LOVE WORKING WITH DOGS?? JOIN THE DD TEAM
We are always looking for that "special someone" to be a part of our pack. Applicants must be sincere dog lovers, who can deal with hard work, are highly dependable and don't mind getting dirty. Our Playgroup Leaders work directly with the dogs, supervising play groups. Staff are actively engaged with the dogs, working on obedience commands, managing group energy level, and monitoring all dog activities. Other duties may include feeding meals, washing dishes, some dog bathing, general cleaning and maintenance. This is an enjoyable job with dogs but staff are not just here to "play with dogs". We ACTIVELY monitor play and continuously practice commands with the dogs. Be ready for lots of barking, poop, dog hair and a lot of physical work. Also be ready to have fun, make friends and enjoy coming to work.
Must love dogs!!! If you're not crazy about the pooches, you won't like this job. This is not a job for everyone. Working with dogs can be (at times) exhausting, infuriating, disgusting and overwhelming. If you really love dogs though, it can also be exciting, amusing, and overall very rewarding. Applicants should be comfortable handling all types of dogs in a humane manner. Previous dog handling experience (Vet Tech, Grooming, Kennel) is a big plus. You should be able to lift 50 lbs. and expect to be physically active for your entire shift. You should be able to work equally well either independently or as a team. Along with a strong work ethic and physical stamina, you must be responsible, honest, patient, prompt and very dependable. You must possess good written and verbal communication skills, a sense of humor and most importantly, a positive attitude. MUST BE ABLE TO WORK SOME WEEKENDS, HOLIDAYS AND OCCASIONAL OVERNIGHTS. We're looking for people that want to work with dogs, not people who think working with dogs could be cool. If you think you're the right person, we look forward to meeting you.
