What makes a great Fetcher?
Fetch Walkers come from all walks of life – they’re students, parents, teachers, nurses, and artists. But the one thing they all have in common is their love and experience in working with pets.
Fetch Walkers have a proven track record of being reliable, responsive, punctual, detailed-oriented, and good communicators. They’re outgoing and friendly and enjoy the outdoors. They’re also loving and caring with dogs. Lastly, they’re looking to work for around 45min-5 hours a week on a flexible and/or regular basis.
