HL Does NOLA from A to Z: C is for CAMP BOW WOW

C1 thek9harperlee

C is for Camp Bow Wow. If you’re a human, this one might not be high on your New Orleans sightseeing list. But if you’re a dog, Camp Bow Wow is a must. It’s definitely one of my favorite places in the city. New Orleans has two Camp Bow Wow locations. One is in an area known as Mid-City and the other is in the Irish Channel. My Golden little sister, Tallulah Bee, and I are Irish Channel campers.

Like all of Camp Bow Wow’s day and overnight campers, Tallulah and I had to complete a half-day interview. (My human mommy joked that she felt like the mother of a five-year-old human child interviewing for kindergarten . . . but, even if she won’t admit it, she was a little nervous that we wouldn’t be accepted. Silly Mommy. We aced our interviews.) The counselors–that’s what they call the nice humans at Camp Bow Wow–use the half-day interview to make sure that each dog’s temperament is well-suited to the environment. You wouldn’t want a camper who plays practical jokes on his or fellow campers or one who gets homesick.

Campers are assigned to different indoor-outdoor areas of the facility based on size, and counselors keep an eye on things in each of the areas. Overnight campers have a choice of accommodations: cabins or luxury suites. My sister and I share a cabin on our overnight stays. I have to say I find the cabins to be pretty luxurious, so I can’t imagine what a suite would be like. There are even live webcams of the play areas and suites so doggy parents can keep an eye on their pups. You can click here for a link. WARNING: Camper Cams are totally addictive.

    Squeals with piggy delight! OMP – this is so totally cool. But don’t worry beautiful. If you close, you can stay with me here at the Hotel Thompson – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

  2. On occasion Kali goes to Camp Bow Bow in Livermore CA. It’s a great day care option for the rare times we need to board her for the day. We’ve not done the overnight.

  3. This sounds like a wonderful place to “camp” and I’m glad to know about it.

    • My human mommy discovered it just before we moved to New Orleans because she knew I would need to have a place to hang out when the movers arrived at our new house. Lucky me! They also offer training classes, which my little sister has attended. Her behavior is absolutely not a reflection on the quality of the classes. 😉

  4. Completely wonderful! We’re on the same page… see my D = Dog post! 🙂

  5. Camp BowWow looks like a pretty fun place to wait for parents to come home when they have to be busy. Mom tried to look at the camera, but it didn’t work. She will try again later from the regular computer.

    Love and licks,

    We have those Bow Wow Camps here too, but have never been there. Bailie went to another place for daycare. Mom loved the webcams and was always watching her.
