Carly Tedeschi, BSEd

President & Founder

Carly, the owner of adAstraTraining and Pet Care, has been working with pets in various environments, including grooming salons, kennels, veterinary centers, dog walking, pet sitting, individual and group training, and doggy day care for the past 18 years.

Carly is a graduate of Brockton High School (class of 2001) and grew up in Brockton, MA. Carly earned her Bachelor's Degree in Education at Azusa Pacific University in California in 2005. She then went on to Special Education at Bridgewater State University for her Master's Degree, but after spending a couple of years teaching, walking and training dogs on the side, Carly knew her passion was to work with animals and switched her focus to Dog Care and Training.

In 2007, Carly started her business, then Delighted Doggy Pet Care, while Nicole had her own Dog training business in Seattle.

In 2012, the business was really booming so Nicole moved home to join Carly and they decided to combine services and work together to create the perfect team offering not only Dog walking and pet sitting, but added the much needed and vital part of the business- Dog Training. In addition to training, Nicole also brought her extensive background and knowledge on Animal Nutrition and we now offer Nutritional Counseling, Health and Wellness Counseling and much more!

Carly received her certificate as a Dog Obedience Instructor through Penn Foster College in 2010 and is a proud member of the Pet Professional Guild. Carly has participated in a variety of Dog Training Seminars, Workshops and Conferences all over the country, and completed a number of online courses focusing on Animal Health & Wellness, Aggression, Positive Reinforcement, Force-Free Training, Clicker Training, Temperament Testing, Nutrition, and Animal Behavior & Development.

Carly has extensive experience working with pets with special needs, is Canine CPR/First Aid Certified and is trained to handle pets in emergency situations. 

Carly, and the adAstra team, focus on using positive reinforcement and use a force free approach in all aspects of the business. 

Carly has spent countless hours volunteering at local animal shelters and veterinary hospitals including the Quincy Animal Shelter, MSPCA- Angell, Massachusetts Humane Society, Compassionate Care Veterinary Center, Braveheart Pit Bull Rescue, Animal Protection Center, Brockton Blue Dog Shelter, Paws4Survival, and currently The House Rabbit Network. 

When Carly is not volunteering with HRN, she is probably spending time with her husband, 8 year old chihuahua or practicing agility with her 4 year old adopted house rabbit.
