We take our roles as guardians to your dogs very seriously. Our priorities stay steadfast:
* Be safe
* Play hard
* Have fun
However, we would be remiss if we didn’t also teach one of life’s most important lessons:

Sure, the economy is slowly improving. But things aren’t the way they used to be. Every penny counts. And we figure, since you’ve invested in WOOF as clients, we want to invest in your financial future.
It’s time to put our dogs to work.
Who couldn’t use an extra income? And don’t let these dogs fool you – they are quite capable.
So we brought everyone together and explained the WOOF Dog Training Program. Every dog took an intensive job profile personality test. Sure, there were some eye rolls. And sure, we had to repeat ourselves several times to those who lost focus when a ball flew by.
But overall, we are off to a very promising start.
It is probably not surprising that many of our trainees gravitated toward food and hospitality.

Party Planner, plus Socialite
Stylist to the stars
Other dogs really just wanted a good, old-fashioned trade. They are not afraid of getting a little dirty, getting up a little early, and seemed to respond to wearing uniforms.
Whoops, forgot the hat
Dog Valet Safety Coordinator
Other dogs seemed to really value being a leader. They weren’t afraid to rattle a few cages, be large-and-in-charge. (To be honest, they were a bit power-hungry.)
Jake jumped at the chance to become Human Resources Director. He sat Dog Handler Frankie down for her annual review.
He didn’t mince words
It was pretty intense
Unfortunately, not everyone took their training seriously. Olive, for example, refused to do anything that was too mentally or physically taxing. She stuck to her strongest skill:
Total Office Gossip
Interestingly enough, there was one job that every dog was perfectly suited to do.
Mental Health Counselor
It doesn’t pay that much but the benefits are immense.
