From watching the live camera feed, it seemed like my dog would calmly stand in front of the staff attendee and just wanted a bit of attention and to be pet but the attendee never responded. My dog's behavior was calm and he was a bit unsure of his surrounds and could have used a little comfort and encouragement. I'm not sure if it's policy not to pet the dogs but some dogs may be comforted by a few pets and rubs.
Everyone is very friendly! I know that Yukon is getting good care and having a great time when he is at Camp Bow Wow. I like the web cams that let me sneak a peek of what he might be doing throughout the day. When we ask him if he wants to go see his friends, he goes crazy. He has such a great time there, and we very much appreciate the service that Camp Bow Wow provides!
We left Nala on Thursday October 25th for a stay while we got married. We signed a waiver stating that kennel cough was highly contagious and the flu shot was required for her. There was no mention of recent cases at the camp.
When we picked her up on the afternoon of October 28th, she had a huffing cough. We were told it was probably because she was still wet from her bath as she wouldn't let the groomer dry her. Upon getting her home, her cough became worse to the point we took her to the vet on October 29th where she was diagnosed with kennel cough.
We called the camp back to let them know and the girl on the phone admitted that there had been a few cases this month of kennel cough at the camp. This was not what I wanted to hear after the fact. That should have been stated up front that there were recent cases.
The vet visit cost us $166.00 that we should not have had to spend. Had we known recent cases of it where at the camp, we most likely would have taken her elsewhere.
With the amount of interaction between dogs your camp has, there should have been steps taken to decontaminate the camp after each outbreak instead of just making guests sign waivers knowing dogs are more than likely to contract it at your location.
