Pets Companion Inn prides itself on its small team of well-trained, long-term employees.
Our team members have a love for animals and combined service of over 30 years. Our customers enjoy getting to know us, and we enjoy getting to know your pets. In fact, nothing warms our hearts like when your pets are excited to see us again.
Meet our Team Leaders. They will be taking care of your pets every time they stay with us:
Sharon is our Operations and Office Manager. She, like all of our primary team, has completed many hours of continuing education in pet care, pet first aid, and CPR. She has been taking care of our guests here for over 16 years. She has hand-raised everything from baby deer, squirrels and raccoon, to abandoned baby rabbits while working here. Her two dogs, Tinkie and Onyx, spend lots of time with us here. When she’s not working, Sharon loves hunting, riding motorcycles, and spending time with her teenage daughter.
Danny is our Kennel Manager, and has been a fixture for many of our customers for 20 years. He has also completed many hours of continuing education in pet care, pet first aid, and CPR. Not seen as often at the front desk, Danny spends most of his day in the kennel with the dogs. He is our “go-to guy” for who does what, and when, in the kennel. He, like all of our team, has hands-on contact with each pet every day. When he’s off the clock, Danny is an avid gamer who spends much of his time in the World of Warcraft.
Gwen Habenicht, Owner
Gwen began Pet’s Companion Inn on Quail Roost Farm in 1981. Before opening PCI, Gwen bred and showed Bassets and Whippets. She also showed Sporting and Hound breeds professionally. Her goal has always been to provide safe, clean, and comfortable care for pets in a calm, knowledgeable, and comfortable country atmosphere. She completed a two year program and became a Certified Kennel Operator years ago. She is currently a member of IBPSA, International Boarding and Pet Services Association, and attends monthly web-based seminars to continue learning the best pet care methods. When not at the kennel, Gwen’s main hobby is SCCA Solo Racing. She is a three time National Champion and winner of the prestigious Sports Car Club of America Solo Triad Award.
