Maybe ask yourself if what you want right now (K9 job) is worth giving up what you want most (head of your family business). Not saying that it's an either/or, but something to think about. It sounds like a fun job, but will you be doing it the next 20 years or is this just something you want to try your hand at?
Could you go to part time at your current job and also work at the kennel?
