The initial growth of Mutty Paws was spurred by the community’s response to the values of putting dogs first. Mutty Paws was the first large dog daycare center in Southern Maine to organize small group sizes to be sure each pup receives the attention they deserve. We employ exceptional staff to care for these groups, keep dog areas clean, and to match each dog with the appropriate playgroups. We strive to help parents when they are struggling with unwanted behaviors and show love and care with every interaction with our clients.
Today, Mutty Paws Academy carries on these responsibilities with the goal of being the best dog daycare to work for in the state of Maine! We carefully select our faculty members and seek candidates that are aspiring to make dog care a career, not just a job. We provide our team initial and on-going training to decipher canine body language and how to properly manage and educate small groups of dogs while in a daycare environment. We work with our staff to couch them on appropriate play styles and how to positively reinforce desirable behaviors. We are a professional organization and take our responsibilities seriously. If you are interested in a position with us with the intent that this job is just playing with puppies, please do not apply.
To reach our goal of being the best pet care employer, we are offering mostly full-time positions that include an option for health and dental insurance as well as retirement benefits. We administer a ‘accomplishment chart’ program to promote achievements as well as progress and growth with the company. This program consists of reachable goals with time and initiative that is matched by eligibility for raises and promotions among our staff and facilitate a friendly team atmosphere.
If you have a passion for working with dogs and feel you would bring a hard work ethic, teamwork, and positively to our faculty, please complete this APPLICATION.
