We are a dedicated team of animal lovers located in Boston's Back Bay and we are looking to add a highly motivated individual to our small but thriving pet-sitting company. The Back Bay is a hotbed for pet ownership and our clients love our model of consistent daily dog walks & cat visits by the same pet-sitter. With this position, you can expect to work Monday thru Friday, approx. 10am to 4pm, with a steady lineup of dog walks and occasional cat visits if desired. We work in all forms of weather, and we operate entirely on foot, so a jovial sense of humor about an "office" that is both exposed & mobile will take you far in this line of work.
This job demands a personality that excels in interacting with dogs. It is also a customer service job at its very heart, since our human clients expect the highest level of care for their beloved pets. However, ask any of us and we will quickly tell you that this is one of the most satisfying and joyful jobs you can ever hope to find!
You might consider applying if:
1. You are seeking a full time position with immediate availability.
2. You hold a bachelor's degree.
3. You are capable of walking multiple miles per day, usually 10+ miles daily.
4. You love dogs. You want to play with them, but also possess the patience and prudence to handle all personalities you will encounter.
5. You have formal animal care experience or, at the very least, informal personal experience.
No vehicle required, but you should consider how quickly & easily you can commute to the Back Bay neighborhood.
Thank you for considering joining us, we look forward to hearing from you. This posting is for serious, professional responses only. If you reply with an e-mail introduction and an attached resume, we can begin reviewing you as a candidate.
We would like a new pet-sitter in training by September.
Have a great day!
