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
Amber Sutton has always had a passion for animals and a desire to work with them. She’s spent several years volunteering at a Washington, D.C. rescue league and has always found the work rewarding. It was only natural for her to seek out a new career where she could combine her business skills with her love for animals. Amber enjoys the challenges of opening/owning her business and most of all enjoys handing a tired dog to their owner at the end of the day! Amber is passionate about her charitable work with rescues and looks forward to continuing those efforts through the business. Amber currently resides in Washington, D.C. with her husband, and her dogs Zeke & Bailey. Zeke is a happy Australian Shepherd who found his forever home with Amber after being rescued by the Washington Animal Rescue League. Bailey is a wild Corgi who is always looking for trouble. In her free time she enjoys travel, fitness and attending National’s baseball games.
