Our Team

Send the right signals, get the right results. Our staff is well-trained and educated in dog related fields such as psychology, animal behavior, behavior modification, etc. We believe the best way to teach a dog is to properly train the person who will be teaching them. We are proud that our employee turnover is very low, and that our clients get to know the staff who care for you dogs. Some of our staff have been at DGH several years and have watched your dogs grow up! We strive for positive long-term relationships with both our dogs and clients.

A little about the two-legged creatures at DGH:

Zoe Trainer + Co-Owner

     After working professionally as a pet sitter, horse trainer, and dog walker for years, Zoe went on to continue her dog training education with Columbia Dog Training School at The Charlton Kennels. As a trainer's assistant she worked with many dogs of all different shapes and sizes. More recently she has started her own training company, Rascal Training, offering in-home training, walks, and board and train programs.

Haley Operations Manager + Co-Owner

     Haley is a Portland native, born and raised. She is coming up on her five year anniversary of working here at DGH! To say the least her love of dogs of all shapes and sizes has been lifelong. Ever since she was a little girl she had the habit of fangirling over every dog she saw, asking the obvious question, “Can I pet your dog?!” 

 

     When she is not fawning over her dog friends, Haley loves the arts like theater and painting. She studied Acting for two years and graduated with the class of 2020 at Portland Actors Conservatory, something she has always dreamed of achieving. Haley is so pleased to be back full time here at DGH after being a full time student. Haley hopes to have it all now, working at DGH by day and pursuing theatre arts by post shift. 

     Haley also provides in-home pet sitting services! You can contact her with any questions you have about her services at haleynovasio@gmail.com.
