Dog walking for We Love Pets

Dog Walking

 

How does dog walking work? 

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 wet. Give the dogs some freshwater and let your manager know how the walk went.

Case study

Anabelle from our Marlborough branch 

Anabelle has been a We Love Pets dog walker since 2015 for our Hungerford and Marlborough team.

Wet weather isn’t a concern for Anabelle after some fabulously exciting work in the past as a geologist.

"Just make sure you always have a full set of waterproofs and dress for all weathers - you will get wet, but you'll soon get used to it if you're not already."

Dogs are a sure way to attract everyone’s attention, so unless you go off the beaten track every walk, you’re guaranteed to get some lovely comments and smiles from the general public.

"I was enjoying a walk with my own dog, Cassine (German Shepherd) and a regular, Ruby who’s a Rottweiler, when someone shouted from a van ‘Blimey no one’s going to mug you with those two’ – I wasn’t going to disagree, but as we only ever walk non-aggressive dogs, it was funny!"

Anabelle’s average day is around 2.5-4 hours long working for We Love Pets, so she’s able to combine it with her love for the outdoors and spending time horse riding and gardening, which probably explains why she’s more than happy being outdoors every day.

"Dog walking could be lonely if you’re not used to time on your own, but our branch managers make sure there are regular occasions to meet up socially, and you’ll also work closely with colleagues during handovers, exchanging keys and it’s inevitable you’ll bump into each other when out with the dogs".

We asked Anabelle what skills she thinks a prospective dog walker would need, other than loving pets:

"Great organisational skills, so you can arrive to your destination when expected and pass on important details between dog walkers, for periods of cover during holidays."
