Our Story

Meet Mireille, Bleu & Dasher

Furrtropolis blossomed from the inspiration of Mireille’s two furry companions, Dasher and Bleu. Before her career as a dog trainer, Mireille worked as a corporate accountant, but after becoming a proud fur mom to Bleu, she realized her true passion for animals. Their new dog trainer, Marie Aymard, introduced Mireille and Bleu to the world of Flyball.

Bleu excelled in Flyball, so Mireille signed her up for the Pacific Pups Flyball Club, immersing them in a vibrant dog sport community. Their experience in the club further ignited Mireille’s passion for athletic dogs and their bonds with their companions. When Mireille adopted Dasher, a playful Australian Shepherd, she sought to understand the genetic needs of different dog breeds. Further, Dasher’s training sessions with Marie led Mireille to become increasingly interested in dog training, which led her to intern with K9 Kalifas in Martinez, California.

Soon after, Mireille launched her dog training business from her home, Domestic Canine, where she offered board and train programs, private training sessions, home boarding, and daycare. Her love for dog sports and community fueled Mireille’s vision for a space offering diverse services to the pet community. As a result, Furrtropolis was born. The new pet care facility spans over 14,000 square feet in the heart of San Jose, offering diverse services to embrace both the pet owner, working and sport handler communities.
