"I am the owner of the Howl-a-Day Inn. Being a dog lover all of my life, I knew I wanted to work with dogs since I was a little girl. After 30 years of factory work, I decided to make that change. I started to study with Puppy Camp Day Care in Cincinnatti, Ohio.

My best friend Valeri Beltz and I started to work on the plans. Her baby Lexi went to Puppy Camp. Val came up with the name Howl-a-Day Inn. Unfortunately, within days Val was killed at the age of 38 in a terrible auto accident on April 26, 2003.

All plans came to a stop. In early 2004, Val came to me in a dream and told me to turn my life over to God and open up the day care. The rest is history. I opened in December of 2004.

At that time, I had 2 babies - 2 dobermans named Cody and Kado who have passed. I had another doberman, Savior, who unfortunately was diagnosed with myeloma cancer and Wobbler's Disease. He passed away on October 15th, 2012. I rescued Dobie, another rescue doberman, who passed away on September 29, 2009 at 8 years old. I also have Bella, a rescue doberman and Apollo, a rescue doberboy, who passed away on September 2, 2016. Both are 4 years old. I've owned a horse, hamsters, and many other animals. I have been trained in pet cpr.

I am a rescue transporter and do home visits for doberman rescues. I really believe I have found my purpose in life and God has truly blessed me to have a life I truly love. This led to me rescuing Ginger.

I share my life with a Doberman. He is my friend, my partner, my defender, and my dog. I am his life, his love, and his leader. He will be faithful and true to the last beat of his heart. I owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion."
""I joined the Howl-a-Day Inn family on June 15, 2005. I worked at a factory for seventeen years and knew there had to be a job more rewarding. I followed my heart and my passion and applied for a job at doggie day care. God answered my prayers when Cindy blessed me with the greatest job ever - a place where you not only meet the nicest people that become like family but you get to love and enjoy all different breeds of dogs who all have their own individual personalities and have their own special place in your heart for always. Each month I also enjoy writing "Dog of the Month" to celebrate one of our special furry friends.

I'm married to my best friend, Steven. We share our home with three furry kids, Ryley, a 12 year old Cairn Terrier mix, Willow, 6 year old Yorkie, and Thursday Grace, a 6 year old Cairn Terrier mix that we adopted from Teddy's Rescue.

"Dogs come into our lives to teach us about love ... they depart to teach us about loss. A new dog never replaces an old dog; it merely expands the heart. If you have loved many dogs, your heart is very big." - Erica"


"Hi! My name is Chelsea and I became a part of the Howl-A-Day Inn team at the end of October. I have a strong love and passion for a few things in life one being dogs, since I can remember I have been dog crazy. I remember always asking passerby's if I could pet their dogs, begging my mom to let me bring every stray into the house and loving my own dogs so whole heartedly in a way that only other dog lovers can understand.

I enjoy spending my days with my husband, playing with my two dogs (Pooki and Frosti) and my Calico cat (Soxi), reading a good book, and riding motorcycles. Becoming part of the Howl-a-Day family has been such a blessing because I have always believed that working with dogs as a career was my calling. I look forward to going in and spending the day with your fur babies every day!"


"Hi! My name is Lori. I have been an animal lover all my life. Nothing compares to the non judgemental, unconditional love of a dog. I have 3 fur babies at home, Frankie (pit mix) is 5 yrs, Diesel (Boxer) is 4 yrs and Gizmo (peek-a-pom) is 10 yrs. They are just as much a part of the family as my husband and my 3 kids! To be able to walk into work and be a part of something that has been a passion of mine since I was a little girl is awesome! And to walk out fully relaxed and full of love is amazing!"












We also have many other dog loving employees!
