I have over 30yrs.of personal experience in training dogs. I have a great understanding of their body language and know how to handle any issue. I have always had a great respect for animals in general and since the age of 30yrs. I have always had a pack of dogs in my home.
I bathed them, gave haircuts, trimmed nails & clean ears, administered medication ( in one case on a vets instruction injected fluids into one of my dogs for dehydration.
I also clean out their kennel and walk them daily..
I would love to have the opportunity to work with animals whether its cleaning stalls or helping with rescues
Background Information

Growing up on a farm caring for animals became natural to me. On the farm we had goats, cows, rabbits, ducks & chickens etc it was my job to feed them in the morning .

We also had alot of farm dogs. I've always had a natural connection to dogs in particular. Now as an adult I have always owned more than one dog & in 1994 to 2008 I had a total of 6 dogs (shep/lab mix and staffordshire bull terriers. Unfortunately because they were very close in age they all passed away within 3 monthes of one another. They had all lived to be 13 - 14 yrs. In 2009 I adopted 3 dogs from the spca ..a king shepherd, a shepherd/dob mix & a pitbull that no one wanted..This year I adopted a boxer/dalmation mix from the spca in Orillia. When my mother passed away in 2011 I adopted her 2 toy poodles.
