====> LOVE Cats & Dogs? Interested? Read on! <===

What  IS dog walking, anyway? If you live in NYC, then you know that these small boxes we call "apartments" can have a dog feeling cooped up, bored, and desperate for fresh air! For our clients who work long hours - that's almost everyone in this town - we provide a mid-day outing for their pup, either alone or with 1-2 buddies, so they can get outside, get some exercise, and do their business. We also provide New Puppy Support for potty training, socialization, cat sitting services and morning, evening, weekend and holiday pet care.

I've seen those guys getting dragged along by 10 dogs down the sidewalk. Is that what dog walkers do? Right, some dog walkers work for companies that do what's called "pack" or "group" walks. These are often the same jobs that pay a flat hourly wage, regardless of how many dogs are being walked at a time or in a day, and regardless of how far away the dogs are from each other. By contrast, we walk a dog with one or two of his buddies who live nearby. This provides socialization for our pups, but in a safe, controlled environment where all our dogs can be watched carefully, attended to as individuals, and our staff are not being dragged along by packs of dogs all day. Ours is a very different approach, much closer to childcare.

Sounds nice, but can I actually make good money doing this? Yes, absolutely. Most of our Full Time Caretakers make between 2k-3500k per month, depending on where they work, and how much they want to work. PLEASE NOTE, however, we are still just starting to recover from the pandemic, and you would likely start out first PT, and grow to FT within a month or so. 

REQUIREMENTS

First and foremost you must love dogs & cats. (We assume that you do, or you wouldn't be reading this!) ... but beyond that, we look for someone who can master the THREE ASPECTS OF THIS JOB:

  1. Be great with the PETS! Lots of people say they love animals, but it takes a special kind dedication to care for animals as your JOB. Neither the snow, nor rain, nor hissing scaredy-cat nor gloom of night.. nothing will keep you from getting to the pets in your care! Are you the kind of person who stops to pet all the dogs, but sometimes forgetting to say hello to the human walking them? WE WANT TO MEET YOU!
  2. Be comfortable communicating with PEOPLE! We do lots of emailing and texting among our staff and clients, so we are looking for a new hire who can get back to us swiftly and professionally. Goes without saying, but this business in built on TRUST, and communication is the key to that!
  3. Be adept at using TECHNOLOGY! You'll use our scheduling app which keeps track of your jobs and earnings. Applicants need to have a signal-enabled smartphone (a phone that can function even with no available wifi) with enough data to handle the amount of pictures, emailing and texting we do each day. Your basic iPhone 6 plus with 128g would be about the minimal requirements there, perhaps. Any smartphone with a robust data plan will work!

In addition to these three elements, some other basic job requirements : - US citizens or legally authorized to work in the US for at least the next 12 months - over 21 years of age - able to pass a drug test - local full-time resident of NYC - able to receive payment "on the books" - able to commit to this position for 12 months minimum from date of hire - available for PT hours 11-5 Mon-Friday, or FT hours 10-6 Mon-Friday,  some nights and weekends as requested in advance, and as available, plus one major holiday (Christmas or Thanksgiving).

**THINK YOU MIGHT JUST LOVE WORKING WITH ANIMALS FOR A LIVING? WANT TO TRADE IN (HUMAN) CO-WORKERS FOR CATS AND DOGS? You've come to the right place! APPLY TODAY!
