Jennifer's Interview -
Whats your favorite training game to play with the dogs?
"One game in particular that I like to do is "Go Find It". I'll throw a bunch of treats on the floor and tell the dogs to "Go find it?". it is fun watching them try to sniff where the treats landed. A lot of times the dogs miss some of the treats. I also like to teach the dogs how to spin. Some are able to get it faster than others"
How do people react when you tell them you work at a doggy daycare?
"When I tell someone that I work at a doggy daycare, almost every time they say "Oh how fun!". I sometimes feel like they are envious of what I do for a living"
