Meet the Team
Cherrie Cindric, DPM, FACFAS, Owner-operator
Cherrie is the owner of Dogtopia of Greensburg, and began her journey of bringing this phenomenal franchise to Greensburg in 2019. While in Phoenix on a business conference, she discovered Dogtopia in almost every community. As an avid dog lover, she entered one of the stores and was impressed; it was unlike anything she had ever seen. Fresh, clean, and trendy, this daycare model also focused on safety, and has studies of veterinarians, canine behaviorists and environmental biologists build into its every protocol. As a lover of science and dogs, it was love at first sight for Cherrie.
However, Cherrie currently is a busy clinician in the Greensburg area. She owns and operates a full time independent podiatry practice with her husband Todd, with locations in Irwin and Greensburg. With an interest in business, she began discussing this opportunity with her buddy Katie Fritsch. And well, friends, the rest is history! The idea for Dogtopia of Greensburg was born.
Two years and a pandemic later, Cherrie is proud of the Dogtopia brand and what it brings to the area. She will be hands on working in the business two days per week, while still working a full time schedule at her medical practice to meet the needs of her patients. Cherrie is sure that she could not make this work without her fantastic GM by her side, ensuring smooth operations every day.
While not working, Cherrie enjoys fitness and triathlon, snuggling with her dogs, reading and travel.
Katie Fritsch, General Manager
As our General Manager, Katie is focused on all things Dogtopia. She has been involved since the inception of this idea, because she is a firm believer in the benefits of dog daycare. Just get her talking about Dogtopia and you will see! As a graduate of Seton Hill University, Katie has worked the last 10 years in health care and was ready for a change. Working with dogs is always something that has been a passion of hers, as she has been a foster parent over the years for dogs, and finds the most joy when her dogs, Cleo and Callie, are happy. Katie has completed 4 weeks of intensive Dogtopia training, and can answer any question relating to Dogtopia! She is always willing to listen and is ready to welcome you and your pup to become a Dogtopian!
Katie is also involved in the local community, volunteering her time with several local organizations. Katie was recently named Member of the Year for 2021 of the Rotary Club of Greensburg, and has been recognized by the Boy Scouts of America for her dedication to volunteering. We are so lucky to have her!
While not working, you can find Katie enjoying long walks with her dogs around Seton Hill, hiking, biking, hanging out with friends, or making new friends.
