Leader of the Pack K9 Institute in Allentown, PA

Lisa McDonald, owner of Leader of the Pack Canine Institute, started her third year in business this January and says she will never go back to corporate America. Lisa spent twenty years as an assistant comptroller for a local business, but decided one day that pets were her passion, so she ventured off to become a very successful entrepreneur. Lisa started off by training under a local dog trainer, and then got her national certification for dog training. It started with just training, then quickly expanded to a kennel, day care, then grooming. Now she offers an all-in-one K9 facility, which is what she explains as part of the reason she has been so successful. An all-in-one K9 facility is just what her customers want, as they can bring their dog(s) to Leader of the Pack Canine Institute for a day, or overnight and get everything they want all in one place.  Another large factor in her success has a lot to do with her staff; Lisa is proud of her staff and says that they make the business with their customer service. Lisa says that 75% of her business comes from word of mouth and referrals, due to her staff’s loyalty and devotion to dogs.

Campbell Boarding Kennels in Mount Vernon, Ohio

Jeff Campbell, of Campbell Boarding Kennels, is a small kennel owner with just nine runs who clearly cares about his customers, both the people and their dogs. His devotion to his kennel and dogs, keeping them clean well exercised and healthy, goes a very long way. Each of his runs has a Kuranda bed in it. “Before I had Kuranda beds in the runs, I would go check up on them and they would hear me and get up to greet me, but not anymore," Jeff says "The dogs are sound asleep on the beds and love them.”
