Carlee Morin

Obedience Trainer
December 7, 2021

Carlee grew up in the quiet corner of Connecticut in Pomfret on a large working farm. From summers of baling and stacking hay to around the clock husbandry care for a variety of animals including cows, horses, turkeys, chickens, pigs, sheep, goats, and many farm dogs; she was raised with an incredible work ethic and unwavering grit. After graduating high school with a degree in animal science she was still unsure if she wanted to pursue college as a veterinarian. Lucky for her, there was an opening at a local small animal veterinary hospital where she was a technician for several years. Carlee then wanted to broaden her experience even more and worked as a technician for a large animal clinic assisting with wellness exams, breeding programs, lameness exams and x-rays, as well as an embryo transfer program for the dairy cow program.

Always looking for another challenge, Carlee eventually decided to rescued a side kick of her own, a mutt she named Bentley, from the Connecticut Humane Society. As she would say, Bentley was the biggest PITA always challenging her and not listening. Soon she came to realize the passion that she had for training dogs and educating people. She decided to change her career and pursued an Apprentice Trainer position at Quinebaug Kennels.  Carlee successfully graduated in the intense 3 month training program and became by a full-time canine trainer at Quinebaug Kennels. Carlee loves to educate people on strengthening their relationship with one-on-one private lesson as well as the board and train programs.  She truly embraces helping each client achieve their goals by learning how to communicate more clearly to their beloved canine companions.

Carlee enjoys her personal time helping her family working on the farm, outdoor adventures with friends, and taking Bentley on trail rides with her horse Rocket.
