I started working at The Hipster Hound in Summer 2021, and I absolutely love it! My coworkers have become great friends, and the dogs are just the cherry on top. I have three dogs and a cat of my own. My dog, Macey, has become part of The Hipster Hound family, and her favorite thing is coming to work with me. I heard about this job when I was trying to find a doggy daycare for Macey, and I figured it would be a good fit for me too because I love dogs so much. I was 100% correct!

I’m from Greer, SC. I moved to the area to attend USCB. I found The Hipster Hound randomly while I was by the Diamond Causeway location getting gas. I saw a sign that they were hiring and emailed asking to apply.
In my free time, I’m always reading on the couch with my dog or out fishing. I of course love watching college football! I wanted to work at The Hipster Hound because I care about the dogs that come see us, and I love to spend time watching them goof around and play!
I was born and raised in Savannah. I love all things outdoors: boating, camping, fishing, hiking, kayaking, and the beach. I have never met an animal I did not love and adore! I have three fur babies: Praline is a 13-year-old Pomeranian, Gus is an 18-month-old Boykin Spaniel, and Asher is a 10-year-old cat.
I've been working at The Hipster Hound since May 2022, and I absolutely love it. I get to play with, love on, and care for dogs every day. What more could a girl ask for?
Most of my Hipster Hound family knows me as Kida’s mom, my blue Doberman. Born and raised in Savannah, I’ve always had a pet, whether it be a snail, rabbit, hamster, dog, or even a goat! I love animals of all sorts, but my love for animals never had a place in my career until I found my spot at The Hipster Hound!
On my very first day at work here, I knew this was what I was meant to do. I started as a yard attendant, and as time passed, I took on other responsibilities behind the scenes. Now, I am up at the front where I can greet our guests with their fur babies as they arrive or send them home to their humans after a fun day at daycare! What makes it even better is that The Hipster Hound is locally owned and operated. I now have a career that I love and have made a small, extended family here! I can’t wait to see you and your fur babies soon at The Hipster Hound!

I’m from Woodward, OK, but I moved to Savannah as soon as I graduated high school. I guess you could say it was a calling and the best decision I could have made. In 2020, my girlfriend and I became involved with Renegade Paws Rescue. It has been such a rewarding experience to save dogs’ lives every day by volunteering, fostering, and participating in community outreach.
I met Tonya, the owner of The Hipster Hound, when we were avidly planning Wag-O-Ween, and that’s how I became interested in working here. I enjoy my job so much! I spent quite a few years working in the service industry, and I have to say, working with dogs has been such a joy! Basically, my life revolves around dogs, but I couldn’t be happier!
I'm originally from Nebraska, and I grew up with dogs my entire life. I've been working at The Hipster Hound since around 2017. I have also volunteered at a local Savannah rescue group called Coastal Pet Rescue. In my free time, I like to play video games.
I am originally from North Carolina, but I have been living in Georgia for most of my life. I love all dogs but mainly bigger breed dogs. Before joining The Hipster Hound, I worked at another dog business, but I feel I have found my home here! I have a young son, and my hobbies include arts and crafts like painting and drawing. I also play softball and volleyball.

I am from Destin, Florida, but my family moved constantly, so we could never have a dog, which only made me love them more! My grandpa also loved dogs, so I remember he always had a new puppy to meet whenever I visited. I’m a big fan of rescues dog organizations, and I love just about every breed, size, and age of dog. I love cats, too. Working at The Hipster Hound has allowed me to work with all the animals I love and make new friends every day!

I'm a yard attendant at The Hipster Hound, and I haven't found a dog that I don't love to pieces! My favorite part of working at The Hipster Hound is being able to love on the dogs while also keeping their play yard clean and safe for all the fun we have!
I am originally from New York but moved to beautiful Georgia when I got married. We've been here for many years now and still love it! I have a 6-year-old and 5-year-old twins. Collectively, we also have four pet additions: our dog, a cat, and two ball pythons!
I’ve been working at The Hipster Hound since August 2020. Initially, my job was “temporary” to help catch up on some office work, but after a few months, Tonya and Nick invited me to stay! My dog, Lily, gets to come play at work with me. I’m usually in the side office when all the dogs arrive in the morning, and I love to greet them as they come in.
I spend my days at The Hipster Hound making sure things run as smoothly as possible. There’s a lot to do behind the scenes to ensure all of our dogs (and their humans) are happy. I like to call myself “support staff” because I pretty much help where I’m needed, whether it’s booking appointments, updating vaccination records, working on the website, or helping organize the weekly bus schedule. I absolutely LOVE making personal connections with our clients. Occasionally, I’ll pop into one of the play yards to spend some time with the dogs. I call it my “puppy fix.”

I have lived in Savannah since around 2011 after moving around the world before my dad retired from the Army. I enjoy all things outdoors, spending time with my three kitty cats, and am so lucky to have rescued the most snuggly pittie from the Humane Society!
Working at The Hipster Hound is hands down my favorite job that I’ve ever had! I have learned so much about dogs, and what’s even better is getting to know the pups that come to play and stay with us! Thank you for bringing your babies to hang out with us!
I was born and raised in Savannah. I love horses and have ridden for a few years now. I started working at The Hipster Hound in 2018 as a way to pay for my horse shows, and I have loved being a part of the team here! I started as a yard attendant, but due to an injury, I was out for several months. I came back during quarantine as a retail associate and baker. Now, I do both positions at our Diamond Causeway location. I’ve loved getting to work with our furry clients and their parents!
Growing up in Savannah, I had three family dogs that lived to their mid- to late teen years! One day, I would like to become a veterinarian, but I like working at The Hipster Hound as a yard attendant in the meantime because it allows me to be around dogs in a stage of life where it is difficult for me to own one. I also enjoy being an Eagle Scout and being part of my church’s handbell choir.
I’m from Greeleyville, SC, and I’m currently a student at Savannah State University. I enjoy basketball and fishing. I joined The Hipster Hound in June 2022, and I like working here because it’s a fun, welcoming environment, and being around dogs every day makes me happy!

I was born in Nice, France but grew up in New York. I met my wife, Virginia, in Kyoto, Japan 25 years ago. We recently named our new puppy Kyoto because he was born 25 years after our first date there! We have lived in New York City and Los Angeles, but I had been begging Virginia to move to her native city of Savannah for the past 25 years, and now, we're finally here!
I grew up with dogs but haven't had one in 25 years due to the nature of being a journalist and traveling. I've been wanting to take a break from journalism, and this job is the perfect fit! The team is great. I like everyone. I'm touched by the amount of care and professionalism the staff displays because they go the extra mile. I’ll be driving the Waggin’ Wagon, so if you see me, give me a wave!
I heard from a family member that The Hipster Hound was the perfect place to work for dog lovers. I really love working here, and I love playing with and interacting with the dogs on a daily basis.
I have three cats at home named Mille, Mimzy, and Max. I also have a Labrador-American Bulldog mix named Samson. Thank you for letting me be a part of your dog’s day!
I’m from Dallas, TX. I chose to work at The Hipster Hound because I missed working with animals after working as a pet professional for house visits in the past. The Hipster Hound had the best facilities and services for my own pup, so I decided it would be a great workplace while I work toward my MFA in Service Design at SCAD. I really enjoy the fact that I can spend all day with dogs and bring my own dog with me while I’m at work. I’m so grateful that I have co-workers who can offer seasoned advice on dogs, and I can already see my pup’s lifestyle improving.
I have a white Shepherd/Terrier mix named Luna. I also have two family dogs back at home in Texas: Kayden, a Golden Retriever, and Cody, a German Shepherd/Akita mix. I grew up with many dogs and even had seven cats in our house when I was young. I love cooking, baking, the outdoors, and, of course, animals.
I am from Savannah and have lived here my whole life here. I love going out on the boat and working with animals. I have one dog, Annie, who is a 13-year-old Pit Bull/Labrador Retriever mix, and two cats, Bagheera and Mowgli. I started working at The Hipster Hound in May 2022, and I have fallen in love with every dog I meet here!

I’m originally from Columbus, OH, but I’ve been living in Savannah since 2011. I’ve been working at The Hipster Hound since October of 2018. I started as a pet sitter, and when we expanded and opened the Diamond Causeway location, I started working there.
I have one dog named Lucy, a Chiweenie. In my free time, I love to lift weights, travel, go for walks, and spend time at the beach. Thank you for letting me take care of your fur babies!
