We want people who share our pet care philosophy and honestly have a genuine love for all pets. It’s a paw-some job and you’ll often pinch yourself thinking, “I can’t believe I’m getting paid to do this!”

Flexibility: Our schedules are different from day to day and come with last minute requests and cancellations. Some days will be busier than others. Meticulous: When caring for client pets it requires you to pay close attention to detail. Clients give us lots of instructions to follow and there is no room for error. Strong Stomach: We see it all and clean up after everything. If you have an aversion to dealing with waste, vomit or removal of half eaten rodents then this isn’t a job for you.

Dog walkers should also be able to handle two large dogs on a walk. Patience: We care for a lot of senior pets and pets with special needs. We may need to assist an elderly pet in getting off a couch or down the stairs, administer medication or just sit and read or snuggle with them.
