's a testament to the bounty of affection and attention each counselor gives to every camper. There is no need for us to be anxious about how Bucky is doing throughout the day, either. Between the daily pictures on social media and the ability to check-in on the live camp cams, we can always see how much fun he's having. This is especially helpful when we have to travel and he has an extended stay at Camp. We still miss him, of course, but we can rest easy knowing that he has the best of care while we're away. We can also set up some one-on-one playtime as an extra treat (just him and a counselor) or try out their new peanut butter Picasso puppy paintings! The availability of grooming on-site is an added bonus. We used to take Bucky to a popular pet chain for grooming, but now we just get him a puppy spa day as we like to call it - a full day of play followed by a nail trim, teeth cleaning, a bath, and some fresh cologne (typically blueberry or lavender). On the puppy parent side of the house, the staff and counselors are always very courteous, kind, polite, and helpful! We have never had a negative interaction or experience at Camp Bow Wow. They keep us apprised of Bucky's behavior and let us know if an illness is spreading in the community (whether or not it has impacted any campers yet). This is especially helpful when Bucky needs a vet visit, as it provides a more holistic picture for us to relay. All in all, we love everything about Camp Bow Wow and would recommend it to anyone seeking open-play doggie day care! We will definitely keep going here and will bring any future pups along.

Our 1.5yo GSP needed a place to exercise and socialize, and loves his time at Camp Bow Wow. Usually nothing tires him out but after a day of romping around, he eats dinner and goes right to bed with no suggestion. He seems to love the counselors and doesn't even think about us as he trots off to play. The cameras are a plus but mostly we appreciate the attention the counselors give each dog and situation.

Maizy is my first pup and she is a true quarantine dog. She is quite attached to me and the folks at Camp Bow Wow were able to make her feel comfortable and happy! I am so glad I chose Camp Bow Wow and look forward to assimilating her with the other dogs. Thank you for also making me feel okay leaving her there on her first day!

My dogs have just started going there, and they're a little shy, but Camp Bow Wow has been doing a great job of getting them out of their shells!

Our family loves the services provided at Camp Bow Wow, and the caring, energetic Camp Bow Wow staff! Camp Bow Wow is truly our dog's home away from home, and he loves spending time with the staff, that have come to feel like extended family for him.

WOW! There is so much I could say, but for starters this place is GREAT! The camp is always clean and it if weren't for knowing it's a place for dogs you could not tell. The staff is phenomenal, always ready to greet my pup. They give him so much love and attention that it's as if he belongs to them. When I needed to go back to work during this pandemic, I was worried as to how my pup was going to adjust with being home with me everyday for 6 straight months. Would he get along with the other dogs, would he have separation anxiety...Nope he walks right in and I think he looks forward to it. I can even check in on him on the Camper Cam. You have got to try this camp... you won't regret it.
