Assistant Dog Trainer

Assistant Gun Dog and Obedience Trainer plus Kennel/Home Maintenance-Love's Labradors is seeking the right individual that desires to learn the art in gun dog training and Labrador breeding and all of the
responsibilities associated with it. Love's Labradors recently acquired 10 acres in the midst of millions of wheatland acres in Northeastern Oregon in the midst of the hunting mecca for deer and elk for most
of the Pac NW Hunters, plus grasslands and creeks to hunt wild pheasant and quail in abundance. 5 bedroom temperature controlled home large insulated temperature controlled barn with pigeon and duck pens large insulated shop to train in. Also adding 30 acres to the
progam here to build out technical ponds and tall rows of grass for both the waterfowl and upland training and hunting. 25 dogs need to be tended to, kennels cleaned and maintained per USDA standards, dog truck
cleaned and maintained per USDA standards, exercise for dogs per USDA standards, learning the art for a peaceful environment for Mom's and puppies (12-20 litters per year), learning how
to handle Veterinary care for non-emergency situations, maintaining a clean home (cleaning lady and weekly yard maintenance comes in from the outside to support cleanliness), traveling for competitions
to OR and WA from end of July thru Oct 1st (residing in toy hauler) as weather comes into the area bad at that time of year so I scoot!, non stressful environment, work 8 hours 4 days a week with 3 days off every week!!!!!!, need you here so I can train the dogs,
you need to have the love for the dogs, NOT a complainer, be of good health, pay attention to direction and detail, need
to be detailed in cleaning, able to throw birds and bumpers, able to drive a quad at a safe speed, help with yard work from time to time and bottomline, have a ton of fun. I've worked hard to build
a world class Labrador breeding program and now it is time to get back to training and competing once again. 21 dogs need training to acquire titles every year. If work in 2020 works out and you desire to stay, you will have Oct thru Jan off to
go home and in 2021 we can discuss a more permanent role in the build out of this gun dog and Labrador breeding business with higher wages. This is a Christian environment, drug free, no vaping, no smoking and no friends that visit that smoke.
You will reside in my home but will have your own space. If you reside in OR or WA and wish to go home every week for 3 days and work and live in my home for 4 days-Great! Not long hours, easy going environment and enjoy the incredible views and beauty here. The weather is incredible here in the winter as it is majority of the time 52 degrees in the day and might be 32 degrees at night. Not the constant rain like western Oregon.
Yes, Summer can get warm but we leave in July and go where it is cooler in WA and train and compete there. A Summer caretaker for 3 months takes over watching over the home, barn, large shop while we are gone.
You will be my right hand person and the grunt and crap work is not left for you as I am capable in joining in with you to get the dog chores done so we can get to training the dogs during the day, handle the clientele that visit and
maintain a nice, peaceful home and kennel here.
This position begins Jan/Feb 2020.
