>Dog Walker: What you need to know before you apply
Above all we want real dog enthusiasts who will enjoy the freedom and fresh air from being active and working outside. It's a great job and brings good health benefits but we do need you to have some good experience of handling dogs using positive methods.
All of our customers require regular support which means we have a stable level of work to offer and reliability is extremely important - after all, we can't be late for those doggies that depend on us each day!
We have a maximum 4 dog policy and our 'Happy Dog Formula' ensures there are good dynaics between the dogs walked together.
Working with Dogknows tends to suit people who want this kind of work as their main daytime job, Monday to Friday, between the hours of 9.30 am and 3.30 pm. This shorter day allows the job to fit alongside other life commitments, such as families/school hours or evening work and hobbies.
There is also flexibility to select the number of dog walks that you can commit to each day. Although there are essentially four, one hour walk times between 8 am and 5 pm, we need regular dog walkers to be available for the mid morning and lunch time walks. Some walkers are happy with one or two walks, others want to walk all day.
We believe in providing excellent training and a full Dogknows induction course is given to all new dog walkers, along with ongoing support. Althogh the work is offered on a self-employed bases, we offer a team approach.
All dog walkers are required to provide their own suitable transport and have an up-to-date DBS check.
Typically payment is £15 to £25 per dog walk, which covers all expenses. A dog walker covering two walks each day can expect to earn £1000 per month.
