Jobs

 

Here at The Furry Dogmother, we are always looking for responsible and trustworthy people to deliver pet care in Chelsea, Fulham & South Kensington.  Whether you are interested in one-to-one dog walking, pet feeding, or pet sitting in the owner's home, we would love to hear from you. 

 

If you're wondering what it's like to work with The Furry Dogmother, here are some testimonials from a few of our walkers/sitters:

 

"During the 3 months that I have been working with Liz, I have found it a huge privilege. Liz has made herself available to provide help and support whenever I have needed them. The work has given me an opportunity to get attached to the dogs I walk and to observe their different characters and behaviours. It is both fascinating and rewarding at the same time. I would highly recommend working with Liz."

 

"I have been working with Liz and her team for almost a year now and how time has flown! Working with dogs is a great pleasure and very rewarding. It is also a terrific way of keeping moving and getting plenty of exercise, which is one of the many reasons I applied for this type of work. I enjoy the flexibility and it complements other work I need to fit in around the school calendar."

 

"This job has given me a fantastic working lifestyle. It's allowing me to fulfill my passion for working with animals and 6 months on, I'm still excited to get up and go to work everyday. I can't recommend working with Liz highly enough. She is fully committed to matching the right dog to the right walker and continues her support throughout the entire process. The dogs we walk are fantastic and I feel so lucky to see some of the most beautiful parts of London everyday. I look after the animals as if they were my own, and the rewards from building up relationships with them and the clients are huge. The work is varied, and I love visiting cats to feed and play with them. Its always so much fun and I can't believe I'm getting paid for this. Thank you Liz!"
