We're always accepting applications for Dog Walkers/Pet Sitters + Seasonal Dog Walkers/Pet Sitters!
Dog Walkers primarily work Monday through Friday between 7AM and 10AM and/or 10 AM and 2 PM. Dog walkers focus their efforts on exercising dogs while their families are at work but may also care for their clients' pets on evenings, weekends and holidays as needed.
Pet Sitters should be available mornings, evenings, at least 2 weekends a month, and holidays to provide care for cats, dogs, equines (horses/donkeys), goats, chickens, reptiles and other animals while their families are traveling. We do not require a minimum number of weekends but pet sitters are expected to be available for most major holidays.
