SPRING/SUMMER STUDENT - MAY - Kennel Attendant

START DATE: IMMEDIATELY

8 WEEKS /35 HOURS per Week

POSITION DETAILS: Tuesday to Saturday / 10AM - 6PM (Some hour variations may occur with notice during holiday coverage etc) 

Paws Republic is a local urban-style pet care facility specializing in boarding, daycare, training and grooming! We pride ourselves in providing Personal Care, for Loved Pets and we need members of our team who are thrilled about the idea of giving some animals the extra attention they deserve :) 

We are currently recruiting for an 8 week spring/summer position starting immediately. 

RESPONSIBILITIES: 
Kennel attendants are to assist in providing daily care for boarded dogs, cats and small animals as well as assist with kennel cleaning and operations. They are also involved with customer interactions, scheduling pet care appointments, cleaning rooms and crates, bathing, basic grooming, exercising, feeding, administering medication, and monitoring the behaviour of boarded pets. 

They provide a clean, organized, and healthy environment for animals being treated or housed at a facility. Being able to clean, get your hands dirty, and maintain self-motivation are important keys to succeeding in this role. This entry-level position is ideal for animal lovers who have a friendly and positive attitude.

QUALIFICATIONS: 
People with a passion for the animal care field and a friendly service-minded attitude will thrive as kennel assistants. Prior experience as a kennel assistant is generally not required, but some experience with animals is preferred.

 

The following skills are essential to getting the job done:

  • Animal handing – confidence while physically handling animals is critical for kennel attendants. A major part of their role is patiently and securely working with animals in a variety of environments while performing essential tasks such as socializing, exercising, and feeding.

  • Cleaning and sanitation – excellent cleaning skills are a must for kennel attendants who clean kennels, scoop poop, sanitize play areas, and wash dishes.

  • Customer service – kennel attendants often take reservations, answer phones, and schedule animal drop-off and pick-up appointments.

  • Physical fitness – working at a kennel has certain physical requirements, such as the ability to lift a minimum of 50 pounds. Kennel attendants are typically on their feet for six to eight hours at a time and may have to lift larger breeds of animals.

  • Communication skills – listening to and communicating with a wide range of people is an essential skill that kennel attendants must tap into as they work with clients and animals, answer phones, and quickly respond to coworker requests.

  • Observation skills – since they help monitor animal care, kennel attendants must be able to notice small changes in animals’ behaviour and report any unusual actions. Kennel assistants pay particular attention to animals that are sick, elderly, or recovering

EDUCATION & TRAINING: 

Completion of high school or equivalent is required to become a kennel attendant.

This position is available to the following....

- those who have or will be completing high school or higher educational programs in 2020,

- are currently enrolled in a post-secondary educational program and on summer break or,

- plan to apply to a post-secondary program in the fall of 2020.

 

Kennel attendants will receive on-the-job training from their colleagues on how to perform their duties, adhere to facility policies, and use equipment such as phones or scheduling tools. Although there are no formal experience requirements, there may be preference for candidates to have animal care experience, even if on a volunteer basis.

 

Bonus if you have:
Post-secondary education in Animal Care, Veterinary Tech, or any other specific animal care training or experience outside of pet ownership.
