I come from a family of dog lovers and have grown up with dogs my whole life, so I know how a furry family member can complete your family. When I started working at Premier Pups six years ago I couldn’t have asked for a better job. Being able to provide happiness to families every day, and help them bring the joy of a new fur baby to someone’s home is the ultimate dream job.

I absolutely love all animals. I have had the pleasure of growing up on a farm and experiencing that lifestyle. Dogs have always been my favorite! I rescued my Goldendoodle 2 years ago and she is my pride and joy. I’ve had the pleasure of working for Premier Pups 3 years and one of the things I love most about it is getting to know our customers and helping them find the perfect fit for their family. It is always so exciting watching our customers faces light up when they receive their forever furbaby

Chelsie - Puppy Care Manager / Emergency Consultation
Having 12 years of experience working with animals, getting to share and utilize my knowledge to care for the little ones here at Premier Pups has been amazing! Making sure the pups are as healthy and happy as possible is always my number one priority. Managing the kennel staff has given me the opportunity to educate the rest of the staff on what it takes to ensure each pup is as healthy as can be. I get so attached to some of the pups that sending them home can be tough! But I am always sure to call and check on each pup that goes home to make sure they dont miss us too much!
Favorite Breed(s): French Bulldogs, Teddy Bear
