Our story begins when Dan Spangler adopted a young pup named Spanky. He had been injured in Iraq and Spanky was a constant companion as he dealt with medical issues. In 2004, he was medically retired and became a certified dog trainer. Since the, Dan and Spanky have spend much of their time helping others.
By 2010, they started A Dog’s Dream to spend their days together and help other fur-parents and fur-babies have healthy lives together. They have set the bar high by not only catering to the physical safety and needs of the dogs in their care, but also making sure they feel safe, loved and stressors are minimized.
Shortly after opening A Dog’s Dream, Dan created the Dreamer’s Foundation, a non-profit organization that has assisted in rescue efforts and recently began working with veterans to help them keep and care for their furry friends. Dan’s passion and commitment to the local community lead him to be awarded the Community Fabric Award in 2015.
Why do we do what we do? Love for our friends… including those with paws.
My dog Mila loves going to daycare and playing with the other dogs. When we arrive she is so excited to get back there to play with her friends but at the end if they day she loves to see me and she always comes home tired. All the puppy cuddles! She doesn’t like baths too much but the groomer also does a wonderful job always on doing her nails and making her smell good!

The staff has been wonderful working with our anxious pup Shadow. It's such a relief to drop him off for a day of socializing and he actually goes willingly (well most of the time anyway LOL). Can't thank them enough for their care.
My chihuahua loves the staff!
This was our Bellamay's 1st grooming visit. We love the way she is groomed. Bellamay is a 12year old peak-a-poo with bad back hips . We love that they took it very easy with her . Thank Yall.
We will see yall soon!!!!
Both my dogs smell so good, they’re incredibly clean, and their nails are trimmed to a great length! I look forward to their next grooming, which will be next month! Thank you A Dog’s Dream for taking such great care of my gals!
