Pet Care Specialist / Dog Walker - Lincoln Park and Lakeview

  • Chicago, IL
  • Full-time

Company Description

Anyone can walk dogs. And every dog walker in Chicago claims to love animals.  But we think a real passion for pets should translate into better care. Green Paws Chicago (http://www.greenpawschicago.com) has two simple missions:  To provide every pet the love and care they deserve, and to be socially responsible in ways that improve both the pet community and the world at large.  We have emerged as one of the fastest growing pet care companies in Chicago, and it's no wonder.  We take better care of our clients and their pets than anyone else in the business, and our leadership has a proven track record of building successful, fast-growing companies.

Job Description

We are looking for driven pet care professionals to provide walking, sitting and other pet care services to our clients in the Lincoln Park and Lakeview neighborhoods.  We are a socially responsible company, and are looking for people who share a commitment to the environment and the wellbeing of animals.   This is a permanent position with lots of room for advancement - so please only apply if this is what you want to do for the long term.

 

The job will involve walks primarily in the 10 AM-4 PM time frame, with occasional evening and weekend walks available, as well as overnights in clients' homes or in your own (if you're allowed).   We also offer extra care for pets such as de-shedding services, flea/tick medication application, and teeth brushing, which provide opportunities for higher pay, and we encourage clients to have regular daily schedules so that pay is predictable. 

Ideal candidates will be able to work independently and enjoy being outside and on their bikes in all types of weather.  Candidates must have a reliable bike and an iPhone or Android phone.

In your application, please include why you would be a great fit with us, and tell us about your favorite pet (current or former). 

Qualifications

Must love animals!  (Hopefully that one is obvious)

 

We don't care about your degree, or if you've been a dog walker before.  What we do want is someone who is hard working, independent, trustworthy and fanatical about pets!

 

Please only apply if you are comfortable biking in Chicago in all kinds of weather.
