We’re proud to develop our team in order to ensure fantastic dog daycare experiences for your dog.
With the Club for 18 months now, Luke has taken on the role of Assistant Manager.
Luke loves being back with the dogs, playing, engaging and matching up playpartners appropriately. Monitoring the dynamics of the group…or pack…as a whole.
He shared that it’s a continual energy change as the clientele base changes – even on a daily basis.
Dogs come in and go out regularly so monitoring and helping dogs adjust to the play area is really satisfying, even the dogs who are new to dog daycare and playdates.
He’s always had dogs while growing up, but sadly, the apartment where he lives doesn’t accept pets. So, Luke decided to follow his passion for animals and to be around them, care for them, play with them full time, with us.
Spotting the cues
Luke shares that it’s by careful observance of subtle cues of the dogs in the play area that he’s been able to quickly absorb meanings and develop an intuitive sense about when to interrupt or redirect a behavior.
Dogs repeat behaviors and it’s important from a safety-standpoint to simply watch for the repeated actions that may take the energy in the room too high.
We work to keep the energy in the play areas manageable, so all of the dogs are safe, number one, and also engaged, relaxed, social and having fun.
Interest and care built in
Did you know that some staff members have vet tech training? Others have attended classes on pet First Aid as well.
We’re also fully-stocked with First Aid equipment.
It’s incredibly valuable to us to have staff members who are so interested in dogs that they’ve pursued additional instruction or have had previous experience in a related industry. We’re so proud of them.
Plus, now having Luke taking the role of Assistant Manager, all the dogs will receive improved oversite to making sure all members are well cared for.
Can’t wait to see you again at the Club!
