MEET THE PACK

Our Pack Leaders:

portia 017 (6)Portia, Owner

Portia left the hectic world of internet marketing to join the Central Bark™ pack in 2006. From her pre-school days helping her next door neighbor – a Siberian husky breeder – to training with an Olympic equestrian trainer in her teens, Portia has been involved with large and small animals for her entire life. In fact, she reports that she can’t remember a time in her life when she didn’t have at least one four-legged creature to feed before her dinner!

After surviving the internet bubble burst in 2001, it was only a matter of time before she realized that she needed more than a few pixels on a page to keep her motivated. When she began searching in earnest for a business to help her realize her dreams of working with animals – and dogs in particular – she quickly decided a doggy day care – and Central Bark™ – was the way to go..

 

Justin

Justin Baumann moved to Philadelphia from Minneapolis in 2006. Justin worked as a front services manager for various hotels across a 12 year career that saw him living in many locations across the country. Justin settled in Philly after meeting his wife Lisa who shares his love of animals in their home in Point Breeze. They are the proud caretakers of the residence for Doug the Frenchie and Ramona the cat who rule the roost!
