Dallas Sapla

Owner, Manager
Pet Sitter & Dog Walker

Dallas has always held a special place in his heart for pets. He grew up with many dogs, cats and even some birds too! Originally from Hawaii, Dallas moved inland to pursue a college degree. While in college he rescued his two brother cats and made sure they had a comfortable home. A year later, while still in college, he rescued his dog, Kalea, as well!

Previously, he was involved with a pet sitting opportunity in Boulder and would commute from Greeley to Boulder every day just to care for his beloved clients while still attending college full time. He was truly committed. It was there that he fell in love with the business of pet care, and his entrepreneurial dream of caring for pets every day heightened. Dallas graduated from UNC with a Bachelors in Sports Exercise Science and a minor in Nutrition. In late 2021, he found himself working on a goal to obtain this particular pet sitting/dog walking business, Paws At Home. By March 2022, the business was officially in his hands and he was finally able to call it his very own pride and joy.

Over the last few years, Dallas has created his own family of pets with his significant other, Journey, their three dogs, Lilo, Kalea, and Indie, and their 2 cats, Hoku and Smokey. Dallas is purely a hard worker, he has a full-time job in addition to managing Paws At Home which combined preoccupy much of his time. He devotes most of his free time to his pet family by taking them hiking, to the dog park, on car rides, and simply cuddling them on the couch.

Dallas thoroughly understands and has experienced every struggle and every blessing pets present to their parents. He can directly relate to how stressful it can be to leave your pets behind at home, which is why he has cultivated a sincere connection and genuine appreciation to Paws At Home, its staff, its clients, and the pet industry as a whole.

 

Journey

Manager
Pet Sitter & Dog Walker

Journey grew up in a small town in South Dakota and moved to Colorado to obtain her Bachelor’s in Business Economics at UNC. She grew up around many types of animals including horses, fish, dogs, cats, bunnies, and all kinds of farm animals! Before moving to Colorado, Journey rescued her cairn terrier, Indie, from a puppy mill at the age of 2.  It took a lot of perseverance on Journey’s part to break Indie out of her shell and show her what a dog’s life is supposed to be. Because of Indie, Journey has gained years of experience with anxiety in animals and understands the patience and compassion that is required in order to care for these types of pets. Journey has always felt a deep connection to all animals and couldn’t be happier to care for your dearest pets.

In her free time, she enjoys hiking, cooking, and spending time with her pet family.
