- Friend or family member will care for your pets while you are gone.
- You are available to work evenings, weekends and federal holidays.
- Certain amount of weekly income isn’t necessary (we go to work when our clients request service so there is no guarantee of work/assignments).

- Feel comfortable living in a client’s home and believe in being neat/tidy.

To land this gig, you must LOVE both dogs and cats. A reliable car and cell phone with internet access is necessary so you can drive to/from assignment and send photos to client via text/email. Your assignments take place when clients are on vacation so you may need to be away from home 2-21 nights including federal holidays (Thanksgiving weekend and December 22-January 2 are most popular). Because you will have access to clients’ keys and alarm codes, passing a federal background check is a must.
