At Citizen Hound, employees have numerous growth and development opportunities through uniquely crafted training. Apply today and grow your daily happiness as well as your professional skills!

 

General Summary

Your primary mission in this position would be to empower our current staff to perform to the best of their abilities and reach their maximum potential. Essentially you'd be a coach to them. Good coaches change the game, but great coaches change a life. We believe in our company being a place where people can improve their life, both personally and professionally, even though we're just a dog walking company.

You would lead our team of 9 walkers and engage with our 150+ clients while working directly with the owner and business manager to ensure the company runs smoothly. You’d be a part of our management triad. Our manager's mission statement reads, "You grow a company by growing people, and our complementary management triad is focused doggedly on growth, first in ourselves, then in others, as we dig up happiness everywhere we go."

Do you meet the bulleted requirements listed below in bold? If so, skip to the end. 

Does work from home have you burnt out? 

Get let go from a job you hated?

Fresh out of college and have no idea what to do with your degree?

Studying for a grad degree and need to pay the bills?

Grow up with a family dog but can't have one here in The City? 

Have a dog but don't have the time to give it the attention and exercise it needs? 

Simply love our fluffy, shaggy, large and small four legged barking friends?

Then we sure do have an offer for you: walk dogs. Seriously, it'll change your life. Your mind will be opened and your soul unleashed. It's the best job you'll ever have. Keep reading!

We are always looking to meet quality candidates who could effectively lead off leash groups of dogs through parks and beaches with us. Teacher, dog trainer, coach, boot camp instructor, friend, confidant...we wear a lot of hats with these dogs, and sometimes they eat them! What we're looking for are people who'd fit our team well, who love dogs, who like being outdoors, who are responsible and caring, amiable and professional at work. If that's you, you're in.

REQUIREMENTS:


  • Own your own SUV/van/wagon/truck? (Sorry no exceptions, unless you buy one. I wish we had company vehicles, but at least we pay a lot better than the companies that do!)

  • Live in SF, Daly City, Pacifica? (Sorry no BRIDGE commuters)

  • No previous experience required! Training and permits provided. 

  • Do you LOVE dogs? 

  • Athletic, energetic and looking to stay fit? 

  • Have a smart phone and know how to use it?

  • Able to commit to a year or more? 

  • Friendly, outgoing, and customer savvy? 


  • Have extreme extreme patience?

  • Eager to learn? To teach?

  • Ready to become a professional at this job?

  • Are you a team player? 

If you can rightfully answer "yes" to each and every of the preceding questions, stop what you're doing and apply now. These are all "must have" qualities to keep our company at the forefront of the industry. Even though these are seemingly basic, they are at the heart of what we do. Be not mistaken, we are top tier and need you to be too. We won #1 Dog Walking company in SF and #1 Dog Walker in the Bay Area in three separate publications, multiple years. We want you to help us keep kicking ass.

MONEY:


  • Trainee - $20/hr

  • Dogtoral Candidate - $20.50/hr

  • Puppy Professor - $21

  • Dean Of Dogs - $22/hr

After the one year mark you're eligible for salary:


  • $32,500 - $45,000 plus 15 days paid vacation each year!

Additionally, pet sitting and off hours walks can make you HUNDREDS in cash weekly. Read details below for more info.

(If you want to skip the deets and apply already just skip to the last paragraph!) 

Money Details:

You shadow for a week, starting at $20/hr. Essentially you do nothing but ride along, meet the dogs and coworkers, work with your trainer at cafes, and learn the basics. Not bad at all.

Week #2 is a bit different. You start picking up your own packs of dogs and meet up with me and other staff at our walking locations - typically Crissy Field and the forest at the Presidio. You start keeping track of your mileage and will be reimbursed gallon for gallon. You learn. You're bumped up to $20.50 for 2nd leg of training, and after your training is complete, typically the first few months of employ, $21/hour and employee status, not independent contractor like some other jobs posted in the industry. 

You'll get your dog walker certification and permit through us ($800-$1000 you don't have to spend) and you're ready to go. 

The longer you stick with it, the more you involve yourself in our company mission, the more you demonstrate your willingness to work hard and grow professionally, the more you learn, the more you earn. Many people make salary before 1 year, and all positions will earn more as the company grows. There's training at every level, even at the top where we'll prepare you for leadership roles. It may seem like only a dog walking job, but things you learn here will undoubtedly serve you in subsequent jobs and careers.

On top of your daily shifts are near daily completely optional opportunities for private walks and pet sitting. Some choose to take on daily private walks, expanding on the general 6 hour day. Sometimes people just take one-off private walks. Pet sitting is routine and people can earn much more than just their regular pay by pet sitting, and it's the easiest money you've ever made. 

Shift Details:

Typical shifts last five to six hours Monday-Friday, you start in the late morning and are home by early evening. If you want to have a second evening job this is perfect to take up all your afternoons. For us, there is no such thing as working nights, weekends, or holidays. However, good extra income is available to you through boarding, solo walks, and eventually private lessons on your own personal schedule as needed by our clientele. Most employees here eventually take on an ongoing private walk either before or after work to expand pay. If you can sit dogs you can make lots of cash.  

Who We Are:

We are all roughly 20-35 years old. We get along great, going out for drinks after work sometimes, getting together for team outings, or just hanging out in the field every day with the dogs. I believe who you work with is one of the most important things in your life. You spend so much time at work you better love it. http://www.citizenhoundsf.com/the-team-1 

**********Best Way To Apply***********

Most importantly include your telephone # so I can call! Even better, drop me a text or shoot me a call once you've sent your email to ensure I get back to you posthaste. 

Please make sure you meet our bullet-pointed requirements, like having a vehicle and living in SF (or Daly City). 

We look forward to hearing from you.
