Want to Work at Happy Tails?


Part-Time & Full-Time Kennel Assistants


We are growing and expanding!  Happy Tails Learning Center for Dogs is hiring Part-Time & Full-Time Kennel Assistants.  We’re looking for someone with flexible availability that is interested in working 20-40 hours.


  • Monday-Sunday typically 7am-6:30pm (11.5-hour shifts plus breaks)
  • Monday-Sunday typically from 7am-1pm (6 hour shift plus breaks)
  • Late Night Shifts 9:45pm- approximately 11pm
  • You will not work Monday-Sunday, but these are the shifts we fill


The candidate will be responsible for heavy cleaning (kennels, crates, vacuuming and mopping floors, other general cleaning, etc).  You will also be responsible for the care of dogs (feeding, pottying them, bathing, administering medicine, etc).  For a complete job description, please see attached file:

Kennel Assistant Job Description


You must be willing and able to work with dogs of all temperaments and sizes. The position is very physical so you must be physically capable of performing the responsibilities (see above attachment: Kennel Assistant Job Description). You need be willing to work independently and must be reliable. It is ideal if you currently work with dogs or have kennel experience.  Candidate must be at least 18 years old, have reliable transportation and have a strong work-ethic.   We are looking for candidates that have a go-with-the flow attitude (the dog world is often unpredictable), who will work hard, be reliable and who can work well with others.

**We do work holidays!



When we’re hiring future Administrative Assistants or Happy Tails Trainers, we look at our existing team first.  While there are no guarantees that you’ll become a trainer, we always evaluate our current kennel staff and look for opportunity to promote from within.  All trainers must receive their Master Training Certification from National K9 School for Dog Trainers in Columbus, OH.  Happy Tails pays for the training and schooling required for kennel assistants that are promoted.


While our jobs are important and must be taken seriously (we are responsible for furry lives after all), we also strive to have a fun place to work.  We work hard, and play hard!  We’d love to add a candidate that gets along well with others, is laid back and can go-with-the-flow as our day-to-day operations can change in a minute.

  • All employees receive discounts on training and products
  • Full-Time employees (35+ hours per week) receive paid vacation time and paid holidays
  • Full-Time employees can participate in a 401K program where we match up to 4% of your contribution after 1-year of employment
  • Starting pay $10/hour (raises available based on performance and length of employment)

Please send resume to Kate Lochner at info@happytailsrule.com. Please detail why you want to work at Happy Tails and what experience, if any, you have working with animals.
