The online pet gift shop Yappy.com is looking for a chief puppy officer to look after the team’s dogs while they work.
And if that doesn’t sound dreamy enough, the role comes with a prorated £ 24,000 salary.
According to the website, the chief puppy officer’s duties include making sure the pups are “happy, entertained, comfortable, and safe at all times,” working with the dogs to do important research on new items and products, and to give the dogs the best offering toys, treats, play, and relaxation as needed – sounds pretty good to me.
