My name is Ali Bradshaw, and I am the proud owner of Downtown Dog. I have 22 years of experience working in the pet care industry, including working with dogs in kennel/day care settings, as a veterinary assistant, running a dog-walking and pet-sitting business for the past 10 years, and I have been training dogs for the past 7 years. My passion is working with dogs and their people. I love to see dogs thriving in their homes and relationships and feel our boarding, daycare, grooming, training, and walking will all help owners provide the best for their dogs. I currently have 5 dogs of my own and understand that every dog is different and has different needs. To that end, I make sure we keep our numbers small to provide individual attention and care. I believe that dogs deserve our best. Our services are all centered around the belief that dogs are social animals that require regular loving attention, care, positive training, and exercise to be happy and healthy.

Aaron’s love for animals has always been a huge part of his life.  He’s been working on a doggie daycare team since November 2012. His ability to read dogs quickly gained him a solid foot in the door, and he is excited to call the Downtown Dog his home!
