Drombeg Golden Retrievers is a top show kennel that has been breeding and showing top quality show and pet Golden Retrievers for more than 20 years. You can find our dogs winning in many shows across Europe. We strive for breed quality, health and exceptional temperaments meaning many pet owners return to us for a new puppy when their dog is enjoying its older years. We believe that we give a wonderful opportunity to learn about breeding, grooming, showing and all day to day activities involved with a busy show kennel. Our work experience placements live within our cottage, sharing meal times and our living space, but have their own private room and internet access. Placements between 6 months to 1 year is desireable and we feel that this gives a really good opportunity to learn a substantial amount about the well being, health and development of pedigree dogs. Day to day activities include feeding, cleaning and exercising Golden Retrievers, learning about all aspects of stud work, breeding and showing. Occasionally, you will be required to help with the whelping and rearing of puppies. Applicants should have a mature attitude, be able to work responsibly, be highly trustworthy and have plenty of common sense. Experience of working with animals is needed and any experience of working in a similar kennel environment would be advantageous. We are located in the West of Ireland, in a very rural setting close to the shores of two huge lakes (Corrib and Mask) and beautiful forests, therefore this position would suit a country loving person who enjoys the peace and tranquility of country life. Galway is our nearest town and is approx 45 minutes by car, there are two small villages (Cong, Clonbur) about 5 minutes drive away.
