Find A Dog Walking Job In Seattle

Join Team Sniff!

SNIFF Seattle Dog Walkers is Seattle's most successful and exciting dog walking company. Named Best Dog Walker the last six years in a row by KING 5 TV. Dog walkers LOVE their job and make good money for part-time hours! And you help dogs. That's a seriously cool thing.

We're always seeking experienced dog pros to take over great dog walking routes in Seattle and surrounding areas. Our typical route covers a specific area. This opening is for the Columbia City and Beacon Hill neighborhoods.

Take a look at this job

For starters, it's fun! You go to the client's home; you walk their dog. SNIFF specializes in private walks. So, these are peaceful walks around the neighborhood — not chaotic "pack walking." We work every day Monday through Friday from approximately 10:00 or 11:00 am to 2:00 or 3:00 pm, serving mostly clients who get walks every day. It's 18-25 hours of work per week.

How much money can you make?

Starting pay is $16.00 an hour. And you can increase your income by doing overnight dog sitting stays and pet sitting visits. You're a W-2 employee at SNIFF, not a 1099 independent contractor. Working as an employee is better. You're eligible for paid sick leave, and unemployment and workman's comp benefits. If you work as an independent contractor with Wag!, Rover, or many other local dog walking companies, you forfeit and receive none of these basic rights. And we offer direct deposit for your paychecks.

Here's how you apply!

If you're a good fit and are committed to helping our company grow, apply by email only. Include your resume and references, and tell us about your previous work with dogs — and what you can bring to the SNIFF team of professional dog walkers.
