Our Team

From the individualized care our canine-loving staff provides to playtime with other four-legged friends, your dog has never had this much fun! Our team understands the key elements to a happy pup and we find great joy in incorporating them into our daily activities. We believe every single one of our Campers deserves premier treatment, which is why you'll receive all of the great benefits of Camp at one upfront cost.

    Hailey Assistant Dog Trainer

    Hailey began her career working at CBW Metro about a year and a half ago as a Camp Counselor. She was quickly promoted to Assistant Manager. In addition to her other duties, Hailey recently became an Assistant Dog Trainer!

    Hailey enjoyed watching Kim Newell, our Certified Dog Trainer, teach our clients’ dogs how to sit, stay, down, leave it, walk on a leash, coming when called, and other behavioral corrections such as aggression and jumping. Hailey finds it rewarding when working with a dog and watching him or her learn proper behavior. Hailey continues to work with Kim and had 15 hours of supervised training.

    Hailey graduated from Western Carolina University with a degree in Forensic Anthropology. Hailey grew up with dogs and is adopting a rescue dog in the next few weeks. Hailey and her husband, Vincent, reside in Charlotte.

    As an Assistant Trainer, Hailey is available to train Board & Train Campers and Play & Train Campers.
