Dogs!  Need we say more?  Well, we will say more about what it takes to get to play with dogs as a job!  A good Pet Pro is someone who can embrace and promote team culture as well as naturally provide superior customer service.  We are looking for team members who are highly self-motivated, take direction well, have excellent communication skills, and a great attention to detail.  Our team focuses on exceptional care for our dog guests, top notch customer service for our human guests, and the cleanliness of our facility.

A Day In The Life:

As a Pet Pro, you are part of a larger team who is focused on the daily pet care of our guests. You’ll report to work over a variety of shifts to handle dogs of all sizes and personalities.  Guest care can range from individual or group play sessions, feeding to exact parent specifications, medicating on schedule, and cleaning rooms.  You could also oversee a swimming group!  You will also be able to discuss the details of the guest's stay with the pet parents and share in the joy of the reunion after a wonderful day of day play or a long boarding stay.  Get ready to get dirty but be thanked with tail wags and smiling owners!
