About The Dog Resort
Established in 2009
Mona Elassiouti, owner of The Dog Resort, founded her company under unusual circumstances. She received a call from the manager of the facility were her dog was boarding, informing her that the owner of the facility had come in, taken her computer and files and announced that the business was closed, effective immediately.
With a full house of Christmas boarders, and staff who would no longer be paid, Mona didn’t think twice about dipping into her savings to finance the operation, to ensure the dogs continued to receive care.
A lifelong dog advocate and avid dog enthusiast, with decades of business management and ownership experience, Mona now considers herself to have received a gift from god.
For two long months, Mona depleted her savings to provide services purchased from the previous owner. On March 1, 2009 Mona signed a lease with the property owner and The Dog Resort was born.
