My name is Kylah Buikema and I started hunting even before I could walk. My Dad, Grandpa, and Uncle would take me on hunts when I was little. I started hunting myself when I was 11 and shot my first deer with the bow I still have today. I also have been riding horses since I was 6 and have always had a passion for them. I have a number of jobs but my favorites are working at Pine Hill and teaching horse riding lessons.
How I Came to Know Pine Hill
A family friend who is a customer at Pine Hill recommended that I check out the job opening and it could not have been a better fit for me. I love working with dogs and other animals. I am an animal lover and plan on going to college for a wildlife biology degree.
Treat Them Like My Own
Being able to take care of someone else’s dog is a big responsibility since they are a furry member of the family. I am glad that people trust us at Pine Hill to take care of their dogs when they are away. I work hard at earning and maintaining that trust even though the dogs that come into Pine Hill are not mine. I treat them as if they are and love going through the kennel spending a little time with each one. Petting and talking to them is in a way therapeutic and enjoy making that connection.
If you are a regular at Pine Hill or a new customer looking for a place to board or train your dog this is the number one place I could recommend to anyone. You can leave on your trip or wherever you might be going knowing that your dog is in the best care!
