Meet The Staff

dog groomer Krys Weum

Krystine Weum

Krystine grew up on a farm in rural Minnesota where she was able to have and care for an array of animals ranging from rabbits to horses. She graduated from Chiropractic College and spent 25 years caring for her patients nutritionally, structurally, and through guided exercise programs. During that time, not only helping her patients, she also started working alongside vets to enhance the lives of many dogs and cats. 

Her love of animals as well as recognizing a need for a facility that was home-like, fun, and safe, led to the opening of Bark Avenue Pet Lodge. She spends her spare time working obedience and agility training with her Standard Poodle, Ramsey. She and her husband, Rick, also have four cats: Jinx, Essie, Dolly and Cricket.

Kelly Zinn

Kelly Zinn has two children and has been married for twelve years, and before she met her wonderful husband, she loved a variety of animals including raccoons, squirrels, reptiles, and even a pet pig! Kelly has an impressive resume with a total of seven years experience as a Vet Assistant before she came onboard at Bark Avenue. Of course, dogs are her main passion and when she and her family are not out playing sports or hiking with their dogs Leo and special Redford, they are home with their pet guinea pig called “Mr. Pig”. 

Kelly is certified in ISCC Accident Prevention and Emergency First Aid Program for Pets and CPR certified in dogs. She is also certified in U.S Pet Pro Classic Preparation, Bathing, Drying, and Topical Conditioning of canine and decline coats.
