Hello, I am auntie Ash!

I am the General Manager here at Wooftopia. You can find me in daycare Monday-Thursday and running boarding from my home office on Friday’s. I also love to assist classes whenever I have the time. 

Working at Wooftopia has allowed me to expand my knowledge in many aspects. From learning breeds, studying history in dogs, observing many behaviours and understanding certain struggles in pups, it has allowed me to learn patience and a whole new love for dogs. At the moment I have completed courses such as: Dog CPR + First Aid , Dog Body Language Education, Treatment & Prevention of Dog Aggression Education,  a workshop for Reactive Dogs, Simple solutions for Common Dog Behaviour and Training Problems, Inside your dogs mind & am currently applying for many more! 

Being able to board from my personal home through Wooftopia has been so exciting. Growing up in a home filled with unconditional love from animals was truly a blessing & when I get to board dogs, I am always surrounded by that feeling.  I enjoy making others feel safe by taking in their dogs and treating them as my own. I adore getting to know each and every pup, while creating a strong bond with them filled with trust, that then leads to unconditional love. It’s a blast going on adventures all together & giving each pup a fun pawliday while their parents are away on their own. There is no better feeling then both the trust you earn from the owner & their pup having them stay with me. 

My goal is to continue to learn more about dogs, continue boarding and meeting new pups, and eventually board & train as well. 

What Our Wooftopians are Saying...

I know Desiree Klippenstein, owner of Wooftopia, from the work she does with local dog rescue, Manitoba Underdogs. I have come to know her as a tremendous resource. She is a lover of dogs, but more importantly she is experienced and skilled in dealing with all types of dogs from shy, nervous and withdrawn to overly bold, reactive, and kinda naughty. As soon as the doors of Wooftopia opened, I knew I wanted my two rescue dogs, Vito and Frankie, to attend Daycamp and training classes with Dez and her excellent staff. We are so pleased with with our experience, thus far. Wooftopia is welcoming, loving and supportive, focused on addressing our dog’s individual needs in a positive, spacious, proactive environment. In a relatively short period of time, we are seeing positive results. Our dogs love attending Day Camp at Wooftopia and we feel confident sending them there!! Congratulations to Desiree for creating a fantastic facility where all dogs are treated to the best possible care.

Wooftopia is our dog’s second home! Milo had attended obedience and trick classes, go to their daycamp regularly, and boarded with one of their staffs. He is very excited going there every time, and everyone we have met there are reliable, professional, and always go above and beyond. I would totally recommend any dog owners to check them out.

I’ve been to Wooftopia for daycare, training, and grooming. I’m always very happy with the service, and my dogs love it here. The staff are very knowledgeable, especially when it comes to behavioural training and helping dogs socialize. Best doggie daycare in Winnipeg!
