Applicants must have a flexible schedule and are required to work both weekends and/or holidays (opening shifts start at 7am and closing shifts end at 7:00pm)
Working at a Doggie Daycare is a learned job. You will not be expected to be able to perform any of the following job duties without first going through a training period. In addition, we are all always learning from each other and from the dogs, and experiencing daycare first-hand is the best way to learn dog behavior and to become comfortable with acceptable types of play. You will never be asked or expected to do anything for which you are not fully trained and comfortable.
As a part of our team here at Doggie VIP, you will be responsible for supervising play in our busy doggie daycare service. Much of the job involves monitoring play while being aware of various play styles and ensuring that all dogs are safe, stress-free, and having fun. You will also be expected to help maintain a clean play space for the dogs by watching for, picking up, and properly disposing of any waste. You will also help dispense meals for the dogs during your shift, and may be asked to administer medications.
We are a company that empowers team work and therefore everyone is expected to help with other tasks when needed and support team members. Other things which you will be asked to help with include kennel cleaning, taking boarding dogs outside, feeding breakfasts and/or suppers to boarding dogs, bathing dogs, pick up and drop off of the dogs, and strictly follow the cleaning process for closing time.
Daycare is an interactive play environment and carries some inherent risks, both to the dogs and to the staff. Our #1 priority here is safety, and the daycare team plays an integral role in keeping everyone free from harm. You will be expected to be able to recognize a potential problem before it escalates, and to know how to quickly and carefully break up any situation. Although fights in the daycare yard are rare, if one does happen you will be expected to involve yourself without hesitation.
