Daniel Ottersen - General Manager

Daniel has been with Applebrook from the very beginning and has done everything from keeping our guests well fed, exercised and happy, to rebuilding concrete walkways and new kennel runs over the years.  Cats are his favorite as he has 4 at home, but loves all of the dogs here like they were his own.

Dana Olenik

Dana is our part time kennel staff, full time pack leader. When she’s not off running around with the dogs, she’s taking pictures of them. If you see (good) pictures on our facebook page, chances are it’s her hand behind them. When she’s not working she can be found going on Pack Walks with her dog Bubba.

Dave Tollefsen

Dave has been with Applebrook Inn since 2012, and definitely has built a rapport with our canine customers. When he’s not working, he enjoys volunteering his time at a local shelter. He has a dog named Ford who begrudgingly shares his house with an endless amount of foster kittens.
