It takes a team and we have the best!

Get to know everyone here at Myownly Boarding Kennel. We are proud of our staff and how hard they work.


The driving force behind Myownly Boarding Kennel since opening in 1989 has been Cathi. Her ability to evaluate temperament and behavior has directed many pet owners to Myownly for 30 years. She has over 50 years of working with animals, as a licensed vet tech, groomer, breeder, trainer, and owner. Cathi has devoted her life to animals. She has breed and shown American and International Champion caliber dogs, as well as trained, groomed, and rescued all breeds of dogs. Cathi has accumulated a wealth of knowledge in her canine and pet career making Myownly one of the best boarding and grooming locations around. She is a walking talking resource for all things related to companion animals. If she can’t give you the answer she will find it for you.
