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.
I love bringing my dogs here, I use all of the services they offer here and I have no complaints! If any problems occur the staff goes up and beyond in trying to fix the problem and to make you are happy and satisfied. When my dogs board here & when I call for updates they go up and beyond to send me pictures and updates on them and I appreciate it more than anything.
My pups love it here - they do come home nice and tired after doggy daycare.
I personally highly recommend a dogs dream.
Thank you Dan & to the staff here for always taking care of my dogs you guys rock!
Took good care of our dogs when we had to make an unexpected trip.
Excellent grooming, well organized, pet friendly.
I am changing my review to 5 stars! I received a phone call to personally apologize for the mishap with Daisy’s daycare package expiring and A Dogs Dream more than made it right. Owners explained it was a software issue and they gave me my pre purchased days back. And assured me the days will not expire in the future. Thank you Laura for your professionalism!
We purchased multiple days for our dog to stay while we work and were satisfied with the service. Daisy developed Kennel Cough and the vet said not to take her back for a while. When we carry her back after getting better and getting fixed we are told her days had expired. I don’t understand how days you have paid for expire. Package buyer beware!
