Ever since Katie McKittrick adopted Reagan from the SPCA of Wake County, the leggy lab and greyhound mix gets treated like royalty as part of the McKittrick family.

Twice a month, McKittrick takes her favorite fur baby to day care at Camp Bow Wow, which has three locations in the Triangle that offer staff and faculty a 10 percent discount on services.

“She’s a social doggie, and it helps get her energy out,” said McKittrick, chief of staff for the Chief Human Resources Officer at Duke University Health System. “I can’t imagine our family without Reagan. She adds laughter and joy everywhere she goes. And lots of blonde hair.”

The Camp Bow Wow locations in Cary/Apex and Raleigh-Durham International Airport offer a 10 percent discount on all regular price services and 5 percent discount on retail items. The location on Bennett Memorial Road in Durham offers a 10 percent discount on boarding.

McKittrick takes Reagan, named for her uncle’s former dog, to the Camp Bow Wow Raleigh-Durham International Airport location off Miami Boulevard.

She is able to check on Reagan throughout the day through a live-streaming video app to see Reagan playing with other dogs on indoor and outdoor playgrounds. 

“It’s a nice reminder of how much fun she’s having,” McKittrick said. 

After moving from Washington D.C. and transitioning from apartment living five years ago, a dog was a top priority for McKittrick and husband, Evan, when they returned to their native North Carolina. 

“Discounts like Camp Bow Wow’s make life easier,” McKittrick said. “It makes me feel valued as an employee when Duke sets out to make relationships with local businesses to help with the day-to-day for staff.”
