Westside Dog Hiker
- $18.00 Piece Rate
- Part Time
- Employer Fairly Likely to Respond
We are a busy, reputable Pet Care business looking to add to our team. Although this is a part-time job, it is one that requires someone 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 to hire someone who treats the animals and owners with the proper respect and care and has fun while doing it!
Aside from that, we have some other requirements, as well.
All team members MUST:
-Love dogs of all sizes. We take care of everything from Pit Bulls to Chihuahuas :)
-Live where the dogs are. Because we service Pacific Palisades, Venice, Santa Monica, West LA, Mar Vista, Brentwood and Marina Del Rey, and the job requires a lot of driving, we are seeking people who live in one of these areas.
-Own a car large enough to transport many dogs. (A 2-door car won't suffice). SUV or truck with camper shell is a must! Caution: Your car will get dirty from transporting dogs, so you will need to be alright 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 8:00am to 3pm. (we unfortunately 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, and be familiar with dog behavior.
-look clean and presentable.
-Answer and return texts/emails in a quick and timely manor.
-Pass a background check.
-Be at least 24 years old.
-Be able to commit for a minimum of 1 year, preferably longer.
-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.)
-Be willing to sign a non-compete.
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 mornings open and has another form of income. We pay very generously, but it is still a part-time job.
If you feel that you are a good fit, please send an email with a cover letter and resume letting us know why you feel you are a good fit for this job, as well as the type of vehicle you drive. Unfortunately applicants without a cover letter will not be considered.
We look forward to hearing from you :)
Pay: $45-$140 per day
