Join Our Team

A Girl and Your Dog is a thriving and established dog walking company serving San Francisco’s SoMa and Potrero Hill neighborhoods. We are a very close-knit and wonderful team of dog walkers. This job is full time, requires some weekends and holidays, comes with health benefits and pays a living wage for San Francisco.  If you are looking to make dogs a career and want to get more experience in a fun environment from a team of pros, this may be the place for you!

We provide the vehicle and gas for all our doggy transports. Additionally, our company is a certified, city approved training school and can provide official dog walking certification upon completion of our training program (a value of over $600).

We are an old school, service based business. We all like each other and have lots of integrity and loyalty. As fair employers, we care about the well-being of our team members – our employees always come first. Without our awesome team there would be no business and we fully appreciate that.

If you have experience working with dogs as a walker, trainer, vet tech, kennel assistant or related field and would like to learn more about dog behavior and reward based training in a stable job environment, come join our creative team with 20 years in the business. Please be aware that this position is hands-on, physically demanding, and a whirlwind of thinking on your feet. You cuddle dogs and take care of business at the same time!
