Meet the owners:

Welcome to Dutch Dogs!  I am Ashley Van Sloten, owner and operator.  My parents, Scott & Teresa, and sister, Megan, are my main supports in getting Dutch Dogs started.  I grew up in the rural Orange City area where I attended Orange City Christian School and graduated from Unity Christian High School in 2017.  I then moved to Cedar Rapids for a year where I studied pet grooming and business at Kirkwood Community College and worked at a dog daycare in North Liberty.  I have grown up loving animals and am excited to take my career in the pet services direction.  

While in Cedar Rapids, I quickly realized the need for pet services in my hometown of Orange City and moved back to the area to start my new business, Dutch Dogs. Dutch Dogs’ main mission is to provide your pets with a fun and safe environment. It’s our goal to care for the individual needs of each pet and make their stay as comfortable as possible. 

We want our kennels to be full and the doggie daycare to be thriving. We want to satisfy our customer’s needs by promoting a fun, yet caring setting for their beloved pets to enjoy while they are away. Customers can be better served when they have a trusted provider that knows them and their pet well, provides reliable care and can serve their pets’ full range of needs. We want people in Orange City to know that our employees will take care of their pets like they’re our own.
