Our Staff

Trish has been part of our family since 2002. She has a background in dog behavior and positive reinforcement training. When not tending to our guests, she enjoys spending time outdoors with her husband and three little girls, as well as her English Setters.


Shannon is the main person in our offices. She takes care of billing, reservations and just about anything else you can think of. If you have called in to our offices or emailed us chances are you have interacted with Shannon! When she isn't on the phone she loves to relax at home with her awesome husband and their wonderful little girl.

Dietz is one of our most versatile staff members here at the resort. You can find him anywhere from our grooming room to our bird room taking care of all manner of animals who come through our doors. When he isn't keeping the kennel running smoothly he prefers to spend his time outdoors enjoying all types of activities!


Sarah is our morning daycare driver and she loves to interact with the daycare and Stay N Play pups everyday. She says everyday brings something new and it keeps her on her toes. When she isn't taking care of the pups she volunteers at a local firehouse and enjoys spending time outdoors.


Brittany is our evening daycare driver who just graduated from Penn State with a degree in Neuropsychology. She plans to use her degree combined with her love of dogs to unlock the secrets of a dogs brain. In the mean time she is content to spend her days tiring out our daycare dogs and taking them home happy and exhausted to their wonderful owners. 


Britney is a member of our kennel staff who enjoys taking our boarding dogs for swims in our indoor pool.  She can always be found outside interacting with different dogs and making lifelong friends. When she is not at the kennel she enjoys going on adventures with her husband and being one cat short of crazy. 


KC is another one of our versatile staff members she was our morning bus driver for a long time and has recently taken up a position inside the kennel. You can often find her in the grooming room brushing dogs or in our play fields exercising energetic pups or perhaps you called in and talked to her on the phone. When she isn't trying to be everywhere at once you can find her at home with her wonderful husband and three little boys who keep her on her toes more than the pups ever could!


Nate is our former office manager who is currently studying at Penn State University but not to worry you can still see him and his beloved lab Jaxin around the kennel from time to time. They just can't seem to stay away! Jaxin especially loves helping other dogs overcome their fear of the indoor swimming pool and Nate loves to interact with clients and dogs alike!


Last but certainly not least we have Becky who is the owner of Royal Pet Resort. Becky has been in the animal business for well over 30 years. Her love of animals started at a young age and it led her to major in Animal Sciences and a minor in business through Penn State University. She used this knowledge to first open a retail pet store that specialized in avian and exotic pets which remained in business for eleven years before finally opening Royal Pet Resort. She has sat on the board of directors for Centre Wild Life Care and is a 2019 Graduate of Leadership Centre County. You won't find a more dedicated, hardworking and compassionate person than Becky. When she isn't assisting her staff in the day to day activities around the kennel she can be found spending time with her family, her dogs and working with children and horses on her farm the Buffalo Run Equestrian Center
