She enjoys reading, coffee, and cuddling with her own dog.  Morgan is quickly learning how to care for our special needs dogs and really enjoys paying attention to their unique requirements.


This is Morgan's first job and she finds it fulfilling and natural to care for cats and dogs who are in her care.  We  find her spending extra time with the new houseguests: working extra hard to make them comfortable.  Morgan is a natural at bathing and brush-outs, and loves to be part of sending our spa dogs home clean and happy.  She is a welcome addition to Team Myownly!

Ashley has completed an AA in business and plans to complete her BA in equine science with the intention of working as a horse trainer.

Kyndra helps out at Myownly Dog Kennel while attending WSU

Kyndra is now attending nursing program in Spokane, CONGRATULATIONS!!  She has been with us since high school and we love having her back during her school holidays. When home she lives with Bear, a smooth Chow, Milo, a chihuahua mix, Reene, an Exotic Shorthair, related to our office cat, Jangles, and her Siamese, Mischu! Kyndra's favorite spot seems to be in the play yard managing the play groups of boarding dogs. Her second favorite area is the pet grooming area, bathing our boarding dogs. We hope we get her as our nurse if we ever find ourselves in need!  Kyndra came to work when her mother, Marta, was our office manager.
