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
