MATTHEW STEWART / PRESIDENT AND CO-OWNER
SCOTT PARKER / CO-OWNER
Scott is a small business entrepreneur with a background in retail, services, and hospitality. He currently owns and operates five restaurants in Arlington and Alexandria, Virginia as well as other companies. Scott began speaking with Matthew about Dog Thrive in the fall of 2015. About one year, and a lot of hard work later, Dog Thrive opened for business. After working in other service industries, Scott is thrilled to be working in the dog industry, so that he can enrich the lives of dogs, and their owners!
TYLER PARKER / CO-OWNER
Tyler was born and raised in Southern, New Jersey, is married and has two young daughters. Tyler was previously employed as a Detective for the County of Cape May (NJ), where he served for a 10-year career in the Narcotics and the Special Victim’s Unit. However, the opportunity to join Scott and the Stewart brothers in a family owned and operated business, Dog Thrive, presented itself. The chance to join a business, working with amazing dogs every day, focusing on enriching the lives of those dogs was something he could not pass up. Therefore, he ended his career in law enforcement, moved his family to the area and is happily entrenched at making Dog Thrive the best place for dogs to visit, play and stay!
