Boulder, CO (PRWEB) December 5, 2006
As New Year's resolutions are made, people tend to take that opportunity to reevaluate their careers and accompanying lifestyles. Over the last few years, men, women and couples realized change was necessary in their lives and switched direction, finding Camp Bow Wow (http://www.campbowwowusa.com). Across America and Canada, entrepreneurs have "taken back their life," opening Camp Bow Wow doggy day care locations in their communities and profiting by their love for animals.
Camp Bow Wow recently sold its 150th franchise, making it the largest dog day and overnight care franchise in North America. The company is finding its place with entrepreneurs who want to embark on a business adventure that better matches their life goals.
"We have quite a few franchise owners that fled from Corporate America or other positions that weren't professionally or personally satisfying," said Heidi Flammang, Top Dog and CEO of Camp Bow Wow. "Camp Bow Wow offers an opportunity for entrepreneurs who want to use their business sense, yet unleash the inner dog lover that's in each of us."
The lucrative pet business is extremely compelling. Recently, the American Pet Product Manufacturers Association (APPMA) stated that Americans are spending $2.5 billion on pet services (grooming, boarding, etc.) and, according to a 2005 survey, the average American pet owner spends about $2,100 a year on their dog.
"After a 20 year career in manufacturing and working my way up the ladder, I made a decision to pursue owning my own business. I had what a lot of other people would call success, but I realized success was having joy in what you do daily," said Melinda Hoover, Camp Bow Wow franchise owner in Greenville, South Carolina. "Camp Bow Wow is not only a great business opportunity; it's hard work and fun at the same time. I have the best job in the whole world."
In what has become a $500 million industry, doggy day care has been primarily a mom and pop business. While maintaining the feel of a mom and pop, Camp Bow Wow has advanced and standardized the model into what is the most sophisticated dog day and overnight care operation in the country. Utilizing technology, state-of-the-art facility design, and intensive employee training, all in a camp-like setting, Camp Bow Wows are operationally the best run and safest environments for dogs.
