Redmond MEET THE TEAM

JOIN US

If you LOVE LOVE LOVE dogs, maybe you should become a Canine Coach yourself!

As Dogtopians, we're a unique breed, we love and care for your pup like our own furry family.

Our coaches are the best of the best! Everyone at Dogtopia undergoes rigorous training and a three-tiered certification process, ensuring that our pups are supervised by the most capable and the best trained team in the industry. We’re also fortunate and grateful that we have the most loving team, too!

When you call in to Dogtopia’s front desk, chances are great that you’ll hear the melodious voice of Camille on the line. As one of our two Operations Managers, she keeps the front of house running in tip-top shape, overseeing staff scheduling, parent enrollment agreements, and anything else that we think up to throw at her. With a can-do attitude and an infectious smile, Camille embodies the very essence of the job description concept of “other duties as assigned” and we love her for it.

When “not at Dogtopia” (which we are unsure is a real thing, as she is always here–always!–and we suspect she secretly lives here at the daycare and has a cot stashed in the mop closet), Camille is a student at the University of Washington, where she is pursuing a bachelor’s degree in history. She also enjoys fantasy series like Lord of the Rings and The Witcher.

In addition, Camille is an accomplished equestrian. She has been working with horses since she was twelve years old and currently owns one. She is also an exceptional photographer, a talent which we at Dogtopia routinely exploit…I mean…nurture.

  • Team Member since August 2021
  • Pictured with Echo!

Kris can be found most days in our Romper, coaching good behavior into the most raucous, rowdy, and rambunctious of our pups. She has proven time and time again as she does so that she has the patience of a saint. Given that Kris is actually an ordained minister, that makes sense.

We think Kris was born to work with dogs, though she did have a tough career choice at first: two weeks before she was offered her first dog training apprenticeship, she was accepted at LWIT for their funeral director program. She is very happy she opted for dogs, and so are we.

Kris’s favorite breed is the pit bull–she swears she will never not have one–and she currently has two pups at home. Also a lover of reptiles, Kris owns a leopard tortoise, a bearded dragon, and two leopard geckos.

Xiana, Top Dog, Part 1

Xiana Joy Rau will be the first to tell you that in the hierarchy of this corporation, she is Top Dog. At Dogtopia of Redmond, Xiana oversees the party games in the playrooms, chairs the snacks committee, and is basically in charge of pretty much everything around here so you might as well just go ahead and do what she says.

Xiana has no time for foolishness and strongly suggests that you get to the belly rubs pronto, sister. She is adamant that the name “Xiana” means “bow to me, plebian human, for I am thy superior in all ways” in Greek. (It doesn’t.) She is a master of the nosing-under-the-elbow-while-you’re-trying-to-work maneuver and enjoys typing with her face. She has decreed that she will unequivocally be doing precisely what she wants to, and should you wish to differ, she kindly proposes, with all the graciousness that she can muster, that you kiss her furry brown butt.

When the concept of “delusions of grandeur” was explained to Xiana, her takeaway was simply that she really liked this new word grandeur and subsequently declared herself the Queen of France. She considers herself a benevolent ruler with a laissez-faire leadership style.

Xeus, Top Dog, Part 2

Xeus Ozymandias Rau is much too polite to disagree with his twin sister’s assessment that she is the boss of him. He is a highly intuitive and empathic fellow, and as Dogtopia of Redmond’s self-appointed host and caretaker of newcomers to our playrooms, he gallantly upholds his bestowed title of Guardian of Guests’ Feelings.

Wholly unaware of his current 130 pounds, Xeus is under the erroneous impression that he still inhabits his runt-of-the-litter puppy body, which was all of seven pounds when he and Xiana came to live with Lady and Mister. He and his therapist are working on self-awareness and comprehension of the laws of physics, but in the meantime, Xeus would very much like to sit in your lap.

Xeus’s favorite pastimes are smelling flowers, watching butterflies, digging in the backyard, looking quizzical when he gets yelled at for digging in the backyard, and lazily taking up the majority of the surface area of a king-sized bed. He truly enjoys children—as playmates, not as tasty snacks—and is indefatigably committed to his unyielding yet never less than gentlemanly efforts for permission to order a Singapore Sling.
