We are a busy Pet Care business looking to hire a new employee.   Although this is a part-time job, it is one that requires an employee to be extremely responsible, personable and meticulous with details.  We are looking after people's dogs, and while dog-walking/pet-care seems like an easy and casual business, we want an employee who treats the animals and owners with the proper respect and care.

Aside from that, we have some other requirements, as well.  

Employees should:

-Love dogs of all sizes.  We take care of everything from Pit Bulls to Chihuahuas :)

-Live where the dogs are.  Because we service Marina Del Rey, Venice, Santa Monica, West LA, Mar Vista, Brentwood and Pacific Palisades, we are seeking people who live in one of these cities.  

-Own a car large enough to transport many dogs.  (A 2-door car won't suffice).  A large 4 door sedan can work, but an  

SUV or truck with camper shell is great.  Caution: Your car will get dirty from transporting dogs, so you will need to be ok with that.  Of course, you must have your own car insurance and a clean driving record.

-Own a smart phone that sends/receives texts, emails, and has the ability to take and send pictures

-Be available to work M-F from 8:30am to 2pm. (we can't hire actors who go on daytime auditions).  

-Be in good physical shape.  The job requires you to be hiking many dogs at the same time up steep hills and most pull very hard on leash.  Some of our clients weigh over 100 pounds!  You must be able to control a pack of dogs.  

-Pass a background check. 

-Be at least 24 years old.

-Be able to commit for a year.

-Be able to board dogs at your house or able to house sit at clients' houses is NOT required, but is a plus.  

-Be available nights, weekends and holidays is also NOT required, but a huge plus.  (The more you are available to 

  work, the more money you will make.)

All that said, we are a great company, and are careful in whom we hire because our clients entrust us with their dearly loved pets, and we take that seriously.

This job is perfect for someone who has their afternoons open and has another form of income.  I pay very well, but it is still a  part-time job.  You are an independent contractor and will be 1099'd.

I look forward to hearing from you :)

At Lewis & Bark we believe our job is the greatest in the world!  We're so lucky to receive unconditional love on a daily basis and have loads of fun with the pets in our care.
