BROOMFIELD, CO - JUNE 8: Sydney Sullivan enjoys having the company of her dogs Midas, middle and Hank, right, while she works at the Camp Bow Wow headquarters on June 8, 2017 in Broomfield, Colorado. Camp Bow Wow is a dog daycare and boarding franchise "hound quartered", as they like to say, in Broomfield, Colorado.

When your entire business is dogs, it makes sense that you would allow canine companions in the office.

But Camp Bow Wow, the rapidly growing dog daycare and boarding franchise that got its start in Denver in 2000, took the idea of being a dog-friendly workplace a step further with the design of its new corporate offices in Westminster.

Cubicles are laid out to maximize hang-out space for four-legged friends. Long corridors cry out for impromptu games of fetch. One wide-open room, with concrete floors and dog gates on either end, is just for socialization breaks — of the canine variety.

And then there’s the dispensers of free dog treats — in their choice of salmon, cheddar and liver flavors — hanging on a wall, not too far from the free human treats, peanuts, Skittles and Sour Patch Kids.

“When you boil it down, they really are our fundamental customer. We exist to make dogs happy,” president Christina Russell said. “That’s what we do, and that, by extension, makes the pet parents happy and that makes our franchise owners happy and it all cascades up. Being around the dogs, it just keeps us grounded.”
