Join Our pack!

Shaggy Dog is always looking for passionate, caring, animal-loving AND people-loving individuals to join the pack!

We are VERY animal and pet parent oriented; so, you must love both the clients and their pet children. We have exceptional standards of care and communication with the clients and the team and any applicants must possess both these qualities. If you think you can meet the company’s high standards of care, protect the health and welfare of the many pet children in our care, give an exceptionally fun time to the pets, and offer great communication to their parents we’d love to hear from you!


Learn more about our team member code of ethics here.

We are a local business so all dog walkers/pet sitters must live in Kingston, Amherstview or a surrounding area within a 30-minute drive of Kingston, Ontario.

If you think you are a good fit with the above, please fill out an application below. We will be in touch shortly.
