Restauranteur Herbert Dyer has partnered with Angelle Crochet and Rusty White to bring the doggy day care franchise Camp Bow Wow to Mid-City. The site, purchased in May 2014, will house a 10,000 square foot brand new facility at 3301 Conti Street along the Lafitte Greenway.
Dyer was considering other properties but they were all in Mid-City. “The name says it all. ‘Mid-City’ is very convenient to get to from anywhere in the city.”
Camp Bow Wow will also have 3,500 square feet of outdoor play space for the dogs. The new facility is not in an industrial area like most other locations.
The new facility, built from the ground up, will feature pet hospital-type venting to eliminate smell, the newest style kennels Camp Bow Wow has to offer, ultraviolet lights in the HVAC system to kill bacteria and 11 luxury suites.
The Mid-City location is not expected to compete with Camp Bow Wow New Orleans on Tchoupitoulas Street, which is almost at capacity now. Dyer says they will get some of the same clients because of the convenient location, and general overflow.
