Meet The Team




Pipsqueak Pups is a family owned business developed by a busy dog owner for busy dog owners. Having to leave her own fur-baby home alone for long work days, PSP owner Sonja knew others were in need of pet service.  Over the past 12 years, she has continually worked to improve, develop, and provide quality pet service including daycare, home boarding and puppy training classes. Sonja has created her own brand of homemade organic cooked dog food for your precious pup called Charlie's Famous Muttballs. TASTE THE LOVE!



Pipsqueak Pups manager Brian has been a team member for over 9 years and is our top-notch home boarding specialist. Brian has built long-lasting relationships with all our clients and their dogs. Brian has always had a deep love for animals and a desire to care for them. He has the best time playing, petting, feeding, walking the pups and is a dedicated loving member of the Pipsqueak Pups team. As Brian says, “I have the best profession in the world that comes with unconditional love!”

The Rest Of The Pack


Taylor has worked with dogs for many years. She has expressed that it is extremely rewarding to be able to provide them with all the love and attention at Pipsqueak Pups.  Her favorite part of working with dogs is being able to watch their personalities flourish as they grow.

Verda loves all animals and helps Brian with home boarding the pups at their cozy home.


Giovanna moved here from Brazil 8 years ago and speaks three languages. She loves all animals and has a dog and cat of her own. She is happy when she sees that all the pups at daycare go home happy.


Sue grew up on a sheep and cattle station in Australia, so has been around animals most of her life, and values their importance in our lives - especially dogs, from working breeds to pets.

She has had a varied career, including nursing, where she has travelled extensively; branching out into vocational rehabilitation and even working as a barista with Starbucks for over 20 years. All the time staying connected to dogs, as a dog-walker for many years, and she is well known in the Kitsilano neighbourhood.

More recently, with her own two dogs, “Ramona” and “Coco.” Sadly, she had to say a fond farewell to Ramona in September 2022, and Coco is dependent on Sue, as she is blind.

“I was flattered when Sonja asked me if I could join the team at Pipsqueak Pups,” Sue says, “and it is such fun to be around so many different breeds and understand their traits and personalities. They all bring us such Joy.”
