Behind the Scenes — Meet Gary Kanz Jr.
Gary has been working at Fort Fido for almost two years now and has long since proven himself to be a valuable addition to the Fort. Gary’s quiet confidence has a calming effect on the pack and we sometimes call him “The Dog Whisperer” and love it when he works his magic on an unruly day.
Gary’s other skills have also come in handy for us, namely his skill with computers. His assistance in the office is much appreciated. Gary even has (at 17!) his own web design business on the side. You can check it out at www.garyswebdesign.com.
Before Gary came to work for us, his sister Megan was employed here. When she left to pursue her passion for training horses, she suggested that we hire her younger brother, a then 16-year-old Gary, to replace her. Since then, Gary has been doing a stellar job here. Fortunately, he and Megan have three more younger siblings, so we might have a few more years of Kanz’s up and coming.
