Professional Pet Lovers Apply 

Your Dog Smiles is always looking for friendly, professional, reliable pet sitters to join our quickly growing team.

If you enjoy spending your days being active outdoors and can handle varying weather conditions, exercise and a flexible schedule that allows you to pick your availability.   Then working as a professional pet sitter spending your days working with some of the best furry and sometimes not so furry friends you will find, this could be the best career you will ever have.  

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.

What we are looking for: We are looking for mid-day dog walkers, evening/weekend dog walkers, and overnight pet sitters.  Descriptions below:

  • Mid-day dog walkers.  A mid-day dog walker should be available Monday through Friday between the hours of 10 am and 4 pm, to provide a walk while owners are away.   Your hours should be consistent each day (available at the same time each day Monday through Friday).

  • Am, Evening and Weekend Pet Sitters: Visits in the am, afternoon, pm and bedtime.  If you do not have consistent mid-day availability this would be a good option for you.

  • Overnight Pet Sitters stay overnight in the client’s home from 9 pm to 7 am or 10 pm-6 am with morning and evening feedings/walks.   The client expects the sitter to stay at the home for the entire 8 or 10 hours straight depending on the client's needs and requests.

  • Summer/Holiday Help.   We have a limited number of spaces for summer and holiday help. 

  • Anytime Sitters.  If you do not have a consistent schedule but would like to fill in for others.

 Pay is based on the job.

Basic Qualifications, Requirements, and Things to Consider when applying:

  • You must genuinely care about the health, care and well being of animals.

  • You must be able to handle varying sizes and breeds of dogs. Some jump, pull and love all over you with their big wet tongues.

  • You must be able to walk dogs in various weather conditions including heat, cold, rain, snow and more. 

  • Able to self manage yourself, be honest, be responsible and be reliable.

  • You will have to submit a background check. 

  • You must be 18 years of age or older.

  • You must have dependable transportation to move from job to job.  

  • Great communication skills as we communicate with you and with our clients DAILY through notes, emails, text messages and phone calls.

  • Attention to details, attention to direction, organization and time management.

  • Sorry, your kids and pets may not join you on your visits.

  • You must own a smartphone.  (i.e. Android or iPhone)

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 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.
