Eric Moon is an Ohio native that has always had a love and passion for dogs and working with people. Eric learned how to read from reading dog books which helped spark his love for dogs and all animals. At 10 years old, he got his very first dog and their bond was unbreakable. At the age of 14, he got his first job as a dog trainer at the Pet Athletic Club in downtown Cincinnati. There he learned more about the dog business and what it takes to make it successful and a true home away from home for each pet. Through the years, he became even more educated and passionate about the pet industry. He perfected his skills and talents and developed his brand & training system called #MajorK9. MajorK9 is implemented throughout ACE Pet Resort to help improve the temperament and overall life of each pet.
McKenzie Baker joined the ACE Pet Resort team in 2017 as a kennel technician. Over the years, she has grown to work in all aspects of the business, offering a rare blend of creative and operational strengths to meet each and every animal’s needs. McKenzie took a short time off from work to start her family, consisting of two fur babies and her daughter. While home with her baby, she decided to return to ACE because she missed all of her four-legged friends and the clients that have become a part of the ACE family. Shortly after her return, she was promoted to Kennel Manager, thanks to all of her hard work and devotion to this business and couldn’t be more thrilled!
