We often hear from our clients that our team of dog walkers and pet sitters is truly special.

As we grow, we have dog walking and pet sitting jobs available to fellow pet lovers who want to turn their passion for pets into paychecks. Learn more about our employment opportunities and service areas below. And, make sure you follow our hiring steps to be considered. We look forward to hearing from you!

Dog Walking & Pet Sitting: Flexibility

Dog Walking and Pet Sitting is a great way to fill in scheduling availability without having to commit to specific daily work schedules. Unlike retail, restaurant, or office jobs, dog walkers and pet sitters work when their clients need them. They care for pets on their schedule and manage their own time and route. Because of the flexibility it affords, dog walking and pet sitting are ideal jobs for parents, students, retirees, and more.

As long as you have a smartphone and are self-motivated, dog walking and pet sitting can be a great addition to other part-time work and commitments. And, even though our dog walkers and pet sitters work independently and at their own pace, however, we provide local field support, on-the-job training, and equipment to ensure that the job is enjoyable and safe for all involved.

Dog Walking & Pet Sitting: Fun

As animal lovers, we have a hard time imagining a better job. Dog walkers and pet sitters engage, play, and snuggle with dogs, cats, and small mammals. The majority of our employees spend their days working with dogs offering dog walking services and dog hiking adventures. They get exercise, spend time outdoors, and wear comfy clothes and shoes while performing their duties. Other employees focus on cat and small animal care, ensuring pets whose families are traveling are looked after.

No matter the pet or responsibility, dog walking and pet sitting is a fun way to earn a paycheck. Speaking of paychecks, our employees receive weekly paychecks, holiday pay, and bonuses. We also provide paid training and, especially over holiday periods, dog walkers and pet sitters can earn generous client tips and gratuity for a job well done.

Dog Walking & Pet Sitting: Supplemental Income

Dog walking and pet sitting may be a great way to supplement your income. We are currently hiring dog walkers and pet sitters. We look for pet lovers who have experience caring for pets or are open to learning about them.

Whether you’ve grown up around cats and dogs or have never had a pet in your life, we offer thorough training to ensure that our employees are prepared for anything. We take our dog walker and pet sitters’ safety very seriously and vet new clients very carefully. Supplementing your income doesn’t have to be stressful or exhausting. We’ll work around your schedule, set you up for success, and support you so that you can thrive in your position.
