Meet Our Staff

Kozy Kennels has been open since 1987, providing you with a secure, trustworthy environment in which you can leave your pet while you are away. We have people with a variety of backgrounds caring for your pets–from breeders to veterinarians, from obedience trainers to professional groomers. Our experience stretches across pet kingdoms–we have people who are just as passionate about cleaning out your dog’s kennel as they are about mucking out a stall.

We Are Here to Care for Those You Hold Dear

With a staff that is experienced with pets, you can feel confident that your pet is in capable hands. Additionally, we provide an on-site animal hospital, staffed with fully certified medical veterinarians, just in case an emergency should arise. Book your pet’s stay by calling (508) 618-7697.

Our staff members include the following:



I bred and raised Papillon dogs for over 20 years. Owning and operating Kozy Kennels has been a fulfilling and rewarding experience. I enjoy working side by side with my staff. Without these wonderful and dedicated individuals, Kozy Kennels would not be the success it is today.

It is important to each and every one of us for your pet to have a good experience while in our care. I look forward to meeting you and your pet.



I have shown dogs in conformation and have done some agility training. I began working at the kennel when I was 15. I graduated from Suffolk University in the Spring of 2013.

I have always enjoyed working with the animals. It is important to me that all the pets have a clean and healthy environment during their stay.



I have been working with dogs since 1978, showing, training, and breeding Australian Shepherds. I have put multiple titles on many dogs in obedience, rally, agility, flyball, tracking and conformation.

After working with harness horses for many years and using my dog background as a jumping off point for a new career, I graduated from the Pedigree School of Grooming in 1987 and have worked here as head groomer at Kozy Kennels ever since…..recently celebrating my 20th year with Kozy Kennels.

Making cats and dogs look their personal best is a goal for myself and the grooming staff here at Kozy Kennels.

I have had a love for dogs since I was child. Since I got my own dog, in 1986, my passion and respect for them grew. Knowing I wanted to continue my life with dogs I graduated from Becker College with a degree in Animal Care. Since then I have showed, groomed and trained a variety of breeds. After years of working for other grooming shops I opened my own grooming salon, although my shop was a great success I made the difficult decision to close it to stay home with my two sons. Now my sons are older and I am truly thankful to be working with such a great group of people. I believe everyone here treats all the pets as they would their own.
