In honor of Pet Sitters Week, we did a little Q&A with our attendants! Here is what they had to say!
Q: What’s your favorite thing about working at Dogwood Cottage
A from Siobhan: My fave thing about working at Dogwood so far has been meeting all the dogs and clients and getting to see so many familiar faces everyday, it’s like I have a whole family of furry friends away from home. I’ve also loved my coworkers and how they share the same love of dogs I have and how much I’m learning from them!
A from Amanda: My dogwood family, two and four-legged. There’s always someone to make me smile!
Q: What’s your favorite activity to do with the dogs?
A from Shannon: I like to walk the dogs! Gives us both exercise and clears our minds!
A from Nicole: My favorite activities to do are the obedience and tricks. Trying to teach them some new stuff and working on what they already know. It’s amazing what some of these dogs can do if you really work with them.
Q: Why did you choose to work with dogs?
A from Siobhan: I’ve known I wanted to work with dogs since I was a kid, they were such a big part of my childhood and I love being around them and all the different personalities. There is so much to learn about dogs and I am enjoying every bit of it. I love knowing I can be part of making sure all our furry friends have a fun/relaxing day until they go home to their families.
A from Tammy: I’ve always had the heart for animals since birth I believe. I wouldn’t know a world without them. It is the job for me!
