We welcomed Olivia to The Grinning Dog team in June 2019. With a dry sense of humor, a ready smile and a steady manner she is responsible for the care and comfort of both daycare and overnight guests. Olivia can frequently be found perched next to a quiet dog, enjoying some One on One time. She may well be our petting specialist!
"I'm a California transplant who recently graduated from Mount Holyoke College. A longtime animal lover, I grew up with boxers, cats, rats, and frogs (and guinea pigs, canaries, crickets... you get it). I've worked previously providing playtime and endless scritches for dogs and cats in my hometown kennel and shelters. In my off hours, I enjoy experimenting in the kitchen, traveling, doing craft projects, and horseback riding. Though (or maybe because) I have no pets of my own at the moment, I'm excited to get to know all of your doggy families! "
What Our Clients Are Saying
"Alison and her staff provided exceptional care to not only my dog but also to me..." A. B.
"The best. Alison and her staff are terrific. My dog, Rem, hadn't spent any time boarded before we got here and he loved it there. I don't know how the dogs are all so calm, but they are. I'm lucky this is near by me. " Betsy N.
"We miss him, but we never worry about him when he's there. Wonderfully competent crew. Beautiful surroundings." Bruce K.
