Terri B. - Owner

Our facility is locally owned and operated by a twenty-five year experienced veteran of the pet care industry who understands all aspects of pet welfare and behavior. Terri has acted as an Advisor to the Mayor Miami on Animal Affairs and as Executive Director of the Nashville Humane Association prior to owning a five-star pet resort in Boulder, Colorado.

She has been active in all breed rescue across the country and has joined forces with the Humane Society of the US several times to respond to disasters. She moved to the Charleston area to be closer to her family and brings her expertise and love for all animals to her job every day at In the Doghouse. Terri’s extended family includes two children as well as several rescued labs and golden retrievers, cats, and a parrot.

Jessica H. - Manager


Jessica has been the manager of In the Doghouse for almost five years and brings a smile to work every day as she truly enjoys working with clients and their dogs. She is a Charleston native and she grew up with pets of all varieties and is especially fond of golden retrievers. Her extended family includes her beautiful daughter and two spoiled golden retrievers.

Monica R. - Groomer

Monica, who switched careers mid-life to pursue her passion for animals, has been a professional groomer for over ten years.
