casual dog trainers

Pups4Fun are seeking experienced canine professionals or enthusiasts to join our training team. 

Pups4Fun currently teach between 18-25 classes a week, ranging from puppy classes to Beginners and Intermediate and special interest classes.  Our puppy classes are held indoors at both our Northside and Southside locations, and our adult classes are held at the Canberra Dog Hub, our community based business in Belconnen.  With a packed program planned for 2024, we are looking for new casual trainers to join our team.

Our trainers all have one thing in common, a love for people and dogs and a thirst for knowledge.  While we have well tested instructor training programs and syllabus, we are looking for people who can look outside the box for answers, and who are always looking to learn the next thing to add to their tool box.

Trainers have access to large outdoor training fields, our indoor training centre, as well as equipment including slat mills and agility equipment.
