If you own a dog, then you know what it's like before going on holiday, for a weekend away, an overnight stay or even a long day at work! You have to find a sitter for the dog. Luckily, the dog-walking/sitting career is blossoming, and there are many companies that offer such services!
The company BorrowMyDoggy is one of many affordable dog-walking and dog care services in the UK. It offers owners the opportunity to get in touch with ‘borrowers’ in order to arrange care for their dog when they are not around.
Joseph Hage Aaronson LLP, based in Holborn, has only recently raised a demand for a new employee who would, among other things, be required to look after the Big Cheese’s dog.
According to the Mail Online, the advert reads, “An excellent opportunity has arisen for a Private Assistant Dog Walker role to support one of our senior leadership team. We are looking for a down to earth self-starter who relishes variety and is looking for a predominantly non-desk based role as it will require this person to run errands around London.”
Duties are to include "running errands and general personal support, which will include some caring of the principal's small dog."
The position may require the successful incumbent to be good at things other than dog walking, but on the face of it, it would seem that someone who is ‘good’ with dogs may be in with a shout.
