Our Founder – Wayne Ragen

Wayne Ragen founded Dawg Gone It, offering the very best daycare and lodging services for dogs on the Monterey Peninsula.Wayne has loved dogs his entire life. From his very earliest childhood memories a dog has always been by his side. His love of animals led him to a 26-year career caring for and training lions and tigers. His fascination of pride dynamics was a natural lead in to the dynamics of pack behavior. This combination of animal husbandry skills, training, and a never ending love of dogs helped Wayne found Dawg Gone It as an organization that always puts the needs of dogs first.
