About the Owners

Jessica Schwickrath


“It was only after graduating college with a degree in Elementary Education that I realized I was meant to spend my days with dogs. While substitute teaching, I also had a part time job working at The Center For Animal Health and Welfare, formally the Northampton County SPCA in Eason, PA. At one point in my life, my husband and I took care of eight dogs all living under one roof, for a period of four years. I knew my love for dogs was strong at that time, but working at the SPCA only made my love grow stronger. I soon became the Canine Manager. I worked at SPCA for almost two years, learning more than I could have ever hoped for about dog behavior and their overall wellbeing. I loved every minute of my very stressful, yet very rewarding position, and only gave it up to follow my dream of starting my own dog day care. I look forward to loving up and playing with dogs every day for the rest of my extremely blessed life.”

ABCDT | Owner/Operator/Dog Trainer 

“After receiving my Bachelor’s Degree from Rutgers University, my wife and I began to fulfill our dream of owning our own dog day care. We have always loved being around dogs. I actually grew up in a dog house! While pursuing my Master’s Degree, we began renovating our dog day care facility. Renovations were painful, but they are coming along great. I am a certified dog trainer through Animal Behavior College. I am also a board member of the Center for Animal Health & Welfare. I am the head trainer at various shelters in PA and NJ as well. I look forward to meeting you and your dog(s).”
