Owners Chris Braund and Karen Van Sickler
In 25 years together, Chris and Karen have raised a number of wonderful, life-enriching dogs and have also traveled extensively in their careers. They have been responsible for running cities, building software, merging corporations and leading teams that have fun and deliver exceptional service. But it’s their housemates that bring them the greatest joy, so they are purposeful in their involvement in a business that brings them into contact with so many pets and pet lovers.
