WE ARE HIRING!!!!!
Me ‘n Mom’s Doggy Shop is dog grooming in a busy, fast paced, fun and professional atmosphere. We pride ourselves on working as a team, sharing the workload and offering excellent customer service.
ABOUT THE POSITION
We are looking for a professional dog groomer. Someone with at least one years experience. You will know how to rough, bathe, and finish dogs. You will be required to demonstrate these abilities during your interview by roughing, bathing, and finishing a dog!
Safety!The Doggy Shop team always puts safety first! Our customers trust us with what they cherish most, and we make sure that trust is not misplaced! Treating dogs safely must come first and must come easily. This is not something we can train for, you either have it, or you don’t.
Learning!We are passionate about our work and about our animals. This is a competitive industry and even after years of experience we are still learning new tips, tricks and techniques to make our grooming better and more efficient. We expect our team to always be seeking knowledge and new skills, whether you are brand new or experienced.
Enthusiasm!Working with animals can be a dirty, exhausting job, but we get to work with animals!! Our passion for pets carries us through. We keep an upbeat atmosphere in a fun environment. When we have fun, the dogs have fun, and that makes for happy customers.
Carrying Dogs– This position requires heavy lifting! And usually the load is squirming, kicking, and sometimes sopping wet. The ability to lift 50lbs at leastis required.
Bathing Dogs– Using the appropriate water temperature, the appropriate shampoo, cleaning the dog thoroughly and then drying the dog. All while keeping the dog calm and happy, and in a timely manner.
Roughing and Finishing– Clipping nails, plucking ears, dematting, using clippers, using shears, etc. But as a professional dog groomer... you know what's included!
Cleaning– Sweeping, mopping, laundry, picking up poop, wiping up pee, dusting. These things need to be done continuously throughout the day. Every day.
Dog Anal Glands– Grooming is not just about esthetics. We are often the step between owner and vet in regards to physical well being. And one of the things that this entails is the messy and gross job of anal glands. Yes it involves a dog’s butt, yes it’s stinky, yes it’s repulsive. And yes, it’s part of the job.
Team Work- We work as a team here! We do not have the traditional roles of bather/rougher/finisher. We all do what needs to be done to get the dogs groomed! We all clean, we all bathe, and we get it done!! We help each other!
The above list is by no means exhaustive, but is a small snapshot of a day in the life of a dog groomer at our shop. It may not always be easy, but our love for furry faces carries us through!
Hours and Pay
Pay will be negotiable and based on experience. Pay is hourly (not commission). Weekends required. If this sounds like the opportunity you’ve been looking for, send us your resume!
