ABOUT S'WOOFT

The mission of S’wooft is to offer loving, reliable, and professional pet care in far northwest Chicago and surrounding areas.We do this through:


  • Hiring the best staff, who are fully screened, qualified, and trained 

  • Offering our staff competitive pay, benefits, and a respectful work environment

  • Continually training our staff in Pet First Aid/CPR and other skills that will allow them to offer excellent service to the pets we serve

  • Offering clients consistency in coverage for all daily walks, with additional coverage for off hours needs

  • Maintaining professionalism in all communications, policies, and practices

We specialize in daily dog walking, vacation care, and cat care—all of the ways pet owners need to be able to rely on someone when it comes to the daily care of their pets. Families trust us with their fur babies and their homes, so we're careful to thoroughly screen all of our staff with a full background check, professional references, and shadowing, to see if they have the same abounding love for pets that we do. Rather than a pet service based primarily on convenience, where the quality of staff may be inconsistent, we pride ourselves on each individual who makes up this team. We also strive to build community, both within Team S’wooft and among the greater Chicago area pet community. We do this through team outings, use of an ongoing chat app (Slack), community events, and our various marketing efforts. 

S’wooft is an equal opportunity employer. This means that we select, place, train, and promote the most qualified team members based on relevant factors such as experience, work quality, attitude, and availability. We do not consider race, color, religion, age, gender identification, marital status, sexual orientation, pregnancy status, veteran status, national origin, ancestry, ethnicity, genetic information, order of protection status, status as a victim or perceived victim of domestic or sexual violence, status as a qualified handicapped or disabled individual, or any other proscribed factor in our hiring, salary/wage, promotion, or termination decisions, in accordance with applicable state and federal laws. 

Please apply online if you are interested in this opportunity. We look forward to hearing from you!

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

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?

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?

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:


  • Week 1: $16/hr - classroom style training

  • Week 2: $20/hr - Trainee

  • 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 - $36,000 plus 15 days paid vacation each year!

Additionally pet sitting can make you THOUSANDS in cash. This can double your income. 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, taking in $16/hour. 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, so we up you to our training wage, $20/hour, the high end of industry standards for starting pay. 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 just after 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 double their income 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 THOUSANDS in cash. I made over $8,000 pet sitting in June and July alone!!!!!

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.

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:


You can make a lot more doing this than you think. The wages during business hours are only half the story.



  • Week 1: min wage - classroom style training

  • Week 2: $20/hr - Trainee

  • Dogtoral Candidate - $20.50/hr

  • Puppy Professor - $21

  • Dean Of Dogs - $22/hr


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


Gas is reimbursed. We offer tons of cash bonuses for things like signing up a new client or getting featured in a positive review.


Additionally pet sitting can make you THOUSANDS in cash. This can double your income. Read details below for more info.

STEADY RAISES:

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

You shadow for a week, taking in minimum wage for one week only. 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, so we up you to our training wage, $20/hour, the high end of industry standards for starting pay. 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 just after 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 double their income by pet sitting, and it's the easiest money you've ever made.

THE HOURS:

Typical shifts last 6-8 hours Monday-Friday. 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 THOUSANDS in cash. I legit made $8,000 in pet sitting in June and July alone!!!!

THE TEAM:

We are all about 20-35. 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.

HOW TO APPLY:

SIMPLY DESCRIBE YOUR INTEREST IN A BRIEF, CONVINCING EMAIL THAT GRABS OUR ATTENTION AND SPEAKS TO WHY YOU WOULD WANT THE POSITION AND BE THE PERFECT FIT FOR IT! This email is very important to our selection process, and nobody gets through without one. 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.
