Is this the right job for you?
We are looking for people that have two weekdays available to dog walk & pet sit. From time to time we may need some backup assistance on your off days, but you will be notified in advance.
Pet Sitting visits are scheduled throughout the day — in the morning, mid-day, late afternoon, evening, and late evening. You have breaks throughout the day, in between visits.
Your schedule is determined by the visits that our clients book. So your hours will vary from week to week, depending on how many clients schedule. Last minute bookings and changes to your schedule are common because clients sometimes book or cancel visits last minute. You will need to complete last-minute visits scheduled on your days.
Our business is seasonal, we have slow times and busy times. Holidays are always our busiest times. Summertime and the winter holidays are generally busy. September, October, January and February are a bit slower.
We are a mobile pet sitting service so this job requires a lot of driving around town – to and from client’s houses. So, be prepared for that and have a reliable car!
Thanks for the interest and good luck!
