Meet Our Team


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 23 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 21 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 four dogs that are the center of our life. After the sudden and devastating loss of our 8 year old Husky, Shane, we brought in two new Husky puppies, Kato and Nakoo. We also have Grady, our 13 year old Golden Retriever/Lab mix, and Hailey, our 2 year old Coonhound mix. 

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!


Justin & Carrie

Danielle, Lead Animal Care Attendant

My name is Danielle and I have been a part of the Canine Campus team as a Team Lead since we opened in November of 2014, and it has been exciting to work with returning clients and to welcome all of the new ones coming on board! I graduated from the University of Buffalo with a BA degree in Communication. I started working with dogs in a daycare facility 10 years ago, and I LOVE every minute of it! I always treat all of the dogs here as if they were my own. I recently adopted a Husky puppy named, Grimm, and it is so amazing to have a dog all of my own! In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, as well as, reading.

I am a dog obsessed cat mom with four feline companions: Simba, Laura Jane Grace, Fourvel, and Sylvia Plath; all of which were rescued. Animals have always been a big part of my life, my best friend growing up was a German Shepherd named Harley. I recently adopted a Husky, named Stark, and have enjoy spending my free time hiking with him. I am always eager to learn about animals, dogs in particular, from their biology to their psychology! 

Dan, Animal Care Attendant

Hi! My name is Dan and I've been with the Canine Campus team since June of 2017. Dogs and everything related have been one of my greatest passions since I first began working with dogs six years ago in a dog daycare here in Syracuse. Since then I've worked at various other daycares here in Syracuse, as well as in Buffalo, N.Y., where I went to UB for 4 years. I have one dog of my own, a 3 year old basset hound- corgi mix named Gigi. She is a big dog in a small dog's body and she likes to make sure everyone knows it! Gigi and I love working with dogs, and are eager everyday to bond with them and gain more knowledge and experience about them!

Logyn, Animal Care Attendant

Hi Friends! My name is Logyn and I joined the Canine Campus team in September 2017. I graduated from SUNY Brockport with a BA in Sociology and Criminal Justice. I rescued my first pup, Henry, two years ago and he changed my life. Not too long after having him, I knew I wanted to work with dogs. A year after having Henry, I found my second pup Jax! They became best friends (and my best friends) and my favorite thing to do is take them hiking. I won't go anywhere without my boys, so much that people know when they hang out with me, I will have my two stinky boys with me! I am so grateful to be able to work with dogs and spend my days taking care of the cutest pups ever!

Brooke, Animal Care Attendant

Hi! My name is Brooke. I joined the Canine Campus team in December 2017, and I love every minute of it! I currently go to SUNY ESF, majoring in Environmental Biology with a focus in conservation. I am not exactly sure what I want to do after school but, I would be happy doing anything as long as I get to help both people and animals along the way. I recently adopted a two year old Siberian husky named Atlas and it has been an adventure so far. He loves everyone he meets and is going to live the happiest life from here on out. Being able to spend my days loving on and taking care of your fur-babies is so amazing! I promise to love each and every one of your dogs as they were my own.
