This “job” is a blessing and a curse. The blessings are obvious, curse? How is it a curse? Curse might sound a bit much, but it’s true! The first point is most definitely the hardest to deal with. Making a connection with a pup and their owners and then not having it after 3 months, 6 months or however long is never easy. The physical toll it takes on the body (bumps, bruises, scratches, bites, etc) is also something I wish I could avoid, it is quite thrilling though. The last obvious thing, is lack of “me time.” I feel like this one is felt more by people around me then myself actually. Reason being, its brought up in conversation by others more so than I actually contemplate it. I really don’t ever want to “escape”, really. However, for integrity purposes, I’ll explain. Vacation time, Nope! I not only train pups, but care for them too. So leaving town for the holidays to see fam is almost always a definitive big fat NO. There are probably a bunch of other things, I’m almost sure, but that would be nitpicking and that isn’t what this post is about. I’m writing this in hopes that you all understand that every JOB or CAREER has it’s “flaws” and the key to loving what you do even with those flaws, is to embrace them all. Learn to love the curse, so the blessings are unparalleled. 🤙🏽 #blessed
Ps. Shout out to my boy Matt _dog_controller you’re a blessing bro.
