She followed her passion to Michigan State University where she got her bachelor's degree in Animal Science with a focus on Animal Behavior. Heather has over 8 years of experience professionally training and caring for horses, but she has always been a dog lover as well. Since college Heather has relocated to Colorful Colorado in search of endless sunshine and mountains.

Camilla moved to Denver about a year ago, with her boyfriend and fur baby Luna. They recently adopted their first cat and named her Nova.

Noelle moved to Colorado to attend Metropolitan State University to pursue a degree in environmental restoration after spending most of her life in Alaska. She grew up around teams of huskies as well as many family dogs, from a Shitzu/Toy Poodle to Australian Shepherds and even a Malamute. Currently, Noelle and her boyfriend have two fur babies, one a cat named Billy and the other, a wiggly 5-month-old puppy, named Rupert! Aside from school and work, Noelle currently models and is an actor with Wilhelmina Denver. She loves running, reading, and spending time in the beautiful mountains of Colorado! Noelle is so very excited to start walking with Poop in a Group and giving each of your respective four-legged children the exercise and love they need while you’re away!
Janell is originally from Kearney, NE, and has relocated to the front range about six years ago, but currently resides in Denver. She loves traveling and exploring new places. Most of her previous jobs have revolved around the hospitality industry. And yes, shes love the hospitality industry, she even sees herself doing it for many years. From Janell's time living in Alaska to a winter spent in Florida, or whether in jeans and t-shirt talking about beer, or a freshly pressed white button up suggesting the duck confit, she is comfortable in it all. She loves yoga, vintage fashion, and studying wine (and no, not just drinking it). While her professional experience working with animals is limited, her love for them is not. Janell has been lucky enough to own and love-on several irreplaceable four-legged-friends, from two beagles, a shiba inu, to a pitbull/akita mix.
Charlotte grew up in the beautiful mountains of Evergreen. After high school, her scenery changed by attending school in Brooklyn, New York to study illustration at the Pratt Institute. There, she worked as a server and nanny while, making sure to stare at and pet all willing New Yorker pups. After six years Charlotte moved to Paris, France to be an au pair. While she may have managed to learn how to ask owners if she could pet their dogs, that was about the extent of her French speaking. So, she decided to return to Denver in order to be closer to Dewey and Hops, a golden and a rescue corgi mix, and, the rest of her family. She is thrilled to be a part of "Merde" In A Group and promises not to be the dog park creep, though this bio suggests otherwise.
Rachel, aka "Rocky", has been working a Chef and Pastry Chef around the country for the past 20 years. Rocky and her husband decided to move and buy a home in Denver one year ago. Growing up she always had "family" dogs, however REALLY they were Rocky's dogs. During high school her mother brought home two rescues. Rocky continued the tradition by volunteering at local shelters along with rescuing her most recent 3 fur babies. Her eldest pup Cali, along with Henry the cat, have been with Rocky since they were babies. She adopted Snowy, only a couple years ago. Her animals are her children. They keep her grounded. It’s a running joke with her husband that she loves her little pack more than him (which is only partially true). Years in kitchens have taught Rocky how to handle ever-changing environments, the importance of attention to detail, the ability to multi-task, and most of all patience. These skills will help Rocky in her position as a dog walker with Poop In A Group; as each of these skills come in handy when walking her own two VERY energetic pups.
