If you didn't think the perfect job existed, then we may be about to prove you wrong.
That's because one company is paying people £20 an hour to people to look at pictures of dogs.
Raw dog food company ProDog Raw is recruiting ten people in a paid job role, to look at pictures of pups, as part of a study to test whether dogs on social media can alleviate people's stress levels.
The participants will be paid £20 an hour to work remotely, whilst wearing a heart rate monitor to test their stress level.
The company is looking to carry out the study after a recent survey by the brand discovered that the majority (73%) of Brits prefer to see a picture of a dog or cat on their social feed, rather than someone’s selfie.
Successful applicants will be paid £20 an hour over the course of the day-long study.
Each recruit will wear a heart rate monitor whilst going about their normal daily activities, with the exception of taking hourly breaks to look at a series of pre-prepared dog images.
The heart rate data will then be collected and analysed by a doctor to identify any key findings.
Participants will be sent a heart rate monitor to wear for the duration of the study which will measure their stress levels throughout the study period.
To get reliable and accurate readings the company is requiring the participants to have no underlying health conditions which may affect their heart rate including high blood pressure or Arrhythmia.
Furthermore the company also states all applicants to have desk-based jobs where no manual work or activities are required which may increase their heart rates.
No additional skills are required for the study, however applicants must be aged 18 to 60 years old, use social media and have access to a device with internet access.
ProDog Raw will be selecting the ten successful candidates by mid-April, with hopes of conducting the study at the beginning of May.
Heidi Maskelyne, founder of ProDog Raw said: "We as a nation love to share pictures and videos of our four-legged friends, and it turns out we love to see and interact with them too.
"It is scientifically proven that our pets can relieve stress, but there’s not much research on whether simply looking at a picture of a dog can help calm a person’s mood.
"We saw this as a big opportunity to shed some light on the subject and are really excited to see the results, especially when so many people are struggling during these difficult times.
"If you are interested in taking a couple of minutes here and there out of your day to look at puppy pictures and get paid to do so, please apply!"
