MEET THE AUNTIES

Stone Dog Inn is owned and operated by Nikki Brey Ribeiro, an avid dog lover with years of experience in the field of animal care. After graduating from the University of Connecticut with a degree in Sociology, Nikki decided to follow her passion for working with animals. Nikki previously worked in the pet care industry as a Dog Walker, Animal Shelter Volunteer, Groomer, and Veterinarian Technician.

 

Our team is pet CPR & First Aid certified, and personally care for each pup that walks through our doors.

​​If you've been to Stone Dog Inn, chances are you've seen Nikki Ribeiro! Nikki started SDI back in 2008 and we are SO glad that she did. Nikki is almost always on site and is constantly creating new ways to make SDI your dog's home away from home.

 

When Nikki isn't at SDI, she can be found snuggling up at home with her own fur babies - Whaler, Sedona, Pigeon, Paco & Ella (her newest addition to the pack, a BARC rescue!)

We asked Nikki where she would love to travel to next and she would love to go to Africa to experience the elephants! 

Maggie graduated from UMass Boston in 2013 and was fortunate enough to spend the following years with an assortment of wonderful travel experiences and small city apartments. Ultimately, she found that there was no place like home and back to MA she came. After nearly a decade in the food service industry, she found her true passion was working with pups, and when she found SDI, she knew it was meant to be.

 

When Maggie isn't at SDI you can find her hanging with her cats, driving all over the country, adventuring with her husband, or eating half a dozen donuts at a time--PVDonuts or bust!

If Maggie had to pick one meal to eat forever it would be?

Tacos & Margaritas!

When Aughtum isn't at SDI she enjoys adventuring with her twins Maeve and Mason, cooking, playing with her rescue pup Cassie or trying new restaurants!

What's a fun fact not many people know about Aughtum?

Catherine joined SDI shortly after graduating UNH in 2021 with her Business Management & Marketing Degree. Catherine has always been an animal lover since she could walk, and always hoped to one day combine her passion and career into one. Since starting at SDI Catherine has been able to use her degree and is the face and brain behind our marketing and social media platform. 

When Catherine is not at SDI, she is most likely spoiling her own pups, Brady & Bo. You can always find them exploring new trails, parks, & beaches together. Catherine has also received her Massachusetts Realtor license and has been learning all there is to know about the market! 

What destination is top on Catherine's bucket list? 

She would love to go back to Australia, where she studied abroad, and explore more of the Gold Coast!
