Animal Care Attendant 

I have been working at Top Dog for 9 years. I have lived and grew up in the country of Saunemin. I have grown up on a farm and have worked with animals my whole life. I grew up with dogs and currently have 3 dogs, and knew this is what I wanted to do for a job. This job has given me many experiences learning about animal care, ho to groom, and social interaction skills. My job is to provide care to your animal, but my goal is to make your animal's stay a happy and fun time. I am happy to have this opportunity to care for your animal and I will be looking forward to seeing you here soon!

Hi, my name is Kaitlin and I just recently joined the Top Dog family. I grew up in Fairbury and I ’ve been a groomer for 3 1/2 years. Growing up I was always surrounded by animals and knew that I wanted my career to be with animals. I currently have an Australian Cattle Dog named Gunner and two cats. In high school I worked at a vets office and the animal control. I went to school at Parkland College and graduated with a Business Management degree in hopes to open my own business one day.

I am a veterinary student at Lake Land College and University of Illinois and I work at a companion animal clinic while school is in session. I got my start at Top Dog in 2016 and I still come back to work on breaks from school. Animals have always been my passion, and I plan to become a veterinarian for exotic animals. I hope to open a shelter within the next 2-3 years as well. I currently have two dogs, Sandy and Moose, and two chinchillas, Chili con Queso and Dexter, along with volunteer experience with just about every animal, so I can't wait to meet your fur baby!

Emma Trichel

I fell in love with animals ever since I was little. I did not care what the animal was, I just wanted to pet it or play with it. I now work here at Top Dog and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. The people here are great people and we will all take care of your animals like they were our own. I am wanting to get an education in a veterinary science field to learn more about the things I love.
