NEW PET PARENT?
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
Kate & Vishal (And Maggie), Owners
We are honored to be part of the Dogtopia Family and to open our first store in Montgomery, NJ. For us, Dogtopia is so much more than a business. It’s a vehicle to live our values by providing a much-needed service in socializing dogs, while providing an opportunity for our team to grow into leaders, and to give back to the community with The Dogtopia Foundation. We strongly believe Dogtopia Daycare provides a natural way for dogs to socialize, exercise, and simply hang out with their BFFF’s (Best Furry Friends Forever) in a clean and safe environment, all while becoming good Canine Citizens.
The team we are assembling for Dogtopia of Montgomery is nothing short of inspiring. Team Montgomery leaders not only share our values but are so incredibly dedicated to our vision and to our Pet Parents, their pups and this community we know you will love them as much as we do!
We are excited to be partnering with local Veterinarians in offering vaccine clinics for our Pet Parents and building that strong relationship in the community. We are proud to be partnering with a local shelter in offering a pre-screened pup complimentary daycare and services to help find them their forever home. The outpouring of support and excitement from the Montgomery community has been incredible! We have been experiencing such a warm welcome and feel blessed to be a part of such a wonderful township.
Besides being happy and loving pet parents to our rescue dog Maggie, who is the inspiration for embarking on this adventure with Dogtopia, we share four human daughters as well, ages ranging 16-21 years old. Vishal has worked in the Technology Industry for over 20 years and Kate is a Certified Life Coach, lifelong community volunteer and unofficial dog whisperer. Kate trained her Golden Retriever, Dexter, to be a Therapy Dog and regularly visited a school for Autistic children with him. In our spare time Vishal loves to play golf and watch football, Kate loves to read and go hiking, and they both love to exercise, travel, and spend quality time with their family and friends.
Ivett (And PheePhee & Lucie), General Manager
Hello! I am Ivett, the General Manager of Dogtopia of Montgomery, and I am happy to start my Dogtopia Journey with Kate and Vishal. Originally born and raised in Hungary, I have had dogs all my life. Dogs are the little creatures that life gave to us; A partnership which would never fade over time. I am so happy I am able to not just unconditionally love them, but work with them and have a job about them! I am really looking forward to giving back all the love that I receive from these wonderful creatures through Dogtopia. I have two little fur babies on my own; Pheephee and Lucie who are my best friends and partners in life.
Melissa (and Fitz), Pet Parent Relationship Manager
Hi! I first became a part of the Dogtopia family when I needed a safe place for my senior pup to play when I went back to work after the pandemic. I was so impressed with the level of care they gave Fitz, and had such an amazing experience with Dogtopia that a year and a half later, I packed up my life (and my dog) and moved from the Midwest to the East Coast to work with a new Dogtopia franchise! In my free time, I enjoy taking road trips, reading, and of course, spending time with my best bud, Fitz! Fitz is an 11 year old miniature poodle mix that I rescued four and a half years ago from the zoo! He enjoys sleeping in late, playing with all his pup friends, going through the Starbucks drive through for a puppuccino, and exploring new outdoor trails with his mom!
Stacy (and Jersey & Ozzy), Operational Manager
Hi! I’m Stacy and I’ve lived in the area for over 30 years. I have a background in Human Resources however, after the pandemic, I decided to follow my passion and love for animals. I came to Dogtopia of Montgomery where every day I am greeted with wagging tails and unconditional love. There’s no better way to start my work day.
When I’m not working, I can be found hanging out with my loving dogs, my family or photographing nature.
