Become a Walker
Calling all dog lovers!
Spot is on the hunt for dog walkers and overnight pet sitters. Our loyal customers and their four-legged friends are absolutely everything to us! Applicants must demonstrate a passion for animals and a devotion to customer service.
Spot was founded by two Calgarians on a mission to make caring for dogs accessible to everyone, especially those with busy schedules. By providing on-demand walks, Spot enable happy and healthy pups and owners.
Spot walks are safe and easy, with insured walkers, GPS walk tracking, and a free key lockbox for home entry. For those who are potty-training their first puppy, constantly stuck working late, busy with travel, or simply looking to spoil their pup with more exercise, Spot puts dog owners minds at ease!
As a Spot Walker, you will set your own hours and will be scheduled to walk dogs in shifts. For most walking locations, we require that you have access to a vehicle to get from walk to walk. Most walks occur within 6km of the walker, but you are not required to transport dogs in your vehicle as walks are all private, single household, door-to-door, and on-leash.
As a Spot Pet Sitter, you will accept or decline requests for overnight pet sitting depending on your availability. Spot offers in- home pet sitting at the customer’s residence and in-home pet boarding at the sitter’s residence. You can choose to offer both, either, or neither.
In addition to the gift of companionship and cuddles with our cute pups, you will be compensated as follows:
|15 min walk||$10|
|30 min walk||$12|
|45 min walk||$14|
|60 min walk||$16|
|+ additional dogs||$3 per dog|
|+ long distance driving||$5-$10 bonus|
|Pet sitting||90% of total booking fee|
We believe “What Goes Around Comes Around”, and we are therefore dedicated to supporting the community that supports us. Spot donates 10¢ for every 10 minutes walked, and over time that adds up. We recently donated $5,000 to the Calgary Humane Society, because the more pets we can help find homes, the more pets we can eventually serve!
If you are interested in joining our community, we would love to hear from you. We are accepting all types of applicants, full-time, part-time, evenings, weekends, walking, sitting, & boarding! We review applications every few weeks, and approved candidates will be interviewed, background checked and insured through our policy before being approved.
