Do you love to be greeted with a wagging tail? How about with a sweet little meow and a purr? Do you love to be outside in the fresh air? Would you enjoy a flexible schedule between the hours of 8am-6pm? Yes to all? This job is for you!! Four Seasons For Paws is an established and well-loved pet sitting and dog walking company, and we are seeking exceptional dog walkers and pet visitors to add to our great staff. Get paid to play with fur-babies, get exercise, and have fun! We love what we do and we can’t wait to share the experience with you!
***Please note: You must have a deep love for animals, reliable transportation, and a smart phone to apply for this position! You must also be able to self-manage and be comfortable walking and driving in inclement weather.***
· Your time will be spent walking dogs, playing with and giving love to animals, feeding animals, cleaning up any messes you (or they) have made (counter and spoons cleaned), daily cleaning of dishes, scooping the litter box daily, mail and paper pickup, watering for indoor/outdoor plants, laundering soiled bedding and blankets if needed, and ensuring that the client homes are secure. An online journal with details of the visit for the client including pictures will need to be completed for each visit.
· You will be required to read all client and pet information and care instructions in our software before the first visit and or meet and greet so you can ask questions about any instructions that aren't clear to you.
· Dog walks and pet sitting visits are usually done at approximately the same time each day to maintain continuity for the pets we care for. Visit lengths are typically 30 minutes for walks and care visits. 45 and 60 minute visits are also an option for clients.
· You will initially start out walking one or two dogs at a time. If you want to walk more, we can work you up to three to five dogs at a time. We at Four Seasons For Paws do not walk more than five dogs at one time. You will not be required to walk more dogs than you are comfortable with. All dogs must be leashed during the walk. No exceptions.
· We respect client confidentiality. Bringing friends or children to the house or telling anyone that a particular client is away are not acceptable actions.
· Four Seasons For Paws will schedule pet care visits based on your availability. If time off is needed, it will need to be requested in advance. A meet and greet may or may not need to be coordinated for you and the client. However, this position is flexible. We can accommodate time off when needed and existing job schedules.
· Assigned visits are typically 15 minutes or less from your home and to the next visit.
The pay schedule is as follows:
$15.00 / hr
$0.15 per mile reimbursement for miles driven in between visits.
