Windy City Dog Walkers is Chicago's most trusted dog walking company. We have been serving Chicago since 2002 and were voted "Best of Chicago" in 2014. We are a "dog walker focused company" with excellent reviews on Glassdoor! We are an A+ company because we only work with A+ walkers. We focus on smaller neighborhood routes, walking on leash with one household's pets at a time, providing the same dog walker every day and helping clients with training reinforcement. Our client's dogs thrive with consistency and we find this system provides our walkers with reliable income that is more predictable when compared to other dog walking services. Many of our walkers walk with us for over two years and we promote from within. If you love working with dogs but would like to work without the on-demand nature of dog walker apps - this is the opportunity you have been looking for!
Job Summary:This is a physical job designed for true dog lovers. You will be walking independently with our client's dogs on leash. The route is normally within one neighborhood but you will need to travel to multiple households during the day. Most dog walkers typically walk 6-8 miles each day. We place great emphasis on safety, customer service and self-reliance. Most walkers work 20-25 hours a week but a walker can work 30 hours or more if they are ready for the opportunity.
Route Details:We are currently hiring dog walkers for route building opportunities in many of Chicago's neighborhoods. What is a route builder? This is a person who joins our team, ready to help us meet client demand and to assist other walkers. This is a role where you can be working as little as one or two hours a day for the first few weeks. Once the client list has been established, you should have a more traditional dog walking route working from about 10am to 4pm with about 8-12 individual walks per day. You can supplement your route with walks from other walkers who are requesting assistance. Please keep in mind because you would be building a route and working a shorter schedule, payroll can be lower for the first few weeks.
