Gen Plus welcomes...Gen Plus!

I recently started a dog walking/pet sitting service in Los Angeles (www.poochbuddies.com) and the business is rapidly expanding. When I started this new line of business, I decided that when I started hiring, in support of all the Boomers and 50 plussers who can't find work, I would specifically look to hire...Boomers and 50+ers!

Now I'm looking for dog walkers and I'd love to be able to help OUR demographic! So, if you are interested in finding out about becoming a dog walker in the San Fernando Valley (from Thousand Oaks to Studio City), sign up for free at Gen Plus (www.genplususa.com), search for Pooch Buddies in the job listings and apply online, or send me an email indicating your interest, along with your resume (info@poochbuddies.com) and your experience with animals.

If you are interested in starting a Pooch Buddies affiliate program in your neighborhood, let me know!

I love your idea to have 50-plus people on your staff! I have a dog and would trust an older person more.

What a great idea. Not only is it fun to walk dogs but great excersice as well. Never know who you will meet while out and about.

And it is working! I have a few people over 50 and a few in their 40's and owners have confidence that the sitter will actually show up! Love 50 Plus!!! It's also easier to apply for a position now...there is a form at www.PoochBuddies.com

Great way to develop buns of steel!
