Mid-day Dog Walker (Part-Time)
We’re currently hiring for a Part-Time Mid-day Dog Walker position. The ideal candidate will be available at least 5 weekdays a week (Monday – Friday) between the hours of 11 am – 3 pm.
Between the hours of 11 am – 3 pm you will travel to our clients’ homes around Charleston to provide dog walking, exercise, and love to dogs. We spend our days outside walking energetic dogs (both big and small), so you need to be ok getting a little sweaty, dirty and hairy, and not be opposed to dog kisses.
After every visit, we send a visit journal and photos to the pet parents so they can see how much fun their pet had with us.
We take professional dog walking and pet care seriously and always work to be the best professional pet care team in Charleston. It’s a serious job, but is also the perfect way to get paid to exercise and play with dogs and cats! For many of our staff, they say it is the best job ever!
You need to be able to assist with pet visits in client homes in the areas of James Island, downtown Charleston, Johns Island, Avondale, and Folly Beach.
We do require that our employees live in one of our service areas (James Island, downtown Charleston, Johns Island, Avondale, or Folly Beach). This position requires a lot of driving and we’ve found if you live outside of our service area you probably won’t make enough money for it to be financially beneficial, as you are not reimbursed for gas or travel time.
Our Mid-Day Dog Walkers can make up to $800 a month visiting and exercising dogs!
Pay is per visit and we do not offer any benefits or reimbursement for gas/travel. All new employees start out slowly with a very minimal schedule (typically less than 5 visits a week). As you feel comfortable with more visits, we slowly will build up your schedule.
Our staff members need to be flexible with working a different schedule each day, as our client’s needs frequently change. All new employees start out slowly with a very minimal schedule (typically less than 5 visits a week). As you feel comfortable with more visits, we slowly will build up your schedule.
For our Mid-day Dog Walker position, most of your visits will fall between 11 am – 3 pm. The more availability you have, the more visits you could be assigned.
