Doggie Fun and Fitness
How long have you worked here? Going on 4 yrs here. Monday – Friday I’m on the floor supervising the dogs at Doggie Fun & Fitness. 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.
1.)How long have you worked here?
I have worked here going on 8 months
2.) Why did you choose to work here?
I chose to work here to get an early start for my career when I’m older and gain field experience and learn more about dogs and handling. I’m currently a junior in the Veterinary Science program at Norfolk Aggie.
3.) What did you expect it to be like?
I expected it to be very different and out of my comfort zone, something that i have never encountered before
4.) What has surprised you the most?
What surprised me the most was being myself how far I have come and how much I learned since i first started here.
5.) What do you like best about your job?
What i like best are the breeds of dogs that i get to work with and socialize with and my team of co-workers are absolutely amazing! I couldn’t think of anyone else that I would rather work with! I appreciate them all so much
6.) What do you like least?
What i like least is honestly nothing. Other than when a dog has diarrhea😜
