Care Team (Retail) – 9+CO /
Part Time/Full Time
/ On-site
Dogdrop is a new, fast-growing dog care start-up based in LA, building the largest network of dog daycares in the country.  Our convenient locations are designed to give modern dog parents flexible access to quality dog care from a brand they know and trust. 
Dogdrop is opening its first Denver location in the centrally-located and dynamic 9th & Colorado shopping area in May 2023.  We are seeking a ROCK STAR Dog Attendant (aka Droperator) to oversee the dogs in our care.  This is an exciting opportunity to be part of bringing a new brand to Denver and building it up from the ground level. 

As a Dogdrop Droperator, your focus will be on monitoring and managing the dogs in our care, ensuring their health & safety and proper socialization between dogs.  Part of the role will require cleaning up after the dogs and keeping the facility clean and orderly. 

Your day-to-day responsibilities will include

    • Ensure all dogs are always safe and healthy while at Dogdrop
    • Supervise the dogs in your dog park at all times.  You must be able to stand or walk for the duration of your shift (except during breaks)
    • Get to know each dog’s personality, schedule, and triggers so you can be as effective as possible in managing and engaging with them
    • Manage the energy of the dog park; understand that dogs are pack animals, and their energy needs to be managed both individually and as a group, which requires constant engagement and interaction. 
    • Be able to redirect dogs constantly (with commands, treats, toys, etc)
    • Help evaluate new dogs to see if Dogdrop is a good fit for them
    • Be able to execute any special requests that dog parents have (feeding, administering meds, giving naps or breaks)
    • Communicate effectively with the rest of the staff, making sure everyone is on the same page about each dog’s needs and behavior. 

About you

    • You love dogs and have experience working with dogs at a dog care facility.

    • You know about dog behavior but are also eager to learn the Dogdrop way of doing things. 
    • You are very patient and always kind to dogs and their humans. 
    • You don’t mind picking up or cleaning after dogs, and able to follow cleaning protocols and checklists. 
    • You’re punctual, reliable, and professional.
