We met while we worked at St. Agatha’s Home in Nanuet, N.Y. We managed a group residence for abused, dependent and neglected teenaged girls. We enjoyed the creative challenges of providing effective care in a “24/7” environment.
We left St. Agatha’s to find “real jobs” and begin a family, only to discover that we missed working together. So in 1990, when the opportunity arose to become the fourth owners of Brookline Kennels, we decided to give it a go. Fortunately, the previous owners had a very talented staff, who gave us valuable on the job training. A number of veterinarians were very generous with their expert guidance as well.
We applied the observational skills we had developed at St. Agatha’s to the controlled environment of the kennel. During our first few years we identified several distinct behavior patterns, and refined our methods of responding to each. Over the course of time it became clear to us that we were not properly equipped to respond to a couple of types of canine behavior. Consequently we no longer try to provide care for dogs that are unusually noisy, nasty, or dirty.
