Our Team

Hi! I’m Raeann, CO owner at Bark Lodge. 

I’ve been a dog owner for over 13 years and a volunteer with CAARE Rescue Winnipeg for 4 years, fostering hundreds of dogs and cats.

My pack is currently up to four dogs, Bruno, Annabelle, Gucci & Misty, as well as our cats, Oliver & Simon. 

I am an avid traveller, gardener, and enjoy searching flea markets for treasures in my spare time. 

Amanda and I met through our many hours volunteering together with CAARE, coordinating foster homes, vet appointments and rescue missions. We developed an instant friendship and knew we could run a business together. Our common love for dogs and entrepreneurship minds is what got us here!

Hi! I’m Amanda, one of the owners of Bark Lodge. My passion for animals started at a very young age and has followed me through to adulthood. Outside of Bark Lodge I am a mother to 4 human boys and a wife. We live in the country on 70 acres. We have 2 dogs; Mounty a Great Pyrenees and Squallie a chihuahua. I also have 2 cats, Tuna and Katniss, 4 chickens, 6 guinea fowl, a guinea pig AND 3 fish! I am the volunteer provincial coordinator for CAARE rescue Winnipeg and have rescued + fostered many dogs, puppies and kittens over the years. 

Hello! I’m Liz, a proud dog mom of three adorable pups; Zara is a three-legged terrier mix, Moc is a shepherd mix and Peanut is a lab mix. When I’m not spending time with all the doggies at Bark Lodge or with my own dogs, I’m at the University of Manitoba studying to become a registered nurse. Throughout the years, I have always felt the desire to work with animals- from working at a pet store to becoming a veterinary assistant, and now being apart of the Bark Lodge team! It brings me so much joy to have the opportunity to work with such a wonderful group of humans and dogs

Hello, I’m Rachel and my whole life has been involved in some way with people and  animals.  I have been a doggy foster parent for CAARE in the past and am currently the proud mom of a handsome cat named boots and god mom to the cutest pug terrier named Gus. My partner and I live in transcona and we have five kids that keep us busy.  I’ve been looking into going back to school to get my dog grooming certification and seeing about specializing in beautifying your amazing pups! You can find me bunking overnight with your dogs and the occasional daycare shift!  I am so looking forward to meeting all the amazing dogs that call bark lodge their home away from home!

Hi, I’m Tyarra 

Dogs and animals in general have been apart of my life for as long as I can remember. I am currently a proud dog mom to an adorable little pomchi, Koby. 

When I’m not with your pup at Bark Lodge or at home with mine, I am studying at RRC to become a registered nurse. I absolutely love to travel and try new things. Seeing the world is definitely on my bucket list. One of my greatest achievements in life is being apart of a competitive dance team. 

I am so happy to be given this opportunity to work with such an amazing group of people and dogs! 

Hello I am Zarah, I have just moved back to Winnipeg after four years of studying and playing soccer in America. I’m a dog mom of two Vizsla’s, Milo and Kalea. As well as being an animal lover, I am a huge traveller and shark enthusiast. When I am not at Bark Lodge you can catch a reading a good book or enjoying time with my pups. After caring for dogs and working at a pet store I feel honoured to be taking care of the dogs that come to Bark Lodge and making them feel at home. It’s always great coming into work with smiling faces and wagging tails.

Hi I'm Ashley! I teach Grade 3/4 at an elementary school here in the city. I have two dogs of my own. Nova is a 3.5 year old English Labrador and Hemi is a 4.5 year old rescue mutt! In my spare time I love to hang out with my dogs, read and go to the gym! In summer you can always find my dogs and I outside at a beach (dog friendly of course!) When I was younger I worked at pet stores and volunteered at the Humane Society. When the opportunity at Bark Lodge arrived I jumped at the chance to get back into volunteering and spending time with the dogs. I love coming in to see all the new puppy faces (and it temporarily satisfies my need for a new dog!)
