Candace Cooper was born in Fort Worth and developed a love for animals at a very young age. After college she worked in the airline industry, moved to Lake Tahoe gaining experience in the hotel industry, and eventually made her way back to Fort Worth to be closer to family. During her travels, Candace noticed how many dog daycares were available in the larger cities. Upon her return, she saw the rejuvenation of our downtown and recognized a need for those same services. After a year of research and searching for the perfect location (a large grassy yard, close to downtown), Candace took a leap of faith on the Near Southside area and opened Doggie Diggs. Despite the concerns from those around her regarding both her location and occupation of choice, Candace worked diligently on building an integrity-driven, positive business and has not had to look back once in these past seven years!
