You could get paid $1,000 to watch six dog movies


Dogs are so much more than just furry couch companions. No one knows this better than Pettable, a company that helps people get permission letters so they can get emotional support animals or psychiatric service dogs.

To celebrate National Love Your Pet Day on February 20, Pettable will pay a lucky “Director of Doggie Flicks“$1,000 to watch six touching dog movies for 48 hours. The movies total about 10 hours of screen time, which equates to $100 per hour, or about $167 per movie. You will also receive an additional stipend to cover movie rental costs and a “survival kit” to make your binge-watch as enjoyable as possible. In return, you’ll have to share your thoughts on the movies in a 1,000-word review that Pettable will post on its blog.

If you’re intimidated at having to choose six dog movies from all the options available, don’t worry: Pettable has already compiled the list, which you can see below.

  • marley and me (2008)
  • A dog’s journey (2019)
  • Because of Winn-Dixie (2005)
  • eight below (2006)
  • the Lady and the Tramp (1955)
  • The Call of the Wild (2020)

Needless to say, you have to like dogs to apply, but you don’t have to own one. Along with filling in a few personal details (including social media handles), the app asks you to explain why you want the gig and talk about how “a pet has had a positive impact on your life. “. Submitting a video explaining why you would make the perfect “Doggie Flicks director” is “not required, but strongly encouraged”.

the application is open now through March 7 at 5 p.m. EST, and any U.S. resident 18 or older can submit one.
