I have been taking my Husky puppy to Camp Bow Wow for about four months, and I have had the best experience. My dog loves it there. He plays all day, he is placed with dogs of like temperament, and he comes home good and tired. The staff are nice, but I must give one staff member kudos. Omar takes the time to converse with me and give me feedback about how my puppy is doing. You can tell he really loves all the dogs. Finding this place has been the best outlet for my baby. Give it a try, you won't be sorry.
I have been home sick for days with a very bad cough. Needless to say, walking my big Allie dog has been rough and she really needs her exercise! The best idea I had was to send her to camp for a day or two. I called camp and within a few hours, Allie was on her way! Steve picked her up from my doorstep. Now, I can rest knowing Allie is having a great time with her friends. I know she is in the best hands and I can't thank you guys enough for helping me out today!! I wouldn't know what I would do without Camp...you are all the best!!!
We've been sending our Boxer/American Bulldog here for 3 years. His experience of camp is summed up by his reaction when we ask him "Do you want to go to camp?". He runs around the house like crazy, smiling and wagging his tail and can't run fast enough to the car! The best things about Camp Bow Wow is the personable staff, clean and safe environment, and ease of booking day/overnight care! Try it out -- your dog will love it!
We've been sending our Siberian to Camp Bow Wow in LIC for about five years now. He goes twice a week, Our dog developed separation anxiety and having him go to Camp has been immensely therapeutic for him. He runs around all day and comes home tired and ready to sleep. Steve and his staff all love our dog immensely. Our dog is a sensitive soul and they look out for him. We also let him stay on overnights, something my husband would NOT do at any other place. It's convenient for us to send him because they pick him up in the morning and return him after work at night in a doggie van. Also we have them bathe and furminate him once a month which is hugely convenient for us, since we both work long hours and want to maximize the quality time we spend with our dog. And the price is really pretty reasonable for doggie daycare, baths and furmination. It's a good value and we feel good about him going. We don't worry when he's there, because we know he's being looked after and having fun.
I have been visiting this establishment for 2 1/2 years and even till this day, I am astounded at how much these fine people care about their customers. Seldom do you see a team so adamant on pleasing every single person that walks into their store. Everyone is extremely veritable because they truly do love animals. I frequently drop off my Shiba-Inu at the camp and every time I do; Steve, Crystal or Dawn drop her off at my place and she is always in a resplendent mood. This camp is a bastion of unprecedented professionalism. Shogun absolutely loves spending her time at camp and mingles with with the other dogs beautifully. All dogs are treated with the utmost care and if my word is not enough, a webcam is setup at the camp that gives a on-going live feed of everything that transpires. Constant surveillance can be made on your part and I assure you, you will like what you see. Steve, Crystal and Dawn are among the finest people I have ever had the pleasure of bestowing my patronage to. I highly recommend their services to all dog owners.
Never been here - but I did watch the driver of their van physically threaten a motorist who was honking at him for blocking traffic in LIC. I couldn't imagine trusting the safety of my pet with someone who cannot control his temper. I'd steer clear.
Camp Bow Wow IS the Gold Standard!!! – I've been taking my dog Peyton to different daycares for about 5 years til we came across Camp Bow Wow last year. I can't say enough about the staff and how excited Peyton gets when we're up the street coming to Camp. He yanks me through the door and doesn't look back to say goodbye. I watch him play all day with his buds on the webcams, and when I pick him up he falls asleep in the car and dreams about Camp cuz he runs in his sleep! You can tell the staff are huge dog lovers cuz they're excited to see Peyton every time, and he them. Big Kudos to Omar and Noemi, his favorite Counselors. Like I said, i've been to probably 6 daycares around the city, but this place is by far the biggest and best, and really sets the standard for daycares around Queens and NYC!!
MY DOG WAS ATTACKED AT CAMP BOW WOW LIC – Be careful! This place is all about making money, no real care or love for animals!
After almost a year of daycare at Camp Bow Wow LIC I decided to take a long vacation and leave my dog boarding with them. When I returned my dog had a serious allergy on his belly, his skin was inflamated and nearlly bleeding, no one at the camp seemed to have noticed or cared to address the case. I took it to the vet and the vet said my dog had an allergy to the product they use to clean their place. After 5 weeks treating with antibiotics the dog has recovered. I went back to leave the dog for daycare, I explained what happened and they said they use strong hospital chemicals on their floor and that they would write a note on my file to no longer use it on my dog's cabin next time. So I left the dog there for day care and 2 hrs later I get a call from my vet that my dog was attacked by another dog inside the Campbowwow LIC , and was taken there with open injuries on 2 legs and that it needed to have anesthesia and several stitches.... I called the camp and they said they were NOT liable for this, that my dog was NOT A VICTIM since he was the one who started humping the other dog!!! What???? The owner Steve Neagus wouldn't even listen to me over the phone... trying to interrupt while I tried to tell him about my previous experiences on that place... If you love your dog DO NOT TAKE IT TO CAMP BOW WOW LIC! My dog is now under care on a local VET. The owner of the other dog offered to pay what made me wonder... They do take aggressive dogs on camp and risk the life of our dogs...The INTERVIEW process is nothing but BS. Any dog will be allowed in regardless of them being aggressive or not, as long as you can pay their rates. My dog doesn't know how to bite, so the dog who attacked him is probably still playing in their camp putting all of your dogs in risk of being attacked. Say NO to camp bow wow!
I would like to take this opportunity to speak realistically & truthfully. Tutti (Bull dog) was bitten on on his two front legs by JJ(? Beagle ? Bulldog). We have had an overwhelming positive experience with JJ, he has been a very good daycare dog for several years now. We have had exactly ZERO incidents with JJ. Monday JJ was provoked & humped by Tutti. We broke up the fight, & Tutti had superficial injuries.
JJ hasn't been at camp since the incident. ~ Cody 718-392-9663
Love this place!!! – I bring my dog to CBW five days a week and she couldn't be happier - well maybe if I took her seven days ;). The staff is caring and attentive. They treat her like she was their own and give her such special care. She comes home exhausted from having so much fun and can't wait to go back the next morning. I love being able to watch her on the webcams and hearing about her day when I pick her up at night. I especially love the periodic report cards they give me on her behavior. The space is large and the dogs are separated by size and temperament for their safety which is great. The owner Stephen gives such personal care to everyone that walks in. It's nice to see such a grass roots business growing ing LIC. Can I say anything more about how great this place and the staff are? :)
