Job Description

Recess With Steph is hiring! Looking for a Contract Dog Walker

to help with an expanding dog walking service.

Who are we looking for?

The ideal candidate would be a graduate of dogTEC’s Dog Walking Academy, the SF/SPCA Academy for Dog Trainers or similar program, and have some knowledge and background in pack management and humane-based training methods. This is a great opportunity for a recent graduate who has a desire to get his/her foot in the door and expand their knowledge of pet dog training and pack dynamics. Although experience is a plus, the willingness to learn and expand your knowledge around dogs and pack dynamics is just as important – with many years experience running SF Puppy Prep and teaching dog training classes at the SF SPCA under my belt, I love to teach, mold, and help newbies learn the trade of caring for and exercising dogs!

Contract Dog Walker:

Walking Shifts: (after an initial training period)

  • Open to full-time or part-time shifts: Monday-Friday (or any mix of days during the work week), 9:30am-2:30pm (I offer some flexibility on these hours as well)
  • 60 minute play group in private, fully fenced outdoor play space in Montara
  • Pick up and drop off of between 6-8 dogs from homes in San Francisco, plus drive time to Montara

Wage: paid per dog @ 60% our daily rate ranging from $27/dog to $35/dog (Full time rate is $30/outing; Part-time rate is $35/outing; some clients have a discounted rate)

Job Requirements:

  • Must have a valid California Drivers License and an excellent driving record.
  • Must have your own vehicle suitable for dog walking.
  • Must have or be willing to invest in a business license, your own business insurance.
  • Experience not necessary but a definite PLUS.
  • Must have a basic understanding and adhere to humane based training methods; or be willing to learn these methods on the job
