Job openings at Here, Doggy!

Dog Handler

We’re currently looking for full-time and part-time handlers.

To apply:
Please send your resume along with your answers to the following questions to andy@heredoggydaycare.com.

1. Why do you want to be a dog handler?
2. What do you think makes someone a good pack leader?
3. What dog behaviors are you curious in learning more about?

Here's what you'll do:

  • Love the dogs and keep them safe (which requires a strong, pack-leader attitude)

  • Intervene when play gets too rough

  • Time dogs out for misbehavior (like excessive barking, humping, annoying other dogs...)

  • Help break up fights if they happen (though we do our best to prevent them!)

  • Play with dogs and offer snuggles

  • Keep the place clean (sweeping, mopping floors, dusting, scrubbing walls, removing trash and cleaning up LOTS of poop)

Here's what we're looking for:

  • Reliability is HUGE! We need people who are punctual and want to be here. (We need you here to keep the dogs safe!)

  • Flexibility and the ability to roll with the punches

  • Working with dogs is physical, so be ready to be on your feet

  • Not a lot of heavy lifting, but there is some (buckets of water etc.)

**Experience is not required as long as you're willing to learn!**

Here are the perks:

  • Dogs! Lots of dogs!

  • On-the-job training

  • Paid lunch breaks

  • Free daycare/boarding for your dog once you pass the probationary period (and your dog passes a temperament evaluation)

  • Bonuses for going above and beyond

  • Room for advancement

  • Nice people without drama

  • We're a mom and pop operation and always working to improve the experience for the dogs, the customers, and the employees. Ideas are welcome!
