CRYSTAL REPKO, STORE MANAGER
Crystal is a graduate of Alvernia University where she received a degree in General Science and Secondary Education. Initially working for a lab in the Environmental / Water Testing industry, she decided to pursue her passion of working with dogs.
Currently working as a sales associate at The Dawg Store, she has recently completed her Foundations Seminar At PetMassage Institute in Toledo, OH and is now a canine massage provider.
Crystal’s initial interest in canine massage came as a result of massaging her own dogs and realizing the many benefits (ranging from its calming effects, to pain relief, to stronger bonds with the dog) each of her dogs received from massage. Crystal is pursuing further canine massage experience through additional coursework at PetMassage Institute.
Becky is a graduate of the University of Maryland where she received her bachelor’s degree in Psychology and is the newest addition to the Awesome Dawg Store family.
Becky attended the first of many training classes with her Doberman Pinscher, Lexi, in 2014 and desires only the best products and services for Lexi. She is excited to meet you and your special companion and talk about how our dogs evolved into family members and what we can do to better meet their needs.
Becky and Lexi can often be found playing in the Dawg Park, attending an Awesome Dawgs group class, or volunteering with a local Search and Rescue team.
Linda Williams is the most recent addition to our Dawg Store staff. She is a graduate of West Virginia University and the University of Wyoming with degrees in Civil Engineering and Water Resources. She was a professional engineer in Wyoming and Colorado.
Linda has trained dogs for obedience and therapy. She also volunteered as a puppy raiser for a service dog organization. She was given Kringle, a Standard Poodle, to raise. Kringle was released from service dog training and subsequently adopted by Linda and her family. Linda and Kringle have taken classes at Awesome Dawgs. Kringle is now a Canine Good Citizen and therapy dog. He and Linda have competed in Tricks, Nose Work and Agility and enjoy learning new skills together.
Raisa is one of the newest members of the Dawg Store staff. She holds an Associate Degree in Veterinary Science upon graduating from Johnson College in 2018. Veterinary medicine, animal behavior, and pet nutrition are just a few of her many passions.
Since graduating, Raisa has been working at a local animal hospital as a CVT (certified veterinary technician), but recently found that she wanted to broaden her horizon. She has been able to learn many new things in her short time here at Awesome Dawgs, and even completed several classes with her little Border Collie named Jeza. She hopes to continue training with Jeza in agility and pursue her own dreams in the process. Feel free to stop by the Dawg Store to say “hi”.

Deb looks forward to meeting you and your “awesome dawg” in the store.
