Family cancels US$10k “dog nanny” job posting after overwhelming response

An American family living in the United Kingdom has had to cancel their ad for a live-in dog nanny.

Why you ask…well the family was flooded with applications when it was realised that they were willing to pay US $10,500 a month for the job.

The job was posted by Fairfax and Kensington, a high-end international recruitment agency based in London.

The post went viral after local news outlets recently reported on it with the job applications soaring from 300 to over 2,000 in a few days.

Salary experts note even vets would be struggling to earn that amount of money.

The original job description included providing “unparalleled care and attention” to the owners’ two dogs.

This care and attention entailed feeding, grooming, coordinating vet appointments, vaccinations and health checkups.

The dog nanny would also be required to develop a personalized and individualized exercise routines and schedules for each dog to ensure “they receive the appropriate physical and mental stimulation”.

The chosen candidate would also be required to travel with the dogs, both during domestic and international trips, to ensure “their comfort and safety throughout the journey.”
