The life of a contractor is an interesting one; you often have quite a niche area of expertise that you are passionate about and excel at, and you travel far and wide to help people wherever you are needed. Beats sitting at a desk from 9-5, doesn’t it?

Josephsen Hardwood Floor Company has been repairing, installing, and refinishing hardwood floors in southern New Jersey for 3 generations. Fred Jr. will drive around to people’s houses in his van, where he will get to work crafting top quality floors and stairfaces at reasonable prices. But while you might be happy to have Fred come over and rip up your floors, creating clouds of dust with his shrill, noisy sander, what do the canine inhabitants think about this intrusion? I would bet that they are not impressed, and that’s putting it kindly.

Luckily, Fred understands and goes out of his way to show his appreciation for his doggy ‘helpers.’ Obviously forming a good relationship with the pups whose homes he has so rudely invaded, he started making them his ’employees of the week,’ a regular doggo treat for his Facebook followers. It’s fair to say that this has been a hit, with people leaving reviews like: “I love the dog pictures!! I’d hire this company just because of the dogs!!

I’m sure you absolutely do top quality work! Anyone who does something so wonderful as to feature customers loved pets has to be amazing in character and quality. Best of luck with more successful business and most of all PLEASE never stop posting your “employee’s of the week”….. If you lived near us, we would certainly use you when new floors are needed and we have 5 dogs and 6 turtles you could “feature”…..LOL….. I’ll be following…for the amazing photos…Our country needs more people like you, who love and respect pets.”

Scroll down to check out some of Fred’s ’employees of the week’ for yourself, and let us know what you think in the comments!

We feel like it has been fureverrrrr (get it?) since we have had an Employee of the Week! We just had a long streak of working in unoccupied or no pet homes. Today, the streak is broken!

We’ve been working on a big job with no pets. However, we wanted to share a little overdue doggo happiness. This is Isla, our own favorite girl. She was rescued from the streets of Puerto Rico. All the people, pets, and satos, of that beautiful island, are in our thoughts and prayers today.

Meet Buster, our current Employee of the Week. The word must be out about these photos. Every time I pulled out my camera to take his picture, I felt like he began posing. Buster has a camera-shy sidekick named Sparky. I hope to feature him by the end of the week.

Meet Vito, our current Employee of the Week. I’m going to have to call it a “long distance” working relationship since he won’t get too close to me. He’s always sticking his tongue out at me, too. These unions!
