We are a full-service dog care facility with boarding, grooming, training, and daycare services.

With plenty of safe and large play spaces, excellent sanitation, and an amazing team, our goal is to keep each pet happy and healthy. The animals in our care aren't confined to kennels and are provided round-the-clock service. We also offer transportation services, which include both picking up and dropping off customers' pets. We love our job and enjoy working with our clients every day!

One of the reasons our clients love us is because of our team. They work hard and keep each dog happy and safe. We respect our team and believe that anyone who wants to work in this field can learn.

This is a full-time position with 2 available shifts. The morning shift is 5:45 AM - 1:45 PM and the afternoon shift is 1:15 PM - 9:15 PM. Both shifts include rotating weekends.

As an Entry-Level Pet Care Assistant, you help us provide the positive reinforcement training and quality care that we are well-known for. As an entry-level employee, you show up ready to learn every day! Through your training, you learn about animal behavior, breed characteristics, stages of development, body language, and stress signals. You also learn some basic dog training skills such as teaching dogs how to sit, wait, and leave it. Additionally, you learn how to lead a group of pets, perform first aid tasks or CPR, sanitize, and recognize health issues.

Besides learning the dog training basics, you also supervise playgroups, meal prep, regularly replenish water, perform regular physical checks, and clean play areas or equipment. Building strong relationships with each pet, you work hard to make sure you know all the animals in your playgroup. This helps you with specific training exercises catered to each individual pet, so we know their needs are being met and that we are truly helping them. As needed, you report any unusual behavior, illness, or injuries as well as produce regular reports and paperwork. You're essential to maintaining the emotional well-being of our dogs. You look forward to coming to work and having fun with our furry guests!
