Do you love animals and exercise, and hate being cooped up inside all day? Dog walking might be the perfect career for you!

About us:

We are a professional dog walking and pet sitting company growing our team. We are hiring a part-time walker/sitter to work at least 5 days per week (although schedule varies). We train new walkers for approximately 2 weeks (paid). Immediate start if possible.

We have been in business for over 2 years and are growing fast. Currently, we have 3 employees and over 100 clients. Dogs range from tiny “toy” breeds to 100+ lbs and strong/energetic. All of our services are private (meaning no walking a pack of dogs from several households). This is not a boarding facility. We travel to each client’s home and take care of the pets on the premises. Typical visits last 20-30 minutes. Many clients require a brisk walk, although others request fetch in the yard or indoor play. Feeding, fresh water, liter box cleaning, and medication administration are also provided. We also provide over-night sitting, where the sitter stays at the home over night. Occasionally, we transport pets to the groomer or vet. We also provide house sitting services and poop scooping.

We service Pequannock, Pompton Plains, Wayne, Riverdale, Bloomingdale, Haskell, Butler, Kinnelon, Montville, Pinebrook, Towaco, and Lincoln Park, so it is preferable that you live in one of those towns, or very close by.

Requirements:

1- Experience with dogs and other animals. Personal experience okay, but professional experience (walker, vet assistant, shelter volunteer, etc.) is a plus. Must love dogs, cats, and other pets.

2- Must live in or near our service area.

3- Must be available Monday and Friday from 10-4, some weekends and holidays. You must also be available other days of the week and weekend (the schedule is not yet settled for our new sitter, so there is still some flexibility, but you must be available Monday and Friday, and at least every other weekend).

4- Must have reliable transportation. This means your own vehicle with insurance and a drivers license.

5- Must have a cell phone. Smart phone preferred, but a tablet with your own data plan will suffice. Must be willing to use your personal phone to review your schedule and communicate with clients during work.

6- Must consent to a background check, provide references, and sign a confidentiality/non-compete agreement.

7- Must be reliable, punctual, able to work independently and able to follow directions.

8- You MUST be able to handle strenuous physical activity and be comfortable with dogs of all sizes and comfortable handling multiple dogs at one time. Some of our clients are over 100 lbs and you will be expected to walk several miles per shift. Most of our time is spent outside, so you must be tolerant of all weather conditions.
