I loved my time at PPC
I worked at PPC for three years. I started as a dog walker and quickly moved through the ranks eventually getting promoted to GM. The owner recognizes hard work and dedication; and rewards each employee very generously. They are also the most transparent owner I’ve worked with- and in my position I was kept “in the know” and that was greatly appreciated. At PPC the staff were always first. I found the owner and other managers very respectful, receptive and responsive.
You are part of a great team at Patrick’s Pet Care!
The best part of working here (besides the obvious fun with puppies and kitties) is the people on the team at Patrick’s. The company runs behind a true love for animals that starts with the owner and is embodied by each member of the team.
An active and fun job, with the support and friendship of colleagues and an opportunity to go farther.
I started working at PPC because of a love for canines and animals and my desire to become a dog trainer. PPC realized this desire and potential and gave me the opportunity to attend a dog training academy … PPC has impacted my life by giving me a start in my desired profession and allowing me to work with dogs each day. I have only been in the USA for 7 months and my career is already on the right track thanks to Patrick’s Pet Care and their dog training academy scholarship! It is truly amazing to work for a company that is willing to realize the interest and potential of individuals and help them grow.
