CEO & Founder
Hi, Doggy Parents! My name is Elizabeth. I grew up in Wellesley with three siblings and two dogs, Henry and Wally. I graduated from Bucknell University and created Doggy Dates because I love dogs, and I love entrepreneurship!

Chief Operating Officer
Dogs have always been such a big part of my life, and it feels like a dream to make them the focus of my career! In 2009, I graduated from NYU, where I spent most of my free time volunteering for a rescue in Manhattan. I love learning anything I can about dog behavior, nutrition, and training. I especially love hosting Doggy Dates dogs in my home with my husband and two daughters. It’s a blast! Thanks for sharing your pups with me!
Vice President of Operations
Hi, I’m Erin! After graduating with my Masters and CAGS and working in human services for four years, I made the decision to switch careers and focus on doggy services! I have always loved dogs, and, with two dogs of my own at home, I know how important furry family members are. I look forward to helping your pup have the best times possible!
Hey, I’m Max! One of my greatest loves is the outdoors, and two of my best friends walk on four legs. For that reason, I find myself extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to meet great new doggy friends with Doggy Dates! In my free time, I pursue my passion for creative writing.
