Working at Dog Dayz has really helped me reach my goals and fully realize my career path of aspiring to become a dog trainer. I volunteer with a number of Rescue organizations and have had past experience in fostering. I am an advocate for all breeds, especially bully breed awareness.

Jordan Hamilton, Daycare Attendant

I didn’t know I wanted to work in the pet industry until I got co-op placement here. As soon as I got the hang of things, I fell in love with the job. I look forward to seeing the dogs every day and miss them over the weekends and holidays. The job takes a lot of work but it’s worth it to see our dogs and owners happy. I could not imagine working anywhere else.
