If this is your pup’s first time at Dogtopia, there are a few things pet parents should prepare prior to rewarding your dog with the most exciting day ever!
At Dogtopia, our passion is giving every single dog the best-individualized care with their health, safety, and comfort as our top priority! Our home away from home environment is the perfect place for your pup to learn, play, and socialize with their BFFF (Best Furry Friend Forever).
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, Owner/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. 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.
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.
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!
Nissa, Front Desk
Hi, I’m Nissa and this is my dog Poke! Growing up in El Paso, TX, my household always had at least four dogs running around. Having dogs around always brought so much joy and love to our household and we aspired to fill their lives with the same. At 17, I adopted Poke and moved to Austin with my boyfriend to attend Texas State University. It has been a dream to work at Dogtopia where I get to meet new furry faces everyday with a crew of amazing people!
Maddie, Canine Coach
I’m Maddie, and this is Marki. She’s not my dog, but she’s one of the fantastic Orange Dot dogs I work with at the Austin Animal Center in my free time. While volunteering at at AAC and working with the wonderful Dogtopia dogs takes up most of my summer, I also am attending Colorado State University to get a degree in Zoology. I love working with dogs through force/fear-free training, and getting to know them and their individual quirks. I’m especially partial to pitbulls, but I love alllll the pups!
Hi, my name is Ireland and this is my baby, Legend! I have always loved all animals and I’m so passionate about making connections with all puppers that come through Dogtopia!
