We Really Believe in This Stuff



Everyday we get to be a part of something bigger than ourselves. Providing inspiration to dog parents who need it. Getting our message out there. Helping customers learn how to change the course of their relationship with their dogs. Educating the dog owner how to speak “dog”. Making the connection between dog and owner is the goal for us. It’s why we do what we do. Work that changes lives, work that gives inspiration.

Work in Your Strengths

Our goal is to help position each team member in a role that plays to their strengths, that sets them up to shine…to win. Know yourself well enough to know what you do well, and just as importantly, what you don’t.

Win or Lose as a Team

Our team openly collaborates to create remarkable experiences that positively impacts lives. Everyone on the team is responsible for bringing new ideas, perspectives and solutions to the table. Starting with day one, we want your voice as part of the conversation. Collaboration does not equal positioning and pushing others off the ladder. Rather, collaboration has the ability to benefit your paycheck.

Have a Life

Life is important, and we want you to have one (feel free to add that to the list of employee benefits)! If normal is having to miss family events, pulling teeth to get time off and feeling like you have to choose between work and family– then weird sounds good.

But hey, don’t just take our word for it. . .our team will tell you, all the pets need great care but we work darn hard to help you get to do the other things in your life too.

About Our Company

We’re a privately-owned and operated company comprised of over 40 people that make up 6 service areas (our version of departments), focused on a single mission:
 “Meyer’s provides experienced based, canine education and services to improve the canine/human relationship which gives INSPIRATION to everyone from the dog enthusiast to the dog owner.”
