About Angela

17 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
As a professional dog trainer my life has been enveloped by dogs of all shapes, sizes, and breeds! For the past few year's I have slowly been welcoming dogs I was currently working with into my home until one day I realized that this is how I want to live my life, seeing dogs happy to be on vacation. I have witnessed a dog have traumatic week's stay in veterinary or boarding kennel due to isolation, stressful over-crowding, lack of rest, or even no activity at all other than potty walks. That's no way for your best furry friend to spend their week when they could be relaxing, just like you, for the same price in my home.

I also specialize in behavioral issues, so any dog with special needs is welcome and well maintained during their stay and return home more stable in almost every case. I perform any, and all, forms of obedience training at the parents request. Prices vary according to requests, but I can assure you, as can my hundreds of references, not only will your dog have a comfortable stay in my home with plenty of activities, they will also return without the bad habits normal boarding facilities inspire, and more likely than not, with even better manners!

We have finally bought a home and expanded so we have plenty of space for 10+ dogs to have a great time in our home making new friends. However spaces fill up quickly so plan ahead to snag your pup a place he/she will thoroughly enjoy! You can also find me on Facebook under Dakota's Pals Dog Boarding & Day Camp with Kota, our favorite mascot! Feel free to contact me with absolutely any questions, concerns, or advice on training, boarding, nutrition, or behavioral limitations.

Both my significant other and I care for the dogs that we welcome into our home, thanks to our flexible schedules, dogs are left alone no more than 4 hours if both of us happen to be working that day, but it varies with our schedule. When away dogs are either crates, separated throughout the house, or able to free roam with my pack if applicable. Each dog varies according to personality and whether they are trusted to free roam their houses. We are certainly about safety first however, so if there is any doubt that the dogs may not get along while we are away, even for a short period of time, we make sure to safely crate or separate.

Please make sure that you dog is up to date on all shots and if possible provide us with records to put on file. This is important with any boarding facility, especially here at Dakota's Pals where we also work hands on with rescue dogs.

Angela was excellent! Very responsive, sent me photos of my pup, and he seemed to have an amazing time....practically didn't want to come home with me!
As usual, Angela was great with Townes and did an excellent job communicating with me. Pick up and drop off was really easy and I'll definitely continue to work with Angela in the future.
Had a awesome experience with Angela... She made it so easy for us and my Isa had a great time. I will be back for sure for our next vacation...
Angela is an absolute delight. She was extremely flexible when we had some hiccups with our flights and easy to communicate with. Will DEFINTELY be back!
Angela was so easy to work with to schedule drop off and pickup. Bella loved her stay and was totally comfortable with Angela from the start. It was especially nice to get a text from Angela to let me know how Bella was doing during her stay. I would definitely recommend Angela.

Angela took great care of Townes and provided excellent communication and photos throughout his stay.
If you're looking for a qualified, friendly, and attentive dog sitter for your fur baby, Angela is your girl. I have a high maintenance dog breed and don't let just anyone watch him. She sent photos to keep me updated, kept in constant communication through text if she needed to leave the house or make a reservation change. Her house is set up for dogs of all sizes and very little, if any crate time for the pups each day. She even clipped my buddy's nails at no extra charge!! I have used this service before and have been unlucky in the past with some sitters... this time I've found a keeper!!!

This was our first time having to board our dogs and we were looking for a better option than having them somewhere sitting in a cage all day. Major and Maya are young German Shepherds and although they've had a lot of training and are good dogs, they can be a handful. After reading about Angela and her experience as a dog trainer I knew she'd be able to handle them. We got a really good vibe after meeting her and her dogs. They were so well behaved and very accepting of our dogs. I was confidant our dogs were going to fit right in and have lots of playing to do to keep them busy. Angela said that our normally shy Maya even came out of her shell enough to instigate play with one of the other dogs! We would definitely take them to Angela again if the need arises.

Angela is a great with our girl Rosa. She was accommodating to take our last minute reservation, and even made our pick up easier. Would use her anytime again.
My pup Ramona has a great time staying with Angela. Even though she can be unsure around other pups, Monq made fast friends with one of Angela's dogs and loved playing all weekend. I appreciated the Angela texted me updates. She and her housemates seemed to really love dogs and I would definitely use her services again.

Angela was fantastic! Atlas enjoyed her stay with her and I think she came back home better behaved! I would definitely leave our dog with Angela again! She updated us with pictures and videos of Atlas. A true dog lover!
My dog Minnie loved her stay with Angela. She loved hanging out with Angela's other dogs and getting to run and run and run outside - perfect for an active dog. Angela was friendly, helpful and flexible. We'd definitely have her watch Minnie again!
She responded very quickly! :) Teddy seemed to have enjoyed his stay with Angela a lot!!!
Angela was fantastic!
As always, it's a pleasure to leave our dog with Angela. I can always feel at ease knowing that he's having a great time!!
We always feel good about leaving our dog at Angela's house. There is always someone there to look after the dogs, and he enjoys playing with the other dogs there. We like how she sends us pictures of his stay. She genuinely cares about her dogs and is a good trainer, which gives me confidence that our dog is in good hands.

We brought our dog Viggo to Dakota's Pals in December and he had a great time! Even though he doesn't need much exercise, I think he really enjoyed all of the open space. Angela updated us with pictures throughout his stay and it felt like he was the one on vacation-not us! We felt very comfortable knowing that she was so familiar with behavior and training. We will definitely be bringing Viggo back to Dakota's Pals again!

I had a great experience with Angela! She was very friendly and accommodating in taking by dog, Bishop, on short notice. She provided a great place for him to play with other well-trained dogs and Bishop had a great time - Angela even sent me a pic of Bishop hanging out with one of his new buddies.
