Our Philosophy is making sure every dog has its day, everyday

Metro Dogs Daycare Team

The Metro Dogs team is a strong one! We are proud of our staff at Metro Dogs and want you to feel like you’re part of our family. But we’ll be honest, we’re dog people and maybe a little people shy. So we wrote you some bios to help you get to know us more.

Wendy (owner), she/her  –  Wendy has surrounded herself with dogs, cats, and horses, her whole life. After several years in the corporate world, including a stay at 3M as a packaging engineer, she decided to sniff out a different career, so to speak. 

With the purchase of Dog Days in 2004, Wendy has been able to realize her passion for helping dogs and the people who love them. Wendy purchased Metro Dogs in February 2018. She actively oversees both companies while maintaining a great management team that runs the day-to-day operations. 

Her three previous Wheaten Terriers initially helped drive the business, but have passed over the Rainbow Bridge. Wendy is now the proud dog mom to Luke, a Goldendoodle rescue, to Olivia, a Wheaten Terrier, and to Crosby, a 3-legged cat who thinks he’s a dog.

Our Top Dogs

woman with dog - Taylor- Metro Dogs Daycare

Taylor (General Manager), she/her –  Although new to Metro Dogs in 2021, Taylor is no stranger to the Metro Dogs team. She had worked at our sister company, Dog Days St Paul, for 6 years! Her other professional jobs have included working at an animal shelter for many years, dog training, doggy daycares and boarding facilities, and at a veterinary clinic. Taylor received her Bachelor’s degree in Companion Animal Science from the U of MN. You could say animals have been her actual entire life. Taylor’s favorite part about Metro Dogs is that the goals of the business align with her own personal philosophies on dog care. Taylor lives in Northeast with her partner, her two cats, Ed and Otis, and her golden retriever, Dory (@dory_of_mpls). Taylor spends her time outdoors in any weather (Dory loves them all, rain or shine), enjoys local restaurants and breweries, and home cooking.

Jason (Assistant Manager), he/him  –  Jason has been with Metro Dogs almost since the beginning. Hired on the 1 year anniversary of MD opening, in 2012. Making a decent living in the private security field he drove by Metro Dogs one day, parked, walked in and 2 hours later was hired. He hasn’t regretted it for one second. His favorite thing about this job is the big dogs and the shy and scared ones. To Jason, nothing is more fulfilling than forming that bond. He also works with Go Anywhere Dog training and does lots of dog sitting on the side. DOGS! DOGS! and more DOGS!! He loves going on nature hikes with his 12 year old Beagle mix, Maggie, and watching an unhealthy amount of football in the fall/winter. 

woman with dog - Allison - Metro Dogs Daycare

Allison (Office Manager), she/her  –  Allison has been working at Metro Dogs since 2013 and has enjoyed every second of it! From running a dog-sitting business with a neighborhood friend as a child, working at a vet clinic as her first job, and working as Office Manager at Metro Dogs, she has always been involved with dogs in one way or another. In her free time, she enjoys hanging out with her 5 cats (yes you read that right) and spending time with her husband, Julian. She loves enjoying Minnesota summers to the max with bike rides, hikes and spending as much time as possible at the family cabin up north. She loves working at Metro Dogs because it feels like a family and treats all dogs who come through the door as her own.

Beth (Trick of the Month & Puppy Pre-K), she/her  –  Beth has been with Metro Dogs since September of 2021 as a daycare handler, and took over as trainer for Trick of the Month and Puppy Pre-K in April of 2022. She has spent her entire life surrounded by all kinds of dogs, but most frequently herding breeds (breeds that she now adores!). Growing up in the Chicagoland area and then attending the University of North Dakota for her undergraduate degree, Beth is no stranger to cold, snowy winters! Beth adores working at Metro Dogs because of how rewarding it is to get to build bonds with each dog that comes in, whether it be in group or training one-on-one. She is currently a Minneapolis resident that lives with her AHS rescue, Pete (an Aussie / Coonhound mix, not-so-surprisingly!) and adores spending most of her free time with him by her side. As of October 2021, she is working on obtaining her certification in dog training (CCDT) and hopes to complete her program in the beginning of 2023.
