SURE, winter stinks. BUT...it's all in the mindset, and you're with dogs who love snow! And: you'll have full view of Chicago Spring weather when it comes!
He or she must be extremely responsible and dedicated, own a reliable bike and smart phone, and must love to interact with both people and their pets. We are looking for enthusiasm, dependability, and pet sitters with an attention to detail.

-You are available Monday THRU Friday, 10am to 4pm (all five days are a must)

Interested in working with us beyond 10am-4pm? We always have additional opportunities for our staff! Accepting later weekday walks (after 4 pm) or weekend walks increases earnings. Overnight housesitting jobs and cat visits do as well.
