Nathalie’s interest in animal care began with her family’s dog sitting experience. Nathalie’s apartment community didn’t allow dogs, so she was thrilled at the chance to care for her father’s client’s dog at his home. Nathalie loved every minute of feeding and playing with this “borrowed” canine companion, and her experience sparked an interest in an animal care career. When Nathalie’s family finally moved into their own home, Nathalie was thrilled to adopt Nuirka, a black Labrador retriever the family found at an animal shelter. Now that Nathalie had experienced the joys of pet ownership, she was certain that working with animals was the right career for her!
