Nufnuf is looking for LEADING DOG SITTER to further develop the concept of cage-free dog day care and hotel, which is unique in Estonia. Products for pets have been produced and sold worldwide under the Nufnuf brand since 2015. Nufnuf dog cage-free dog daycare and hotel opened in December 2022. In less than a year, the number of customers and team members has increased threefold. Our center in Tallinn, Tondi, has grown from 200 square meters to 450 square meters - in addition to the indoor spaces, there is a 150 square meter outdoor dog walking area, a prestigious grooming salon, Estonia's first indoor pool for dogs only, and training programs for dogs and their owners. Equally as important as the excellent physical environment created for dogs at Nufnuf is that we have been able to create a safe environment for providing off-leash dog daycare and hotel services. It is based on the belief that for a dog's mental and physical health, the dog needs regular time in the herd with its peers. We have created an environment where unique herd dynamics arise, i.e. dogs who are strangers but friendly to each other learn skills from each other and from our team members to be even better dogs. The result is a more confident and calmer dog than before, which benefits the dog, its family and the community in which it lives. During the 11 months of operation, we have more than 500 active four-legged customers to show for it, who have visited us more than 4,500 times during this time; four-legged customers put their muzzles towards us and spend a day or stay with us more than 400 times a month; 60+% of all customers use our services regularly, which has given our team of 8 people confidence that we are doing the right thing. In order to be even better at offering our service, we are looking for a colleague with outstanding personal qualities and practical experience as a dog trainer to join our team, from whom we expect: - Practical work experience as a dog trainer; - Good knowledge of the mental, physical and species-specific needs of dogs (corresponding qualification can be proven with certificates, but we value equally important if the above-mentioned knowledge has been acquired through long practical work and independently improving theoretical knowledge in the field of dogs); - Willingness to work with all dog breeds and dogs at different levels of development; - Independence, calmness and self-confidence when working with dogs; quick and appropriate reactivity and stress tolerance in a situation where, as a leading dog sitter in a cage-free daycare, you have to be responsible for the welfare and safety of up to 30 dogs (in a team with other dog sitters); - Initiative by creating and developing existing as well as new services in cooperation with the team; - Experience of managing and guiding people - communication with dog owners and team members; - Willingness and ability to conduct individual and/or group trainings for dogs, dog owners and team members; - In the case of non-Estonian native speakers, good oral and written English language skills, in the case of others, good oral and written Estonian and English language skills; - Intermediate computer skills. We offer: - A unique environment for professionals working with dogs to develop their professional skills while working in a unique cage-free environment in Estonian conditions; - Professional in-service training worth up to one monthly salary per year - Competitive salary and possibility to earn bonuses - Career opportunities in a rapidly developing company - Supportive and dedicated team The work can be started immediately or by agreement at a later time.
