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 in a one-on-one setting! What could be better?

As a Dog Walker with Fur-Get Me Not you can expect flexible scheduling, paid training, 24/7 support from both our office staff 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. We compensate at $8.75 per 25-minute visit, and offer two walks per hour to maximize your earning ability and all of our walks are one-on-one so you can develop great relationships with the dogs on your route!

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. Plus you get to care for animals! Each visit is 30 minutes. We also offer an overnight pet sitting service where you would stay at a customers' home while they are away.
