TERESA WEBER

TERESA WEBER

OWNER

Teresa Weber is a mother, a friend and a true dog lover! Her first path in life began after graduating from SUNY Oneonta with a Masters Degree in Elementary Education. This lead Teresa to her first career as a teacher for over seventeen years.

Eventually Teresa was ready for a new challenge and wanted to pursue opportunities in business. She co-founded a commercial cleaning business in the Capital District over ten years ago and continues to successfully work and manage it with her business partner.

Now, Teresa is on the rise again, and wants to combine her knowledge of business with her life’s passion, dogs! Teresa has spent her life around dogs; from always having a family pet, to breeding and adopting those in need of rescue. Teresa has proven she has a true knack and love for dogs.

Opening up a doggy day care just made sense. A place for her own dogs to play along with friends from the community, was a true vision for Teresa.

Stop in to meet Teresa, Brina, her bull mastiff, or Gordie and Delilah, her two Bichons. You may even meet her husband and three grown children. The whole gang will be in and out of this new family business. We hope to see you soon!


TERI RUDOLPH

TERI RUDOLPH

Trainer

Teri Rudolph is a true dog lover first, and a dog trainer second. She knows first-hand the difference dog training makes in the relationship between dog and owner. Without professional training it can sometimes be a frustrating relationship, however with an investment in kind gentle humane training, a wonderful transformation will occur. She spent a lot of time volunteering at the Mohawk and Hudson River Humane Society, where Teri came to realize that a lack of good training was often the reason that owners would surrender wonderful pets that just needed to be taught good manners.

She is a 2010 graduate of the Animal Behavior College where she earned certification as an ABC Certified Dog Trainer. In July of 2012 she also became certified as an ABC Mentor Trainer to help inspire and train others who may choose dog training as a career.

Teri has been working with dogs since she was a child. Her love and appreciation grew even more as she worked for a small dog kennel owned by a breeder of Labrador Retrievers throughout high school. Together with her husband, Teri has raised several wonderful Labs alongside her children over the past 25 years.

Teri understands the bond that we have with our pets as they are part of our family. There is nothing that satisfies her more than to see a happy dog and a happy dog owner! Teri’s mission is to help you and your dog bond and enjoy many happy years together.
