Slater’s favorite dog to groom is a Samoyed, which has a double coat of hair. “It makes a ginormous mess. I leave here covered in white hair.” However, the job is “very rewarding.”

Slater has been sent to the emergency room a few times due to dog bites. “Getting bitten is never fun,” she says, but “you can’t blame the dog. They are still dogs.”

Slater bought a corgi — her favorite breed — for her first dog. But she’s taken to adopting since. “I will always adopt an older dog, because they deserve a life.”
