Kelowna’s Eldorado and Manteo resorts new director of pet relations is paid in treats and scritches, but he naps on the job.
Winston the yellow lab is a very good boy who is working hard to ensure that pets staying at the lakeside resorts have a great time.
The golden boy moved from Victoria earlier this year with his mom Jessica Pearce, who is the general manager of the resorts.
He had been working at the Empress Hotel in Victoria since 2018 before moving to Kelowna.
As a pup, Winston was training to be a service dog, but he made the switch to hospitality after learning that the perks were better in the hotel industry.
Winston said that the biggest challenge that he has had to overcome since moving to Kelowna is learning to be brave when walking on the Manteo resort’s new floating docks. He loves the treats and the social time associated with his job and is happiest when making guests feel comfortable.
