Dog walkers are finding themselves in a difficult position when it comes to finding a job online.
According to a report by Medical News Now, the number of job seekers looking for dog walking gigs has surged in the last year, reaching over 5 million in the first half of 2018.
It is said that the trend has seen employers looking for candidates with a keen interest in working with pets.
But it is not only the dog walkers who are struggling to find suitable jobs online, it is also the pet owners themselves who are in a position to get a foot in the door.
There are a lot of dog walker-owners out there who are working as dog walk and working with their pets, but it can be difficult to navigate all of the various websites and jobs to find the perfect fit for your lifestyle.
The first thing to remember is to not be scared of dogs.
While it may be tempting to have a pet, dogs can still cause some discomfort to the humans that they walk, as well as the pets themselves.
However, it can also be important to be realistic about your dog’s health, since they are naturally affectionate and protective of humans.
So if you find that you are struggling with finding a good dog walking gig, then be aware that it is only the start of finding a career with pets that will be ideal for you.
