Glenn

Owner/Operator

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.

Handler, Media

Hi my name is Savannah Derby and I am a junior in high school. Animals have been a huge part of my life since before I can remember. Dogs specifically have always had a special place in my heart. Working at The Dog Nest has taught me so much about dogs that I never knew before. I have a really good understanding of how to handle and support dogs which I know I will use in my life forever! My dog Jessie is the first rescue dog I have had and knowing how she is has helped me understand other rescue dogs that come into The Nest. Growing this love for rescue dogs has encouraged me to do outreach work at dog shelters. I know dogs will always be a big part of my life!

Hi my name is Stella Dominski and I will be a senior in high school. I have always loved animals since I was a little girl. I have a german short haired pointer and her name is Esther. She is seriously my best friend! I love taking her to the dog park so she can meet new doggy friends and cuddling with her before bed. My dog always knows how to put a smile on my face. I know I will always have a love for dogs! I’m so excited to work at the Dog Nest and I can’t wait to spend time with doggies of all kinds.

Hi my name is Scarlett Derby and I am one of the dog handlers at The Dog Nest. I love coming to work and being greeting by a bunch of loving dogs. They all have such unique personalities and it is so cool to learn all of their different behaviors. I have always had a dog in my family but working at The Dog Nest has taught me so much more about dogs than I ever expected. I love all the bonds i have with each dog and I can’t wait to meet more as they come.

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!
