Working For Us

At Tallowood Boarding Lodge we look for staff committed to deliver the ultimate in service for our clients and their loved pets. Our aim is to give our clients full confidence that they have chosen the best care for their pet, and we employ staff fully committed to that philosophy.

The owners, Mike and Ray, took a tree change-sea change option in 1999 to develop our beautiful kennel facility to meet a need we saw for quality pet boarding services in the region. We are dog and cat lovers and treat all guests as one of our own.  We employ a small team of experienced and dedicated pet loving staff. Tallowood is strongly committed to providing future opportunities from within the business to provide a knowledgeable and dedicated workforce for our future. We like to give our staff the opportunity to develop a broad range of skills both in pet care, customer care and office management. We aim to give our staff the opportunities to reach their full potential.

At Tallowood we look for staff who can demonstrate work experience and/or studies in the pet care industry to give us some indication that candidates have the necessary strong vocation to work with and care for pets. We also like to employ staff with a demonstrable strong work ethic, good customer skills background and some IT experience. We only employ people who enjoy coming to work with the pets in our care.
