What is your favorite thing about working at the Resort? I love seeing the connection between the owners and their pets, and the challenge of going above and beyond the owners expectations for their pets care. I also love getting to work up front, and behind the scenes. It gives me an opportunity to get familiar with each client and the chance to personally care for their pet.
