Hi, my name is Teddy. I am the Danielson Office Dog. I was born in Dallas, TX in 2013 and received formal training for my job at PETCO in 2014. My owner is Mike Lawson who also owns Danielson. He is the President, but he is really my servant and waits on me hand and foot. He gives me treats and walks me when I have to go... you know. I wish I had a private bathroom like my co-workers. I have aspirations to be the President one day but will settle for Executive Office Dog.
