Meet Cady

Manager of Safety Programs

Memphis born and raised, Cady encapsulates southern hospitality and hardworking mentality to a tee. Her loving family and first dog Dash set building blocks for Cady’s passion of animal care from the beginning. Her southern roots followed her to the University of Alabama in Huntsville, where her soccer prowess led her to experience, high-pressure situations, excellent teamwork, and leadership capability. She used what she learned on the field to become the manager of one of the most successful dog boarding facilities in the country for 8 years. In turn, Cady decided to use her expertise to help elevate other facilities. As Safety Manager, Cady trains each center’s staff on Off-Leash Play Safety, Understanding Dog Language, Pet CPR, and ensures each center is following all Safety Guidelines.
