Company Overview:

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.

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.

  • Perform safe neighborhood walks on leash with one household's pet(s) at a time

  • Practice time management to stay on schedule

  • Communicate with the office and clients via voice/text and email

  • You must be at least 18 years of age

- We prefer that you own a reliable source of transportation such as an insured car or bicycle (Applicants who prefer to walk the route are encouraged to apply but only some routes are available)


  • Be prepared for all weather conditions as this is a year round position - you will be working outdoors

  • Legally authorized to work in the United States

  • Willing to submit to a background check if a position is offered

Qualifications and Skills:


  • Knowledge of dogs breeds and behavior can be helpful but not required

  • The ability to make quick decisions to keep dogs and walkers safe

  • Capable of walking more than one dog at a time

  • Comfortable walking dogs with special medical or behavior concerns

  • Time management is a critical skill to ensure on time arrivals for all dog walks

  • Bonuses paid for any walks performed with multiple dogs in a home or any optional non-peak hour walks (evenings, weekends, house sits, etc.)

  • Paid orientation process

  • Free Cubs Tickets and fun team building events

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.

We do this through team outings, use of an ongoing chat app (Slack), community events, and our various marketing efforts.

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.
