Lynn's favorite breeds are Poodles and any dog in a long haired scissor cut. She has a standard Poodle named Rou, who enjoys doing barn hunts and dog shows with her mom. In her spare time, Lynn enjoys horseback riding, traveling with her family and anything outdoors. She resides in the South Metro with her husband, 2 teenage daughters, a 3 year old son and of course their Poodle Rou!

  • Nick
    Kennel Manager

    Nick's start with Dakota Pet Hospital began in 1995 when he was still just a student in high school.  As he continued his education at the University of Minnesota, Nick continued to devote some of his time to our wonderful clients and their pets, which helped drive Nick into the pet-sitting business. 'Nick's Pet Recess', where pet owners who travel or have long work hours during the day can find some fantastic care for their pet(s).
