Club Bow Wow Resort Grand Opening
By Alyssa Lamp
Last month, Club Bow Wow Resort of Boca Raton opened the doors to their new location on NE 20th street. The Boca Raton Chamber Of Commerce attended to help with the ribbon cutting ceremony and along with the Chamber Of Commerce, was Club Bow Wow’s very own customers and fury friends.
Club Bow Wow was created as a place for special pets like yours to relax, recline, and romp foolishly to their hearts’ content. There are unique areas to satisfy all moods and temperaments.
Founded over 13-years-ago by local residents Cheryl Gorman and brother, Sean Gorman,
Club Bow Wow Resort is a family owned pet resort in the community that provides daycare, grooming and overnight boarding in a cage-free environment and natural setting for pets around-the-clock.
Prior to opening Club Bow Wow Resort, Cheryl Gorman was a systems engineer for 16 years before making a career change to the pet industry after conducting research specifically on pet care. Wanting to establish a location and environment where she would feel comfortable leaving her own two dogs, Gorman developed Club Bow Wow Resort to have a special concept so that all of their clients would want to leave their pets in a cage-free grooming and boarding environment unlike many other establishments.
In addition to this, Cheryl Gorman also became a certified pet groomer, so she grooms all the furry friends herself, and completed doggy daycare training before teaming up with her brother Sean to offer personalized services and care for each pet that visits them, whether they are there for the day, the weekend, or a week.
Cheryl says, “After 16 years as a Systems Engineer, I was ready for a change. As I researched the pet care industry, the concept of creating a place where I could leave my two dogs, Beau Bear and Smooch Bear, was developed. Club Bow Wow had to be special, had to be cage-free, and had to cater to spoiled-perfect dogs. No request could be too outrageous.”
Trained caregivers play with the dogs and provide TLC and hugs. Disciplined play-time is reinforced with time-outs, if necessary. Safety first is their motto.
A loyal customer, Natalie Mikolich tells me, “Club Bow Wow Resort’s owner, Cheryl, her brother Sean and her staff treat every pet that comes through their door like it was their own. There are very few people I trust my dog (Dunkin) with, but I can always count on them no matter what time of the day it is. Whether it is for boarding or grooming, they are always there to help and truly care about each person’s pet.”
In addition to providing a stress-free and open atmosphere that caters to the individual needs of each pet, Club Bow Wow Resort is also actively involved in holding fundraising events that benefit various non-profit organizations for animals along with giving back to local schools.
No matter how much fun your dog has had at Club Bow Wow, he/she will greet you enthusiastically at the end of the day. Rest assured, your pet will be ready for dinner and a good snooze after his/her exciting visit.
