The RubaDubDog Bathhouse and Spa (Division of Generation Dog, LLC) is hiring at least one possibly two additional groomers for our team. You will work in our newly designed grooming salon blocks from our current location, that will be open for business on March 1st. We have the reputation as one of the best full service grooming salons and have been in business for 9 years, serving a loyal clientele that loves to pamper their pooches!
We only use high quality products, do not use kennels for drying or containment, and dogs are given the personalized attention that may be lacking in other grooming environments. In fact, our model is more like a human hair salon because we work solely by appointment and the dogs receive our undivided attention from bathing to handdrying and finishing. Our clients LOVE that they do not have to leave their furry family members all day, and that we put the extra effort into making sure their dog is treated just like they would treat them and TIP GENEROUSLY as a result.

Have a positive attitude and dedicated work ethic. We don't start work at the crack of dawn so expect you to be on time. Emergencies will always come up but repeated absenteeism is frowned upon. We will be loyal to you and make sure that you are treated fairly and expect the same in return.
Maintain a great bedside manner with both dogs and their owners. Not only do you need to be able to make the dog comfortable, but the owner has to feel 100% secure in leaving the dog in your care.
