Now Hiring: Get Paid $100/Hour To Pet Puppies At Restaurant

FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) - Petting dogs for cold, hard cash? Yes. It's a thing.

MUTTS Canine Cantina, a pup-friendly restaurant and dog park in Dallas and Fort Worth, has announced plans for its first-ever fall internship.

The eatery will hire their 'Puptern' to greet MUTTS members and their pets with adoration.

"The ideal candidate obviously has to be able to be great with dogs... very engaging," said owner Kyle Noonan. "I think bacon in your pocket probably helps too or maybe some puppy chow perfume. But really we are looking for somebody that has a great personality, that's very engaging and ultimately loves animals."

Oh, and the pay for such heavy lifting?

A hundred dollars an hour. That's right -- $100/hr.

The only catch, is the job is weather dependent and only for three to five hours a week during fall and winter.

MUTTS posted the job on their Instagram, garnering quite the response.

Here's what it said: "Show us your puppy petting skills! Do you have what it takes to be the first-ever MUTTS Puptern at our brand new location in Fort Worth? Post a photo or video by 11/12 that shows us your puppy petting skills and use #MUTTSpuptern and tag @muttscantinafor a chance to be hired as our Puptern and get PAID $100 per hour to pet puppies at our new location! Creativity is encouraged-- tell us why you're the best fit for the position in your caption! #MUTTSFortWorth#MUTTSpuptern"
