Job Description

If you love the outdoors, have a heart for animals, are extremely reliable, enjoy working solo, and have a knack for customer service- this may be your dream job! We are a small local business offering pet care services for clients in the Oakland, Piedmont, Berkeley, and Montclair areas. We pay by the job- so instead of getting hourly no matter how many mutts you wrangle, the more dogs you walk at a time the more you make! We are searching for two folks with a zeal for life and the outdoors to commit to our team. 

The perfect person will...

  1. Have a reliable vehicle that can hold up to six dogs. Hatchbacks, SUVs and trucks are preferred. A 4 door sedan will not work for this job.
  2. Be available to work during some holidays and times when everyone likes to travel. December is our busiest season. 
  3. Enjoy working rain or shine walking dogs from roughly 9am-3pm M-F Be available Mon- Fri. We are currently hiring two walkers: Tue/ Thur/ Fri in Berkeley Tue/ Thur/ Fri in Oakland. The Oakland walking job is less demanding, the Berkeley job will requires some experience with dogs as the packs are larger. This is a position that will grow over time. You must be able to trade shifts with other walkers so everyone can enjoy a flexible schedule! This is on leash dog walking, please be physically capable of handling up to 7 dogs at a time, some of whom are over 50 lb.s. (We will train you how to do this)
  4. Love dogs! We prefer someone with experience working with dogs in some capacity, or at minimum has owned several personal dogs.
  5. Be available to stay at client homes for anywhere between 1 day to several weeks while they travel. Clients travel for anywhere between a few days to several weeks, you choose which jobs you'd like. This is a great opportunity for people who write or work remotely to get some quiet time away from home and make extra cash. 
  6. Live in the Oakland/ Berkeley area. This job already involves a lot of driving and we value sustainability and hiring people from our community. 
  7. Be able to commit for a minimum of 1 year. Our training is extensive and ongoing, and you will build personal relationships with your clients and their dogs.  The longer you work the more clients you take on. 

***If you have your own pooch: rad, awesome, great! You can bring them dog walking with you, but not to overnight jobs. Please consider who will care for them if you were staying at client homes.
