Dog Daycare Attendant

Are you that friend who enters a room and foregoes conversation for the dog instead? Have you been told that you’re a dog incarnate?  That you have a way with animals? Or are you simply seeking a change of pace after working in an office setting year after year?

Furball Fitness could be your new landing spot! We are seeking a reliable, communicative, friendly, and compassionate dog lover to assist in daycare operations. 

Position: Dog daycare attendant.

Hours: Part-time position (20+ hours with room for growth).

Wage: $15 per hour.

Shift time: 11:30am – 7pm. Tuesday. Wednesday, Thursday. (21 hours per week to start)

Requirements:

    • Pack Leader
      • Must feel comfortable handling several dogs at once. You will be overseeing playtime at daycare, so it is important to be in tune with dog communication and body language. Ideally, seeking someone who can observe, anticipate, and be proactive in dissipating heightened dog energies when necessary.
    • Reliable and Punctual
      • Must be on time every single day. Clients rely on us to watch their dogs while they’re at work or doing other things. Because you will be assisting in dog intake, timeliness is very important. You are the welcome wagon! Please have reliable transportation or leave early enough on public transport so this will not be an issue.
    • Communicative
      • Outgoing folks please apply! You will be interacting with clients daily, as they drop off and pick up dogs. Be friendly and welcoming. Ask how they’re doing. Share anecdotes from the day. Make them happy with genuine caring and customer service.
    • Poop Patrol
      • This position includes maintenance of the warehouse. In other words, you’ll be a professional pooper scooper! The dogs are trained to do their business outside, but of course, we have accidents every now and then. Duties include poop disposal, light sweeping, and hosing down the facility regularly.
    • Socially Savvy
      • Must be proficient in Instagram. Photography is part of this job! You will document each day’s activities and send at least one photo or video to each client throughout the day. These same images can/will be shared with the world via Instagram. See @furballfitness (photos) @ohhellodog (stories) for examples.
    • Pup Shuttle
      • This role will eventually involve some driving. You will be trained to complete the Pup Shuttle route (dropping off dogs in the afternoons). Company car will be used. Must provide valid driver’s license and clean driving record.
    • Consistency Over Time
      • Temporary/gig workers need not apply. Furball Fitness is a growing brand with plans for expansion in the near future. You will grow with the company, with expanding responsibilities. We want you to stick around and be part of the family long-term. Run with us to the top! Also, it’s important for the dogs to have consistency, routine, and structure, so new caretakers every other month is not something we’re interested in.
    • Be Proactive
      • Treat this place as if it were your own. If the interior is a little bit in disarray, tidy up. If the dogs are too rambunctious, create separation until they calm down. You’ll have a lot of autonomy over how your day goes. Please use the time to be productive in keeping this place looking and operating beautifully.

Ready to start?? Please explicitly follow the directions below for consideration.
