Join Our Faculty

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 he/she deserves. We employ extra staff to care for these groups, clean after them, and organize them daily. We work to help parents when they are struggling with unwanted behaviors and we show love and care with every interaction with our clients.

Today, Mutty Paws Academy carries on these responsibilities with the new goal of being the best dog daycare to work for in the state of Maine! We carefully select our faculty members are are seeking candidates that are aspiring to make dog care a career and not just a job. We provide our team inital and ongoing training to decipher canine body language and how to properly manage and educate small groups of dogs while in a daycare enviornment. We work with the teachers, coaching on appropriate play styles, and how to positively reinforce desirable behaviors.  We are a professional organization and take our responsibilities seriously so if you think this job is about playing with puppies all day, 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 our “catch a co-worker doing something right” program to promote positive feedback amongst our staff and facilitate a friendly team atmosphere. Mutty Paws management will feature an employee of the month in the lobby so our clients will learn a bit more about the amazing team members that are caring for their loved-ones.

If you have a passion for working with dogs and feel you would bring a hard work ethic, compassion, and teamwork to our faculty, please complete this APPLICATION.
