San Clemente/ Dana Point Are Doggie Day Care Now Open For Business

Tails began wagging on July 11, 2008 as the first Camp Bow Wow® in South Orange County opened for business in San Clemente. Dogs and their two-legged guardians are invited to visit the premiere doggy day care and overnight boarding camp located at 220 Calle Pintoresco, San Clemente at the intersection of Avenido Pico/La Pata (Iglesia). Pups are invited to come in and experience an entirely new concept in doggy day and overnight care.

Camp Bow Wow® has a lot to offer to their furry friends. Its upscale ambiance enables pooches All Day Play, Snooze The Night Away® while receiving lots of love and attention! Camp Bow Wow® San Clemente features a state of the art facility that sets it apart from competing doggy boarding centers. The camp-themed décor creates the feel of a cozy mountain lodge, and the indoor/outdoor play areas are surrounded with premium wooden fencing. Only at Camp Bow Wow are live Camper Cams® installed in every nook and cranny of the camp, so that owners can remotely watch their beloved pooches play all day. Certified Camp Counselors® are always present at camp, and Camp Bow Wow® offers the leading staff-to-dog ratio. Other amenities include premium cabins with comfy cots and a convenient online reservation system.

Additionally, San Clemente is one of the few camp locations that offer themed luxury suites for those pups who need extra pampering. Luxury suites are extra large and feature fluffy bedding, HD TV's with cable and DVD players, and a private camper cam, the perfect atmosphere for your pup to be pampered.

This doggy day care is just different. For one thing, there's the all day play. Instead of spending most of the day in a cage, with minimal walks, dogs that visit Camp Bow Wow® enjoy most of their time (whether it's for day camp or boarding) playing in one of four large indoor/outdoor play areas. "During the day, campers can spend most of their time outdoors playing with their four-legged friends," says owner Kimberly Simons. "At Camp Bow Wow® our day campers find themselves exhausted by the end of the day when their guardians come to pick them up after a long day of play. The guests who stay overnight are given a tasty campfire treat just before being tucked into their own private and spacious cabin." The facility is completely climate-controlled to maintain maximum doggy comfort throughout the day and night, and all cabins come complete with a cozy fleece-lined cot.

Another unique quality of the camp is that Certified Camp Counselors® monitor the pooches all day and adhere to a strict camper-to-counselor ratio for dog safety purposes. All counselors are trained in dog behavior, safety, and health management, including CPR and First aid training. Camp Bow Wow® knows how dogs play and interact, so all sizes and types of pups are kept very yappy! As an additional safety measure, large and small doggies play in separate areas.

Kimberly is ecstatic about opening a Camp Bow Wow® in San Clemente. She previously worked in the corporate world selling high-end software. She left corporate life to follow her dream of working with dogs. "My Camp Bow Wow offers premium care for every dog, from the regular ole' pooch to the prissy pup!" Kimberly stated. "The camp offers a very comfortable, safe, and clean environment where the dogs can play with their buddies all day or stay for an overnight visit." Camp Bow Wow® San Clemente will also offer upscale doggy retail items for those pups to whom Kimberly lovingly refers as "Dirt Princesses": they love to romp around outside and hike, but they wouldn't dare stroll around town without looking their best!

Kimberly is highly involved in the community and is already generating a yappy amount of buzz around town about her top-notch doggy day and night care in San Clemente. Kimberly leaps toward opportunities to give back to the local community and participate in events to raise money for local shelters and dog related charities. Prior to opening for business, Kimberly participated in both the Annual Wag-A-Thon which funds the San Clemente/Dana Point Animal Shelter and the Annual DAWG Walk supporting the Mission Viejo Animal Shelter.

Kimberly believes in the saying:" Saving one dog's life does not change the world but it sure changes the world for that one dog." Supporting the local shelters and having her own Foster program was a critical deciding factor for Kimberly to open a venue which allowed her to accomplish her goal on a larger scale.

Camp Bow Wow® San Clemente will be hosting a VIP (Very Important Pooch) event on July 31st from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. This is the perfect opportunity for local businesses owners and invited guests to meet the staff, take a tour of the camp, and enjoy a little wine and cheese while networking and enjoying the new facility.

There are a few requirements to be a camper and it all starts with the initial free interview day. The interview is a meet-and-greet with dogs of similar size and temperament, and Kimberly advises owners to leave their pooches for the full day. "Basically, it's a free day of camp and we get to know our future guests on a first-name basis," says Kimberly.
