You'll lead the pack (well, class) in terms of teaching engaging classes to pet parents for all stages of their pet's lives.

Upon completion, you'll be hands-on with pets and leading our Pet Training Programs. Through our broad range of class programs, you will:

  • Teach classes to a variety of dog breeds, sizes and ages

  • Lead each class with an emphasis on the safety and comfort for pets and pet parents

  • Show patience to pet parents when training their very excited puppy

  • Guide pets through our NEW (retail's first ever) Pet Therapy Training Program

  • Have a lot of fun.

  • Build strong bonds with all two legged and four legged members of your class!

  • Gain experience in a different business unitfrom the store to the salon or the Pets Hotel

  • Develop your leadership skills as a department manager

  • Transfer to any one of our 1600 stores nationwide

  • It's the excitement you feel when you help a little one pick out his very first fish. And not just any goldfish, but that one, right there, no not that one, this one, yea!

  • It's the relief Rosie feels when you help her mom select the best food for her upset tummy and her delight when it turns out to be chicken flavored!!

  • It's the pride of the giving Mickey a makeover in our salons watching him strut his stuff on the way out. Paws off, ladies, he's taken!

  • It's the joy of reuniting Frankie with her family after a fun stay in our Pets Hotel.

  • It's the celebration of Bella's birthday, Gizmo's graduation from puppy classes or Ace's adoption.

  • It's the little things we do that add up to really big things that pets need.
