Puppy Training School Manager

10 Jun 2024

First, it's all about puppies.

Are you passionate about dogs and skilled in management? Established in 2014, Hillary’s Hound House in San Rafael is looking for a fantastic, kind, reliable and capable Manager. Our 4-week long Jumpstart Puppy Program®️ caters to all variety of breeds and ages ranging 8 weeks to 6 months celebrating 10 wonderful years with our close-knit community.

Responsibilities Include:

· Manage day-to-day operations of the nursery. We like to keep a calm and sweet environment. Our most played Pandora station is Native American Flute Music

· Oversee a class of 10 or more puppies—you’ll experience puppies of all stages with various character. Some may be shy or serious while others are excitable and hilarious! Understanding that a bark isn’t just a bark, the puppy may be signaling for potty, thirst, or attention.

· Work closely with Hillary (brainstorming new ways to keep our operations fun and productive.)

It's a highly enjoyable day. We shoot videos and train together all day. We go to the bay, beautiful parks, and Larkspur Landing where we train and laugh all afternoon.
