Bio
Heidi Ganahl opened the first Camp Bow Wow in 2000 and began franchising in 2003. All Camp Bow Wow locations offer doggy day care services as well as overnight boarding, with live webcams that allow customers to check in on their dogs. Some locations offer additional services such as grooming, training, and branded retail items. Ganahl later started Home Buddies to offer in-home care services such as pet-sitting, dog walking, pet food delivery, pet waste cleanup, grooming and training for both dogs and other pets unable to come to day care.
