Meet The Team!

At Bow chika Wow Town, we understand that your dog is a member of your family.  Our team of certified animal care specialists truly appreciate and value the trust that you place in us.  We do not take that trust lightly.  Many days, our own dogs come to work with us and we want you to feel confident in the care your dog receives as we treat each pup as if they are our own.  All team members participate in on-going education.  Bow chika Wow Town is a Dog Gurus approved company with each team member having participated in this training and passed their quizzes after each assignment.   Additionally, Bow chika Wow Town is proud to be the 1st pet care provider in the State of Rhode Island to begin certifying our staff in accordance with the Professional Animal Care Council.

Our team is more than staff, they are family and they treat your dogs as part of our family.
