Runners are important to the success of our business and when we look to connect a dog runner or dog walker with one of our clients, we seek only exceptional candidates.
Our runners are serious athletes, many holding or pursuing higher degrees while others work full time elsewhere but with a flexible schedule. All our runners truly care for animals. This is a part-time opportunity and is ideal for those seeking a supplemental income.
