Crossbones Dog Academy is a dog training & daycare facility with a unique Day School program that combines daycare and training for dogs and puppies. At this time, we are looking for full-time dog daycare facility assistants (35-40 hours per week) to clean and maintain the facility. Interested candidates MUST be available to work a set schedule Monday through Friday, either 6:40AM-3:10PM or 10AM-6:30PM.
This person would be responsible for cleaning the facility inside and out, including sweeping, mopping, vacuuming, dusting, washing walls, running loads of laundry, and doing dishes. Outdoor tasks include pulling weeds, sweeping, using a leaf blower, shoveling snow, and watering flowers. Once those tasks are mastered, facility assistants learn to do work more closely related to the dogs, including filling food-dispensing toys and distributing them to dogs and taking dogs outside for individual potty breaks.
Our team members participate in open and frequent communication in person, over walkie talkies, and digitally through Slack. We’re looking for someone we can rely on, a new team member who works hard, has strong communication skills, and who loves dogs AND people. Are you our next team member?
This is an entry-level position with lots of room for growth. Many of our previous facility assistants have gone on to other positions within Crossbones, including becoming full-time professional dog trainers!
The ideal candidate for this position would have…
- 1+ year employment experience cleaning & maintaining a place of work
- Experience with animals, such as through volunteer work, 4-H, FFA
- Interest in clicker training and positive reinforcement dog training
- A strong desire to be part of a team committed to personal and professional excellence. We strive to be great dog trainers, great dog owners, and great people!
Pay is hourly, commensurate with experience and qualifications, and starting at $14 per hour plus benefits. (See the bottom of this page for a full list of benefits.)
