Dog Handler
Paws for Love Inc.
Windsor, ON

Job Description

I am looking for candidates who have working experience in the animal care field. Owning your own dogs or the fact that you just love dogs, although great, it is not the experience that I am looking for. If you have worked in a kennel, grooming shop, daycare, pet store, apprentice to a dog trainer, or in a vet clinic you are the candidates I am interested in hearing from. Please do not apply if you have no working experience in the animal care field.

You would be responsible for all of the following:

customer service...booking appointments, answering phones, describing and promoting our services, taking payments, POS transactions, educating clients, selling retail items, handling customer concerns/complaints.

kennel attendant...cleaning and disinfecting kennels, feeding/providing water to dogs and cats, moving/handling dogs from one area to the next.

daycare attendant...supervising large groups of dogs in an interactive social group, understanding dog behaviour, preventing fights, controlling play groups, training good behaviour.

Dog grooming assistant... bathing and drying dogs, cutting nails, brushing dogs/cats

Janitorial...you are responsible for cleaning and disinfecting of entire facility, play areas indoors and out, sweeping, mopping, dusting, wiping down walls, hosing down yard, taking out garbage and any other tasks as assigned.

This is a fast paced job that can be physically demanding. Must be able to lift 25-50lbs, be flexible and be able to stand for long periods of time.

I am looking for mature candidates who are interested in a career working with animals.

We are open 7 days a week, including holidays. You must be willing to work during this time. We currently have 4 shifts in which you will be rotated through and must be available for all. An opening shift from 6:30am till 2:30pm, 1st middle shift from 8am till 4:30pm, 2nd middle shift from 9am till 5:30pm and a closing shift from 12:30pm till 8pm. If you are only available in the evening, this is not the job for you. You must be flexible in your scheduling as you may be asked to stay a half hour to an hour after your posted shift on busy days.

Please respond with a cover letter and resume outlining your work experience and why you fit the criteria I am looking for. Only those that meet the required criteria and send a cover letter outlining your working experience in the animal care field will be considered.
