"Owners Ellen and Martha are great at what they do and their staff Dale and BJ (and others) are soooo good with the dogs, both big and small. Daycare, boarding and grooming, they do it all!"  Betsy G.

Doggie in the Window has earned a stellar reputation because of our small but dedicated staff.

What you need to know:

Martha and Ellen Hickey opened Doggie in the Window over 10 years ago.  

While they both share all duties, Ellen is a professional groomer, and runs the grooming spa.  Martha handles more of the business end of things. 


When you bring your dog in for daycare or baording, you will be greeted by Martha, Ellen, Dale or BJ.  From that moment on he or she will be supervised, played with, cuddled and taken care of by at least two staff members.  Our staff are dog owners, dog lovers, and trained in the ways of dogs.  They know who guards what toy, who likes to play together, where this one likes to be scratched, who needs a lap and who likes to nap in the corner.

If your dog is just coming for grooming Ellen or Courtney will greet you in the salon where they will stay with the salon staff for their visit.
