Meet the Staff
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 (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 46 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 2014. For seven years she had been a kennel manager and supervisor in Chicago, Atlanta, & Cincinnati. She was also a trainer and she volunteered shelters. Stacy is a part of our Overnight Dog Sitting Group.
I’m have a strong passion for the well being of all animals!
I’m just a big animal person, dogs, cats, any animal!
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.
I have a passion for animals and always wanted to work with dogs.
Sarah joined Puppy Camp in July 2018. Sara is a Vet Tech student at Cincy State and she’s a bartender in the evening so she only works for us 2 mornings a week. Her dream is to one day work at an exotic animal rescue.
I’ve always wanted to work with animals, ever since I was 4. My love for all dogs and furry creatures is something I was born with. “Everything I know I learned from dogs.” -Nora Roberts
Dogs are more than just pets, they’re family. Family with really bad breath!
Winnie started in October 2020 (she’s our Covid hire). Winnie is now one of our Assistant Managers and part of our Overnight Dog Sitting group. Winnie loves all animals, but dogs are her favorite. She has had a lot of different jobs in her life, but what she really wants is to own a farm someday. Winnie has 4 dogs of her own.
I love working at Puppy Camp because it makes my dogs happy.
Sammie joined Puppy Camp in August 2021. Sammie is a Fashion Major, but not currently in school. When she’s not working at Puppy Camp she is working on at least 15 projects at once. In February 2022 she’ll start working as a “Ghost Tour Guide” it’s another big interest. She has 1 dog named Koda.
I have a lot of interests, but I’ve always loved dogs the most. They help me as much as I help them.
Growing up I was that annoying kid always asking to pet your dog.
I love being around all the dogs, it’s like being away from reality for a brief moment.
My dream is to own an animal rehab center.
