It requires teamwork, attention to detail, and a lot of physical activity.

  • Feeding, bathing, medicating, and maintaining a clean kennel environment
  • Providing specialized care for newborn puppies, whelping mothers, and our breeding colony
  • Handling data entry and duties related to socialization and enrichment to support the success of our dogs

What you’ll love:

  • Our 3-month training and mentorship program
  • Our 28,000-square-foot Puppy Center and nursery
  • The camaraderie of our incredible team
  • Opportunities to learn about neonatal care and early canine development
  • A campus with extras like yoga, circuit training, and an onsite gym

The qualifications you’ll need:

  • Desire for knowledge
  • Flexibility
  • Experience caring for dogs in a kennel, veterinary or training environment preferred
  • Ability to follow treatment plans and administer medications
  • Knowledge of kennel procedures and strict disease control
  • Physical stamina to be on your feet bending, lifting, scooping, and hosing
  • Ability to work weekends, evenings, overnights, and holidays
