Welcome To Animal House Wilmington - Applying For The Dog Handler Position

Animal House Wilmington is looking for Dog Handlers! We're looking for individuals who want to spend all day in the company of four legged friends, with a passion for their care and safety. 

Key responsibilities include:

  • Overseeing a playgroup of dogs and managing their behavior and playtime as your primary focus. 
  • Learning animal behavior in order to provide a safe environment, including studying canine body language and learning how to make dogs comfortable in a kennel and playgroup environment.  
  • Managing the cleanliness of our kennels and play areas and maintaining the highest possible cleaning standards. Cleaning toys, washing dishes, mopping floors, vacuuming hair, and taking care of unpleasant doggy messes are critical aspects of the job! 
  • Use common sense to solve problems as it relates to dogs in our care.

  • Must have basic customer service skills and be able to follow our safety protocols. 
  • Must love dogs. We have a lot of them! 

If this sounds like you, we want you on our team! Currently looking for part time help only.
