Maaike Teuling - General Manager
I started working here at the Bergen BARK Inn in June of 2012. I have had a passion for animals since a very young age. I was obsessed with dogs when I was really little, even going as far as memorizing dogs breeds when I was 5 years old. I volunteered at a grooming parlor as a preteen and eventually began working at a veterinarian office right before I graduated high school. Animals have always been my one true passion. I just recently graduated from the University of Colorado Denver and have a Bachelors of Science with a specification in biology. For my own fur babies (and scale baby), I have a cocker spaniel named Simon, a cat named Mr. Kitty, and a creamsicle corn snake named Astrid. I love being around dogs 24/7 and am so thankful for all my furry friends, wonderful coworkers, and wonderful clients at work. I love waking up everyday knowing that I get to work in a job that I truly love.

I have loved animals since before I can remember. I grew up with a Husky, a Lab, and several cats. As I grew older my love for animals grew bigger! I have been working with dogs since I was 17 and have been working at Bergen BARK Inn since October of 2013 and never want to leave! In August of 2014, I adopted a Dutch Shepherd & Mastiff mix named Karbuck. He wasn't very socialized or trained when I rescued him, but has become a well mannered gentleman through my work with him on obedience and training and has taught me many things about behavior and temperament. My family and I also have a Pomeranian, named Pixie, and 3 cats. You know what they say, "if you do what you love, you'll never work a day in your life." It's a great feeling to wake up excited to go to work and make a long lasting bond with every single dog here at Bergen BARK!
I am originally from Erie PA. After living in many places I decided to finally make the move from North Carolina to Colorado to live out my dream of being a ski bum. I grew up around horses and various house pets. Working with dogs came pretty naturally to me and opened up a fascinating world of canine behavior and nutrition. I'm an avid skier, disc golfer, Jeeper, and hiker. I volunteer with Friends of Mount Evans and Lost Creek Wilderness and the Clear Creek Ranger District at Loveland Ski Area. My roommates include a wonderful girlfriend, 2 Newfoundlands, and 2 kitties.

About 5 or 6 years ago I took a year off from my career in the solar industry to spend time with family. A friend told me about a part time position working at a doggy daycare/kennel in Denver and I decided to give it a try while I was feeling out other corporate positions in solar. One week in and I was hooked! I had that ‘click’ moment where I realized that this was the industry that I wanted to explore and spend my life in. For several years I was at the Denver daycare and from there I moved into professional grooming at a privately owned shop in Littleton. I’ve also spent time working at a Vet’s office in Lakewood. Eventually I found my way to Bergen Bark Inn and haven’t looked back since! I’ve been at BBI for about two years now and absolutely love it! I’m currently taking certification courses on Pet Psychology, Pet sitting and walking, Grooming. I’m also enrolled in several basic training and behavior courses as well as the Fear Free Happy Homes program. I am currently writing a book on basic dog grooming I hope to have published within the year, but it’s still a work in progress. Since starting in the pet care industry I’ve had and have multiple certification in pet CPR and first aid and recently completed a certification in Pet Nutrition. I love what I do and plan to keep learning and stay current in the field for a very long time, and I’m so lucky to have a great staff and clients to share the journey with! When I’m not working or studying I spend most of my time on my art and am hoping to set up a gallery show in the future.
