Tabby Grochowalski

Hello, my name is Tabby Grochowalski and let me tell you a little about myself. I am very much an animal lover; I currently have a dog named Buddy, he is a Black Lab and Red Heeler mix. Some days he’s as crazy as a heeler and others he can be calm like a Lab. Aside from Buddy I also own six registered Black Angus cows, just a small herd but plenty of work! I’m often found in the barn on a daily basis washing, brushing, feeding, and clipping our two show heifers for the next show on our schedule. My family and I attend shows every month in the Michigan area and travel to as far away as Georgia! I am currently employed at K9 Academy International as a caretaker for the doggies, my responsibilities include feeding, washing, playing, cleaning up and making sure they are all healthy and having fun during their stay here. I love coming to work and seeing their happy faces, even on days that aren’t going 100% they can change that in a minute. I enjoy watching the trainers work with the dogs, it is a goal to someday some training techniques myself. One of my favorite jobs along with K9 Academy International was working with Ridgeview Hereford farm, where I worked 60 head of calves everyday to help prepare them for sale. When I am not at K9 Academy or working in my barn I am the leader of my own small 4-h club I started last year! Within my club we are dedicated to helping children learn about cattle, leadership, hard work and determination.
