Meet the Team
The Goff Family, Owners
At Dogtopia of Boise-Greenbelt, we are proud to say that we are locally owned by Dale and Kelley Goff. Their journey to opening up Dogtopia started when they moved to Boise in 2018 from Seattle Washington.
Dale and Kelley knew as their children got older, they wanted to move to a small town with just as much opportunity as Seattle. Their search for a new home led them to fall in love with the Treasure Valley and move to Boise, Idaho. After 4 years of living in Boise they decided they wanted to bring the Dogtopia franchise to Garden City.
The Goff family knew that Dogtopia was the perfect business for them to open due to the ethical business practices that Dogtopia stands by. Dogtopia not only is a doggie daycare and overnight facility, but they also have a nonprofit call The Dogtopia Foundation. One of the aspects of the nonprofit that caught the attention of the Goff Family was they offer employment opportunities to adult with autism. This hit home for them because they have two adopted children from Russia, Tate and Koa. Tate now works with us at Dogtopia as a Caine Coach!
Dale is not only our proud owner but also the president of Dogtopia of Boise-Greenbelt. He helps with day-to-day operations and makes sure that his staff and pet parents are as satisfied as can be.
Colton Jaroma, General Manager / Certified Trainer
Meet our General Manager. Colton has been working in animal behavior for the past 15 years. Colton started his career in New England working with marine mammals where he trained Beluga whales and California sea lions.
He also worked training service dogs for children with disabilities at that time and felt this was a much more needed service. So, he shifted to his passion of working on canine behavior and health. This experience connected him immediately with our Noble Cause of sponsoring service dogs for veterans with disabilities.
Colton is a Certified Pet Dog Trainer (CPDT), certified as a Canine Behavior Consultant (CBCC), is a Fear-Free Certified Trainer, and worked at a local veterinary clinic as a surgical technician.
I guarantee you will find Colton to be a true asset for you, as much as we do, to advise on the health and happiness of your pup.
