From practicing nurse to Guest Service Attendant at Second Home Pet Resort, Hilary Anzaldo made the switch in careers after moving to Arizona 10 months ago. "It's my first job working with animals, but I always wanted to work with animals," Hilary said.
In her role as Guest Service Attendant, Hilary mainly works with dogs. She takes them out for potty breaks and playtime and assists with feeding times and working in doggy day care, overseeing interactions with the dogs. She also participates in cuddle sessions, spending time in the cuddle room snuggling up with the dogs.
Hilary has been with Second Home for 8 months and enjoys meeting the dogs and experiencing their different personalities. "It's not like going to work," she said. "It is work, but it's a fun experience and more satisfying when you work with dogs."
Ensuring pet parents about their dog's stay is important. Hilary ensures that all pet parents know their pets are cared for as if they are family. "At Second Home we'll go above and beyond to make a pet's stay comfortable," she said.
"You can have a bad day outside of work or things are not going well, but when you go to work, and a dog's tail starts wagging and they are excited to see you, it just feels really good," Hilary said.
