Job Description for Dog Bather

Dog bathers work in boutiques that specialize in dog grooming, as well as kennels, pet stores, and even veterinary clinics. These pet care specialists assist in the grooming operation by performing the sometimes difficult task of bathing dogs of all sizes and dispositions. One of the main requirements to be a dog bather is being an animal lover in general. Even calm, obedient dogs can become unpredictable around baths and water, and it is up to the dog bather to control the animal in a respectful, non-binding way to perform the bathing and cleaning of the pet. The dog bather will typically work deliberately and speak comfortingly to the animal, offering praise and positive reinforcement for calm behavior.
