Working with ProspectBArk is a job unlike any other. It is not enough to just love animals, or have grown up with dogs, or to live with cats. No other job combines three separate skill-sets into such an enjoyable and financially stable job: Love for Animals, People Skills, and Technological Fluency.

Love for Animals

  • It goes without saying that you must love animals. We know all our furry charges by name, we become a part of their families. When we are with the cats and dogs, we look out for their safety and happiness above all else. We do not chat on the phone while we’re walking dogs, we don’t listen to our headphones out on the street. Nothing distracts our attention from the pups and kitties in our care.
  • You have a LOT of experience with cats and dogs. Shelter volunteer, cat TNR expert, grew up with dogs, etc. If you are someone who stops to pet all the dogs on the street, if you talk to your cat more than you care to admit, if you’ve volunteered at BARC or Animal Haven, or any of the many wonderful places where you can donate your efforts to help animals in need, this is the job for you.

People Skills

  • Though it’s the animals we work with, it’s their people we work for. You must communicate with people very well. Professional, prompt, friendly and sincere communication is the fuel that keeps everything running. The ability to understand what our clients need is crucial. They are entrusting us with their beloved and most vulnerable family members – their pets. Hiring a dog walker or pet-sitter is an act of trust. You must be able to instill confidence in your work, and in your character.

Technological Fluency

  • We require a smartphone with internet, email and picture-text capability. You will be trained to use our software, booking emails, scheduling system and phone app.  It’s all fairly simple, and will make your route flow smoothly each day. We expect emails, phone calls and texts to be returned quickly, and we require a basic proficiency with computers, documents and the internet.


    In addition to these three elements, of course all applicants must be:

  • US citizens or legally authorized to work in the US for at least the next 12 months
  • over 21 years of age
  • able to pass a background check
  • local full-time residents of NYC
  • able to receive payment “on the books” (sorry, we do not pay “cash” or “under the table”)
  • able to commit to this position for 12 months from date of hire (M-F applicants) or 6 months from date of hire (Weekend Warriors)
