Casual Position for Dog Daycare Attendant

About Dog’s Day Out

Dog’s Day Out Doggy Daycare is a new and bustling Doggy Daycare situated at Yerrabi Ponds, Gungahlin. We opened our doors to provide a safe, clean and FUN place for Canberra’s dogs to play the day away.  Our focus is on socialising, training and enriching the lives all of our beautiful doggy clients!

About the role

In this exciting and busy role you will be responsible for:

  • Supervising off-leash play groups
  • Engaging, playing and training dogs
  • Serving our lovely clients at pick up and drop off times
  • Cleaning, cleaning and MORE cleaning!
  • Constantly monitoring the welfare of the dogs in your care

About you

While working with dogs sounds like a lot of fun (and it is!) it is also a very demanding job physically and mentally. We are looking for people who would love to become part of a team, who can work both with others and independently. Must be extremely quick on their feet and fast thinking, with the ability to multitask – we have to be able to improvise and adapt to whatever the dogs throw at us! 

We need someone who isn’t afraid to get their hands dirty as there is A LOT of cleaning.

As we are a new business we would love someone who is proactive and energetic! 
We are looking for someone who would love to have the opportunity to grow and learn with us, with the flexibility that will be needed during business growing pains. 

You MUST be a lover of all dogs! No matter the size or the breed!

If you are put off by smelly odours, slobber, loud noises or poop, this is not the job for you.

Professional experience in the animal industry is NOT essential for this position, but being enthusiastic, eager to learn, being extremely reliable and have great customer service is a must!

This position averages 30 hours a week on a casual basis, with at least 4 split shifts a week (shifts will have approximately 3-4 hours break between). We are only open Monday-Friday though, so no weekend work!
There is also a probability that hours can increase as the business does.
