Job's Peak Vet Hospital is hiring for Kennel Help 

Kennel attendants provide daily care for the dogs that are boarded in their kennel. They are involved with scheduling boarding appointments, cleaning cages and runs, bathing, grooming, exercising, feeding, administering medication, and monitoring the behavior of boarded dogs. They also interact with clients as they pick up and drop off their dogs.

Kennel attendants work under the direct supervision of the kennel manager, veterinarian, breeder, or other facility supervisors. In boarding kennels that operate as a part of a veterinary clinic, the kennel attendant may help handle and restrain dogs for veterinary procedures that are performed during their stay. Some kennels also may offer dog training services while dogs are being boarded, so attendants may assist with such activities under the supervision of the trainer.

Kennel attendants may be required to work irregular hours including evenings, weekends, and holidays. They also must be prepared to handle dogs that may be stressed due to their being in an unfamiliar environment. Kennel workers should always use caution when administering medication, feeding, and exercising boarded dogs to minimize the chance of an injury.
