Jenna Kapfhammer
Boarding Lead

Our boarding team is led by Jenna. Born and raised in Louisville Kentucky, Jenna has always had a passion for animals, and has owned many herself— maybe too many. She started helping manage her family’s farm at a young age which taught her a strong work ethic early on. That began her love for the great outdoors, and everything involving nature. She uses her desire of helping others by caring for all the pets, and insuring their owners that their furbabies are getting the best care possible at The Pet Station. If she’s not caring for the dogs/cats boarding with us she can be found in the woods of Henry County preparing for hunting season, or on the lake fishing and kayaking.

Carole Arnett
Head Trainer
Read Bio

Our trainer, Carole, is an Associate Member of the International Associate of Canine Professionals (IACP) and a certified AKC Canine Good Citizen evaluator. Born and raised right outside of Louisville, in the small town of Pewee Valley, Carole loved spending time teaching their family dogs tricks, but it was at her first job at age 15 working at a dog kennel that her fascination with learning about all the different breeds was born. Before pursuing dog training, she went the traditional college route, graduating from Sullivan University with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in Hospitality & Tourism Management, ultimately landing in the beauty salon industry. It wasn’t until she adopted her behaviorally challenged dog, Otis the Aussiedoodle, that her passion for understanding canine behavior and learning how to change it was ignited. Carole acquired her knowledge of dog behavior and training by apprenticing under Certified Dog Trainers and Behavior Specialists Scott Burnley and Emily Urchuck, self-study, and leading the Daycation program for almost 2 years. In that time, she adopted her Australian Shepherd mix Hank, who sparked her love for trick training. Sadly, Carole’s time with Otis was cut short, as he was suffering from a brain tumor. Not long after Otis crossed over the Rainbow Bridge, Carole took in a foster dog, Weezie, who also has her fair share of behavioral challenges. Hank and Weezie bonded quickly, and it didn’t take long for Weezie to officially become Carole’s first foster-fail.
