Fur-Get Me Not is a family owned and operated pet care company based in Arlington, VA. We have been caring for animals in the DC Metro area since 2000. We offer daycare, boarding, and dog training services at our main facility in Arlington. We offer in-home dog walking, pet sitting, and dog training services in most areas inside the DC beltway.

Do you love dogs? Do you like to be outside? If so, becoming a professional dog walker or pet sitter may be the right fit for you! Enjoy the outdoors rather than sitting behind a desk at a computer, be in charge of your own schedule, and most importantly spend time with wonderful dogs and cats in an one-on-one setting! What could be better?

We are looking for animal loving professionals in Arlington, Alexandria, Falls Church, and several DC neighborhoods.

As a Dog Walker with Fur-Get Me Not you can expect flexible scheduling, paid training, 24/7 support from both our office team as well as our on-call managers and more.

Most dog walks are between the hours of 10:00am and 4:00pm, typically on a recurring schedule Monday-Friday. Pet sits are typically before 9am and after 5pm and on weekends. Pet Sitting is a great way to earn some extra money around another job or commitments.

Our hourly rates start at $15 with your pay weighted towards 30 minute visits. Each 30 minute pay starts at $9. We also offer 45 minute and 60 minute visits. Your pay increases each year on your anniversary.

If either or both roles sounds exciting to you, APPLY ONLINE at http://www.furgetmenot.com/Employment.htm

WHAT WE OFFER:
- Flexible scheduling. Dog walking requires consistency (e.g. regular 2-3 hours block in the middle of the day). More flexibility with pet sitting.
- Paid Training, and continued training on complex topics such as dog behavior & learning theory.
- 401(k) with employer match
- Additional pay for Holidays
- Casual Dress Code
- You keep 100% of the tips you earn
- 40% off pet care fees for personal use
- Discounts on our Dog Daycare, Dog Training, and Dog Boarding services
- Discount on our retail merchandise including toys, treats, harnesses and more!
- 24-Hour On-Call support, so you're never alone in the field.
- Online access to view schedule, care instructions, and any important information for your role
- You are an employee, not a contractor. Meaning you are covered by Worker's Compensation Insurance, and we handle all payroll taxes so you don't have to! We have a local management and support team that allows you to focus on the fun part, caring for animals.
