Hip, professional workplace Downtown Minneapolis. Stable work with animals that pays benefits!

Love dogs? Love people? Love to clean? Attentive to detail? Have a heart full of passion and care?

Downtown Dogs is hiring full and part time dog handlers. It is a great way to get your foot into the world of "working with animals". You will learn the science of animal behavior, and the intricacies of dog care.

Hours: Minimum 20 Hrs/week
Benefits: If full time, Health, Dental, Vacation, Retirement
Salary: $9-$10 DOE

The work has 3 components:
Dog Care - Managing packs, feeding, exercising
Customer Service - Working with animals (at least in the service industry) means working with people
Cleaning - Scrubbing kennels, spraying down yards, waste pick up, power scrubbing etc

Required Qualifications:
Reliability - When someone is late, the animals suffer so working with dogs demands a very high level of reliability
Flexibility - The animals needs never end. Hours include evenings, weekends, and holidays
Positivity - We want a happy, energizing work environment for all. We look for people who will bring positive energy to the environment (so everyone can have an environment full of it)
Patience - Working with animals is a lot like working with children. Our standard is that handlers are calm and kind no matter what. And that takes patience
Passionate about learning - There is a TON of fascinating things to know
Productivity - We have a lot of dogs to take care of. You will be moving and grooving (and lifting, and hauling, and bending) your entire shift
Ability to be on feet for 8 hours at a stretch and lift 50 pounds over and over again (see above)
Love detail - Good care means details matter (each dog has a specific diet, medication, and schedule and getting it right every time is critical to good care)
Love people - There is lots of client contact and we need to take good care of them too.
Love dogs - Obviously
