Use This Dog Walking Recruiter Next Time You Have To Hire


Joe Latona is a Dog Walking Recruiter that is a motivated and dedicated HR professional, dog walking since 2008, and hiring staff since 2009. He has built award-winning dog walking teams in Chicago and has hired pet care professionals across the United States.

Joe has a deep understanding of the pet care industry. For Joe, the only thing better than walking a dog is improving and growing dog walking teams. His greatest career accomplishment occurred in 2018 when the team he built in Chicago performed over 60,000 individual dog walks.

WalkerScout was inspired by Joe’s time with RPO in the airline industry, as well as his success and passion for working as a Dog Walking Recruiter/hiring manager at Windy City Dog Walkers in Chicago.  Joe saw the opportunity to better serve the pet care industry by creating the first national dog walking RPO. In 2019, Joe began hiring for growing businesses in Illinois, California, Washington, and New York.

  • If your competition in the dog walking business is pushing hard to make their positions appealing to the job seekers, it would be very hard to attract the quality applicants – Joe will tell us what to do in this episode.
