I currently own 2 dogs. One of them is Lab/Blue Heeler, German Shepherd/ Wolf X and other one is Chocolate Lab/Pit mix. Even though this is my first professional job in canine world, I have dogs in my home for my entire life so, and this type of environment is nothing new to me. My favorite part about working at BowWow Fun Towne is there interaction with the dogs. I love that I’ve been able to grow connections with the dogs in day care to the point that they recognize and trust me. I also like building a relationship with the newcomer. I am a drummer at heart but I’m still working on how to turn my passion into a profession without winning the lottery of being in a successful band. My dogs have taught be patience, trust and the value of unconditional love. I can honestly say that I have healthier friendships with my dogs than I have with some of my human friends. My goal is to be a professional drummer while being financial and economically secured.
