Jeff Sizemore - Owner

The Dog House Doggie Daycare and Dog Boarding Facility is owned by Jeff Sizemore. Jeff has been running the business for 14 years and he lives on site. Prior to buying the business in the summer of 2000, Jeff owned a pet sitting service, but realized that for what he was charging clients to spend 1 hour with their dog, he could take care of a dog all day for the same price -- and the dogs wouldn’t have to be alone most of the day.

Jeff is a stickler for cleanliness and is proud that The Dog House is the cleanest kennel facility he’s ever seen. He is committed to providing the best possible doggy daycare and dog boarding experience for his four-legged guests and their owners. He feels that the best way to do that is have the dogs out of their kennels and active most of the day, playing, running socializing.

His top priority is the welfare of the dogs in his care. To that end, he hires only the best possible employees who provide loving attention, close supervision for all play, and deliver a personal and hands-on doggie day care and dog boarding experience.

His open door policy (anyone can stop by at any time) is unique in the industry, but as he says, “We’re an open book and never have anything to hide.”

If you would like to talk to Jeff or have any questions, please feel free to call 303-781-4577 and ask to speak to him, or you can email Jeff directly at jeff@thedoghouserules.com.

Katie - Staff - The Dog HouseRebecca - General Manager

At birth, Rebecca’s mom got her a German shepherd mix named Sadie for the baby to have a dog to grow up with. . . so she has literally been around dogs her whole life. Since that time, she’s experienced 8 or 9 family dogs of different breeds, including cattle dogs, so she has broad experience with many different temperaments, personalities, and behavioral problems, which has been great training for her current position. Her mom taught her how to train all her dogs, and she is training her current dog to be an emotional support animal.

Rebecca is committed to making The Dog House the most fun, welcoming place for customers and their dogs. She particularly enjoys working with shy dogs and helping them come out of their shell to join in the play and have fun. She finds that even with the shyest dogs, if she provides a kind, confident, consistent and reassuring presence, they will begin to feel safe and open up to interacting with others (people and dogs) and experiencing new things. Her dream for the future is to become a behavioral consultant for “last chance” dogs and be able to train, rehabilitate and reform problem dogs so that they can be re-housed.

As much as Rebecca loves the dogs who come to play at The Dog House, she also loves the customers and the opportunity to get to know them personally, since most of them are regulars. As a manager, she welcomes customer feedback because that helps her do her job to the best of her ability.

Rebecca really values that The Dog House is a family-owned business that promotes a family atmosphere. It’s great for the co-workers and because the workers are all very connected, Rebecca says “the dogs can tell that we’re a pack family, which makes them comfortable in this environment.”

Jeff Sizemore, the owner of The Dog House, is full of praise for his new General Manager. He says, “Rebecca is an amazing young woman. She is kind, compassionate, loving and deeply caring. She goes over and above in everything she does, and always puts the care and love of the dogs above everything else, which is exactly what we want as the priority here. I trust her completely with the dogs, and to provide the best possible customer service to our human customers as well.”


Katie - Staff - The Dog HouseKatelyn - Supervisor

Katelyn started working at the Dog House looking for just another job but what she found was a family. Over her years of working here she has developed amazing relationships with not only the dogs but her fellow coworkers as well. She feels that this is the only job she’s had where the people she works with are kind, compassionate, and friendly. Katelyn’s favorite part of working at the Dog House is that when she’s having a bad day or feeling sad, she can come to work and the dogs never fail at cheering her up. Of course, she has her favorite few dogs but she is constantly showing each and every one of them the upmost love and affection. Outside of work Katelyn enjoys taking her dog Harley on hikes and enjoying concerts. She is currently taking a psychology class and trying to decide what she would like to study in school. Katelyn has no plans to leave the Dog House and looks forward to each enriching experience that the dogs here can bring her way.


Serra - Staff - The Dog HouseSerra - Evening Supervisor

Serra has been with The Dog House for about a year and a half. She has always been around animals and can’t really see herself doing anything else. Before coming to the Dog House, she worked for horse trainers around Colorado as a caretaker and assistant trainer. Her job includes overseeing the kennel techs, administering meds, overseeing feeding, and ensuring that the dogs are kept safe, happy and healthy in both day care and boarding. Serra has four dogs. She brings Mary, her poodle terrier mix, to work with her but leaves her older dogs at home. Serra loves coming to work every day. She says that it is a wonderful and satisfying feeling to be able to give the dogs such good days while their parents are at work.
