Meet the Owner

My name is Carrie Ann Ventre and I own and manage Academy Kennels. The picture you're looking at is a
favorite of my Father, so I included it on my website just for him. (you're welcome Dad) But don't let the picture fool you, I really am a down-to-earth small town girl that doesn't mind getting her hands dirty. I grew up in Cincinnati and have been around animals for as long as I can remember. My own personal babies are a Yellow Lab named "Rudger", and a Pug named “Remington” both who I have raised from pups. I have spent nearly my entire professional life working with and around animals, both wild and domestic. I have over 20 years experience in feeding, cleaning, training, and caring for animals. I have 15 years of actual Boarding Kennel experience, the last 10 years of which has been as the owner and operator of my own business. I remember being told as a little girl, you should "Do what you love or love what you do." I am blessed that I am doing both. Caring for and pampering furry little companions has become a way of life for me and I would love the opportunity to share that with you and the furry members of your family. Please make Academy Kennels your pets "Home away from home", you'll be glad you did.

Thank you,

Carrie Ann
