What life as a Kennel Attendant looks like:

Our specialists truly love our furry guests of all shapes and sizes, and are able to handle each with control, calm discipline, and positivity.

You will bathe, feed, walk, and monitor our guests closely to ensure they are eating well and are well-adjusted while in our care. You will be gentle and respectful toward our fur friends while instilling good canine manners for all guests. We are open 365 days a year, so you will rotate spending some weekends and holiday time caring for our four-legged friends.

You will also get the opportunity to show potential customers around our facilities with enthusiasm and pride. You will have times of multi-tasking, answering pet parent calls, and using your computer skills, as we track our fur friend's progress.
