What an amazing journey this has been since we opened in 2014, and we are truly proud of what we are offering to our clientele! 

 

With over 25 years of experience working with dogs in various environments, Justin provides a wealth of knowledge. He has managed dog daycare centers across the country, specialized in behavior evaluations for animal shelters and rescue groups, provided animal advocacy and rescue for animal control, has done training for mold detection scent work, and obedience and behavior training for all levels and needs using a Positive Reinforcement approach. With his experience and passion for dogs, it was long overdue for him to own his own facility! 

Carrie is a practicing Medical Social Worker at St. Joseph’s Hospital, where she has worked for the last 24 years, and she has a background in business management. Her canine experience includes obedience training, canine fostering, and breeding. Acting as Justin’s training assistant for the past 9 years has allowed her to expand her knowledge and skills in obedience training.  

                                              

Together, we have three dogs who are the center of our life. 6 year old Kato and Nakoo, both who help manage our daycare groups and assist with training lessons, as well as our matriarch, 14 year old Coonhound, Hailey. Sadly, last year we lost our sweet Golden, Grady, at 13 years old.

We sincerely appreciate everyone who chooses Canine Campus! It has truly been a joy getting to know all of our clients, and loving on each pup every day. Trusting someone to care for your furbaby is a big task, and we are confident that we will provide both you and your dog a positive experience in all areas of our expertise.  

 

Thank you!
