Cage-Free Dog Boarding Live-in Manager

About us:

Since 2006 Camp Jimmydog LLC has provided the Tucson area with cage free, home style boarding at our beautiful and comfortable home southeast of Tucson. We are free of the kennels, runs and overcrowding that promote stress, unwanted behaviors and overstimulation. We pride ourselves on the relationships we form and personal care we provide for our guests and their people. Our client’s dogs are welcomed into our home and loved and cared for as our own. We ensure that that everyone, from puppies to seniors, receive the care, activity level and individual attention that they require and deserve. We provide space to quietly relax as well as room to run, play and explore, all in a comfortable, safe, fun, home environment. If they sleep in their owner’s bedroom at home, they will sleep in ours.

This position is for a Live-in Manager to take care of the dogs, manage the business effectively and supervise other team members at our new, second location in Vail, Arizona.

Position Summary:


The Manager is a positive, efficient, detail-oriented multi-tasker who will ensure that our second location operates in a smooth, safe and professional manner. This role requires excellent communication skills and the ability to take direction and work independently.

We are looking for a motivated individual that not only loves dogs but possesses the natural ability to work with, understand and communicate with them. We are looking for someone that has experience with a pack of dogs. You must also be able to communicate well with their humans.

The Manager must juggle and prioritize multiple activities, and manage unforeseen events as they happen. Therefore, must be extremely organized and detail oriented.

The right candidate will be able to work as part of a team, communicate effectively, and play an integral part in the future growth of our company. 

The live-in manger will be required to live on-site in a single-family residence set on just over 1 acre in a rural setting with easy access to shopping, I-10 and Tucson. 

We LOVE dogs and enjoy a fun, friendly and comfortable environment, spending our nights in our pj’s cuddling with our sleepover guests. However, this position is much more than just playing with dogs. This is not a 9-5 job, we start our days early and work 7 days a week with possibly up to 15 dogs in the house at one time, keeping every guest safe and happy.  

Experience and Education:

  • Minimum of 4 years dog training/handling/behavioral experience at professional level or at a personal level if extensive, you have worked with professionals, and with multiple dogs. Preferably including multiple dog, pack situations. Certifications and references are a plus.
  • Computer literate. Comfortable with and able to learn and use various software, apps and photo programs as well as Gmail
  • Associates Degree

Due to space considerations, candidates with up to ONE dog of their own will be considered, possibly two if both are 15# or less. They must be vaccinated, spayed/neutered, well socialized, practice “good dog etiquette” and be friendly with people as well as groups of dogs.  

For safety and space reasons, NO cats, NO other types of pets and NO children.  

Compensation:  This is a salaried position that also includes housing, utilities, internet
