I love my job. I not only get the opportunity to work with passionate people each day at Oxbow, but we all have the distinct honor of serving customers who share our passion, and then some. Being in the pet industry provides a unique lens into the very special relationship between pet and owner. We refer to this relationship as the “human animal bond” and I learned years ago about how powerful (and universal) it truly is.
What every pet owner understands and cherishes is the fact that the love of pets is pure. Unlike people, animals don’t form judgements. They love us unconditionally and forgive our imperfections. They provide us affection, calming, healing, humor, and love, asking for only basic care in return. Our customers understand how amazing this bond is, and they go above and beyond when it comes to caring for their pets. The love of our customers for their pets is remarkable and inspiring. For us, it’s an inspiration to do our jobs the best we can, each and every day. Like I said, I love my job.
