Job Vacancies & Work Experience

Job Vacancies 

We are currently looking for a Dog Walker to join our team in the Gloucester area.  This is a self employed role, working 5-10 hours per week (2 per day) initially, with the potential to take on more clients as desired.

You will need to have a level 3 qualification related to the role and be willing to attend / assist with training classes on a Sunday evening for 18 weeks (6 courses) as well as attend one of our Reactive Rover courses to ensure that you are working in line with our ethos.

You will be covered by our insurance and we will provide a Naturally Clever Canines jumper and polo shirts.  Please note:  this will only cover you for self employed work while working with Naturally Clever Canines clients.

You will need to be available to do a trial week in July, before taking on the clients from Monday 31st July.

Trainee Positions

We are always on the look out for budding new trainers to join our team and we have the approach that we should support and guide one another in the kind, modern methods of dog training if we wish to see growth and improvement within the industry.

Our trainee positions are voluntary, with you eventually taking on more responsibility and getting paid on a self employed basis.  We will provide in house training plus any essential training such as canine first aid, however, preference will be given to those who have, or are currently studying, at least a level 2 or 3 in Animal Care (or other relevant subject).

We aim to get trainees attending our pet dog training classes to begin with before attending our specialist classes such as reactive rover.  We will work with the aim of getting you ready to take an APDT trainer assessment. 

Once a trainee has attended a certain duration of training classes, depending on other qualifications and experience, we may then look at the possibility of them taking on dog walking clients for the company.

If you would be interested in joining the team as a trainee then please email Helen on:  helen.gerard@naturallyclevercanines.co.uk
