Weekday FT/PT shifts scheduled between 6am-8pm M-F and 6am-7pm on Sat/Sun. 

Midday Dog Walkers (part-time)

Dog walking is a great way for individuals to get some great exercise and be able to enjoy the outdoors all while caring for man’s best friend.  Dog walks are scheduled M-F between the hours of 10am-4pm, so candidates should have similar availability.  Candidates should also be confident in their dog handling skills and be comfortable caring for dogs of all sizes, breeds and temperament.  Candidates must be able to track their schedule in a calendar or planner, be accessible by and responsive to email on a daily basis, and have their own reliable insured vehicle and current driver’s license.  Dog walks are assigned within a 5-mile radius of their home but candidates must live within one of our service areas.

Pet Sitters (part-time)

Pet Sitting is a great way to supplement a full-time income and also works well paired with dog walking.  When clients head out of town and can’t take their pets with them, this is a great option for them.  Care is extended primarily to dogs and cats but can include care of more unique domestic animals.  Visits are conducted between the hours of 6-9am and 6-9pm with occasional midday visits between 10am-4pm during the weekend.  Candidates must have availability during the morning, evening and weekend timeframes in order to be considered.

Shifts are Saturdays and Sundays either 8:45am-1:45pm or 1:30-6:30pm.

Office Managers (full-time and part-time)
