Dog Walking & Pet Sitting Jobs in Austin

At See Jane Walk, we care for people’s pets while they work or travel. Our clients trust us and we treat their fur family like our own!

What else do I need to know about joining the See Jane Walk Team?

We are looking for pet lovers who understand and accept the responsibilities we will place on them- our clients depend on us! We do not just play with cute kitties and puppies. We walk dogs when it’s 95-plus degrees or below freezing out. You may have to carry a dog up and down stairs, lift food bags or search under every couch and bed for a cat. We clean up after them, feed them, administer medication and go above and beyond for our clients.

This business is variable and schedules will vary from day to day. We realize working under these flexible and changing conditions can be difficult for some people. This is the nature of our industry and your dependability in this area is crucial. If you enjoy change and variety in the workplace, then this job will be perfect for you!

I can handle that! What else do I need to know?

You will receive ongoing education and training on various aspects of pet care and behavior. You will be trained to handle unexpected situations in pet care and support is a phone call away.

We are looking for mature, responsible people who are reliable, patient, and capable of independent action. We invest time and money into training our employees and require a minimum 4-month commitment… we would rather have you for years!
