Meet the Team
After an engineering career in the Automotive Industry with Ford, I was looking for a new challenge so we started Dogtopia of Crestview in 2019 which combines my love for animals, business, and my daughter, Anna. I have been a dog owner my entire life and currently have two golden retrievers, Wally and Wilson. My wife and I foster dogs from the local Humane Society so we are used to having a house full of dogs. Our mission at our Dogtopia is to treat your dog like our own, have fun, and create a lasting relationship with you and your furry friend.
Anna, General Manager
Growing up in Michigan, I have had a love for dogs my entire life. After graduating from Michigan State University and going into the marketing field, I spontaneously quit my job to go volunteer at a dog shelter in Cusco, Peru. It was there that I fell in love with my dog, Chicho, and decided to fly him back home. We decided to then move to Austin in August 2017. My dad and I shortly after decided to open Dogtopia. It is such a fulfilling experience to make connections with all of the pet parents as well as their dogs! Seeing dogs come out of their shell to make a best friend is the highlight of my job!
Joe, Lead Canine Coach
Hey there! My name is Joe, and this beautiful beast is Lucy! I’ve been working for Dogtopia since the beginning of 2020 and for over a decade before that I have done just about everything from vet work, dog training even animal nutrition. I have been obsessed with animals since I was a child and I do my best everyday to show the furry kids in our care the same love they show us. My favorite part about working here is helping the nervous and scared dog’s come out of their shell and thrive in the room and become the dog they were meant to be.
Baylee, Pet Parent Relations Manager
I am a vegetarian and animal lover who grew up in Marble Falls, TX. I graduated from Tarleton State University with a Bachelors of Business Management. My girlfriend and I have settled in Lago Vista with our two fur babies, Marilyn (in the picture) and Gabbie. It is my goal to make pet parents and their fur babies happy. I think it is safe to say I found my dream job with Dogtopia.
Morgan, Canine Coach
My name is Morgan and this is my dog Rider! I grew up in Mississippi and moved to Texas when I was 16 and Rider was 6 months old. I grew up with Boxers, Pekingese, and Bulldogs and volunteered at a vet clinic since I was 13. I started working at Dogtopia when we opened in August 2019. My favorite part of working here is seeing all the dog’s happy faces every day!
Max, Canine Coach/Rover
My name is Max and this is my dog Captain! I am dog enthusiast and animal lover currently working on my Zoo and Aquarium Science certification. I’ve been a Rover and a Canine Coach at Dogtopia since December 2019. In my free time I illustrate children’s books and spend time with my lovely partner.
Morgan, Canine Coach
I have a passion for healthcare and I’m attending ACC to be an EMT. When I’m not at work or school I’m at home watching movies with my Corgi, Sloan. My favorite part about working at Dogtopia is spending the day with the dogs who come to daycare every day!
Cory, Canine Coach
I’m Cory and this is Odette. She is an 11 year old rescue who has chronic seizures that I adopted about 6 months ago. I started working for Dogtopia shortly after moving to Austin at the end of 2019. Even with my full time job on the week days, I love spending my weekends with all the amazing dogs at Dogtopia. I also do pet sitting and walking for Rover in my free time, that’s how much I love being around dogs and all animals of all shapes and sizes. When I’m not working or spending time with my son, Odette and I love going for bike rides around Austin checking out all the beautiful sites or just staying in and playing PC games.
This is my dog, Chai, and I! I grew up in Dallas and Houston and have always loved dogs. I had a black Lab growing up as well as two Chihuahuas. I started working at Dogtopia in January 2020 and am a full time Rover. My favorite part about working here is seeing Chai make friends and getting to meet so many new dogs!
