Dog Daycare Park Supervisor – Newton, MA

Modern Mutts is seeking a part-time Dog Daycare Park Supervisor. Candidates are responsible for supervising dogs of all sizes in an outdoor off-leash group play environment in a fenced-in dog park. Experience with dogs, proper dog handling skills, and basic knowledge of dog behavior is preferred, but not required. Candidates must be physically able to handle dogs of all sizes. Responsibilities include, but are not limited to: supervising and maintaining a safe environment for all dogs, engaging with and playing with the dogs, filling water bowls, cleaning up after the dogs, loading and unloading the dogs from the van, toweling off dogs if they get dirty before transport, and taking some fun videos and pictures.

This job includes handling and engaging with dogs regularly, so candidates with dog handling experience will be given priority consideration. The Dog Daycare Park Supervisor must be able to multi-task in a fast-paced environment and be a team player. Daycare is held rain or shine year-round, closing or adjusting services when the weather is bad. Having good outerwear is encouraged and can be provided if needed. 

Daycare is held at the dog park Monday – Friday from 9:30am – 3:30pm. We will consider applicants who can only work a few days per week, preferably our busiest days which are Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. This job is a great opportunity for parents to work part-time while kids in school, for college students, for retired people, young professionals, and anyone who just loves dogs! You will not be required to transport dogs in your personal vehicle nor to work nights, weekends, or holidays. Just show up on time each day and enjoy the company of dogs and you’ll do great at this job! 

If you are interested in becoming the newest member of our team please email your resume and a short cover letter to Modern Mutts to be considered for an interview. In your cover letter, we’d like to know about your experience owning or working with dogs if any, and why this position appeals to you.

Dependent on experience, entry-level starts at $16.00/hr

There will be a review after three months of employment where there will be the potential for a raise.
