the dogs are the best part
management isn't great, they allow shift leads to talk down to everyone else and don't do anything about it. high turnover rate2

From management to coworkers, everyone is very warm, accommodating, welcoming, and supportive. Like most things, if you put in the effort (show up on time, work hard, be positive), there is tons of room for growth when it comes to salary and job positions. Playing with dogs all day isn’t too bad either ;)
Dog daycare is a more laborious job than most expect. It’s lots of physical work and can be overstimulating at first. This is not a con but for clarity: they are flexible when it comes to schedule, time off, but not when it comes to calling out sick. Because of how Dogtopia runs, every person is crucial, if you call out sick, you are putting a hole in the system and they can’t run properly. If you are someone to often call out sick unexpectedly, this is not the job for you. Training is extensive (as it should be), so be aware of that and stay on top of it.

You form bonds with the dogs you see all the time and get to play fun games with them and do fun activities. The staff is super sweet and friendly. I loved this job a lot.
Not a lot of opportunities for growth and no benefits unless your management. Each store is different but the owners at the location in frisco blamed everything on staff and we were very under appreciated. Not everyone would pull their weight and would cause the rest of us to pick it up. We were also constantly stressed due to the owner not scheduling enough people for us to get through the shift without stress because of money.
