Most of my clients are cats of varying temperaments (none aggressive) from ultra shy to super friendly, and dogs that range from the really friendly to the shy/nervous and therefore are reactive in some way (like to other dogs) that make it difficult to be in a group walk, or boarded over vacations. None of my dog clients are people aggressive.

During dog walks, I actively train good behaviors, and do desensitizing and conditioning, all with positive reinforcement and force-free methods.

5-10 hours a week of cat check-ins and training on dog walks (to be an emergency backup), with the very occasional overnight pet sitting job scheduled in.

All positions have the opportunity to grow in hours per week.

ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS FOR ALL POSITIONS:

Must be at least 18 years of age.
Must be able to work with dogs & cats of all sizes and breeds.
Must be willing to learn to care for ALL types of pets...dogs, cats, birds, bunnies, reptiles, etc.
Must have a great attitude and can be a "people person" as needed.
Must have reliable transportation, valid driver's license, clean driving record, and auto insurance.
Must have a smart phone with internet access.
Must be able to accurately follow explicit written and verbal instructions.
Must be able to pass a background check.
Must be willing to travel to most areas of Middle Tennessee.
Absolutely no smoking or vaping, inside or outside of client’s property.

Some good qualities I am looking for are:
Reliable
Flexible
Prompt
Upbeat 
Enthusiastic
Patient
Compassionate
Team player

... because when it comes down to it, I can train you the skills, but I can't train attitude.
