NO CAGES! Because they are family.
Dave Spenst started with the company back in 2013 at old chandler and has been a vital part of our Dogs 24/7 family and leader for multiple Dogs 24/7 locations throughout his career with us- from old Chandler Dogs to Tempe Dogs, Gilbert Dogs, and now back with us at our Chandler headquarters. Dave’s border collie, Savanah, better known as his soul dog, best girl, and side kick, has been with Dave throughout his entire journey with us at Dogs 24/7. Although his love for border collies is recognizably strong thanks to Savanna, his love for dogs doesn’t discriminate. Pups of all shapes and sizes know Dave is a kind soul and has been entrusted and adored by not only hundreds of dogs over the past years with us, but by many dog parents and coworkers as well. He is an essential member to our chandler family and is a mentor to many
Kaitlyn was hired onto our old gilbert team back in June of 2021 she was looking for companionship after losing her yellow Labrador, Tucker, a month prior in May of 2021. The relationships she grew with the pups and their parents at Gilbert Dogs quickly ignited a passion for her job and loyalty to those dogs and earned her a spot on the leadership team 6 months later after being one of the many vital roles in the grand opening of our Mesa location. After working an entire year with the pups and employees of Mesa Dogs, she was welcomed to the Chandler family with open arms. Kaitlyn has a passion for all things dogs, especially Labradors. She is especially attuned to canine behavior and is a huge dog breed geek. Wanting to learn anything and everything dog related, she was given the opportunity to join our grooming apprenticeship program in April of 2023 and will soon be a groomer as well as one of our general supervisors here at chandler dogs 24/7.
Melissa has been grooming for over 20 years! She has been with Dogs 24/7 for over 11 years as our Head Groomer. Melissa has been mastering the craft of making your dogs gorgeous at all of our East Valley locations.
Riley started at chandler over a year ago doing the over nights. When we started the Grooming apprenticeship program Riley was one of the 1st to sign up. She was doing her weekly grooming classes and still doing her overnights. She graduated March 1st and went into grooming full time and is continuing to work alongside of Melissa.
