And, Camp Bow Wow offers live webcams, allowing parents to check in on their furry friends at any time. “Additionally, there will be Certified Camp Counselors, trained in dog behavior, pet CPR and first aid, supervising all-day play, socialization, and overnight stays,” Myers says. Camp Bow Wow even has an Animal Health & Behavior Consultant, Erin Askeland, CPDT-KA, CBCC-KA, on staff, who serves as an expert resource for the entire system of Camps.

“Camp Bow Wow Hoboken is part of a national franchise system that has been operating for 20 years and has more than 180 locations in 42 states and Canada,” says Myers, who said he picked Hoboken for a new franchise because of its development and proximity to New York City, as well as the dog-friendly nature of the community. 

“Just walking the communities and seeing all the dogs, there is no doubt that Hoboken, Jersey City, and Weehawken are all fur-kid loving communities,” he said to The Hoboken Girl

And, to show dogs, even more, love, Camp Bow Wow Hoboken partnered with the Liberty Humane Society through their non-profit organization, Bow Wow Buddies Foundation. The foundation offers grants to individuals, shelters, and rescue groups that help pay for necessary veterinary care.

Local Collab

“After conversations with Liberty Humane Society leadership and learning about their current needs, we developed our first campaign called Change for Good. In celebration of the National “Change a Pet’s Life Day” on January 24th, we launched the fundraiser with the goal of raising $1,000 to recognize the hard work of shelter staff and volunteers, encourage adoption, and support critical medical needs like vaccinations, medication and spaying/neutering. Camp Bow Wow Hoboken promised to match donations up to 50% and we ended up exceeding our goal by 26%, raising $1,265!”  

Camp Bow Wow Hoboken is slated to open sometime in the month of April 2021 at 1414 Grand Street in Hoboken. We’ll share more details and specifics as the opening date gets closer.
