TRAVELLING DOG-NANNY REQUIRED FOR UHNW FAMILY

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for a passionate and caring dog-lover to undertake a travelling role caring for the much-loved dogs of our ultra-high net worth client based in Zurich, Switzerland. Joining a close-knit team of existing dog-nannies, reporting into the head dog nanny, you will work collaboratively in a shift pattern (including some evenings and weekends) to ensure the dogs receive the best possible care at all times. The dogs are show-dogs that regularly enter competitions, and therefore have strict routines for diets, medication, grooming and training – but there’s also plenty of time for walks and fun playtime.

Our clients are looking for a kind and caring dog nanny, who is calm, reserved and professional – a team player who can follow direction but is also able to work autonomously without supervision. Prior professional experience working with dogs would be hugely advantageous but is not essential. Loyalty and confidentiality are key – our client is very private and so discretion is of the utmost importance.

Based in Zurich, Switzerland, you will be provided with a private 2-bedroom apartment near to the principal’s property with all bills included. Regular travel throughout Europe will also be required, with all expenses covered whilst travelling.

All applicants must be eligible to work and live in the EU for easy relocation to Switzerland and travel throughout Europe.

RESPONSIBILITIES INCLUDE:
• Walking the dogs
• Preparation and serving of dog meals according to schedule
• Administering medication according to instructions and schedule
• Cleaning and grooming dogs
• Caring for dogs after medical treatment
• Cleaning of the dog area
• Organisation and taking care of all dog utensils
• Assistance and support in physiotherapy

ESSENTIAL CRITERIA:
• Experience in dealing with multiple dogs at any one time
• Flexibility (working evenings and weekends)
• Team-oriented personality
• Willingness to travel
• Loving and gentle handling of dogs
• Calm and professional
• Willingness to learn and comply with instructions
• Fluency in English (German language skills are an advantage, but not necessary)
• Ability to understand and respond to the needs of the dog
• Profound understanding of privacy and confidentiality
• Experience in dog grooming would be welcome but is not essential
• Confident and safe driver
• Excellent checkable references

If this sounds of interest, and you meet the essential criteria, please apply within or get in touch to find out more.
