Q: What is it like working as a Dog Kennel Assistant?

Dog Kennel Assistant in Loganville:
"You Have To Love It."
Pros: I enjoy getting to know all the animals and their personality. Getting to help heal them and make the animals better.
Cons: The euthanasia is the worst part of the job, getting attached to a dog-- Then watching it cross. Not to mention the diarrhea, pee, throw up-- having to clean up all the body fluid is never a wonderful task.
