Vocational Services had a wonderful visitor today! Katelynn Norgaard was so kind to come in and visit with all of us about her career with Canine Country Club. Katelynn is a Certified Dog Trainer and an expert groomer. She talked to everyone about how she got started in this field, what her hours are like, what kind of training was needed, what she loves most about her job, and what are the most important qualities a person should have when pursuing this kind of career. And she did great at answering our many questions! The best part was when Katelynn brought in her own pup Lilyia to visit with everyone. We all practiced a calm approach, that Katelynn said should be used with all dogs. Everyone loved her and she did not mind the treats, pats, and belly rubs!

We all learned so much and there might even be some budding animal groomers in the group we had today! Thanks to Katelynn for sharing her wealth of knowledge with us!
