About Us!

The Owners: Jen Hansen & Jen Pierce
We have over thirty years combined animal care experience.   
After running a large-scale boarding and daycare facility, we
wanted to create a smaller and more structured environment for
dog daycare and pet sitting. Go Play! is the culmination of our
dream, and we are proud to offer your pets the very best care.
Besides working with dogs full time, we also have a successful
Jack Russell Terrier breeding program and travel all across the
continent to terrier shows with our champion dogs. We are very
proud of our dogs - they love to have fun in conformation, agility,
barn hunt, & lure coursing. A few of our dogs are even professional
models and have been featured in catalogs, print ads, and online!
We are both certified in canine CPR & First Aid by the Red Cross.

Jen H. spent six years serving as a reserve police officer and also
worked as an animal control officer. She has participated in animal
care education demonstrations, agility demos, and has owned many
different breeds of dogs (both purebred and mixed) throughout her
life. Jen H. teaches all levels of obedience and agility and is an AKC-
approved CGC & S.T.A.R. Evaluator.

Jen P. realized after pursuing a successful career in architecture and
interior design that working with animals was her true passion. She
enjoys hand stripping terriers and professionally grooming all breeds.
Jen P. teaches all levels of obedience, with a special interest in puppy
kindergarten. Jen P. is an AKC-approved CGC & S.T.A.R. Evaluator.


Our Staff!

Manager: Megan Belkner
    Megan has been a part of the Go Play! family since 2010. Previously, she attended cosmetology school
    and worked in the beauty industry. She soon realized she had a passion for working with animals and
    dog grooming enabled her to use her artistic talent and skills while also allowing her to fulfill her dream
    of providing excellent care to dogs! She is a wonderful professional groomer who prides herself in
    providing a high level of attention to each dog's individual needs. She specializes in dogs with 'first
    groom jitters' and existing grooming anxieties  and her patience, passion, and loving care creates a calm
    environment for all dogs. When she's not beautifying dogs in our grooming salon, she is caring for the
    daycare dogs. Megan has also attending canine training classes and has a true zest for learning something
    new every day. Megan's mottos about our facility is that the dogs in our care are never 'just dogs.' They
    become family and she loves and cares for them as if they are her own. Overall, Megan is a dedicated
    worker who strives to make each dog's experience at Go Play! a safe & enjoyable one. At home, Megan
    is the proud mom of a human daughter and a 14-year old Bichon mix named Ted.
