Meet the team
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!

Hi, everyone. I help my sister, Elizabeth, with all marketing material! Have you seen our doggy dates cars… or this website…? That’s me!
Chief Operating Officer
Hi! My name is Marissa. 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! I graduated from NYU in 2009 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 fiancé–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 4 years, I made the decision to change careers and focus on doggy services! I have always loved dogs and, with my two dogs at home, I know how important our furry family members can be. I look forward to helping your pup have the best playdate possible!
Hey, I’m Max! One of my greatest loves is the outdoors and two of my best friends walk on four legs so I find myself extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to meet great new doggy friends while I pursue my passion for creative writing in my free time.
Hi, I’m Corey! I have never met a dog I didn’t love. After graduating with a degree in Counseling Psychology, I decided to change career paths and seek out my passion: dogs.

Hi, my name is Tony. I have worked as an engineering technician in Windsor, CT for the past 30+ years, but in my free time I work as a consultant/builder for Doggy Dates.

Hello, fellow canine lovers! My name is David, and I might just have been a dog in a previous life.. Throughout my tenure as a passionate lover of all dogs, I’ve been known as “Uncle Dave” to my furry four-legged friends. My second oldest brother growing up was a mutt named Spanner who laid the foundation and shaped me into the canine caretaker you see today. He would follow me everywhere, even into school. I returned the favor by keeping his dog tags on my keys so he still gets to follow everywhere I go. Your pups are in good hands with affection, attention and even a treat every now and then!
