Hi – I’m Alex!
Before I formally start this blog, I would like to make it clear that I am not a vet, a trainer, a behaviorist, or a nutritionist.
I have been working with animals since I was a kid, starting with rescues and later working in the companion animal industry. I have always had dogs in my life, whether it be family pets, fosters, or now my very own furbaby. Life is nothing without them. I have learned everything I know through living with dogs, working with dogs, from my co-volunteers, co-workers and clients. I have spent most of my free time researching holistic animal care and practicing what I preach to my clients.
Global Pet Foods is the fifth pet food store I have worked at, and there are a few reasons I have been sticking to this industry:
- First is to provide great customer service and advice somewhere where animals are NOT sold.
- Second is to have an impact on the lives of many animals. Simple comments and suggestions could make the difference between a client giving up on their pet( this will be explained in a later post).
- Finally, third is because even though there are some really crappy, horrible pet owners out there, I get to meet the amazing ones too. The ones who will never give up, the ones who will find the healthiest products, spend the time training, working, and playing with their pets. I learn the most from my clients. They share stories and experiences that you can’t always read in books. They ask me questions I have not thought of, which opens to door to doing more research until I have found an answer.
This blog will be about sharing a lot of my clients frequently asked questions, strangest questions, and some tid bits about adventuring into the world of dog agility.
