Show us your puppy petting skills! Do you have what it takes to be the first-ever MUTTS Puptern at our brand new location in Fort Worth? Post a photo or video by 11/12 that shows us your puppy petting skills and use #MUTTSpuptern and tag @muttscantina for a chance to be hired as our Puptern and get PAID $100 per hour to pet puppies at our new location! Creativity is encouraged– tell us why you’re the best fit for the position in your caption! #MUTTSFortWorth #MUTTSpuptern
They are expecting a lot of applications, so the more creative you can be the better your chances. “Creativity is encouraged– tell us why you’re the best fit for the position in your caption! #MUTTSFortWorth #MUTTSpuptern”. The only requirements are that you are over 18 years old, within driving distance of the Fort Worth location, not allergic to dogs and must love dogs.
The fall internship position will pay you $100 an hour to entertain and play with the MUTTS members’ dogs in the dog park area, while the people relax at the bar and restaurant. You literally play with dogs all day and you get paid!
This is the second location, with the first located in Dallas. The dog-friendly restaurant caters to dog lovers with a beer garden and large off-leash dog park for canines to play. The parents can keep a watchful eye on their fur child while they enjoy their meal.
The dog park has a few rules of its own. The following was stated on their Facebook page:
To use the Dog Park, dogs must be members and be:
• 4 months or older
• Friendly and social around people and other dogs
• Clean, without fleas or ticks
• Current within the calendar year on vaccinations
• Off leash
This dog lover paradise even hosts special events involving dogs like dog-themed movie nights and holiday events. Pupsgiving is coming up, “Join us at MUTTS for on-site adoptions, Thanksgiving costume contests (with prizes!), vendor markets, and a fall photobooth!”
The dream position is only made sweeter because you would be working for a company that also helps shelter dogs. You still have time to apply. Your application video is due by November 12. Management will review all the submissions and privately contact the perfect person. Even if you are not the lucky person selected for the job – it sounds like a fun place to visit with your dog.
