Started over 10 years ago, the business has an upmarket and loyal clientele and these positions have become available as the business is growing.


The farm is gorgeous, safe, large and gated.  It really is a dog Disneyland with a tennis court with an automatic tennis ball thrower for the ball obsessed and also a human sized swimming pool for the water babies.


The team are all hard-working, lovely caring people who adore dogs but also care about each other. We are looking for positive, experienced dog handlers and team players.


About the Roles

 Dog Handlers/Drivers
