Meet the Staff

Meet the Puppy Camp Day Care Counselors and Overnight Boarding Staff


Jim Turner


Jim is co-owner of Puppy Camp. Jim is married and has 3 children. He has worked in the music industry for years. He wanted to be a vet but didn’t want to spend 12 years in school, so this is the next best thing. (Plus no need for chemistry class).

My parents never let me have a dog.


Susan and Jon Woodcock

​Co-Owner and Counselor

Susan (photographed) is co-owner of Puppy Camp, and also one of our overnight hosts. She is responsible for its start. She has over 30 years of experience as a veterinary assistant, and still works at Pleasant Ridge Pet Hospital on weekends. Jon is her husband, who works here part-time (but we don’t pay him). They have two grown children and have been married for 42 years! Their Son is a Veterinarian married to a veterinarian in PA.

Susan: It’s not easy being an alpha dog at 5’2″.
Jon: The dogs won’t believe me…I’m a cat person!



Stacy started at Puppy Camp in March of 2014. For the past seven years, she has been a kennel manager and supervisor in Chicago, Atlanta & Cincinnati. She is also a trainer, and volunteers at shelters.

I’m have a strong passion for the well being of all animals!



Shannon started at Puppy Camp in November 2017 and loved it.  She is currently a sophomore at UC studying International Business.  She took last summer off to work in an orphanage in Mexico.

I love to travel and explore new places, meet new people and of course play with dogs.



Matthew started at Puppy Camp in October 2018.  He has worked at other dog day cares.  He likes to work, so he always has two jobs.  Matt has had lots of dogs his whole life.

Dogs are a family thing.



Vince joined the Puppy Camp team in June of 2015. Vince and Nick, are brothers. Vince likes to build stuff. He would like to be an engineer someday, maybe through the army. When Vince is here the dogs follow him everywhere.

I’m just a big animal person, dogs, cats, any animal!



Nick has been on staff since January of 2014. He is our Assistant Manager. Nick is interested in a career in law enforcement. He plans to return to school shortly. When he is not at Puppy Camp, he spends his time with his own dogs and helping to take care of his baby niece.

What do dogs and law enforcement have in common? Keeping people safe, and…Nick.



Hanna joined the Puppy Camp Team in October 2016. She has a strong love for dogs and would someday love to own her own doggie day care. Hannah still lives at home with her parents and when she is not working at Puppy Camp she is working with her own dog “Sirius Black”.

Dogs are more then just pets, they’re family. Family with really bad breath!



Holly joined Puppy Camp in February 2017. She will graduate with an Associate’s degree in the fall/ Then she is interested in continuing her schooling in physical therapy for animals. Holly has 3 dogs of her own and her parents are not fond of the chaos that ensues. ​

I love all animals and trust them more than I do people. If my dog doesn’t trust you, than neither do I.



Kelly joined Puppy Camp in August 2018.  She graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in science and plans on getting her Master’s shortly.  She has 2 sassy dogs of her own and plans on getting way more.

Dogs are what makes the world a better place.



Taylor started with us in November 2018.  She has a lot of compassion for all animals and will be going to UC Blue Ash to study Veterinary Medicine.  Taylor hopes to work at a zoo one day.

Any animal is an amazing animal.



Sarah joined us in July 2018. She is a student at University of Cincinnati.




Kait joined the Puppy Camp team in May 2018.  She only works one day a week because she is currently earning her Master’s Degree in Criminal Justice.  She plans to start a career in Community Corrections after graduation.  Kait has always had a love for animals big and small, and has been around dogs and horses her entire life..

I have a soft spot for horse-sized dogs and dog-sized horses.
