This Aspen Hotel Is Hiring a 'Fur Butler' for Its Resident Dog, Kitty

by Eben Diskin Oct 30, 2019

You don’t have to be a dog-walker to get paid to take care of dogs for a living. At the St. Regis Aspen Resort, the resident dog mascot needs a caretaker, and it might just be your dream job. The ironically named “Kitty” is a Bernese Mountain Dog that serves as the resort’s official hotel dog. As you can imagine, Kitty is one of the hotel’s most important staff, and so requires a handler to attend to his every need.

The “Fur Butler” will be responsible for managing Kitty’s day-to-day duties and overseeing the resort’s Pet Program. This includes handling any Kitty-related guest requests, from daily walks to amenity deliveries, as well as coordinating the monthly Bark ‘n’ Brew events. More than just Kitty, however, the Fur Butler will also be tasked with tending the needs of other pets staying at the hotel.

According to the Facebook job posting, “The Fur Butler’s success is rooted in a deep passion for animals, service, uncompromising standards, the ability to anticipate needs, and impeccable interpersonal skills. A keen interest in photography and social media is encouraged.”

The job is full-time with hourly pay, and to apply, all you need to do is upload a video to Facebook or Instagram with the #kittysfurbutler hashtag. The video should show Kitty what makes you the perfect candidate to work with him. In addition to the video, email your resume to, and cross your fingers.
