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

I’ve been a dog owner for over 16 years and a volunteer with CAARE Rescue Winnipeg for 4 years, fostering hundreds of dogs and cats.

My pack includes my two dogs, Bruno & Annabelle and my cat Oliver.

When I am not taking care of your dogs I am spending time with my daughter, Stevie. I am also 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 was the volunteer provincial coordinator for CAARE rescue Winnipeg for several years and have rescued + fostered many dogs, puppies and kittens over the years.

Hi there, my name is Adriana. I have had dogs my entire life and absolutely love all animals. I feel very lucky to be able to work with so many wonderful animals every day. I also have a couple part time jobs apart from working at Bark Lodge. Outside of work, I enjoy playing guitar, yoga, reading, cooking and running. It has been a wonderful year being employed at Bark Lodge. I have loved being able to meet and play with all of your wonderful doggos that come in to daycare. Me and the Bark Lodge team are so grateful for you guys!

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!)

Maureen is a retired nurse and always had dogs. Now that she is retired, she lives in Belize in the winter which means owning a dog is not possible, so she and her husband babysit dogs in the spring, summer and fall here in Winnipeg. They also work with the Humane Society in Belize walking dogs everyday.  She felt like she won the lottery when she got the opportunity to volunteer in the puppy room at Bark Lodge!

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. 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!
