Meet the Staff: Quiet Dog Daycare Jade

How long have you worked here?

I’ll have worked here a year in January. I work as the office manager and I also take in dogs at drop off in the morning. I also am part of the Quiet Dog Daycare team & Last Hope volunteer.

Why did you choose to work here?

Getting a job here was actually a happy accident. I had been working as a kennel attendant at another facility and noticed that there was very little structure when it came to behaviors, training, leash handling, etc. My dogs went to daycare here already and one of them did training a few years back so I reached out to Laurie in hopes to learn some more training skills and she offered me a job!

What did you expect it to be like?

I expected to gain a ton of knowledge about dog behavior and interaction and I have done just that! I’m much more confident handling dogs of all temperaments, even my own!

What has surprised you the most?

I was surprised with how much I thought I knew and how much I really didn’t. I didn’t think socialization was as vital as it really is. But I’m pretty sure I learn something new that surprises me every day.

What do you like best about your job? I love it all but I look forward to seeing dogs’ progress here. Dogs that come for training and leave with confident owners. Even dogs that come for daycare who start off nervous, not knowing how to play and now get dropped off so happy to be here 🙂

What do you like least? It’s really hard to see a dog that does so well here, go home and regress. Knowing what I know now, owning a  dog takes consistent work and effort!

THE QUIET DOG DAYCARE WORKSHOP UNLEASHED IN JACKSONVILLE FLORIDA

International Association of Canine Professionals Advanced Certified Dog Trainer & Professional Dog Trainer Instructor, Laurie Wagner Leads Workshop for Dog Care Professionals at Happy Hounds Dog Resort

KINGSTON, MA-Professional dog trainer and founder of the Quiet Dog Daycare Workshop, Laurie Wagner, will lead a two-day workshop on Saturday January 14th and Sunday January 15th, from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM each day at Happy Hounds Dog Resorts, 4603 Shirley Ave, in Jacksonville, Florida. The Quiet Dog Daycare workshop teaches dog professionals calming techniques that help hyperactive dogs to soften, and nervous dogs to relax among other dogs.

Laurie Wagner, owner of Doggie Fun & Fitness in Kingston Massachusetts and member of the International Association of Canine Professionals has been training dogs for over 16 years using calm techniques. “Dog daycares don’t need to be loud. Loud noises make dogs more tense,” declares Wagner. “They make dogs bark, jump, hump other dogs, and mark territory. They’re not happy.” In just two days the Quiet Dog Daycare Workshop teaches the art of socialization, to help dog daycares help more dogs. Doggie Daycares have a reputation for being loud, and the Quiet Dog Daycare Workshop’s goal is to help daycares transform into quiet and happy places by helping dogs relax and soften. A promotional video describing this techniques is on YouTube at: https://youtu.be/5eBV07CX6XE
