Members of the My Dog Pack
Cathi Erb is the owner of My Dog's Care Center, and is shown with her German Shepherd Dogs, Indie and Xena. Cathi formed My Dog's Beauty Shop in 2006 as a home-based grooming business. With thanks to God for his grace and direction along with her loyal client base, she was able to purchase a commercial building in 2013. This enabled her to better meet the needs of her clients by providing additional space to add daycare and boarding. The name may have changed to My Dog’s Care Center but the goals have not changed since the inception of the business. They are to provide home-like care and exceed industry standards, offer 24/7 on-sight monitoring and employ a blended team of educated dog lovers to help. The My Dog family takes pride in caring for dogs differently than their competitors.
Grooming Manager / Senior Team Leader

Mary has been part of the My Dog family for many years and is truly an integral part of the business. She can be seen in the grooming room, at the front desk and helping in the main office. Her soft spoken personality seems to connect with dogs that are uncomfortable being groomed. Mary is a blessing to every department she works in, as long as she can be with dogs!
Amy with her Schnauzer/Miniature Pinscher mix, Trixie. She also has a bearded dragon named George who was unable to make the photo shoot! Amy has a strong background in both customer support and marketing. Her outstanding attitude and fun personality make her a pleasure to work with. Dogs respond to sincerity and with Amy's work ethic and versatility she is able to assist Care Team when needed to help with the dogs in our care. She is a creative force and a great asset to the My Dog family.
H.R. and Company Treasurer
Joyce is Cathi and Dave's mom, HR Consultant and Treasurer of My Dog. She is pictured with her Malti-poo named Biscuit. Joyce is retired from a long career in Human Resources and has been selflessly helping build the business since its inception in 2006. Although Joyce is behind the scenes, her love, generosity and experience in many areas are a pillar of the business. She is respected and well-liked by all and we are grateful for her unending and widespread support.
Front Office Manager
Joanie (Front Office Manager) pictured with her dogs Mini and Tala (Mastiff and German Shepherd Dog). Joanie has a wonderfully diverse background in the medical field along with breeding Great Danes, kennel and even prior grooming experience! Her attention to detail, organizational skills, knowledge of dog care and previous experience make her a great asset to the My Dog family.
Care Team Manager
Hillary (Care Team Manager) pictured with her dogs Orion and Athena (Siberian Huskies). Hillary had nearly a decade of kennel experience prior to joining the My Dog family. She has a beautiful, calm energy and non-threatening persona that allow her to effectively care for dogs of many personalities and play styles. Her experience, knowledge in the industry and genuine love for dogs are of great value to the team. You can rest assured that your dog will be cared for properly when in the care of Hillary and our Care Team.
Bathing Team Leader
Dave (Bathing Team Leader), pictured with his dog Buddy (Miniature Schnauzer). Dave started in 2008 as a bather and continues to selflessly contribute his assistance to any team that needs help. His friendly and unassuming personality make Dave a pleasure to be around and work with. He rarely encounters resistance from the dogs because he is gentle and they instinctively know that he won't hurt them. Working with dogs and being the brother of the owner can be labor-intensive and we are always grateful that Dave willingly lends a hand!
Heather (Groomer) is pictured with Max, her rescued Husky mix. Heather is a Harmony resident, avid Pens fan and outstanding groomer! She has a quiet personality, calm demeanor and steady pace that helps keep the dog she is caring for settled down. Heather's training and experience afford her the ability to groom many breeds, however she has a special fondness and talent for larger breeds such as doodles, shepherds and husky's.
Megan (Groomer) pictured with her Boxer and Boxer Mix, Ava and Tyson. Megan has several years under her belt as a groomer. She is a great listener and able to help our clients figure out what is best for their dog's grooming needs. Megan always has an upbeat and optimistic attitude, that compliments her infectious smile. Maybe that's why dogs and people respond to her so well. Equally as important, she is an outstanding groomer!
Valerie, shown with her prior foster dog Sam. Val was trained as a professional groomer in the state of Hawaii. She has a gentle personality that helps dogs to relax while she treats them to loving and professional spa treatment. Her experience and great attitude are an asset to our team. She possesses outstanding customer service skills and understands that each dog is unique. We are thankful that she chooses to share her talents with My Dog and its clients.
Demax, Husky mix is shown with his owner Nikki (Professional Bather). Nikki loves all things animals and is grateful to work in a position that suits her desires and talents perfectly. Her experience with a variety of breeds and personalities are assets to My Dog - and our furry clients as well. She has training as a groomer but prefers to work on the front lines with the bathing team and we are thankful for that!
Thor loves going to daycare 3 times a week. It is a wonderful place and the dogs are socialized and handled, which is great for a young pup. I totally recommend this facility.
Our Blaze does the "happy butt wiggle" she reserves for family members when she comes to My Dog and the caring employees who treat her so well. Great to have this place close by.
My family's dog absolutely loves this place and it's workers. He's actually become a much nicer dog since spending time there. They take great care of him and there's never a need to worry about him when traveling. I've recommended this place to a few other people as well.
