Chris’ Greatest Challenge and Inspiration


Q: What inspired you to become an entrepreneur? Describe both your greatest achievements and biggest challenges.

Chris: Both competition and service is core to my personality. As a young child, I began fundraising for various charities and organizations, always striving to reach more people and raise more funds than anyone else. I aspired to become a veterinarian when I was six years old, reading all I could about animals and caring for the stray, hungry or hurt animals in our neighborhood. I wanted to show them the same love they gave me.

As a business owner I have overcome many physical challenges to the demanding work of caring for living beings. In 2005 I was involved in a near-fatal motorcycle accident which left me with a broken back and partially paralyzed for two years. The accident put my dreams for expanding my business on hold while I completed physical therapy and recovered my ability to walk and then run. The road to recovery was long but thanks to my loyal customers, my business is thriving and I am once again ready to expand.

Today, I work hard to maintain my physical, psychological, and spiritual health to ensure the safety and well-being for each dog in my care. This balance represents both my greatest achievement and biggest challenge.
