My name is Blythe Penna and I am very proud to say that I am the owner of Ruffin’ Wranglers Dog Excursions. This story all began when Roma, my Vizsla, came into my life in 2006. Simple. I fell in love. I decided in those first months that I could not get on a plane and leave her on a weekly basis.
I grew up in South Carolina, graduated from Clemson University with a B.A. in Psychology in 1991 and went in to Medical Device Sales in 1992. I spent 14 incredible years in Medical Devices. I was fortunate to build a very successful career with Horizon Medical Products, good ol’ HMP, in vascular access devices. I then went on to work for RITA, a Radiofrequency Ablation Company and finally Haemonetics. I was in sales, sales management, marketing, product design and development, product launching and sales training. I did it all and moved 7 times for those companies.
Then there was “The Roma”! Roma needed a ton of exercise! She loves nothing more than hiking, running, playing and now, Kitty Cat Spotting in the city! I decided that I would be able to deliver a dog excursion experience that would allow dogs to run free and get the exercise and socialization they craved. I knew I would do everything within my power to have a service that surpassed the parent’s expectations.
I love the potential in all things…animals, humans and business. I am passionate about working hard, building teams, creating something that makes a difference in dog’s and their human’s lives. I know that most dog people can understand the sheer joy we get when a dog comes undone as Ruffin’ Wranglers pulls up in the SNIFF Mobile! It is the best! We love bringing joy to our dogs and of course feeling that same heartfelt joy is a pretty nice reward.
Ruffin’ Wranglers has been in business for over a decade now and for a reason…we love what we do and it shows! We look forward to another decade of wrangling!
Love- Aunt B
