~HISTORY OF BOW WOW BED & BREAKFAST~
(words from Christy)
The business started out as a small boarding home-based business just 100 feet behind my house. The original building was only 468 square feet and contained 10 indoor/outdoor boarding runs. I ran the business by myself until my twin pregnancy came. In March 2002, I hired my first employee to help with the business. That person was also a professional groomer and thus began the grooming department! Steady and sure the business kept growing and customers increased mostly by word of mouth from friends and local vets. Very little outside advertising was needed. We were excited to serve the community and it seemed the community was excited to find us! Soon after 2 years from the time grooming was added to the business, we decided to add onto the existing building. In the summer of 2004, Bow Wow Bed & Breakfast had 3 employees and all were helping with the boarding and grooming depatments. That summer we added on 864 square feet to the building. This gave us a new comfortable grooming area, a new office area and added 15 new kennel runs to the boarding area. Over the years Bow Wow has seen cherished and loved employees move on to other adventures in life and have welcomed new ones to take their places. In 2018 we will be celebrating twenty years of service to the community!! How blessed we are to continue serving our community friends and furry feet friends in the future! If you haven't given us a visit yet, please come see us soon!
