About the business
We are a well known thriving business with an amazing client base, centrally located in Hamilton. Our work environment is fantastic and we are a successful and close-knit team with a passion for dogs. We are seeking a competent large dog handler to help look after our Big Dog pack.
About the role
We are looking for a hard-working and dedicated Pack Assistant who can handle very large dogs. The role is "hands on" in our big dog pack, looking after our big dogs but also being there to manage and alleviate any behavioral issues promptly and effectively as they arise.
Additionally, our dog bays and outside area must be kept impeccably hygienic at all times, then cleaned in preparation for dog training most nights.
As we often have walls, couches and machinery to manoeuvre, we are seeking a person who can lift heavy objects with ease.
Benefits and perks
Going forward we expect our business to continue to grow exponentially, so we need someone looking for a challenge and willing to make the most of opportunities as they arise.
Skills and experience
The ideal candidate will have qualifications in Animal Care, however a candidate with a strong background dealing with large animals and a genuine affinity with big dogs will be considered.
We are looking for a dog lover with a kind, confident but patient temperament who can quickly take control of a large dog pack.
