Meet Our Team
Owner & Founder, Certified Pet Nutritionist
Elaina is originally from Nevada and recently returned to set up Three Happy Hounds after living most of her adult life in Utah.
She loves dirt as much as any dog, although probably enjoys a bath a little more than most dogs! Gardening is definitely her thing - but with tools not paws - and she has a habit of saying hi to dogs before their people - but don't take it personally!
She has been involved with many animal rescue and adoption organizations and is very passionate about fostering dogs.
Pet Retail & Nutrition Specialist
Frankie is a dog mom to two freckled rescues named Clover and Sage. They look related but they’re actually from two different shelters! Although Sage is deaf and most likely born that way, it does not stop him from living a life full of adventure.
One activity this little family loves to do together is go for walks in the desert.
Frankie has lived in Nevada for most of her life and loves to travel and explore new places. When she isn’t chasing around her dogs you can find her tending to her 50+ houseplants.
Frankie has always enjoyed helping others whether they’re talking, barking, or photosynthesizing!
Frankie has been with Three Happy Hounds since first opening their doors in 2018. Frankie is a Certified Pet Nutritionist and consistently continuing her education in canine and feline nutrition.
Store Greeter and Tour Director
Miss Ava Jane is an English Crème Golden Retriever with a boat load of energy! Her Mom is pretty sure she will forever remain and act like a puppy!
Ava greets you with a sassy Woo Woo & her signature bounce which will put a smile on anyone’s face. She will happily guide you through the store showing you all her favorite treats and toys. Don’t be surprised when she tricks you into letting her sample something from the treat bar with a wink, smile and a happy wag of her tail that says “don’t tell Mom”.
Ava’s hobbies include keeping the yard free from squirrels and finding any eggs the chickens may have laid in random places before Mom can get them.
MISS PIPPA MARIE
Chief Product Tester
Miss Pippa Marie was born with a cleft palate and had reconstructive surgery at 4 months old.
This girl knows her toys and food and you can be sure she only picks the best for our store. In fact the UPS and FEDEX guys know her by name we get so many deliveries!
She has an insane obsession with her Huckama so she knows a good quality toy when she finds one.
She is always up for any adventure and you can follow her on Facebook under Peace, Love and Pippa Marie.
Customer Relations Director
Abbey Lynn is a Golden Retriever and a registered Therapy Dog - so she'll make you feel right at home and calm the nerves of any dog who isn't fond of having a bath!
She is in charge of Customer Relations so if you see her she'll likely offer her paw to say hi. She might even bring you a toy (or perhaps a sock if she has one!) to welcome you to the store.
And if you're really lucky you will be treated to her happy butt wiggle - Beyonce has nothing on this girl when it comes to butt moves!
*Abbey Lynn is now playing in Rainbow Bridge but she will forever remain an important part of the Three Happy Hounds family and brand.
Head of Merchandising
Lilly Ann is a Brittany mix and she spent her early years being bounced from home to home so she's got a lot of experience in different environments and knows how to make one comfortable and welcoming.
She often redecorates the house when she's bored so we gave her the full time job as Head of Merchandising in the store. Which means you may find things in a different place each time you visit!
