Pinkie's Play Place is family owned and operated by mother and daughter, Brenda and Heather. You'll often see Heather's children, Abigail and Isabelle, in the mornings greeting people before they head off to school at St. Louis! Our family is very invested in the Clarksville community and look forward to many, many years caring for our furry friends!
We opened our doors January of 2017 and based our business model on the ideals that boarding and daycare can encompass all the comforts and familiar surroundings of home, while also providing the safe, clean environment we all expect of a boarding and daycare facility. We strive to make every visit fun, engaging and warm not only for our furry friends but our pet parents as well!
Meet the Staff
Brenda maintains all the behind the scenes aspects of the business and helps runs the day to day operations. She says she can't wait to retire from her Monday through Friday desk job and be a pacl leader! Who wouldn't want to spend retirement playing with puppies!
Heather brings with her 15 years of experience in the pet care industry, working primarily as a groomer but also in boarding/daycare facilities, veterinary offices and also owned a cage free grooming facility for 7 years. She runs the day to day operations, and is also our fabulous groomer.
Alexis is a former veterinary technician, and has proven herself to be a vital asset to our young company! She excels at reading dog behavior, interacting with the dogs individually and understanding what type of play style each dog brings to the party! We feel so lucky to have found someone so experienced in pet care and wonderful with our furry friends. Alexis is our lead playroom supervisor.
Laurie may be familiar to our clients who visited this facility when it was Still Point Spa. She was employed with them until after they consolidated locations. Once Pinkie's moved in she just loved the building and the atmosphere, once we added the dogs and puppies aspect she couldn't resist coming back! We absolutely love Laurie! She is very kind and sweet. If you have a teeny pup (cockapoos especially!) chances are she will be snuggling them all day! Laurie is our morning receptionist.
Morgan is with us for the summer while on break from college. She is working towards a degree within the animal industry. She has a calm vibe and natural handling techniques with the dogs that they respond to very well. Morgan is one of out awesome pack leaders.
Danny is our closing pack leader. He spends his evenings supervising play groups, handing out belly rubs and snuggling with the fur babies until it's time for all our slumber party guests to eat dinner and get ready for bed.
