There's now a 'pupternship' that's paying $100 per hour for you to play with puppies
HAven't you ever wanted to spend the rest of your life working with cute animals? A lot of people go down the route of becoming vets, but the problem is, that's a really hard job, and it can be pretty gross as well. When you have to deal with sick bunnies and help deliver calves then you might start pining for a comfortable office job instead after a few days of hell. Wouldn't it be great if you could have a job where you just go to play with the animals as if they were your own for a shift?
Well, the good news is that now you can. A bar and restaurant located in Texas called MUTTS Canine Cantina is currently hiring for a 'pupternship.' Whoever nails the interview and lands themselves this fantastic job will then be paid $100 an hour to play with puppies. Wow: I don't think I'd take a single sick day if that was my job. Seriously.
Taking to Instagram, the restaurant wrote in an October 29 post: "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!"
Kyle Noonan, the co-founder of MUTTS Canine Cantina, stated: "We are looking forward to hiring our first ever Puptern. There aren’t many opportunities out there that pay interns to strictly play with dogs all day long. Typically, there may be other responsibilities that come with the job, but not this one. I’d be lying if I said this is going to be one ‘ruff’ internship."
A lot of the comments were pretty enthusiastic about the position. One person wrote: "Moving to Texas so I can get paid to pet dogs. I’m not kidding" while another added "I wish I could, but I'm way up here in Canton, Ohio. I love babysitting and playing with puppies and all animals."
MUTTS Canine Cantina is a cafe which lets dog-owners take their pooches to eat with them, and offers a big menu delicious food, local craft beer, and a private dog park onsite. However, since this can get quite chaotic, they need staff members on hand to keep the doggos occupied. The cafe is accepting applications until November 12, so if you think then this position is for you (and you don't have any crippling allergies) then do yourself a favour and shoot them a resumé. You never know: you might end up with the dog jog of your dreams: good luck!
