Improving Lives

Socialized and happy dogs are very important to us here at Oak Hill Genetics. Each dog is played with regularly and one of the people that is integral to our team is Philip. One of the things that is important in socializing is starting the interaction properly at a young age. This is what Philip does. Philip is a young man that has Down Syndrome. Philip loves his job playing with puppies. One of the things he struggles with is grasping the passage of time. Instead of watching the clock, Philip has a sand timer that he follows to know how long he should play with each puppy. When the sand timer runs out Philip selects another puppy and rubs its belly and holds it close until the timer is up again. He will do this for hours on end if we allow him. We are very happy to have Philip on our team and see the joy and fulfillment it brings to his life! Each person has a gift and Philip has a special connection with animals.
