Meet the Owners

Jeff and Sandy Lutton have been dog lovers all of their life. But with busy work schedules and the desire to have a dog to match their active lifestyle, Sandy is a marathoner and Jeff is a triathlete, they didn’t think it would be fair to leave a dog, let alone a retriever, at home all day alone. When a friend referred them to Dogtopia’s dog day care, they decided it was the answer to their doggie dilemma. Soon after, they brought home their long-awaited dog, a Golden Retriever, Josie.

After watching Josie’s excitement when attending dog daycare at a Dogtopia location in Tyson’s Corner, VA for several years, they found she’d sniffed out an ideal franchise opportunity for Mom and Dad; one that combines their business savvy, as well as their love for dogs.

The Lutton’s are thrilled to bring Dogtopia to the Alexandria area, which is well-known for its amazingly dog-friendly population. They’ve always enjoyed peace of mind knowing Josie was in a safe and happy place with they were at work or away from home and they look forward to prJeff & Sandy's Dogoviding that same feeling to area dog owners.

Jeff plans to devote himself full-time to the daycare operations with support and assistance from Sandy, who will continue her full time Business Development Career while adding her Marketing expertise to the Alexandria location.
