Chip & Jo Ann Wickens, Owners

Chip and Jo Anne Wickens are the Owners of Dogtopia of Arcadia. Chip has had a lifelong love of all animals, but dogs hold a special place in his heart. Following a successful career as a commodity trader, he decided it was time to try something new. Chip grew up dreaming of being a veterinarian but he and organic chemistry just didn’t mix. Now he gets to fulfill his dream of working with dogs on a daily basis!

Jo Ann has happily been surrounded by dogs since marrying Chip 26 years ago. She is combining her background in public relations and retail to handle marketing, PR and the front office for Dogtopia of Arcadia.
