Meet the Staff- Lisa Sharland – of Doggie Fun & Fitness
How long have you worked here? Going on 4 yrs here. Monday – Friday I’m on the floor supervising the dogs. On Saturdays I assist w/ training classes. I also help on the road with the Quiet Dog Daycare workshop.
Why did you choose to work here? Typical answer- simply love animals.
What did you expect it to be like? Can’t say i had any clear expectations of what the work would be like, came from a CNA job, thought i was just transferring caring for humans to caring for canines.
What has surprised you the most? Puppies are hard!! And do not stop moving!! And do not stop piddling!! It is a lot more physical job than most people would guess.
What do you like best about your job? Best thing is seeing the shy/nervous dogs come out of their shells and live without stressing.
What do you like least? Worst thing is once in a great while seeing those dogs that can’t just be comfortable around their own kind. It is definitely a rare occurrence, but heart breaks for them.
