Think about what your ideal job would be. While many factors make a job perfect, one common thing you should always be able to say is, “I love my job.” The job you work should be fulfilling and fit your lifestyle. Pet sitting and dog walking jobs have become more popular due to the fun, flexibility and ability to make a difference in the lives of pets in York.
Here is why pet sitting and dog walking is the best pet job in the York region:
What Our Employees Are Saying:
“I smile every day” – Deb
“It is a gift and an honour to be able to spend time in the presence of animals. It touches my soul and brings me utmost happiness.” Lindsay
Your Bosses Will Give You Unconditional Love
If you are a pet lover, there is no doubt that a pet-sitting and dog-walking job would be a good fit. Your bosses will have four legs, plenty of fur, and lots of love to give. You will interact with so many different cats and dogs of all breeds, shapes and sizes. If you don’t have any pets, this is a great way to spend time with animals while you figure out which one will be best for you.
Dog Walking is a Great Way to Stay Active
If you are the kind of person who likes to be active, then this job is perfect for you. Daily physical activity is essential for us and our pets. Check out our blog on the benefits of daily walks for your dog and you! You are always on the go, moving from one house to another to take care of the pets in the Aurora and Newmarket area. Working an office job allows you to get less exercise than you should every day. Since our pets need to be walked every day, no matter the weather conditions (within reason, of course), it ensures that you get outside during the least popular months, like the winter.
Pet Sitting and Dog Walking Provide a Flexible Schedule
Flexibility is important in life, especially for those with children and other responsibilities. Our busy lives make it hard to incorporate everything we want to do in one day. A typical 9-5 job takes up a lot of your time and leaves little room for extracurriculars during the week. Pet sitting and dog walking makes it easy for you to be able to do more with your day. Sometimes, you might not have visits all day long. You may only have a couple in the morning, leaving you with the rest of the day to do whatever you want. Pet sitting and dog walking will certainly allow you to schedule more stuff for yourself during the days and weekends.
