About Us

This is a picture of me, Nancy Dow, with my former dogs Rocky and Beaufort.

I have been a long time pet lover and was always that kid in the neighborhood surrounded by animals and paid by the neighbors to watch their pets when their people went away in vacation. When I was laid off from my last job, I took some time to really think about what I wanted to do next. What did I love and how was I spending my free time? Well, I love my dogs and I love walking them and thus, bow WOW! was born!

I started subcontracting in early 2012 to check it out and see if I wanted to start my own business. I answered a Craigslist ad and discovered that the poster was the woman who used to walk our dogs! She has been a great friend and mentor to me and I learned a lot from her. So, in September of 2012, I launched my own company and it has been going quite well since then!

We are all pet CPR and
First Aid certified.

Hi! I'm Kristy Bussell - A life-long Melrosian as well as life-long lover of all dogs! Apparently, I have been walking dogs (my aunt and uncle's then Doberman/Black Lab "Dahlia") since I was around 3 years old.  In addition I've always been the "go to" person when my friends and family needed some pet-sitting or walking when they go on vacation. I am happy to take care of your dogs, cats, etc. and I also board dogs in my home.

I'm Heather Wade - I have a great love for all animals but found dogs to be special. I have worked in the medical field for many years and now that I have school-aged kids, I want to work with dogs. I have three: Max (German Shepherd), Tessie (Cavachion) and Sadie (Chug) and can't wait to take care of your pups!

Hi my name is Scott Wade. I was born and raised in Reading before settling in Wakefield. I have always enjoyed dogs and have always had at least one. I currently have three dogs and two cats I share with my wife and three kids. After working in the emergency medical services field for 20 years, I find myself enjoying this new career caring for your four-legged friends (dogs and cats alike)!
