Our Story

Our inspiration for Canyon Canines came from our adopted kids, Moto, Milly and Monster; three abandoned puppy hearts who needed a home just when we happened to have some extra space. Like tons of pet parents out there, we just want the best care for them when it comes down to a day or night away and they can't come with us. After trying so many daycare and boarding facilities in the places we've lived, we've picked and pulled the things we've liked from each one and left behind the things we don't, in order to create the best customer and dog experience for the very best home away from home! Our background comes from grooming school, continuing education in the pet industry, business management, and the one and only, U.S. Army. 


We can't wait to welcome you and your dog to our little family!

The Mascot 

I'm the senior mascot who was given a second chance at life when I was rescued from an abandoned backyard in San Jacinto in 2013. I really love belly rubs, golf cart rides, and going to my Nosework class with my dad.


Owner, Veteran, Best Dog Dad Ever

I am an Army veteran with a passion for fitness, country music, and working with people and dogs. I enjoy being a nosework handler with my sidekick, Moto. My three rescue kids keep me going strong!



The Fun Police

I only have three legs but I'm the boss and patrol everyone in daycare. If anyone is too rowdy or has more fun than me, I'll bark. I love agility and singing with sirens that pass by outside. I have my Advanced Trick Dog title and 8 agility titles, including a Championship!


Owner, Groomer, Pet First Aid Instructor, Trick & Obedience Trainer


 I was born a dog lover and can't imagine my life without them! From a young age I knew my career would be with dogs. Today, I am a groomer, champion dog trainer, Pet Tech Instructor, and dog mom to the three best rescue dogs in the world. Our hobbies include long golf cart rides, frisbee and ball chasing, and agility.

The Smartypants Athlete


I make friends with everyone and I know more tricks than a magician. I am a Champion Trick Dog and have 17 agility titles plus a Championship to my official name, CMOB's Monster Under the Bed. 




These are my dogs, Maggie my golden retriever/lab mix and Zoey my senior golden retriever! Maggie and I love to take hikes and we work on her listening skills with distractions while on the trails. Zoey says she is old and doesn’t want to work for her treats anymore. She likes to nap and be close to her people and little sister! Every day I am so excited to come in to work with all sorts of amazing dogs and dog lovers!
