We are seeking responsible candidates for the position of Pet Expert. Candidates are not expected to be pet experts at the time of hire as animal expertise will be taught during intensive training and on-boarding process.

Our expectations for our new hires include:

  • enthusiasm for joining a dynamic team building a successful business for the long-term
  • willingness to use own car, bike, smart phone with data plan, and computer for work activities
  • experience with and enjoyment for customer service and sales
  • working well on own (self-starter) but also communicating often and well with management and coworkers
  • flexible schedule

Pet expert schedules are unpredictable. While we can usually count on regularly scheduled dog walks and staffing of our playgroups held 2-3 hours per week, our team members gather the vast majority of paid time pet sitting in clients’ homes when clients travel. We can predict what our busiest times will be but on a weekly basis, schedules vary.

Pet experts must be willing to assist our dog trainers as needed, stay overnight in client homes should this be requested (for additional stipend), and work longest days on holidays. Pet experts are paid as employees not as independent contractors.
