We hire only those that can uphold our high standards of service. If you understand the serious nature of taking care of other people's pets, are passionate about animal care, love the outdoors, enjoy the freedom of working independently and love to drive, this could be the perfect position for you!

Join Our Team!

There are THREE positions that we are always accepting resumes for:


1. DOG WALKER: consistently available 10:00 am-3:00 pm, Mon-Fri or available 5;00 pm-9:30 pm, Mon-Fri. for dog walking.

During this time you are required to travel to clients homes and walk their dogs for a specified amount of time.


2. PET SITTER: consistently available at any/all times, and availability to work at least 2 weekends a month. During your scheduled shifts, you will travel to clients homes and take care of their pets including scooping litter boxes, walking dogs, feed and administer medications. This role is great for someone with a very flexible, open schedule. With that said, you will be given a dedicated day off each week.

 

3. OVERNIGHT PET SITTER: this position requires your stay overnight in the clients home. Overnights begin at 8:00 pm and end by 8:00 am. You will be required to travel to clients homes and take care of evening and morning responsibilities for pets. This position requires availability all 7 days of the weeks.


Availability

  • Open positions are part time, with the ability to extend hours if desired as you gain experience as a Professional Pet Sitter. 
  • Number of hours will vary based on customer requests, so a flexible schedule is essential for these positions. 
  • The best candidates are those with full availability, 7 days a week. However, this level of availability is not required. Those with mid-day availability (10:00 am to 4:00 pm) or those looking for evening and weekend work are encouraged to apply.
  • Please do not apply if you are out of town for most Holidays. This position requires you to be very flexible. As pet sitters and dog walkers, we adjust our schedules to make sure our client's pets are able to receive the best care when their owners aren't home!
  • Our sitters must be willing to have a flexible schedule with varying pay. This is a part-time job that provides supplemental income. There are breaks in-between pet sitting/dog walking assignments. Some days are heavy with assignments while other days are lighter. 
  • This position is not for someone that is looking for a set amount of pay each week. That said, we will give you as many work assig​nments as you are willing to help with. We are a growing company with consistent clients that need our help!
