We love our furry friends!




My name is Glenn Derby, I have loved dogs since I was a kid. My favorite book was Where the Red Fern Grows! That book helped me form a bond with dogs that I have had for over 50 years. I love training, handling, talking about, and just being in the dog world. My goal is to have a dog facility that everyone loves to come see and be a part of!! I look forward to meeting all the new dogs and the ones we’ve had since day 1.



Operations Officer

Hi I’m Carol and I’m the operations officer here at The Dog Nest! My favorite part of the job is hanging out with my office dogs all day, everyday and occasionally invading Bizzy’s suite to give her some love! I have two dogs of my own at home, a golden doodle named Buddy and a maltipoo named Duke. I’ve been running operations here since November 2021 and couldn’t imagine a better place to work!

Hi my name is Ally Merlet and I am currently a junior in high school. I have always loved dogs and I have three dogs of my own, so I thought being a dog handler would be the perfect job. I started at the dog nest a couple of months ago. It has been so much fun and I love it. My favorite part of work is the wide variety of dogs that come in. I have learned so much about different dog breeds and my love for dogs has grown even stronger since working here. The Dog Nest is a great place to work and I am so thankful for everything I have learned and will continue to learn from this job.

Hi I’m Tatum Smith and I’m a senior at Arrowhead High School! I will be attending the University of Minnesota next year and majoring in psychology. But between you and me, I like dogs much better than people. I have a nine year old golden doodle at home and he is the light of my life. Dogs have gotten me through so much and just their presence always puts a smile on my face, so any way that I can help out and be around dogs is a win for me! I am newer to The Dog Nest, but I already love it here so much! Your dogs are in the best hands possible!

My favourite part about my job is meeting all of the dogs and learning their unique personalities. As much as I love being a handler and working with the dogs in playgroup, my main job at The Dog Nest is cleaning, organizing, and bringing everyone’s dogs up to the front to their owners.
