Sherry Moore

OWNER / MANAGER

Looking to provide a more enjoyable life and a “larger world” for her active dog, Sherry began her relationship with TMD back in 2002 by training her (then) dog Ruger and never looked back.

When the time came to add a dog to their household again, Sherry and her husband didn’t hesitate to train with TMD again in 2015 with their black lab Otto.

At that time, Sherry was working as a Veterinary Asst./Training Manager at a local animal hospital while attending Clarke University to obtain a Master of Business Administration.

Her goal was to find a career that blended her love for animals and passion to help make a business prosper. While talking with Robin, a mutual desire for filling this type of position arose and when offered a position of General Manager, Sherry knew it was a position she couldn’t pass up! After five years as General Manager, Sherry was given the opportunity to purchase That’s My Dog! and became the owner as of January, 2022. She is honored to be the owner of this amazing company and lead this high quality team. She is excited about all the great things in store for TMD as it continues to grow!

Outside of being the Owner/Manager of TMD, you will find Sherry enjoying the great outdoors with her husband, Robert, and their dog, Otto, by camping, hiking, canoeing and so much more!

Education:
Bachelor of Science Degree, UW-Stevens Point, 2001
Master of Business Administration, Clarke University, 2016

Kellie Drury

Office Manager

Kellie has been around dogs for most of her life, from having family dogs as a child to getting her first one while in college. She has worked in banking or accounting since graduating high school, but has always felt drawn to working with animals. She left the business world in 2019 to pursue her passion for animals and started working at a veterinary clinic. Now she is able to have the best of both worlds (animals and business), working at TMD as our Office Manager.

Kellie joined our team in August 2022 and comes with a business mindset and a love for animals, making her a great addition to the team! Besides her hard work at TMD, Kellie also still helps out at a local vet clinic. When she’s not at TMD, Kellie loves spending time with her husband and two boys, her 3 boston terriers, taking photos and going on adventures around the tri-state area.

Taylor Emrath

Dog Trainer

Taylor first began working at That’s My Dog in 2016 as a kennel hand while attending UW – Platteville with the intention of becoming a veterinarian. After seeing the amount of difference formal training could make for a dog and their owner, she knew she wanted her career path to change.

After graduating with a degree in Animal Science she began her journey as a dog trainer. She added her first dog to her life in 2018, a black lab named Opal. Taylor continues to advance her knowledge of dog training by studying with a variety of trainers and attending workshops. When she’s not playing with dogs she enjoys traveling back to her hometown to spend time with her family.

Robin MacFarlane

Founder

Back in 1994, Robin made the decision to help create change in the lives of dogs and their owners. While working full time as a vet tech, she began teaching classes and instructing dog owners as a part time pursuit. After a life altering event in the fall of 1997, she decided that training was her true passion and went full time into the profession. She launched That’s My Dog! in May of 1998.

Through the years, Robin’s work has led her to travel across North America and abroad teaching pet professionals, K9 handlers, and private pet owners.

Her expertise in electronic training collars has helped thousands of people increase their dog’s performance and off-leash reliability while decreasing behavior problems ranging from OCD to aggression issues.

Robin possesses the ability to ‘read’ dogs and formulate techniques for them as individuals. Through patient instruction, Robin focuses attention on what her clients want rather than what they wish to avoid in terms of their dog’s behaviors, and this makes Robin stand out in the dog training industry.

After a rewarding 24 year run at the helm of That’s My Dog!, Robin sold the business to the current owner, Sherry Moore, to provide more time to travel to continue to help dog owners and other professional trainers throughout the country.

Robin is a sought-after expert dog behavior specialist in the dog training industry and That’s My Dog! is fortunate to have her as a guiding mentor now and in the future!
