DESCRIPTION OF WORK/ACTIVITIES DONE:
I was helping to train various working dogs such as search and rescue dogs, police dogs, diabetic alert dogs, medical alert dogs, etc. The best part was pretending to be a person stuck in a collapsed building and having dogs pull me out!
HOW MANY HOURS OF WORK DID YOU DO PER WEEK? 24
I'd definitely recommend taking on an internship that has nothing to do with what you might want to do as a profession later on. Use this time to learn about something completely new but really interesting!
