About us & how we got here

We are so glad you asked! First, let it be known that “we” refers to The Top Dog Resort, while “I” refers to the human behind the business, Angela Forhan (she/her)! I am a dog lover and coffee addict (I frequently walk dogs to various Starbucks). People often ask if I have a dog of my own and the answer is “no,” which I understand seems backwards. But, it allows me to better care for your fur babies, which is the best part of this business. I have a BBA in Economics that I earned from the University of Portland. After doing dog care for 7 years on the side, The Top Dog Resort officially came to fruition in 2022.

How much experience do you have as a dog care provider?

I’ve been in the professional dog care space for 7 years. In addition, I cared for my childhood dog throughout her life. All together, about 15 years combined between professional and casual. I am always continuing my education, most recently by enrolling in an advanced dog first aid class.

What do you specialize in?

I specialize in dogs with anxiety who might need a different kind of care than a traditional boarding facility can provide. I also specialize in helping the humans feel at ease while I care for your dog(s). I understand it is hard to leave your fur baby(ies), and I can assure you they will be cared for and loved like my own. We aim to be the best home away from home for a stress free stay for all.

What are the rates of your services?

Are you insured?

Yes! The Top Dog Resort LLC and employees are insured with all coverage needed to protect you, your dog(s) and our team.

What requirements are there?

Your dog must be up to date with all vaccinations and a proof of vaccination record will be required. We also require a meet and greet prior to any service.
