Meet Our Team
Our team is made up of people that are true animal lovers, it’s as simple as that. Together we bring well over 25 years taking care of animals and providing a safe happy place for them while their parents are away or at play.
Jalene is one of the Top Dogs behind The Dog Retreat & Spa. Her love of dogs was the motivation that started this journey over 15 years ago. She’s been caring for dogs for 20 plus years in her home. She’s both fostered dogs and rescued dogs along the way. She’ll be on-site to greet all of our clients and their owners. She’ll be overseeing the staff, the care of the animals as well as making sure our facility is kept up to our standards. A fun, clean and safe place for your pup.
Ed is the other Top Dog here at The Dog Retreat & Spa. He’s the main support to Jalene, as she follows this crazy dream of opening a great facility for dogs & cats. After years of caring for dogs alongside Jalene he’s taken charge of various facets of the business, from finances, equipment management, facility build, and day to day operations. He’ll be on-site to greet the guests while making sure the building runs like a well-oiled machine.
As our lodging manager, Lisa will be in charge of coordinating the care and service for those dogs that are staying overnight with us. As a young girl she spent most of her time at her grandmother’s farm helping with chores and being surrounded by animals. Being an only child, these animals were her best friends. Since then she has worked on horse ranches, private barns and pet sitting. Animals are her passion from small to large and she loves interacting and understanding all the different personalities. She’s certified in both human and pet CPR & First Aid. She’s a pet parent to over nine kinds of animals including a Quarter Horse, chickens, cat, guinea pigs and bunnies.
Kasey has joined our team as the Daycare Manager. She has worked with dogs for almost four years, Pitbulls and French Bulldogs being her favorites. She is most passionate about helping dogs achieve their inner balance. Kasey likes Alice in Wonderland, Game of Thrones and Harry Potter. She enjoys going out to dinner and reading. As Kasey says, “Dog hair is my glitter”.
