I’m Kristal, owner of From the Paws Up. My family consists of Travis, our son Alex and Nora the beautiful mini Australian Shepherd. She's small, wiggly and super fluffy. We tell people we love to vacuum. HA!
From the Paws Up was born in 2011. Back then we had Foster, our full size Aussie. My corporate America career was based in Minneapolis and my heart broke knowing he was home alone for such long hours each day. I decided to combine my love for animals, exercise and the great outdoors into one fabulous job!
Hi! My name is Traci and I live in Minnetrista MN. I am married and a stay at home mom to a 12yr old son and 9yr old twin daughters. I have two sweet and crazy pups. Jack is a blue heeler/border collie mix and LOVES to watch tv! Josie, aka JoJo, is a treeing walker coon hound mix and enjoys using her voice as well as chasing chipmunks! I have had dogs my entire life with a few cats and birds along the way. Animals are such an important part of our lives and I am very excited to work with From the Paws Up and spending time with yours!
Hi! My name is Kathy. I live in Waconia, MN. I am married and a stay at home mom to a 10 year old and a 7 year old. We also have a dog named Bailey who is our baby. ALL of my kiddos are very active and keep me hopping! I grew up around many different kinds of animals and we always treated them as part of the family (even my pet cow!). I am very excited to join the From the Paws Up team and get to spend my time with animals!
