Dr. Dale grew up in Lewiston, ID and attended college at University of Idaho in Moscow before getting his DVM degree from Washington State University in 1983. After graduating, he spent a year working in a practice in northwest Washington.

He returned to his hometown of Council and started a mixed animal veterinary hospital where he was the only praccticing doctor for 10 years. Dr. Lake then decided to expand his abilities in small animal medicine and surgery and sold his practice. He then took a position in a small animal practice in Battle Ground, WA where he worked as an associate doctor.

A large corporation purchased the hospital for which he became medical director and took a position of local president for the state corporations in Oregon and Washington. He practiced in this hospital for 23 years developing skills in advanced orthopedic surgery, laparoscopy, and endoscopy. 

After deciding to go back into private practice, he started a relief veterinary practice where he worked for several veterinary hospitals in Washington state as well as the Boise area, which triggered his relationship with All Valley Animal Care Center.

He is very excited to join a practice that has the excellent technology available to be able to offer the high quality services that he is passionate about.

Dr. Lake enjoys spending time with his wife, Lynn, in Bear, ID where they are building their home on family property.  He likes to build things from lumber that he harvests and mills from his timber. Dr. Lake also takes pleasure in making cabinets, fashion leather crafting items such as saddles, and really enjoys the art of brewing beer.  He treasures being a grandfather of six that he can spoil and then send back to their parents. He plays a fiddle in his spare time, and loves sitting on his cabin deck with Lynn in the evenings.  Like most people in the veterinary field, he has a multitude of animals, mostly rescued pets that he and his wife enjoy.  He and Lynn love traveling to the Florida Keys for sun and fun. 

He is very proud to be a member of the All Valley Animal Care Center team!
