Kennel Assistant

Kennel assistants provide daily care for hospitalized dogs and assist with kennel maintenance (cleaning and disinfecting). They are involved with scheduling appointments, cleaning cages and runs, bathing, grooming, exercising, feeding, administering medication, and monitoring the behavior of dogs.
