A little about us: Our company began in January 2008 with the goal of offering a professional, reliable service while still keeping that personal touch so that clients can feel comfortable and at ease knowing that their pets are in great hands while they are away.

Please, no calls about this position.  It is not that we do not want to talk to you.   We just don't always work in the office, as we are very hands-on, so calling us to check the status of your application will only result in us asking you to please send an email so we can look up your info while we are in the office.  We are also happy to answer reasonable questions about our company or the position, but please email us at sitters@yourdogsmiles.com instead of a phone call as its much easier for us to respond this way.    If it's a Holiday or the week before a holiday,  you may not hear from us until the holiday is over.   Pet Sitters are very busy while others are away!

Thank you again for applying.
