Robin was first a client, and now a partner here at WOOF!
Robin got to know Anita when her miniature poodle Beau injured his leg. They experienced first hand how cold laser and acupressure massage can support recovery. When Robin had the opportunity to work with Anita and Ron along with all the other WOOF! pack members she jumped at the chance.
Robin’s primary responsibilities are to help keep the retail store operations running smoothly. Additionally, she supports big and little dog “Fit ‘n Fun"!
Robin recently moved to Ivins, UT after a successful 28-year career as a Special Education Administrator. Outside of WOOF! Robin is dog mom to Annie and Beau, a brother and sister pair of miniature poodles. They are training to fulfill their dreams of becoming agility poodles! Robin enjoys, hiking in the red rocks, biking, and loves living in Southern Utah!
Alli started working with dogs a little over 5 years ago. In high school, she did a lot of volunteer work and started off volunteering at a dog boarding facility. Not long after, she landed a job at the facility and began to acquire so many new skills. She handled all types of different breeds, from the huge Rottweilers to the itty bitty Yorkies. Alli did however, spend most of her time with the larger dogs! She learned about dog behavior, different training styles, proper play between dogs and so much more.
The learning didn’t stop there, later on Alli got her very own German Shepherd mix puppy in 2018. She was always a fearful and anxious dog so she wasn’t a fan of strangers or dogs she didn’t know. She definitely put Alli's skills to the test. It wasn’t easy but, eventually Alli learned to manage her puppy's quirks so she can ignore strangers/dogs and be a happy girl in public.
Alli now has five dogs (including her GSD!) who she competes with regularly in all kinds of different dog sports! Flyball, Dock Diving and Disc Dog, to name a few. Alli also enjoys dabbling in Creative Grooming with her Standard Poodle who you might see at WOOF! every so often!
When not with her dogs, Alli loves going camping, hiking and taking photos.
Director of Training
Jen started working with dogs over 10 years ago. After 20 years of managing real estate and raising her daughter, she was ready to fulfill her real passion.
She started working as a dog handler at a large boarding facility. Her duties included handling 20-50 dogs in the play area and conducting one-on-one play for dogs that were not a good fit for the large group play. Other responsibilities included bathing and keeping dogs hydrated and fed.
Jen also helped the vet techs with giving medication and assisting the veterinarian when needed. She was quickly promoted to Assistant General Manager and managed a staff of 10-15 employees. She is certified in Pet CPR and First Aid. Jen also volunteered with German Shepards of Orange County and Irvine Animal Shelter for many years.
Jen has currently been working as a trainer at WOOF! for nearly two years. She was recently promoted to Director of Training and is excited to re-structure and enhance the training experience of the WOOF! Training Academy. Jen enjoys identifying problem behaviors, teaching owners methods to train their dog, developing a plan of action for the dog and owner, and creating a welcoming and bonding environment.
When not working, Jen enjoys hiking, biking with her husband and painting.
Lydia has spent her whole life around dogs, so discovering and receiving the opportunity to turn that passion into a job was a dream come true.
"Living in Ivins, I’ve always seen WOOF! while driving through Santa Clara, little did I know that my dream job was right down the street from where I lived! I love learning about how dogs act, think, and socialize. The extra cuddles are a huge bonus as well!"
When not hanging out with dogs, you can most likely catch Lydia performing with So. U Comedy Theater, listening to music, or making art.
Oakley has always had a love for washing and taking care of dogs. During her junior year of high school she got the opportunity to do a dog grooming internship. From this she found a love for grooming dogs. She has learned the tools and tricks to help her in the future, and continues to improve her skills.
Oakley graduated at Pine View High School in 2023, then immediately started working as a full time groom tech here at WOOF! She also enjoys hanging out with friends and family.
