Success Story: Dee-Tails Dream Job

Success Story

Dee-Tails was the perfect spot for jobseeker Alahna. She loves dogs and Dee-Tails is a full time, cage-free dog daycare, grooming and boarding business. They have a large outside fenced in play yard and an inside playroom as well. Both were designed specifically for the safety and comfort of the dogs. Dee-Tails is owned by Bridgett Dee and she has several employees. The sight was targeted for a work experience opportunity which worked out well since they were also looking to possibly hire new staff.
