Director of Operations & Trainer
Kristopher started his career with animals working as a Manager of a busy shelter for six and a half years. There he was introduced to dog training and worked with his first mentor, selecting dogs from other rescues. He moved on to work as a dog walker and resort manager at a new facility that had a large clientele. He learned from two trainers and continued co-teaching classes while managing a dog resort. After 12 years, he developed "Foundation Training"; a positive-based method focused on keeping dogs fully engaged and their lives enriched. He started with Our Family Pet Sitting in June 2018 and quickly advanced to his role as Director of Operations. His plan is to continue training and enriching the lives of all the guests that stop by.
Grooming Salon Manager
Ashley has always loved caring for animals. For as long as she can remember, she was dog sitting for friends, family, and neighbors. In 2013 after graduating from high school, Ashley started working full-time at a grooming salon. It was then that she realized her passion was for grooming dogs. She attended a private academy in 2015, learned how to cut hair, and has been professionally grooming full-time since. Ashley feels blessed to run her own salon. With the help of her family and staff at OFPS, she is living her dream every single day! Honey Bee (pictured) was adopted by Ashley from WISH.
