Hello, my name is Barbara. I have been working at Camp Jean’s since 2007. I am living a dream of spending time with many dogs of various breeds, and I get paid!

I have always loved dogs and growing up I couldn’t have any pets. When I started raising a family, and believing that animals where an important part of a child’s life, my husband and I added dogs, cats, etc. to our brood of four children.

I currently have a Cairn Terrier named Ian. In fact, looking for a good Day Care and Boarding facility is how I came to know Camp Jean ‘s. I instantly fell in love with Jean’s facility. It offers the dogs as little or as much yard that they could want or need; as well as a multiple indoor facility when the weather doesn’t cooperate. My Ian loves to run and Camp Jean ‘s gives him that opportunity. I believe that God gave us animals for our pleasure. He also gave us dominion over them (which, I believe, also means a responsibility to care for them). Knowing Jean feels the same way my husband and I are comfortable that Ian is loved, cared for and having a good time when he is here.

Sue and Jean met when they worked at a local kennel together in 2005. Sue has worked at Camp Jeans since 2013 and her calm gentle way with the dogs makes them all love her. The dogs get to see her smiling face 3 days a week which makes them feel comfortable to see the same person that they know they can trust.
