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.
Great place to board dogs. Staff kind and helpful.
I took a tour and it was clean and the different areas are with Webcam the employees were very friendly and seem to care for each of the animals. I am very satisfied with this place and would suggest it to everyone.
Dan and his team are great. The facility is clean and inviting... and did I mention the pool! Spoiled puppies everywhere at A Dogs Dream, just like it should be. I highly recommend!
This was my 2nd visit to A Dog's Dream. Once again, VERY VERY pleased.
My dog is so much happier with her haircut in the hot weather. I recommend doing them to everyone.
