Are you passionate about dogs, fit and active, love being outdoors no matter the weather and interested in learning all that you can about everything canine? 

Then this is the role for you!

To excel in this role, you will possess a deep interest in canine behaviour, and be highly observant of canine social interactions. Self-motivation, resourcefulness (that old-fashioned Kiwi ingenuity), and a strong moral compass will also contribute to your success as an Adventure Dog Handler. Prior experience in Adventure Dog Handling is not a requirement. Instead, we seek individuals with a positive attitude, a readiness to learn and adapt, and the willingness to grow into the responsibilities of the role.

Our systems necessitate our handlers possess essential attributes such as time management skills, attention to detail, and the ability to follow instructions diligently. 

Successful applicants will receive comprehensive training, ongoing up-skilling, and continuous full-time backup and support. We are committed to ensuring you are well-trained, equipped and confident in your role as an Adventure Dog Handler and can provide the best possible experience for your canine charges. 

While company vehicles are available for your use, we offer higher remuneration to handlers who utilise their own vehicles. Ideally, suitable vehicles include station wagons, vans or larger 'tradie' vehicles that can withstand the rigours of dirty dogs with muddy paws and coats. 

Hourly rates range from $25.00 - $30.00 depending on experience, and a fuel allowance is provided. 

If you are passionate about dogs, have, or would like a deep understanding of canine behaviour, and are thrilled by the prospect of exploring the outdoors with a pack of amazing dogs, we encourage you to apply. Your love of dogs and enthusiasm for this unique outdoor adventure role will make you an ideal candidate for the Adventure Dog Handler position.

Best of luck with your application!

Our 5 year old lab has been having weekly adventures for the past 4 years and loves everything about it, her handler, different venues. I find the administrative side of the business easy to work with and receptive to any queries. At the end of the day it is comforting knowing she is with people that love her as much as we do.
