Breeders Veterinary Services (Santa Rosa, CA)

Dr. Randall Popkin is a travelling veterinarian to various dog shows along the West Coast (California, Oregon, Washington) and he is looking for a technician, not necessarily licensed. He is located in Santa Rosa, but you don't necessarily need to relocate there. However, there will be office training in the beginning so it might be advantageous to live not too terribly far. 

The applicant is expected to drive his Trailer/RV to these shows 26 weekends out of the year, which are known well in advance. You will need to have a Class A drivers license, however, he can train you and provide the necessary equipment to help you get the license. You will stay in the RV (40 feet) with Dr. Popkin so you must be comfortable living in close proximity to him. During the week you are expected to complete some office work, which can be done at home once you are fully trained. 

This is a full time position, but has the flexibility to still be employed elsewhere at a normal practice or facility. You can check out his website to see all of the services completed at the dog shows.
