From household hazards to insurance, here is a roundup of our best tips for ensuring your pet's safety.
Just like the planning that went into your vacation, there is prep work to do before boarding your pet. Here are some do's and don'ts to help make the process a little easier.
After the earthquake and tsunami hit Japan, I rushed home to Salt Lake City with my gimpy cat, Norah, in tow. I had been dealing with the vets in Japan enough to know that she has hip dysplasia but even with an interpreter I couldn't get much help with her there. I had to return to Japan, but left my cat with a friend who took her to see Dr. Huston on my behalf. The office staff and the doc were very accommodating with communication over email and the Dr. Huston herself made time to speak with me over the phone at length about Norah's hips. She and the staff went as far as to look into surgeons/specialists who could do a hip replacement (my cat had no hips anymore at this point) in Utah and were very good about keeping me posted on what they found out. About 6 months later I came back to Utah for good with a second kitty. I brought both of my cats in for shots and follow up on the hip situation. I got to see firsthand how natural and patient Dr. Huston was with my cats and how well they reacted to her. Norah is a very shy cat who used to hide her face under my shirt at the vet in Japan, but was very cooperative with Dr. Huston. She surprised me my telling me that Norah's condition made her curious and that she had started reaching out and learning as much as she could from specialists on the subject. Knowing that she cares and loves her job that much, and seeing her with my cats, was an experience I'll always hold other animal hospitals and vets to. In the end I have not moved forward with hip replacement for my cat- but I bought some glucosamine at her suggestion and feed my cat in a way that keeps her at the weight her hips can handle. Norah has been improving so much and even chases the other kitty around- pretty amazing for a cat with no hips and arthritis in what she has left of them! The cost for vaccination, x-ray, visit, a month supply glucosamine supplement, and kitty painkiller (very rarely used and still plenty left) was around $200, and that really is reasonable.
This is a fabulous place! I took my 2 Chinese Crested (1 - 14 1/2 yrs old and the other 7 yrs old) and my Mexican Hairless (11 yrs old) for their interview. Yes I said interview. They don't only want to meet and speak with you, but your dog must pass the Canine Camper Interview. The interview consists your dog meeting another dog the same size and then a couple dogs and then several dogs. When they introduce the dogs, they are very smart and introdue them as a dog would. They allow each to smell the others behind, all while being very controlled. Then the dogs stay and interact for 2 -3 hours or lonoger if you wish to ensure how they will do. Once the dogs pass the test, then the staff meets and they are told about each of the dogs and how they interacted, etc. It was fun watching the process on the tv and even better that the dogs were tired from their experience without being overwhelmed or intimidated. I also like that there is always a human in with the dogs in the play area. Looking forward to the kids having an overnight with them. I live approx 1 hr north of this facility and it was the only facility I felt comfortable enough to allow my dogs to be boarded at.
I have 4 wonderful dogs who I've been taking to camp bow wow for over a year. 2 of which are a bit special needs. Neither of them are very playful in the group, and when they board they really don't eat much. The staff does such a wonderful job working with each of them on an individual bases. Every time I check the web cam's I see my two little dogs being held and loved on by the staff. When we've boarded them I've been very pleased with how happy and healthy my dogs are when I come to pick them up and I'm extra appreciative at how the staff takes the extra time to ensure my little dogs eat while they board at camp. And should my dogs be extra stubborn and not eat, the staff always lets me know. It didn't take to many visits before my pack really started to warm up to the staff. And even though my little dogs still aren't the most playful dogs, they both get very excited when we pull up to bow wow Its apparent that the staff smoothers them with attention.
I've been bringing my dog to day camp at Camp Bow Wow for almost a year and I can't recommend them enough!! I have a very high-energy, 18 month old pit mix. A walk a day simply doesn't cut it for him when it comes to exercise. Not only does playing with the other pups all day leave him one tired, happy dog, it teaches him great dog socialization skills. He is incredibly dog-social and I want to ensure he stays that way. I can't think of a better way to do that than to spend hundreds of hours in a caring, controlled environment with other dogs who have also been shown to be dog-friendly. Capone (like all dogs) was evaluated individually before he could join the camp. That means that they took the time to 'interview' him rather than making a blanket judgment based on his breed. I trust the staff at Camp Bow Wow implicitly and am happy to know Capone is having the time of his life rather than sitting home bored and lonely when I'm at work.
Camp bow wow looks good so far. My bear hasn't stayed there for more than the 3 hour interview process but he came home tired! I love how they can choose to be inside or out when ever they please. The fact that they get a peanut butter filled kong treat before bed is also comforting! I also loved the fact that I could watch my pup interacting and playing right on my phone with their camera app! My only concern is that I did not see any water they could access other than while they are in their cabins... Or cages I should say.. I allow my dog acces to water whenever he pleases, so that is a little abnormal and somewhat concerning to me. Especially if he is playing the whole time! I could be wrong, as I just glanced over the play area when we walked through for a tour.. But I definitely did not see any from the camera's point of view. Over all I am pretty pleased with camp bow wow. Oh! and.. Their councelors are great with the pups!
We have been taking our dogs to Little Dogs for their whole lives. Walter is 9 and Lois is 4. Sometimes we think the dogs would rather be at Little Dogs than home with us. They start barking and jumping all over the car as soon as we turn on the Little Dogs street. Little Dogs is always clean and you can just tell that everyone there loves the dogs and their job. Once, Lois had a bladder infection that we didn't even know about and Little Dogs caught it and let us know and got her taken care of by the vet before we got home from our vacation. We were so grateful that they know our dogs so well that they could tell (better than we could) that poor Lois just wasn't feeling good. I will never forget how wonderful it felt to know my dogs were in the best hands while our family was on vacation. I highly recommend Little Dogs to everyone I know
Camp bow wow is great! The only problem we had was with one of our newer dogs, he just needed a little bit more time and patience. When he went for his interview the girl working only interacted with him for about 10 min she came off kind of negative which we didnt like. We called and talked to the owner who was very kind and willing to give him a little bit more of a chance, she was great! Very good energy and she was really patient and kind with him. He didn't pass but our other dog did. We really appreciate them going the extra mile for us and the rest of the staff was awesome! We would highly recommend camp bow wow! We love that the dogs get to play all day and we love the cameras! We are so excited for jack (the one who passed) to play all weekend while we go on vacation!
I loved it!!! After months of searching, my wife and I finally found Camp Bow Wow. Compared to all the rest in the surrounding area, this one is top notch. We liked the fact that the staff was extremely caring and kind. I felt like I would be leaving my puppies with a family member for the week. They offered an interview process (day play) for the dogs which was nice because some places board dogs that don't play nice with others. When I picked them up, we were offered a tour of the entire facility which other places tend not to do. The whole place was very clean, organized and professional, which again is hard to come by these days. The rates are very reasonable for the services provided and I will recommend Camp Bow Wow to everyone I know with dogs.
I have a very shy small miniature schnauzer with major anxiety. Camp Bow Wow has been a life saver. I often work long hours and when I was no longer able to take my dog to work with me I was worried about him spending long hours in his kennel. Camp Bow Wow was the answer! He goes every day and is excited to go. The camp counselors are great with his anxiety and know how to great him. His tail is often wagging as he walks back to play with the other dogs. The counselors are all attentive and let me know if they think he is acting differently or not feeling well. When I go out of town I am confident leaving my dog with them and I love being able to check in on him on the camper cams. I can't imagine a better doggy day care then Camp Bow Wow.
I can't say enough about Camp Bow Wow. Since my dog Meg has been going while I am at work she is a much more content dog ( a Happy Camper) and I am a much happier pet owner. She plays so hard that when she comes home she is very relaxed and calm. She knows in the morning that it is time to go to camp and she is waiting by the door. She loves it! the staff is always so up beat and easy to work with. You can tell they all love the animals and are very good to them. If you have any doubts you can watch them on the web cam and see how much fun they have. Camp Bow Wow has been a life saver for me and I will continue to take Meg there. Thank you to all the staff for making my experience with your camp a favorable one.
