Be a dog walker
It’s the best job in the world
Why work for us?
Because we’re the best at what we do! Our dog walkers love working for us because we put the welfare of our walkers and pets first. With us, you’ll receive full training including pet first aid, plus there’s plenty of opportunity to learn more about pet care and animal behaviour.
We’ve got years of experience taking care of other people’s pets. We’re fully licenced, insured and DBS check all of our staff. Our customers choose us because of our reputation for quality care and safety.
If you’re looking to get out and about (and paid) to walk dogs in your local beauty spots with the support of an established and regulated business behind you then work for We Love Pets!
What will my job entail?
Collect dogs from customer’s homes and drive them to the local open space for playtime, exercise, sniffing time and a few treats. Take a few photos of your dogs having fun! Drop the dogs back, check them over and towel down if they’re wet. Give the dogs some fresh water and let your manager know how the walk went.
You’ll need you to be available to work through the week during the day, and be comfortable around dogs including lifting and handling, and supervising. You need to be willing to carry out training and work as part of a team.
What do I get?
Fresh air and daily exercise with some top four-legged pals for a start! Working for We Love Pets means you’ll join a pet-loving family and be part of a caring and supportive nationwide network.
We really value our team and offer lots of training and development opportunities, both within your local branch and online via our training portal, We Love Training. You’ll also receive a six-monthly appraisal along with regular one-to-ones, a personal performance plan and enrollment on our PAWs skills-based reward system.
Back to all careers
I started at We Love Pets Chorley in January 2019 and haven’t looked back. I wake up on a Monday morning excited to start my day. I really don’t class my job as work because I’m doing it more for myself and my love for animals, the pay is just a bonus!
Working for We Love Pets has changed my life; my mind is clear, I’m fitter and I sleep well at night. I never get stressed which I often did before.
I’ve got great customer relationships with all my dog owners and to be really honest I look forward to walking each of my dogs as they all have different personalities – I don’t favour one over another, honest!
The welcome I get when turning up to my dog’s houses makes me so happy and is what makes this the most rewarding job ever. I didn’t think a job could make you this happy. My husband and family said I should have done it years ago.
A good dog walker needs to love and understand a dog, be alert at all times, be friendly and just enjoy what you’re doing!
