After years of working as a veterinary assistant and managing a boarding/daycare facility, the opportunity to open Kloud 9 was a dream come true. Her mission, as the primary caretaker, is to provide a safe, fun, enriching and stress-free environment for every fur baby in our care.
Her training philosophy centers around building trust, teaching and rewarding desired behaviors with positive reinforcement, strengthening relationships between dogs and their people, and being fair and consistant. Training should also be fun for both dog and human.
With a background in construction and engineering, Jereme makes sure everything around the resort is safe and working properly. He has raised and cared for dozens of animals throughout his life. When he isn't building or fixing something, he is giving the best back scratches and belly rubs around.
Alex grew up surrounded by more animals than people. She has raised dogs, cats, chickens, hamsters, parakeets, turtles, lizards, and even a "wild" spider, who she named George.
She has been training and competing in dog agility for over 6 years. She enjoys teaching agility, obedience, and tricks. Dogs tend to fall completely in love with her, often within minutes of meeting her.
Bella is a 6 year old Border Collie/Aussie mix, also known as a "Bossy". She is our agility demonstrator and howling coach. She has been training and competing in agility trials almost since birth. She enjoys convincing humans to do things like rub her belly on demand, take her for a car ride, and toss a ball so she can play keep away.
Bella also allows Jen to continue believing that she is, in fact, her biological mother, despite the physical impossibility of a human giving birth to a puppy.
Duke, also a 6 year old Border Collie/Aussie mix, is our head of security and does a pawsome job alerting the staff to everything from arriving guests to feeding time (which he would prefer to have every hour if he could). He enjoys story telling, sleeping on Papa's pillow, and will breakdance for anything yummy.
Shadow, a 13 year old Lab mix, is our most senior furry staff member and handles all lounging and relaxing activities. She can show your mellow or older pup the most comfortable places to snooze the day away.
