The Gift Exchange

Hi there! Pet Gal Jen here. I have been with the company since July of 2015 and can honestly say, what a life change! Working with animals every day is a real blessing and I am extremely thankful for this experience. Recently, I was asked to write up a few things for Pet Gal. As with most things in my life, I am willing to take on new challenges. The last three years of my life were spent as the GM of a local restaurant. We had a “managers log” that was filled out each shift. As the GM, I had the ability to modify this log to include or not include whatever categories my little heart desired. I customized them for our management team to focus on strengths and weaknesses each shift. My managers dreaded my logs because they were filled with so much of everything. Attention to detail!!! Thoroughness has never been my weakness. I liked to think of them as entertaining in many ways. So, we shall try that here.

As a Pet Gal, our primary task is taking care of animals while their owners are away. We all have our regular clients that we visit on a daily or weekly basis. We know them, they know us (the dogs and cats). We know their behavioral ins and outs, when something is wrong, or when they are in an exceptionally good mood. One of the cutest things is when the owners are home; the dogs are usually pretty fussy about going for their walks. They do not want to leave their owners. Quite an amazing sign of loyalty.

Does Your Dog Take You For A Walk?

The Easy Walk Harness Review

The claim. Does your dog take you for a walk? Have aching arms? Well look no further, the Easy Walk® Harness by PetSafe will turn struggle and a frustration into an enjoyable walk. The difference between this harness and others is the Easy Walk has a front chest attachment for a leash. Which helps you steer your dog to the side making it is easier to redirect his attention toward you. A regular harness is designed to pull against the full body weight of your dog by lifting them in efforts to prevent pulling. The Easy Walk’s chest strap rests across your dog chest applying a gentle pressure under their arms, not on the throat, so there is no chocking. The Easy Walk let’s you take the lead and enjoy the freedom of a stress-free walk.
