Owner

Sarah is the owner and operator of Cubby’s Canine Castle. In her previous career she
worked long hours and traveled extensively, spending many days and nights on the road. When she was working late or traveling, her pup Cubby went to daycare and had a blast!

She understands your need for a daycare facility to send your pup where they will receive the same high standard of care and enjoyment you provide for your dog at home. She has built Cubby’s Canine Castle with that in mind.

She is a member of the North American Dog Daycare Association (NADDA) and is a certified Pet Care Technician through the ABKA. And is a member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers.
