About us

Dogtopia of Thunderbolt is the industry leader in dog daycare, boarding, and spa services. Located in Thunderbolt, Georgia.

We are looking for a Canine Coach who can work the afternoon/night shift (1:45 PM to 7:30 PM). The Canine Coach position is the heart of our business and is responsible for the daily play, safety, love, cleaning, and feeding of the dogs in our care.

You’d be a good fit for us if:

  • You love dogs, are comfortable around dogs, and would love to care for them.
  • You have experience in working with dogs in prior work or personal experiences.
  • You are self-motivated and have a strong work ethic.
  • You are willing to learn, train, and grow– whatever your experience with dogs.
  • You are able to stand and move during your entire shift.
  • You are a team player and willing to step up to help your co-workers.
  • You will have consistent, timely attendance and are willing to work weekdays and/or weekends with a flexible schedule.
  • You have a positive attitude.
  • You are detail-oriented and can follow instructions for daily cleaning, care, feeding, and documenting dog behavior.

We will be a good fit for you if:

  • You want to bring your dog to work!
  • You want to work for a company that has high standards for dog care and are challenged to meet and exceed those standards.
  • You love learning and are willing to complete on-line and in-room training on dog behavior, safety, health, and room control.
  • You desire a flexible schedule with morning or afternoon shifts M-F, and weekend shifts. You can work some holidays upon request.

The Canine Coach position is a 20-40 hour a week job that requires paid on-line training and in-room training. The average shift is 6-8 hours and requires the applicant to stand and move throughout the room, maintain a calm presence, and can “own” the room as the person in charge. The canine coach should be willing to use mentor coaching and constructive criticism to grow as a dog expert and project that confidence to the pet parents. We are completely transparent and our pet parents have access to cameras to view the rooms, so the applicant should be comfortable with being on camera.

Our Dogtopian rules are:

  • We LOVE life unconditionally like a dog.
  • We STAY loyal to our pack.
  • We CHASE the absolute highest standards of safety.
  • We PLAY to our fullest potential.
  • We TREAT every day like “It’s the Most Exciting Day Ever!”
