I can, but it is a full-time job. I do it because the dogs enjoy it and also because the cost of owning an indoor dog is way cheaper than owning one in a home. In the past two months I have worked for a company that installs dog condos and the owner has been very busy. There are some great people doing good work but it is a full-time job. There are days that it is not work because he has to work with a bunch of dogs, too.
I am a dog lover and I have been doing my day job of raising my four-legged friends (I’m a veterinarian) since 1977 and I have had my share of dogs in real life as well. I have no desire to leave this job.
How often have you encountered hostility in your work?
I have had some issues but there were people on the other side of the fence when I was in the dog condo. I don’t know what it is so I don’t know much to say, other than when I am out walking dogs in the dog condo, I am always careful. It is a private facility that is not open to the general public. The owners are always nice and I have had the opportunity to help out other people who use the dog condo. I have never been on the receiving end of that type of behavior, but one dog died and there were also issues of litter boxes, food, and cleaning in the condo. There were also some issues in 2008 when a woman brought her baby into the dog condo and the woman and her husband were arguing. Then the husband came in the dog condo and beat up the baby. I also have a lot of dogs. I do not know what it is about dog owners that causes that animosity, but I believe that it occurs because of our dog-centric culture.
How many dogs do you have now? When did you last see your dogs?
I have one black and two gray German shepherds.
Have your dogs been involved in any serious incidents at your dog condos?
Yes. When we bought our condo in 1993, there were some problems, with my dogs. My dogs got loose and they ran the block. I used to lock the doors and let them out when no one was there. I did not lock my dogs outside until one died. When we moved into our condo in 2009 (and our neighbor got one of my dogs which had run the block for awhile), the new neighbors did not
