Meet Our Team!
Rachel has always had a passion for animals, but it was in middle school that her thirst for knowledge first developed. In high school, she took animal science where her class had its own pet shop and grooming business. Rachel had grown up with pets at home, but it was here that she started to learn about canines; breeds, anatomy and overall health. After graduating from high school, Rachel went on to obtain an Associates Degree in Animal Management from Niagara County Community College. After graduation, she started to look for a career and has been at A Dog’s Dream since July of 2011. She loves being a part of the Dream Team!
Russ joins the team after having spent over 20 years in the corporate world working as an accountant and project manager for several Global organizations. Having returned to the Rochester area in 2013, this step fulfills a longtime desire to become a small business owner and allows Russ to pursue his passion and love of animals. Russ has always been an animal lover and has owned various dogs over the years, currently spoiling his Alaskan Malamute, Cinda. This is an exciting time for everyone and our ‘Dream Team’ looks forward to continuing to provide high-quality services to you and your dogs.
