Interested? Read on! < === What IS dog walking, anyway? If you live in NYC, then you know that these small boxes we call "apartments" can have a dog feeling cooped up, bored, and desperate for fresh air! For our clients who work long hours - that's almost everyone in this town - we provide a mid-day outing for their pup, either alone or with 1-2 buddies, so they can get outside, get some exercise, and do their business. We also provide New Puppy Support for potty training, socialization, cat sitting services and morning, evening, weekend and holiday pet care. I've seen those guys getting dragged along by 10 dogs down the sidewalk. Is that what dog walkers do? Right, some dog walkers work for companies that do what's called "pack" or "group" walks. These are often the same jobs that pay a flat hourly wage, regardless of how many dogs are being walked at a time or in a day, and regardless of how far away the dogs are from each other. By contrast, we walk a dog with one or two of his buddies who live nearby. This provides socialization for our pups, but in a safe, controlled environment where all our dogs can be watched carefully, attended to as individuals, and our staff are not being dragged along by packs of dogs all day. Ours is a very different approach, much closer to childcare. Sounds nice, but can I actually make good money doing this? Yes, absolutely. Most of our Full Time Caretakers make between 2k-3500k per month, depending on where they work, and how much time they are willing to commit to our pups and kitties. Apply for more information! REQUIREMENTS Of course, first and foremost you must love dogs & cats. (We assume that you do, or you wouldn't be reading all of this!). But beyond that, we look for someone who can master the THREE ASPECTS OF THIS JOB: + Be great with the PETS! Lots of people say they love cats 'n dogs, we like to see that someone really exudes that "I'm crazy about animals" vibe. The kind of person who stops to pet every dog on the sidewalk, and then has to remember to look up, say hi to the owner. (if this is you, we want to meet you, pronto!) + Be comfortable communicating with PEOPLE! We do lots of emailing and texting among our staff and clients, so we are looking for a new hire who can get back to us promptly, courteously, and professionally. Goes without saying, but this business in built on TRUST, and communication is the key to that! + Be adept at using TECHNOLOGY! You'll work off of an app which keeps track of your jobs each day, your monthly schedule and your earnings. Applicants need to have a signal-enabled smartphone (a phone that can function even with no available wifi) with enough data to handle the amount of pictures, emailing and texting we do each day. Your basic iPhone 5-7 plus with 128g should be sufficient, so long as it has enough data on the plan. Android phones are good, too. In addition to these three elements, some other basic job requirements: - US citizens or legally authorized to work in the US for at least the next 12 months - over 21 years of age - able to pass a background check - local full-time resident of NYC - able to receive payment "on the books" - able to commit to this position for 12 months from date of hire - available for FT hours M-F 10AM-6PM, every weekday, plus some nights and weekends as requested in advance, and as available.THINK YOU MIGHT JUST LOVE WORKING WITH ANIMALS ALL DAY? WANT TO TRADE IN (HUMAN) CO-WORKERS FOR CATS AND DOGS? You've come to the right place! APPLY TODAY!
