-Be not only committed to positive reinforcement, force-free, R+ approach but also an advocate for animals in your care
A lot of our clientele are regular, happy animals. But, some have been through traumas and have behavioral issues. The need for safe pet care FOR every animal is our mission. When working at Fairy Dog Mama (www.FairyDogMama.ca), you would work your way up as you gain experience with the level of reactive animals you would care for.
- You will need to take pet first aid and continue your education with courses created by local positive reinforcement trainers. This is easy, and something you should want to do if you think this job would be a fit for you!
- We believe in positive reinforcement training methods, as we are VERY specific in our training when it comes to this. Although you may just be caring for the animals and not training, you will need to know the basics to conduct yourself properly.
- We only take a small cut to cover my time spent training, coordinating and attending meetings, licensing etc. Please be aware, hours are inconsistent and divided up between the team based on availability, skills, and just being the right fit for the right family! However, with our growing clientele base, the opportunity for a consistent schedule and full is highly probable!
Please note: Candidates must be available to work on weekends and will receive the best jobs due to their commitment and availability.
We are a great company to work for, we love animals and we are a strong friendly team that love working with each other!!!
