Throughout my life my family has had many dogs that we took care of. I attended dog training classes for two separate dogs, as well as dog sit a family friend’s dog over a summer as well as my brother’s puppy when he was on vacation. I brush and bathe my own dog regularly and take her for walk as often as possible. When I was younger, my family worked together taking care of a pit bull and her litter of puppies as a foster family. Currently I do volunteer work at my local animal shelter taking care of the animals there, as well as shadowing the shelter’s vet tech, as I hope to learn this trade myself since I am attending online college to become one. My love for animals inspires me to work with them any way I can, which is why I am attending college in the first place.
