Denver, CO (PRWEB) August 17, 2006
Camp Bow Wow, the industry leader in luxury doggy day and overnight care, and Bark Busters, the world's largest, most trusted dog training company, today announced an alliance that will empower its franchisees to expand and leverage the services provided by the two companies. The franchises will work together to share their similar mission of providing better care for pets through marketing and service collaborations, including Bark Busters dog behavioral therapists visiting Camp Bow Wow locations to train staff and work with the “campers.”
In addition to identifying mutually beneficial services to align their efforts, Camp Bow Wow and Bark Busters, both based in the Metro-Denver area, will explore a host of collaborative marketing efforts and joint advertising initiatives, as well as referral relationships on the local level through their respective locations and local veterinarians.
“As Denver has become the center of the dog universe, we are ready to spread our passion for dogs into neighborhoods across America,” said Heidi Flammang, Top Dog at Camp Bow Wow. “By working together with Bark Busters, we have the opportunity to double our strength to ensure dogs are happy, safe and healthy.”
5280 Magazine, in a recent issue, proclaimed Denver as “Dog City USA because of the region’s canine friendly culture,” and there are staggering statistics both in Colorado and nationally that people are “going to the dogs.” With more than 43 million U.S. households including a dog, pet care services are among the fastest-growing areas of the overall pet market. According to the American Pet Products Manufacturing Association, double-digit annual sales gains are expected to continue for the foreseeable future in the pet industry, driving the market past the $40 billion mark. Camp Bow Wow and Bark Busters understand the importance of these furry family members and cater to the pet-loving population that seeks the best products and services for their pets.
“I have been around the world and back and have never been in a more dog-friendly city,” said Andrew Brooke, CEO of Bark Busters. “Locating our headquarters in ‘Dog City USA’ is a perfect fit for us, as is partnering with another rapidly growing, dog-centric organization. Together, we are revolutionizing the way pet care is approached in this country with the goal of enhancing the bond between owners and their pets.”
