I love how I can check on Dovi and watch what he's doing! It's great to see the staff so attentive and cleaning up whenever there's a mess. Dovi came home tired from all the play, but very happy. I can't wait to take him back again!
The staff at Camp Bow Wow were so friendly, accommodating, and helpful. We brought our dogs here while on vacation visiting family in Michigan, and we couldn't have had a better experience. And the dogs absolutely loved it! We plan to continue bringing them to Camp Bow Wow St. Clair Shores when we are in the area.
I set up an appointment to have Daisy evaluated at this location to ensure she would get along with the other campers. She seemed to enjoy herself. When it was time to actually board her for a long weekend, the night before we were to leave she woke us up with a horrible cough. I took her to my vet, Platz Animal Hospital, where she was diagnosed with kennel cough. She was not even allowed inside the vet office because they were concerned about her infecting other animals. In the end, it cost me $133 for the visit and medicine.
Daisy has been boarded before and has always had a bordatella shot to prevent this type of issue. In fact, she is 8 and has been boarded 2 times a year since she was a puppy. She is not our first dog, and we boarded the other 2 a similar number of times over their 17 year lives.
Finally, when it was time to go on our trip, we could not board Daisy because she was sick. We almost cancelled the trip, but instead were able to hire someone to come to our house to watch her. Had i not found someone to watch her, we would have had to cancel our trip.
My pets are very special members of my family. It was very comforting to have them cared for by the wonderful and caring staff. It also made my time away from home easier by knowing that someone would be stopping by my home on a regular basis. All the pictures that were sent to me showed my babies looking happy and well cared for.
Everything. I don’t have to feel bad leaving my dog home alone for hours because she has a place to go and a second family that loves and takes good care of her in my absence. Everyone is friendly and helpful and wonderful.
I brought my mothers dog and and my dog in to test out the facility. First time in only there for four hours and both dogs are now sick. I noticed on the cameras that these two dogs kept humping another dog aggressively and should been broken up but on camera it didn’t appear that anyone was even in the room supervising. Also I asked to be shown around and the back room was dark and dingy worse then the humane society. Also very loud country was being played. Last I checked dogs have very sensitive ears. Also as you walked up to the building I counted nearly 20 piles of dog poop in the rocks. I gave them the benefit of the doubt that it was early morning and maybe dogs did this as they were coming into the building, but when I picked up in the afternoon the same situation was still there. I’m really never a person who complains and I usually don’t write reviews but you guys really need to update your kennel on the inside for the dogs and not just the lobby. I visited several other dog kennels in st Clair shores after my visit here and all of them were above board. Again I’m sorry to write such a bad review but I can not in good conscience bring my dog back.
We've been using Camp Bow Wow SCS since it's opened and in all that time, we've only had great experiences with the staff. Even when it's been a while since we've come for boarding, we're warmly greeted by staff who remember our dog.
Everyone was so good to my pet, Petey.I enjoyed his picture text and update the day he was there. The report card was cute. All the girls there gave him attention and love! When I called with questions, I got all my answers, very helpful.
