Join Our Team

Thank you for your interest in working for our award winning team at York Professional Pet Sitting Inc. Our pet sitters and dog walkers must be reliable, dependable people who love and respect ALL animals. Our customers rely on us to care for their pets and their home when they can’t be there. We only hire sitters who will take this job seriously! It can be hard work but it is an incredibly fun and rewarding job for the right person.

So if you love animals, enjoy spending time with them, and want to make some extra money while doing so, this is the job for you. If you can’t commit to six months, are anticipating a move out of the area, or will be seeking a full time job soon, this is not the job for you.

We are a full-service in-home pet sitting company that is growing daily, currently servicing Newmarket, Aurora and surrounding area (see Area Covered Link).

We are looking to hire people for these main types of services:

  • In-home pet sitting: for clients on vacation, we visit their home 1-4 times per day to walk,  feed and care for their pets;
  • Mid-day Dog Walking: one visit in the middle of the day, Monday through Friday (occasionally weekends)  to visit and walk dogs while their owner is at work;
  • Overnight Stays: an extension of in-home pet sitting. We stay overnight in the client’s home with the pet(s), tending to their needs as well as the homes.
