Join Our Team
Working with dogs and other pets is one of the most rewarding jobs I can think of. It takes a special person to enrich the lives of other peoples pets and I adore all of my clients. I hope that anybody working for Jake's Adventures pet care would find their days as rewarding as I do. But...
It's Not Just A Walk In The Park!
It takes a confident personality to effectively control and help enrich the lives of the pets we care for.
What we are looking for in a Dog Walker:
They must be reliable - (All our customers dogs are left alone during the day and it is our responsibility not to let them down)
They must be punctual - (Days are structured to make sure all dogs get the best out of the walks and the customers get what they are paying for)
They need to be confident - (We will be walking up to 4 dogs per handler so our dogs get the enrichment they deserve)
A walker needs to be willing to walk dogs in any weather (unless dangerous to do so)
They would need to pick up every dog poop (It is against the law to leave it)
They must have the ability to bond with clients dogs and treat them like they were their own.
Be able to work in a team and be able to thrive working alone with only friendly dogs to talk to.
Having their own transport is a massive bonus as more responsibility can be given straight away.
Above all they must have the passion and integrity to provide a reliable, quality service to all of our customers.
