Canine Kitchen Cleaner

Pet-Friendly Kitchen Design: How to Design for Dogs at Home


Objective: To assist the Dog Care Team in their daily role of washing food bowls, water bowls, and toys.  To help maintain the cleanliness of the Canine Kitchen.   To assist with keeping the enrichment freezer full.


Each day, the staff members of the Dog Care Team are tasked with cleaning all food bowls, water bowls, and toys for every dog in their assigned room.  This task can slow down operations on the dog team as the staff is also tasked with inside and outside cleaning, walking high level dogs, and the processes required to get dogs ready for adoption.  A volunteer helping to fill this role would give each member of the dog team an estimated extra hour each day to drive those processes.
