A dog-friendly holiday letting agency has received over 1,000 applications in the first 24 hours after posting its vacancy for ‘Canine critic’ online.
The team at CanineCottages has been inundated with responses, and has received thousands more in the past two weeks, including a Pug who has modelled for NowTV and Virgin Media, and a vegan dog with his own brand of vegan treats.
The successful applicant and their owner will get the chance to review four UK holiday properties, along with a healthy salary of snacks and treats.
The majority of fluffy applicants so far have come from the North of England, with the Midlands coming in second and the South East is in third place. The applicants’ home cities include Stoke, London and Newcastle, and the most popular applicant names are Bella, Poppy and Lola.
Georgina Allen, Marketing Manager at www.caninecottages.co.uk, commented, “It’s great to see that so many dogs from around the UK are grabbing this opportunity with all paws, especially as they are often neglected and excluded from the job market. Dogs have dreams too, guys. The fact that we’ve had professional models and plenty of four-legged entrepreneurs apply shows just how popular this role is, and we think there should be more opportunities out there for dogs in the labour market. We haven’t made any decisions yet; if you want your barking bestie to be in the mix, please do apply – no prior experience needed!”
If you feel this is an opportunity that you and your dog simply can’t miss out on, there is still time to apply before the deadline on Sunday 22 April. Go here.
