About Demi and Me
My little but mighty 5 lb Yorkshire Terrier, Demi (2003-2018), is the namesake and the inspiration for Demi's Dog House (DDH). After I completed graduate school and spent more than a decade working in Human Resources Management for the oil and gas industry, I decided to pursue my true passion for animals and ventured into the dog daycare/boarding/grooming industry. DDH became a reality in Jan '09 and in January 2019 we were happy to be celebrate our 10 year anniversary!
After Demi's was established, I was lucky enough to be adopted by three more pups over the years, Pumkin, Quila and then Queso. While Demi stayed busy running the front desk and greeting two and four legged clients at the door, Pumkin works hard as Head Barker, Quila as Tug-of-War Trainer and Queso as Fetch Master. All of my fur babies take their jobs pretty seriously.
In addition to being Houston's first Certified Professional Animal Care Operator through PACCC, I am an active member of the International Boarding and Pet Services Association, IBPSA, Houston's first Fear Free Certified Professional, Boarding & Daycare, and Fear Free Certified Groomer. I actively pursue continued education and training in order to stay current on pet industry's standards and best practices and bring that education and training to the staff members of DDH.
I love animals and am grateful for each day I get to spend with them at Demi's. I'm truly honored to take care of your pups!
