Pet Care Associate
Skipper is on a mission to revolutionize the dog parent experience through a single, trusted brand and end-to-end platform. We are the pioneers of Skiptown, the place for pups and their people. Skiptown is the first-of-its-kind, tech-infused, private, off-leash indoor/outdoor dog park, bar, and dog care facility.
The pet services industry is ready to be disrupted and we are leading the charge. Come join our team of dog lovers and help us change the world for the modern dog parent. We are looking for passionate and creative animal lovers to provide unparalleled care for our amazing clients and their adorable pets.
Our Skipper Pet Care Associates are passionate about animals, think quickly on their feet, and create adventures in everyday life.
Pet Care Associates spend the majority of their day ruffereeing playgroups of up to 10 dogs at a time. They maintain the cleanliness of the facility, take dogs on outdoor adventures, and give our four-legged guests love and attention!
