Francesca McFadden | Founder & CEO

Francesca was born an entrepreneur. At age 10, she was hosting garage sales at recess and birthday parties for classmates after school. Francesca has always loved making an impact in people's lives, no matter how small. After university, Francesca worked for a biotech startup, helping raise over $2 million in capital. Her love for dogs (and her pup Hershey) led to the start of Doggos, where she would work mornings, lunches and evenings to get things off the ground. Today she oversees all operations, events, and partnerships at Doggos while looking for new ways to grow the community!

Lea Burbidge| Chief Operating Officer

If you’ve been to one of our events, then you’ve got a glimpse of what Lea does for Doggos. There’s a lot of work that goes into our events and Lea tackles each challenge as they arise. Our events are far from typical, and we credit that to Lea's instinctive creativity and tenacious drive to create something bold. She actively connects with dog-parents in our community to expand the scope of what Doggos can do.

Carlos Mendes | Chief Marketing Officer

Did you stumble upon Doggos on Instagram? Chances are, you came across one of Carlos’ hilarious and engaging stories, reels or in-feed posts! Carlos is a high school teacher by day but an Instagram and social media star by night.

 

When he’s not creating content for Doggos or engaging with our amazing dog community, he’s managing his Pomeranian @walnutpom

We create immersive and interactive events that move the world toward pet ownership accessibility.
