Be a host family

It’s the best of both worlds

Why join us?

Because we’re the best at what we do! Our host families love working for us because we offer a way for you to spend time with dogs you love without the commitment of owning one. We take care of the licensing, insurance and bookings so you can focus on the best bit – caring for lovely dogs looking for a home from home while their owners are away. 

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 for a great alternative to owning a dog and an excuse to get out for regular exercise with the support of an established and regulated business behind you then join We Love Pets!

Dog routine at home

What will I do?

You’ll look after one dog or two dogs at a time  while their owner is on holiday. It’s important to welcome the dogs into your family and home and give them lots of cuddles and walks. You’ll keep in touch with your local branch manager so they can provide support. We will handle the admin side of things such as your licence, insurance and taking bookings. 

If you have a welcoming dog-friendly home, a secure garden and time to spare, you could join our team of amazing dog home boarders.



What do I get?

Cuddles and play time with dogs without having to commit to owning one full time. Being a host family offers the best of both worlds! Being part of 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 get your expenses paid, a personal performance plan and enrollment on our PAWs skills-based reward system.



Back to all careers

“When I got my license it really gave me a sense of purpose to be able to give customers the peace of mind that their dog was in a family home and it’s as happy as it can be. It’s really satisfying. They’ve almost become part of the family as we spend lots of time together, and I love the daily walks and making the most of being outdoors on the fresh air.”
