RELEASE THE HOUNDS is looking for an awesome person to join our team. Over the last few years, we have grown into one of the largest and most respected dog care companies in the greater Vancouver area. With services ranging from dog walking, boarding and sitting to special event sponsorship, workshops, and seminars, our company remains committed to creating a safe, fun environment for dogs while setting a high industry standard. More importantly, we know how to have fun and make a difference in the lives of the pups we care for.
The relationships we form with our clients and their dogs are at the heart of what makes Release The Hounds successful. We recognize that caring for the family dog is a privilege that comes with great responsibility and we continually strive to offer an experience that promotes their well-being. We are looking for a new team member to join us on our journey. The position is permanent and full time. Working time is approximately 6-8 hours per day, 5 days per week, scheduled between 8:00am-4:00pm each day. Please note that this position is available to train immediately and will require a 1-year commitment. We offer on the job training and the opportunity to advance within our growing company. Release the Hounds is known for having a great team culture, company ethos and a great place to work.
This position is for private walks within the company, working with dogs on a one-on-one basis. Therefore, *a personal vehicle will be required* in order to drive from location to location. Compensation is based on a per walk basis (averages $1900to $2300/month). As they are private walks, there is no need to transport dogs inside your vehicle. You need a valid CLEAN driver's license and at least 2 years of driving experience. You must be bondable (no criminal charges or convictions). You must have a great personality and the ability to learn quickly.
As the job requirements are physical and involve extensive walking, it is important the successful candidate is capable of the physical requirements. For all Release the Hounds team members, we offer a great opportunity for ancillary income by boarding and house-sitting for our clients. This extra income can be substantive if you have a dog-friendly place or can house-sit.
Applicants who are able to board or house-sit will be considered preferred candidates. Please email us your resume AND a cover letter and we would love to have you considered for joining our team.
