Meet Our Devoted and Experienced Team Members

Laura Schleef

Owner and Head Trainer

Laura opened the Doggie Depot of Virginia in 2017. She spends time at home with her German Shepherd-Beagle mix, her Border Collie mix and her new Australian Shepherd puppy. Some day, she would like to own an Irish Setter. Animals are sometimes drawn to her, including a groundhog that tried to take shelter in her car engine.

Lily Jones


Lily joined the Doggie Depot team in 2018. She has 5 dogs at home, including a Beagle, Treeing Walker Hound, Lab mix, Dachshund mix and a Husky mix. She also has a cat. She will argue one of the dogs and the cat aren’t hers. Her favorite breed is the American Pit Bull Terrier and someday she would love to open a dog sanctuary.

Tori Wysocki

Dog Daycare Supervisor

Tori started with the Doggie Depot in 2022. Tori has two dogs at home, a deaf Pit mix and another bully mix puppy. If she could have any breed, it would be a Great Dane. When not working, they try to drag her away from her studies.
