PACK LEADER

The primary role of the Whole Dogz Pack Leader is to provide a safe and fun environment for the dogs in your care.   You will be in rooms housing small, medium and large dogs.  Room placement is dependent upon your skills and ability to handle dogs.
 
Its not all fun and games.  Dogs go to the bathroom – all of the time.   

As Pack Leader its important to monitor the dogs play, make certain that dogs are not getting too rough in their play and make certain that some dogs are not left out of play and become members of the pack.  This can include teaching dogs to sit, stay, and when to play!   We have balls, bubbles, music – all designed to help you during the day.

This is an intense job.  You are on your feet most of the day, cleaning, playing and getting dogs ready to go home.  Breaks can be taken for the bathroom, but there are no “specific” breaks during the day. 

Pack Leaders in the a.m. shift are also expected to assist with the morning feeding of dogs, ensuring that they eat; the lunch feeding of dogs; cleaning of water bowls, kennels, floors, hallways, fences, and the outdoor area.  Evening Pack Leaders are required to assist in the delivery of dogs to owners, cleaning the daycare room at night, assist in the feeding of boarding dogs, and taking boarding dogs out for one last bathroom break.  Evening Pack Leaders are also required to clean water bowls, prepare the cleaning buckets for the next day, ensuring that all dogs are tucked in for the evening

A Pack Leader is a critical component of the day at Whole Dogz.   You must be responsible and if you show an interest, we are interested in moving you up in the organization.
