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!

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

Meet the Owners

Meet Mike and Terri Wilson. Although huge dog lovers, Mike and Terri didn’t feel it would be fair to a dog to bring it in to their busy life.  They did not want to raise a dog who would be left at home alone for 10-12 hours a day.   It wasn’t until they found out about the existence of dog daycares that they were able to experience the joy of dog ownership and brought their first dog (Boomer) into their home.

After 30+ years working in corporate America, Mike was ready to try something new and began searching franchise opportunities.  Understanding the value of dog daycares, the Dogtopia franchise seemed like a perfect match.  Bringing an upscale daycare and boarding facility to the Sacramento area would allow other families to also experience the joy of dog ownership.

Stop in, grab a cup of coffee, and meet our awesome team that will help create the most exciting day ever for your dog.

Meet the Team

Nickole Fiola, General Manager

Nickole has been around dogs all her life. She was so fortunate to have grown up in a home that always had a dog, and/or puppies in it. Her family was into breeding golden retrievers, training and showing the dogs. Her own family dog (Three J’s Golden Rye) was a show dog that receieved multiple 1st place ribbons.

Nickole was in corporate America for over 25 years and while trying to figure out what she wanted to do when she “grew up”, the Dogtopia GM position came available She thought, “What could be better than working with dogs daily, and working for her friends Mike and Terri Wilson (the owners) again?”

The best part is she gets to bring her sweet Isabella to work with her everyday! She and her husband rescued her in October of 2017. It’s the best thing that has ever happened to them.

Now after bring in the position for over a year, she has never been happier. She feels lucky to have the best team anyone could ask for. It truly makes it a great place to work!
