What is it like working as a Dog Kennel Attendant?

Dog Kennel Attendant in Vancouver:
"Fast paced, can be hectic and stressful but overall great."
Pros: The people I work with are hard working and care about the dogs and keeping things clean and safe. The owner works us hard but also gives us perks like food, coffee, cold weather clothing/boots etc. I like interacting with all the different sizes, breeds and temperaments. Its nice to see dogs on a regular basis.
Cons: It can get crazy and sometimes the dogs aren't the best trained. The rest is really good.
