Our Two Legged Team



David - Founder

David and FlightDavid has been involved with animals for most of his life. Beginning with summers at his Great Grandparent's farm in upstate New York, to his founding of The Lucky Dog Ranch, his first dog boarding and pet care facility, to Four Paws Pet Ranch, animals have always been a way of life. A true animal lover at heart, David grew up with dogs, cats, birds, and fish, among other critters. After 20 years in hi-tech David was looking for a way to get "back to nature", and made the decision to follow his passion and start a "Home away from home" for pets needing a place to stay while their owners are away. His focus now is to provide excellent care for animals staying at both facilities in addition to overseeing Countryside Rescue a non-profit animal rescue and adoption center located on the Four Paws property.


Ernesto - Facilities Manager

A familiar face for over7 years. Ernesto is key in keeping the kennel looking clean and tidy when you first enter the property.

When he is not busy with keeping our appearance up you will find him busy with the dogs out in the yards and fields.




Lia - Guest Manager
LiaWe are very excited to have Lia as part of our growing team. With over 6 years of hands-on experience including volunteer work at the Sonoma County Animal Shelter Lia's expertise is guaranteed to add to the positive experience our furry guests receive here at the ranch!




Jason - Yard Manager


Our own pack leader (just ask any of the dogs), Jason is responsible for the traing of our handlers and daily up-keep of the play yards and dorms. Along with the welfare of our guests.

He is also responsible for temperament testing each dog for their social skills.






Tori started out as a volunteer for our non-profit rescue Countryside Rescue. She was so loved by all the animals they insisted we hire her on as one of our ace handlers. Who are we to argue!



Alyssa Alyssa

Another one of our handlers who also helps meeting and greating
our furry friends as they arrive for their day of play.
