Dog day care business relocates
A suburban dog day care business has relocated into a larger facility.
Camp Bow Wow moved last month from its old location in Jamestown Township, at 4322 Central Pkwy., to a newly constructed building in Jamestown Township, at 3625 Quincy St., just south of Hudsonville.
“Our previous location was growing rapidly, and we were running out of room,” said Alicia Offringa, camp ranger, Camp Bow Wow Hudsonville. "We decided to expand in Hudsonville, so we could be near our existing customers.
“We are excited to have more space for visiting dogs to explore and play and to offer new amenities, such as additional dog training and care services.”
Camp Bow Wow purchased the then-vacant 2.81-acre parcel and contracted Henry Kamps Builders, who completed the new 8,500-square-foot building in just over 60 days. The cost of construction was not disclosed.
Aside from having a larger presence than its previous 6,500-square-foot location, the business can now host about 90 dogs per day. It will continue to offer dog day care, dog boarding and more.
Dogs get at least eight hours of play daily and have access to a variety of activities, including play yards and pools.
The location has 20 employees.
Colliers International West Michigan advisors Trent Wieringa, David Rapp and Matt Abraham represented the seller, Prime Real Estate Investments, and Wieringa also represented Camp Bow Wow.
“There is a lot of development activity happening in Jamestown Township, especially in the Jamestown Commerce Center,” Wieringa said. “We couldn’t imagine a better user than Camp Bow Wow for this site.”
There is one more vacant 2.7-acre parcel available at the Jamestown Commerce Center.
Camp Bow Wow has over 140 locations nationwide, including five in Michigan.
