Camp Bow Wow Pet Care Franchise Launches New Franchise Information Website

Boarding and Daycare Franchise Website Shares in-depth Info About the Business Model and Interviews With Franchisees, Key Executives

DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - May 24, 2016) - Camp Bow Wow, the largest pet care franchise in the U.S. with more than 130 locations, has launched a new franchise information site,, that serves as a clearinghouse for people interested in learning more about the brand's strong growth and its franchise opportunity.

The website provides a detailed look at the $60 billion pet care industry, which is growing 5% annually according to IBISWorld. Meanwhile, Camp Bow Wow, an Entrepreneur Franchise 500 company, is growing twice as fast, and the in-depth interviews with executives and franchisees offer insights into the business model that has won over customers.

"Our company was founded by Heidi Ganahl, a woman whose business acumen is equal to her obsession with dogs," said Camp Bow Wow President Christina Russell. "Heidi wasn't satisfied with the status quo kennel business, and what she created was a lucrative daycare, boarding and grooming franchise that puts dogs first. We're passionate about our dogs, and we're equally passionate about the multi-billion dollar business of dogs."

Camp Bow Wow's growth can be attributed to its streamlined systems that maximize ROI for franchisees; its dog-first philosophy that wins over customers and keeps them coming back; and its partnership with parent company VCA, the largest animal hospital network in North America, which strengthens Camp Bow Wow's expertise and provides resources to help the brand continue to innovate. Camp Bow Wow completely disrupted the kennel business model by providing supervision and space to play safely all day in indoor-outdoor play yards. Instead of consigning their beloved pets to a kennel cage, Camp Bow Wow customers give their dogs an all-day treat. Webcams throughout the facilities allow customers to see what their dogs are up to at any moment.

For investors, there are numerous opportunities to maximize earnings with Camp Bow Wow's multiple service lines, including boarding, daycare, baths and full-service grooming, training, in-home pet care and retail. Camp Bow Wow provides the opportunity to build an empire while working in a field that people are passionate about.

"I feel so good about the level of care we provide people," said multi-unit owner Jordan Murray of Pittsburgh. "They aren't having to take their dogs and lock them up all the time in a kennel or drop them at a daycare that doesn't do staffing levels the right way or do proper protocol and procedure. I feel like we're literally helping people."
