Meet the Northland Design & Build Dogs


image4 As head office dog here at Northland Design and Build, Pepper plays an integral role in the company. With Pepper’s intuitive internal clock we never miss meal time and her regularly scheduled naps remind the team of the importance of an organized and consistent schedule. If you ask Pepper what her favorite part about working at Northland is she’d say, “I just love my people.” Whether it’s meeting new people, such as potential clients, or spending extensive amounts of time with her coworkers, Pepper is happy just to be near you. She’s easy to get along with, reliable, and loyal. She may have a tendency to collect shoes or articles of clothing to nap with, but it’s all done in love. And when you feel that faithful wet nose on you or the wave of a tail wagging you know it’s time for lunch!



Meet Pepper’s sidekick, Olive. The newest little addition to Northland, Olive is still learning the ropes of the company. However, she’s already showing potential for a possible HR representative. Her ability to boost company moral and exceptional people skills are unprecedented. Olive will never hesitate to interrupt a much needed afternoon nap in order to help out a fellow employee. Just one look from the baby Olive is really all it takes to turn a tough Monday around.


IMG_1295Lola, the adopted child of the Northland family, has taken the self-appointed role as the property watch dog. Her protectiveness and loyalty make her a good fit for the unnecessary job, a job she doesn’t take lightly. Unfortunately this means scaring off anyone unknown, including the UPS man delivering us our latest samples, or the men working on the vineyard next door to the Northland offices. (Luckily, they know her bark’s a lot bigger than her bite). Lola’s second job title is company errand dog. From delivering plans to picking up tile or lighting, Lola is on the job! When she’s not working Lola loves to play with her boyfriend Sampson (the Rhodesian neighbor dog from next door), steal Pepper’s toys, or hog attention. She may act like one tough cookie, but once you start scratching that belly it’s game over.
