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.
Justin & Carrie
Demaree joined our Canine Campus team in 2018, after relocating to the CNY area from KY. She has worked in the dog daycare and grooming field for over 7 years, and with her background as a Groomer's Assistant, was promoted to a Groomer here with us! Building on her prior experience, she trained closely with Megan for nearly two years, and has been grooming independently for over a year. With Megan's retirement from the field, Demaree has been able to continue providing the best quality care to our clients with all coat types! Demaree has a rescue pup of her own, Mabel, and also enjoys, painting, gaming, anime, and all things Disney!
