Michele Lipari, General Manager

Hi! My name is Michele Lipari and I am the General Manager of Southcoast! I have always had a passion for dogs just as long as I can remember. My BFFF is my pup Cannoli! My greatest love in life is Cannoli, my husband and son come as a close second! My amazing son Dylan ,who serves in the Marines, is always willing to lend a helping hand when it comes to Dogtopia! My husband and I have been married for 23 years and if that’s not dedication I don’t know what is. I am dedicated to making sure your dog has the best day ever! Please come in and say hi!

Mia Robles, PPRM

Hi my names Mia and I am the Pet Parent Relations Manager. I’ve had dogs my whole life and couldn’t imagine life without them. Here at Dogtopia we strive to give your dog the best day ever and my job is to make sure that happens 100%! From events to special treats I make this a place you and your dog want to be!

Lizbeth De Arcos, Receptionist / Canine Coach

My parents always told me that if you love what you do then its not a job, I definitely look forward to helping out at Dogtopia everyday and getting to meet all kinds of pups! Its a known fact that by simply petting a dog daily you’re a much happier and calmer person, so how can I not love them?! Apart from the fact that they’re so cute of course!

Cora Barras, Receptionist

Dogs are my passion! I love being able to come to work and see my bfffs everyday (best furry friends forever). Im currently in nursing school so after a long hard week its always so nice to see their smiling faces. They make my days so much better.

Courtney Thomas, Receptionist

Ive had a passion for animals since I was a child and have always wanted to work with them and do whatever I can to help. My long-term goal is to go to college for veterinary science so I can continue to love and help pets!

Billy Teutimez, Canine Coach

Dogs are better than most people! I have worked for Dogtopia for 4 years and couldn’t have found a more perfect job for me. People around here call me the dog whisperer. I love dogs of all sizes and hope to see yours soon!

Kevin Gauvain, Canine Coach

Ive always loved dogs. Working with them just came so naturally. Dogs are wonderful animals and I’m glad I get to meet so many everyday!

Jasmine Nguyen, Canine Coach

Working with dogs has been a passion for me since I was a kid and also becoming a veterinarian in the future! I love everything about them!
