March 2023 UPDATE, taking applications for sitters!! MUST be willing and capable of walking dogs that pull. Ability to do overnight care at clients homes a huge plus!! Experienced sitters will be considered first!
We often have openings and we would love to hear from YOU!
• We are in great need of WEEKEND, OVERNIGHT and HOLIDAY help!
We always welcome applications to keep on file when we have openings, particularly for Southside South Bend help, Sunnymede area help and Granger areas!
There really is no other job like pet sitting-it’s amazing, rewarding, fulfilling, so fun, and who wouldn’t love to play with and love on animals all day?!!! But it is also hard work–lots and lots of driving, long days during our busy times, staying on schedule, braving the heat and the cold and snow and rain, lots of last minute changes in your schedule, and sometimes the pets take a bit to warm up to us. But it’s totally worth it, and for the right person, it’s the best job ever-the best kind too, the one you love, the one that MEANS something!
If you are looking to get rich quick or ONLY do this for the money, please look elsewhere. 🙂
This is about making relationships with our HUMAN clients just as much as our furry clients, so you MUST love PEOPLE and be an EXCELLENT communicator!!
