Stella Ruffington’s is West Seattle’s kennel free boarding, doggy playcare and grooming destination and we are looking for a new staff member.
Responsibilities include but are not limited to:
Supervising the playcare and boarding dogs. Feeding the dogs, lots of indoor and outdoor cleaning and some maintenance chores are required. Some interaction with clients, answering phones, and paperwork is also involved. Caring for dogs is a very rewarding and exciting job, however it does involve far more than just “hanging out with the puppies”. You should be able to deal with jumping, barking, more jumping, a little dirty, and sometimes a lot of wet dogs. Poo explosions, flying fur and ringing phones should not faze you either. It is very physical work, requiring the ability to multi-task as well as possesses the patience of a Saint, however it’s also lots of fun.
If you are responsible, honest, prompt, and able to work independently then send a cover letter explaining why you would like to work with dogs and/or your resume firstname.lastname@example.org. Please, no phone calls or drop in visits as we are working with the dogs or taking client calls.
Previous experience is preferred, but that is not a deal breaker. Good customer service skills are however.
