Job openings at Here, Doggy!
We’re currently looking for full-time and part-time handlers.
Please send your resume along with your answers to the following questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
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!
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!
