Your availability during these times is critical in our ability to provide safe and quality care to our guests. Additionally, on occasion we need help with weekend events, and schedule team meetings in the evenings. If this something you are not able or willing to make yourself available for, please reconsider before applying for a Tega K9 team position.

The dogs and puppies must be constantly kept in a clean, friendly, physically and mentally healthy environment which includes a variety of cleaning duties.
When you are not working directly with the dogs, you will be cleaning up after them, sweeping and mopping floors, cleaning crates, emptying trash, and washing dishes…to name a few your responsibilities. You will be peed on and pooped on. You will have to clean up diarrhea and vomit. You will be exposed to loud noise, blood, cleaning agents (however, we are as green as possible in this area), allergens and dander. Although we do our best to screen all dogs that enter our facility, dogs are unpredictable by nature. Therefore, you risk the danger of being bitten or injured by an animal. If you have a problem with any of this, again, please reconsider before applying for this job.
