The staff is very friendly. My dog loves camp. The dogs are well taken care of and always watched so I don't worry about his safety at all. And most importantly he is exhausted at the end of the day which lets me relax at night an not have to worry about draining his energy after my long, exhausting day.
Oh my gosh, Camp Bow Wow of El Cajon is the BEST! Rover loves going to hangout with her buddies, other dogs or human and we are very grateful as her Mom and Dad with confidence that she is well taken care of. Rover is well loved at Camp Bow Wow and that is expressed with enthusiasm when she arrives to play. We love how you give service to the dog community, rescues, shelters, dog fairs.
1. The primary issue is that there was a dog that was way too aggressive in his "play" behavior. I watched my dog get pinned down several times, and even try to hide from that one dog. I also watched that one dog torment several other dogs in the play-yard throughout the day. He was way too rough. I would think other dog owners would pull their dog from your care if they saw that going on.
2. The human overseers were sometimes very good at monitoring and redirecting aggressive play behavior, and others walked around oblivious staring at the walls or ground or ceiling. It was nice to see the humans petting and loving on the dogs - that was really nice.
3. The play rooms seem very sterile, but I realize this is the format for the franchise. But the humans seemed bored as well.
I love the easy access from just about anywhere in East San Diego County. Also, our dog, Chuey, is always happy about being there; he pushes right through the reception gate and is anxious for someone to let him in. It is such a relief to know that he truly is a Happy Camper.
