  • Engaging in enrichment and play activities with the dogs

Job in More Detail

As the successful applicant you will be working with a dozen or more dogs of all sizes, ages, and breeds helping to develop their social interaction skills as well as providing mental and physical stimulation. Naturally, this can be a lot of energy and chaos to manage! Employees that love this job do not mind getting dirty on occasion, and can handle working with many excited and energetic dogs at once! Sometimes happy dogs play too hard, and quarrels must be watched and potentially broken up by our attentive staff. You will be integral in sending dogs home tired and happy. Cleaning up and basic paperwork are also part of the daily rotation.

Qualifications and Skills

Enthusiasm for dogs and basic computer skills will be needed. Experience in vet clinics, dog daycares, or animal shelters are a plus, but not required. Dog training experience is a big plus!

About Us

At Always Home Pet Services, we believe dogs are man’s best friends and interactions with dogs should enhance the human-canine bond. This philosophy is reflected in the safe, stimulating, nurturing, and fun environment provided at our daycare and in the dog-friendly methods used in our training.
