Camp Bow Wow Pronounces March 12-17 "Lucky Dogs Go To Camp" Week

St. Patty's Day-Inspired Contests Give Dogs and Pet Parents a Chance to Luck Out!

BOULDER, CO--(Marketwire - March 4, 2009) - Luck isn't just for ducks, it's also for dogs! At Camp Bow Wow locations across the country, dogs feel lucky each and every day to play with their friends and relax in comfy beds. In the spirit of St. Patrick's Day, Camp Bow Wow has announced that several participating camps will celebrate "Lucky Dogs Go To Camp" week March 12-17. With chances to win clever contests just by having fun, dogs that don't come will be green with envy!

Customers who bring their dogs to Camp for daycare or a boarding stay between March 12 -17 will receive a free blinking Shamrock pin that reads, "Lucky Dogs Go To Camp." Each hour of each day, a dog will be fitted with a blinking shamrock. If the owner sees their dog wearing the blinking shamrock via our live Camper Cams, they must call the Camp within an hour and the lucky dog will receive a special St. Patty's Day collar. The festive green collars proclaim, "I'm A Lucky Dog!"

Once a day, one dog will be outfitted with seven lucky shamrocks. If the owner spots their dog on our Camper Cams and call within one hour, they will win a three-night boarding package and a free bath!
