About Citizen Canine
Citizen Canine was opened in October 2000 by Tina Merrill, whose frequent business travel made her realize the importance of quality, reliable care for her own dogs. Citizen Canine was created to fill the need for a boarding and daycare service dedicated to the health and happiness of dogs. Tina formed a team committed to making her vision of superb care and service a reality. In 2014, Tina brought Randi Drake in as a local partner. Randi is President.
Our staff consists of dog care professionals dedicated to providing the proper care for our guests. From helping first-timers settle in and preparing special meals for finicky eaters to playing extra games of fetch and ensuring everyone is comfortable in their beds at night, our staff go the extra mile for our canine guests. As dog owners ourselves, we treat each guest as if they were our own.
Randi Drake, President
Randi joined Citizen Canine as local partner and President of the company in 2014. Randi is a volunteer at the East Bay SPCA and a member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers. She lives in Piedmont with her husband, two children, along with their wheaten terriers, Dixie Lu and Maggie.
