This month we would like to introduce one of our long term staff members, Kate.
Kate has been working for us at the Pet Resort for over 8 years starting out as a casual staff member, now Kate is one of our Senior Kennel Attendants and more recently Kate also does our professional grooming and is studying grooming at Box Hill TAFE.
Kate has obtained her Certificate ii & iii in Animal Studies and has many years experience in animal care due to her work with us at the resort but also taking care of her own menagerie at home which consists of, 3 dogs (a staffy, a Jack Russell & a Chihuahua), a bird, goats, chickens and her mischievous ferrets!!
You will usually find Kate on the floor in the play yard when visiting the pet resort as she just loves to get down and play with the dogs and get messy!! Kate has a playful nature and she is a favourite with our furry guests.
In her spare time Kate loves to spend time in the great outdoors, her love of camping, 4WDriving and photography take her to some lovely picturesque locations around Victoria and beyond.
We asked Kate why she loves working at Yarra Valley Pet Resort: “working at the resort is like working with a big family, we are like a family unit, we have a lot of laughs and I love getting to know the pets that come in very regularly and of course working outdoors in the sun”
Make sure you say Hi to Kate next time you are in. We love having Kate working here at the resort and we hope she spends many more years with us. Why not book your dog in to see Kate for their next groom? Just send us a message here.
