Natasha Arritt · Lodge Manager
As our Lodge Manager, Natasha is in charge of the Lodging and Daycamp operations and personnel. She has been with Dogwoods since 2017, and can help you with any questions you may have about the day-to-day happenings at Dogwoods Lodge. She's heavily involved in making sure all the dogs are getting the best care possible!
Natasha grew up in Omaha, Nebraska and moved to Iowa to attend Iowa State University, receiving a degree in Animal Science. Before Dogwoods Lodge, she assisted in the management of a small Pomeranian breeding business for 4 years. There, she gained extensive knowledge in dog care, breeding and also dog showing. Her animal experience, combined with her laboratory background (both in Plant Pathology and Animal-related Bacteriology), provides a unique prospective to our team. In her free time, she enjoys the company of her animal family. She has been showing horses for over a decade, and spends her summer weekends showing all around the country, going on trail rides, and working on training projects. When she's not at Dogwoods, she takes care of three dogs of her own- two Great Danes (which you may see hanging around the Lodge) and an American Bulldog.
