$127,000 Dog Nanny Job Listing Pulled After a Flood of Applications

Fairfax and Kensington, a British recruitment agency, said it had to pull a listing for a dog nanny with a salary of $127,000 a year because they were flooded with applications. The original posting was seeking someone to live with a family and “ensure the overall well-being, happiness, and safety of the dogs.” The listing said the caretaker would be responsible for feeding, exercising, and training the dogs, as well as for coordinating and overseeing all veterinary appointments. The job also required that the nanny "accompany the dogs during domestic and international travel, ensuring their comfort and safety throughout the journey.” George Dunn of Fairfax and Kensington said this is the first time the company has gotten a listing of this nature and the salary is pretty much unheard of. “Even as a vet, you’d be struggling to earn that amount of money,” said Dunn. After the number of applications jumped from 300 to 2,000 in a few days — thanks to TikTok videos — the company was forced to pull the listing. It's pretty certain that the right dog nanny will be found from the applications currently on hand.
