Cover Letter for Dog Walker

A sample cover letter for a job in the pet care industry.

Dear Dog Owner,

I am Jurvis Tufts, I am 20 years-old and a 10 year resident of San Bernardino. I am very much known as the neighborhood Dog walker for several years now. I am applying for the Dog Walker job you posted at the Supermarket bulletin board.

I am not hard to miss on mornings, one may find me on one of my daily routines walking several canines in front of Pope street or on route to the vet for 10am check-ups. As a true dog lover, I have two dog companions - a Labrador and a Mastiff which I very much love and care for. I am very passionate about animals in general (cats, dogs, hamsters, gerbils, fish) and I do my share of volunteer work at the Animal Welfare and Rescue Center at the Community Center.

My main tasks have always been taking pets for walks, playing fetch, feeding, cleaning up after and hydrating pets after long walks. My walk hours are always consistent regardless of undesirable weather patterns. On cold days, I take the dogs to the Rescue center gym where animals are allowed areas for indoor exercises. I am providing such a service as an option during winter time.

My rates are $50 per week, morning and afternoon walks. If my dog walking services interests you, please give me a call at 555-2555. I can also provide references from other pet owners.

It would be a pleasure to meet you and your pet and discuss any dog walking concerns you may have.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Thank you for your time and consideration.


Cover Letter for Pet Sitter

Convincing the pet owner to entrust their precious pooch or kitty can be a real hard task up front. Here's a sample cover letter expressing your honest desire to care for pets.

Hello Pet Owner,

My name is Britney and I am a reliable Pet Sitter. I have adequate experience caring for dogs- large breeds, lap dogs and show dogs. I have received a training certificate from a local dog show breeder specializing in Best-in-Show Poodles. I also volunteer my free hours at a local animal shelter.

I am also capable of handling dogs with special needs which may concern their diet like managing low-shed nutrition meals, vitamins and protein supplements. I also do full service grooming- trims, dematting, wash & brush for proper coat care.

I walk dogs on mornings or on their fixed potty schedules and I responsibly clean up after them (Poop & Scoop) which your neighbors would appreciate.

I am enthusiastic and hard working. I live in the South area, but I can also take jobs up North which would take a 15 minute ride via train.

I am available on weekdays at $20 per hour plus a basic fee of $30 per dog to care for. I can also arrange outdoor weekend walks for your pet (price depends on time and place) and also keep veterinary appointments on schedule.

You may also refer my petsitting services to your friends, so you may avail of my discount rates.

If you're interested to get the best sitter for your pet, please call me at 999-5555.

Thank you

Tandy the Pet Groomer
