Dana Scott—Dogs Naturally's Founder And Editor In Chief— takes you through the Dogs Naturally offices out in the country. Take a peek into what we do everyday and see the team in motion!
We get lots of questions and requests like:
“Who works at Dogs Naturally?"
"What's the office look like?"
"We want to see your dogs!” Well, we have answered your call, and today Dana will give you the guided tour!
There's never been an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour at Dogs Naturally. This is truly a first for us and we are so glad to share it with you.
How our days start:
The crew here starts working when the rooster crows every morning. (Literally. There's a neighbouring rooster that crows at the crack of dawn. Every. Day.)
We work on plenty of random projects you may never have believe actually takes place right here at DN Headquarters! But before we get into that, Let's take you room by room.
When it's early and you're working in the dark because you forgot to turn on your lamp ...
Steph D is the heart and soul of content and email. In fact, she is probably typing this up right now. She is the motor that keeps our marketing department running and she builds out campaigns, newsletters and other communications.
She also occasionally works in the dark. Sometimes we just get so busy, we forget to do the simple things like turning on a lamp, or changing the water jug in the cooler.
The marketing department also includes Stephanie S. Yes, there are two Stephanie's and it occasionally gets a little confusing around here.
She sits opposite of other Steph and works on social media marketing, building product pages and courses. She also works on video recording and production.
Where The Brilliant Scheming Happens :-)
The marketing office is where the gears turn and amazing ideas churn out. You'll see our large white boards filled with "a beautiful mind" scribblings galore.
Why Dana chose the country office ...
The answer is simple. Our entire focus at Dogs Naturally is to provide the best possible life for our four-legged companions, and Dana's dogs are reaping the benefits!
That's why we work in an environment where dogs are not only welcome, but they have it all. (Including a the biggest yard ever!)
It's not unusual to have to step over a black lab or two when moving around the office, or hearing the rumbles of a good snore coming from a napping dog.
Dana's office includes a fireplace, desk and a boardroom table. You'll also notice a few large dog beds and a chair dedicated for dog naps (and the occasional employee nap when planning for our larger events).
There's a whole crew who camps upstairs, and some of them, you may have even talked to before.
Daniel is in charge of all of our graphics and website functions. If you're familiar with the Dogs Naturally Magazine, Dogs Naturally Academy, our website, or even the beautiful images we have in the store... Daniel is the creative guy behind it all.
Beth is our customer service guru who spends her time helping our dedicated DN community. She works with our team to provide the best customer care service she can. You may have chatted with Beth over the phone or via email!
Kailan is our Social Media and Academy Pro. She's the one who communicates in all of our Facebook groups and pages, schedules out all of our posts and communications. She also works in our Dogs Naturally Academy, uploading video and making sure you guys get all of the fun things you signed up for! We call her The Encyclopedia, because she has every single one of our articles filed away in her reference library of a brain.
We also have a popcorn machine because, well, we wanted one.
Here's one of those random projects we told you about before, that happens in house ...
They have a video room? What?
Here's where you meet "the other Steph" and get a look at our video production room.
We love video here at Dogs Naturally, and we know you love it too!
Dana and Steph S spend a fair amount of time writing script and shooting and editing video.
This room is literally where we shot every single module for our Dogs Naturally University courses and any other fun videos you've seen on Facebook or our website.
Shout out to our other amazing employees
Unfortunately you didn't get to meet everyone in this video!
We have Karen who runs the Dogs Naturally Market and Julia who runs our Chicago office. Both Karen and Julia fit the team perfectly: they have the same passion and love for dogs as we do here.
This concludes our tour!
This is the part of the tour where we say goodbye and make one more mention: YOU.
The very best part of our job is getting feedback from the DN community. If we can help someone, even just a little bit, with the health of their dog, we had a successful day. And lucky for us, we hear this feedback everyday.
This business was built on passion and the genuine love and care for animals, and years later, it's still the steam that pushes this train along.
Thanks for riding with us and we will see you soon !
