About Our Owner, Julia

Growing up, Julia spent long days at the baseball field watching her dad coach her older brothers. She sported the team logos and learned all the cheers. Although not on the team itself, her time at the field allowed her to develop an appreciation and love for the sport. Julia has been an animal lover since the day she was born. Surrounded by dogs her whole life, you never found her at the fields without one. In 2015, she lost her horse after her horse gave birth to a beautiful baby that Julia named Fenway, which connected her love for animals with her love for baseball.

Her passion for animals and their care developed throughout her high school and college years. Life threw a curveball her way and she decided to combine her two loves to open DogTowne. DogTowne is a place where all dogs can be an all-star. Her goal is to develop a team that provides a safe and comforting environment for all dogs to enjoy playing ball.

WHY CHOOSE DOGTOWNE

HOME CARE ACCOMODATIONS

If your ballplayer is a little too old to hang out with other teammates all day or likes to stay in the comfort of their home, one of our field coaches can set aside a time to come to them! We are happy to send your pup their own care coach who can work with you to design a playbook that fits their needs.

HEALTHCARE CERTIFIED

All our coaches here at DogTowne are trained in First Aid and CPR. They received their certifications from K9 Educators.

SOCIALIZATION BENEFITS

All our all-star dogs are required to go through a try-out before joining DogTowne. This leaves for safe and comfortable socializing among all of our teammates. Socializing your dog is important as it can help with several behavior tendencies, such as separation anxiety.

Geralyn Randall

Field Coach

Geralyn Randall joined the DogTowne team in 2023. She graduated from Bristol County Agricultural High School where she majored in Animal Science. Her time at the agricultural high school broadened her view of animal industries and encouraged her to pursue a career in the animal care. She had the opportunity to work with a wide range of animal species and study a variety of topics that would aid her in giving proper care.

From a young age, Geralyn has been surrounded by an abundance of animals. She has been riding and working around horses since 2015 and has owned and taken care of several at her home in Mattapoisett. She has been employed in a variety of fields within animal care. Geralyn was a groom at Newport Polo, assisted in the care of horses at a large training facility and most recently was employed as a canine and feline grooming assistant.

All her previous experiences have helped guide her to be confident, caring, and compassionate while working with any animals she may encounter. She is pictured with her Black Labrador Retriever, Denali. The two of them cannot wait to meet their new teammates and friends at DogTowne.

POPULAR QUESTIONS

Why is a Try Out necessary?

Not every pet is cut out for daycare in this setting. There are numerous factors that contribute to this. Some dogs may play well with others when you are present. Some dogs may not interact well with the pack. This doesn’t mean there is anything wrong with your pet, but a try out allows our coaching staff to determine if they are the right fit for our team. Our goal is to adapt a safe friendly environment for all dogs to play.

For a try out, we ask you to drop off your dog for a couple hours. One of our coaches will then slowly introduce your dog to our team. We start the try out in a small room where the dog can observe our play areas. Once we find the dog is ready, we will introduce your dog to one of seasoned professional dogs. They will interact and play, setting a calming tone before we then slowly integrate your dog to our larger play group. Through observation and our team’s knowledge, we will then determine if you pet is a good fit to join our team.

There is no charge for a try out.

Can I bring my dog toys?

We ask that you leave your dog’s favorite toys at home for daycare. If there is something, you would prefer they not be without for night care you are welcome to bring that for their overnight stays.

Are all vaccines required?

We require all dogs to be up to date on their rabies, distemper and Bordetella vaccines.

Do the dogs ever get a break or are they in team play all day?

All dogs get a couple hours of break time during their daycare stay with us. While some of our all-stars can run all day, we have others that burn out a little earlier. Our coaches are trained to watch for cues from your pet that let us know when they’ve had enough. If needed, we can separate the pets from the team to give them their break.
