So you think you've got what it takes?
We are always actively looking for passionate humans that share our vision & mission to join us in a fulfilling career, taking Wolfhouse to the world!
We receive hundreds of applications for positions we advertise, every one of those individuals looking for a career with a HUGE difference. That definitely places us in a great position of selecting only the very best for the diverse range of roles we have on campus.
Although we are predominately a place of canine learning, we apply the very same passion to team members’ development. An honest, positive and genuinely passionate culture is what you will find on campus. It’s that same passionate and positive environment we create, that the canine's studying with us, soak up and dish out to their peers!
Those two words, passionate and positive is what drives our focus to create a culture with a firm foundation of positive communication and collaboration.
Recruitment to Wolfhouse is an extensive process that isn’t your ordinary flick through a resume and sit down for an interview.
Two Teams. Collaborating. Creating. Celebrating.
All team members fall into two teams on campus. At a high level, careers within the Adventure team support our dogs to interact with their environment whilst capturing those moments and publishing them to the world. The Academic team are charged with providing our dogs with their education and creating a safe environment to learn!

The most senior and lead canine educator. In a traditional dog training team, this position could also be referred to as the Training Director of Campus. This person is certainly the real deal of dogs. Our walking, talking encyclopedia of dogs is the Yin to the Campus Director’s Yang. This is a Senior Leadership position responsible for canine education and health, and works with the entire team in doing so. They craft, teach, structure and guide dogs, of all walks of life, along with their development plans as they learn week in and week out. The reason why we are All Dog is right here in this senior leadership position. This extraordinary person will have extensive canine educational experience in reactivity, rehabilitation, obedience and complex skill education. Additionally, they will have proven team leadership ability to build and grow team culture and Academic team member development. Given Campus Deans are practically on campus 100% of the time, it is a permanent employment and salaried position.
Senior Campus Teacher
The Senior Campus Teacher position firstly, is a permanent, full time salaried role with the week split between working doggos during the day and running our co-op group glasses at night (not on the same day of course). As a role in-between the Campus Teacher and Campus Dean role, this is very much a more traditional full-time certified dog trainer gig. You work as autonomously as you like with or without the support of the Campus Dean on the program set. At a minimum, we prefer the Certificate III in Dog Behaviour and Training with NDTF and Precise Training (or international equivalent) as an educational platform for this position on top of years of experience in educating dogs of all breeds and behaviours. However, given the seniority of the role we have indicated that the Cert III is preferred not required, acknowledging that a careers worth of experience training dogs under multiple trainers can more than make up for the formal qualification achievement. As a Senior Campus Teacher, the training wheels are well and truly off. In completing the educational plans set for each student you will be expected to achieve real, measurable development results as directed by the Campus Dean. You'll work and teach dogs during the day, consult with the families on exit and lead classes teaching families under an industry leading curriculum.
The Campus Teacher position introduces leadership and management responsibilities of both team and canines and is a casual employment position. Campus Teachers provide on the ground handling and education to all pupils inclusive of those attending on adventure days as well as those pups on obedience and behaviour modification programs under the direction of the Campus Dean. This also includes educating both pups and owners during our on campus Co-Op courses. At a minimum, the Certificate III in Dog Behaviour and Training with NDTF and Precise Training (or international equivalent) is required for this position on top of adequate handling experience with various dogs and displayed development areas/behaviours. Executing education in areas of canine reactivity, rehabilitation, social skills, obedience and complex skills is not the limit to the skills requirement. Campus Teachers also work with the Campus Dean on the development of Student Teachers and the canine safety and education component of the Adventure Team's role too. Campus Teachers are also required in the check out process to work with parents on developing their skills and continuing the learning at home!
This role is for those people with aspirations in becoming a fully fledged Campus Teacher (certified dog trainer). Student Teachers also requires the Certificate III of Dog Behaviour and Training with NDTF and Precise Training (or international equivalent) to either be booked, in progress or completed. This is the minimum requirement to act as your foundation in canine education learning. Certificates simply in the care of animals or only in one disciple of canine education are not accepted as equal. We prefer this certificate as this is the only recognised certificate dedicated to the education and psychology of canines across all disciplines. You will work with the Campus Teachers and Campus Dean as you assist in their objectives of delivering canine education and structure! Learning dog behaviour and education in this role begins with exposure to territory safety; a masterclass in beginning to understand canines. This is a development position designed to focus our resources on developing you into a Campus Teacher, so aspirations to grow into that role is a must. This is a casual employment position.

There are small retail and administration components, but mostly your time will be spent on campus, maintaining perfection and cleanliness in the campus environment!
