What does your daily routine look like?
My favourite thing about my role is definitely the variation of stuff I do. It keeps me motivated because every day there’s a new challenge. I also love all the dogs, and being able to just spent a couple minutes with them having a cuddle and a few kisses. My colleagues are also amazing which keeps me motivated.
What does your daily routine look like?
I usually arrive last to the farm which means the dogs are ready to go out when I get in, so I start my days off by running the dogs on the paddock. After that, I get my animal care jobs done, which could be jet washing, or cleaning some of the accommodation like the kitchen area or front of house. Once I’ve done this, there's an array of stuff to do. This may include extra jobs like ear cleaning, teeth brushing and health checks. In between some of this, I might put a wash on if it’s my day to do it. Obviously, there’s a couple of coffees between this.
Once all of my animal care jobs are done, I move on to some training. This could be training some of the pet dogs to make sure they’re getting enough mental stimulation or taking some of the assistance dogs in training on public access trips with Charlie. I enjoy having the variety in my days with each day being different.
Tell us about a time a dog made you smile?
They make me smile all the time, but if I had to pick just once then it’d have to be when I was having a pretty tough time and I sat on the kitchen floor with all the dogs and they piled on me, it instantly cheered me up!
