Dude - Office Manager and Quality Control Specialist

Erin - Founder
Erin - Founder

Erin founded Le Pooch in 2010. Previously having worked in retail, she took a risk pursuing a business for which she had a passion. By 2012, Le Pooch had grown to include a larger service area and multiple dog walkers. At this time, Erin stepped back as a pet care provider to focus on managing the growing company. After a few years of management transition, Le Pooch became a partnership LLC with Amy, Mallory, and Erin. Although Erin still holds a roll within the company, she is no longer involved in the day-to-day of Le Pooch.
