    Pros

    This job allows you to get to know the dogs, as we have many regulars You receive adequate training before you even start working, and before you are assigned certain tasks Owner is there 6 days a week, and is extremely understanding and well versed in canine communication Management and coworkers are all very welcoming Most of the red collar dogs are extremely sweet, and only red collar as a precaution. Often times they are only red collar because they are easily over stimulated. Building is very clean and well taken care of. Clients are all super nice. Learn a lot about canine behavior, signs of aggression vs signs of fear etc... Owner shows lots of employee appreciation as well as client appreciation which keeps the job enjoyable. Pay is above average this type of job, and improves after a month of employment. Employee dogs get free daycare! If you are alone in a room, there is always someone available if you should need help with anything. My favorite thing is watching the shy, or awkward dogs get to come out of their shell and be more confident in the rooms. Watching them make buddies is the most rewarding part of the job. I truly cannot say enough good things about the owner and managers here. Seriously the BEST owner/employee relationship I have EVER seen.

    Cons

    Can't get a lot of hours as we are well staffed. The job is a lot of work, but that comes with any job working with animals. Lots and lots of cleaning up after dogs. Working weekends is never fun, but with boarding it is, of course, necessary. Occasionally there is additional cleaning that needs to be done, which can be just a bit overwhelming, but overall is worth it for the betterment of the company. My biggest complaint would be poop eaters, which isn't really something the company can control. Especially those who resource guard it! It is super stressful when you are surrounded by dogs, trying to clean up after them, and being growled at for it. However, most of them, if you just show them the mop or citronella spray they back off pretty quick.
