Candace // Owner & Founder
Hello! My name is Candace and I’m a dogaholic…
but, I’m not just a dogaholic, rather, a dog of all trades! I’m a pet parent expert, CEO of Dogaholics, Pet Business Consultant with Pet Boss Nation, Conference Speaker, Pets+ Magazine Columnist, Lakeview Chamber of Commerce Board Member, Southport Neighbors Board Member but most importantly... a professional dog belly rub scratcher.
Having gone to over 9 schools by the 9th grade and moving over 30 times in my life, pets were the only constant in a world of chaos and change. True friends. True companions.
Knowing I couldn’t possibly be the only one who loved pets and treated them as family members, I set out to build a local community who cares deeply about the quality of life for their pets. What resulted was beyond my wildest dreams. Dogaholics has become the center of an engaging and loyal following of committed people with a passion for helping all of us addicted to dogs go from dogaholic to being a great pet parent!
Giving back to my local community is a deep passion of mine. Dogaholics has given me the opportunity to truly give back in meaningful ways, including raising over $200,000 for shelter dogs, and finding many more their forever homes. Having customers like you, become part of our family, and help us give back has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.
