Want to apply for a dog walking job?


Cubicle walls seemingly growing taller and taller? Recycled air choking you at your desk? The man got you down?


Fresh out of college and have no idea what to do with your degree? Studying for a grad degree and need to pay the bills?


Grow up with a family dog but can't have one here in The City? Have a dog but don't have the time to give it the attention and exercise it needs? Simply love our fluffy, shaggy, large and small four legged barking friends?


Then we sure do have an offer for you: walk dogs. Seriously, it'll change your life. Your mind will be opened and your soul unleashed. Keep reading.

We are always looking to meet quality candidates who could effectively lead off leash groups of dogs through parks and beaches with us. Teacher, dog trainer, coach, boot camp instructor, friend, confidant...we wear a lot of hats with these dogs, and sometimes they eat them! If you have what it takes, you're in. So we ask you:

Do you love dogs? 

Athletic, energetic and looking to stay fit? 

Drive a SUV/van/wagon/truck w bed cover? (Sorry no exceptions, unless you buy one)

Know the City's layout? 

Have a cell phone and know how to use it?

Live in SF? (Sorry, no bridge commuters)

Able to commit to a year or more? 

Friendly, outgoing, and customer savvy? 

Have extreme patience?!

Eager to learn? To teach?


If you can rightfully answer "yes" to each and every of the preceding questions, apply now. These are all "must have" qualities to keep our company at the forefront of the industry. Even though these are seemingly basic, they are at the heart of what we do. Be not mistaken, we are top tier and need you to be, too. We won the #1 Dog Walking company in SF and the #2 Dog Walker in the Bay Area in two separate publications. 

Typical shifts last five to six hours Monday-Friday, you start in the late morning and are home by early evening. For us, there is no such thing as working nights, weekends, or holidays. However, good extra income is available to you through boarding, solo walks, and eventually private lessons on your own personal schedule as needed by our clientele. If you can sit dogs you can make thousands in cash. 

Please inquire about pay rates when you apply. We would rather not broadcast our pay on this website. But know that we do pay above the typical starting pay in this industry and we do give salaries to people who stick with us.


If you've made it this far simply describe your interest in a convincing email that grabs our attention as to why you want/would own this position. LIST A FEW REFERENCES. At least one must be a former employer. Your email is your ticket, so craft it well. Professional submissions will be looked at. We look forward to hearing from you.
