Q: What made you apply for this this job?

A:   I have always loved being around and working with dogs so when I saw that The Dog Den was hiring I jumped on the opportunity to learn more about dog training while also getting to be around animals that I love! 

Q: What is your favorite part of daycare?

A:  Getting to snuggle with all the wonderful dogs! 

Q: What is your favorite part of training?

A:   Seeing how each individual dog parent communicates with their dog and watching their bond grow as each member of the team learns more! 

Q: Favorite thing about your team?

A: How positive and welcoming everyone is! And how we all share a love for dogs! 

Q: Favorite thing about the clients?

A:  Learning more about them and getting to see how each individual client and their dog’s personalities compliment each other! They really do say that people’s dogs represent them and I love getting to see that firsthand!

Q: Favorite thing about the dogs?

Q: Something you’d never guess I’d do/peg me for

Q: Which breed did you grow up with? 

A: My family had a large mix of dog breeds. We’ve had multiple Rottweilers, a German Shepherd, a Portuguese Water Dog, and a Coton de Tulear. My extended family has always had Poodles though so I’ve spent a lot of time with them as well! The dog I currently have now is actually my first mixed breed. I love getting to see how the personalities of each breed I suspect he is come out in different ways! 

Q: Tell us about the pets that you live with now?

A:  I have a 1-and-a-half-year-old Golden Retriever Husky mix named Arlo. He is extremely goofy and loves attention! He loves snuggling, going on hikes, and playing with his dog friends or by himself. I also have a 4-year-old Ragdoll cat named Finnegan. He is extremely spicey! He loves rummaging and finding new places to explore but also loves to cuddle (especially in the morning).
