FROM THE OWNER
Hi, my name is Danielle. I started Modern Dog in 2014 but the dream began far earlier than that. In my previous life, I worked as a drug and alcohol counselor, and walked dogs on the side, often daydreaming about opening a dog daycare.
I dreamt about providing a fun, safe space for dogs to play all day, along with all the holiday parties, themed photo shoots and fun activities that we’ve added over the last six years.
I know without a doubt that I will laugh and smile each day when I go to work, and that by far is one of the best things about my job. Sometimes I forget that I am actually the owner and my own boss, but then it hits me when I look around and see what we’ve built and remember all the hard work that went into creating the space.
I am so grateful for my husband, Jason, who has supported this dream from the very beginning and never hesitates to dive in to building the elaborate photo backdrop I envisioned or helping to transport dogs. Our human kids, Trent and Tori and fur babies, Lilly and Lucy, are often part of the fun as well.
