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!
Chief Marketing Officer
Hi, everyone. I help my sister, Elizabeth, with all Doggy Dates marketing material! Have you seen our doggy dates cars… or this website…? That’s me!
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.
Human Resources Manager
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 follow my passion: dogs. I feel grateful each and every day to wake up and LOVE going to work! Thank you for sharing your furry family members with me!

Tony here. I’ve worked as an engineer in Windsor, CT for the past 30+ years, but in my free time I work as a consultant/builder for Doggy Dates. For the past five years I have enjoyed tweaking and perfecting the custom design inside the Doggy Dates vehicles to ensure your dogs have a safe and comfortable ride to and from playgroup. I also love to spend time with my three children, four grandchildren and my Labrador, Molly.

Hello, fellow canine lovers! My name is David, and I just might have been a dog in my previous life. Growing up, my second oldest brother was a mutt, Spanner, who shaped me into the canine caretaker you see today.
