John Sturgess


Adogo Pet Hotels




After more than two decades in the “human hotel” business,” former Carlson Hotels Worldwide executive John Sturgess shifted his focus to a new clientele: dogs. Now with four Adogo pet hotels—in Minnetonka, Hopkins, Maple Grove and, as of last year, near the MSP International Airport in Richfield—Sturgess is broadening his portfolio with a consultancy aimed at pet-based businesses. Now, on top of watching over your dog, Sturgess and his agency, RetrieveOne, offer training to bring that pet furniture or salon business to a corner near you.
