Meet the Owners and Staff

Meet Kim and Kelly Campbell

In 2004, Kim and Kelly Campbell drove by a pet facility that was in need of a lot of tender, loving care.  With two little boys, and another child on the way, they took the plunge and ventured into the pet care industry.  

Kim had spent many years in corporate accounting and when they started their family, she worked as a business consultant for a large pet sitting operation.  She had the understanding of what people were looking for in the care of their beloved pets - having cried when she had dropped of their Weimariner, Lucy, at pet care facilities over the years.  

With the philosophy of relationship building with each and every guest and providing high quality pet care, the Campbells have spent the last 8 years renovating the buildings that now encompass The Dog Eaze Inn.   Kim spends much of her time on the strategic business planning for the Inn, while her trained staff oversee the day-to-day operations.

Quality care is part of the mission at The Inn, and therefore, Kim ensures that all staff participate in ongoing training programs, from industry certifications to onsite development with animal behaviorists and trainers.   Kelly owns and operates his own company, Campbell Wealth Management, and  is called upon for his small business expertise.

The Campbell's three kids are frequently at the Inn, especially during the busy summer months, to help out.  Connor , Carter , and Codie , have a love of all animals, as the Campbell pack has now grown to Lego (the orange tabby),   Coogar (the mix breed puppy),and Buster (hound mix) as well as several horses.  

Kim and Kelly are proud that they have built a solid foundation of expert pet care in a facility that was once "just a kennel".  The Dog Eaze Inn is much more than a "kennel"  - it is a full-service, high-quality pet care operation with lovely accommodations and outdoor play yards to ensure the very best for each and every guest.
