Response from Joey's R
Dear Stephen -
Thank you for contacting me about your job search. The current economicsituation has hit many people and while I am not an expert in the canine job marketI think it is safe to assume your struggle to find a position is a common tail (punintended). Having said that, you are correct that I am always looking for superior talent towork with. Since you live in the area, have spent many productive hours runningaround my yard and barking at me I know your strengths and quality of character. I'm happy to say that I will do what I can to assist you in your search for gainfulemployment.
The demand in the job market for dogs is a mixed bag. On the one hand there aren'tmany jobs out there for dogs but on the other hand the ones I know about seem to begreat opportunities. Case in point is one position I'm aware of for a Sled Dog (seethe attached job description). As I see it, this is a great position for you. Youlove being outside, you love to run and you love to be near other dogs (Joey's limpis a testament to this) . What could be better that a 15 mile run with 9 other dogsall pulling together? And if I'm not mistaken, I've seen your A fit you with a dogsled harness already so you may already have some experience (should this be on yourresume?). You would be feed very well. You must be wondering if you would be the Lead Dog. From what I'm told every dog is given the opportunity to attain Lead Dog status but it does require the right amountof experience and training. This is great since I know you are goal-oriented. Itgives you something to aspire to. Goals are important.
I look forward to hearing what you think.
