Who is this job for?

At Paws Up!, we take pet sitting and dog walking seriously! This is not just a hobby for us.

This job is perfect if you’re looking for supplemental income in a fun, non-office environment. If you are looking for full-time or steady part-time employment, this is not the right job for you. But if you’re looking for a fun part-time job with lots of perks and are able to work when our clients need you, you may be a good fit. You must be extremely dependable, as our clients depend on us to provide care to their precious family members when they travel. We’re dealing with living, breathing pets and you must be committed to ensuring visits occur no matter what!

We work when our clients need us. Because of this, we do not have 9-5 jobs and don't work the same schedule every day. We don’t guarantee schedules, we work early mornings, evenings, weekends, and holidays. We cannot guarantee a set number of hours per week because we make assignments when our clients make reservations.

If this sounds like something you'd be interested in, please click Apply Now!

This job would be perfect for....

College Students, Stay-at-Home Moms or Dads, Teachers, Active Retirees, Personal Trainers, Yoga Instructors, Vet Techs, Kennel Techs, Pet Groomers, etc!
