Do you love dogs? Do you like to be outside? If so, becoming a professional dog walker or pet sitter may be the right fit for you! Enjoy the outdoors rather than sitting behind a desk at a computer, be in charge of your own schedule, and most importantly — spend time with wonderful dogs and cats in an one-on-one setting! What could be better?

We are looking for animal loving professionals in Arlington, Alexandria, and Falls Church.

As a Dog Walker with Fur-Get Me Not you can expect flexible scheduling, paid training, 24/7 support from both our office team as well as our on-call managers— and more.

Most dog walks are between the hours of 10:00am and 4:00pm, typically on a recurring schedule Monday-Friday. We compensate per visits that range from 20 minutes to an hour long. All of our walks are one-on-one so you can develop great relationships with the dogs on your route!

Pet sits start at 30 minutes and are typically before 9am and after 5pm and on weekends. Pet Sitting is a great way to earn some extra money around another job or commitments. Plus you get to care for animals! We also offer an overnight pet sitting service where you would stay at a customers' home while they are away.

If either or both roles sounds exciting to you, APPLY ONLINE at

What We Offer:

  • Flexible scheduling. Dog walking requires consistency (e.g. regular 2-3 hours block in the middle of the day). More flexibility with pet sitting.
  • Paid per visit. Our 30 minute visit is the most popular and starts at $9 per visit. Your visit pay will increase each year on your anniversary.
  • Paid Training, and continued training on complex topics such as dog behavior & learning theory.
  • 401(k) with employer match
  • Additional pay for Holidays
  • Casual Dress Code
  • You keep 100% of the tips you earn
  • Discounts on our Pet Sitting, Dog Daycare, Dog Training, and Dog Boarding services
  • Discount on our retail merchandise including toys, treats, harnesses and more!
  • 24-Hour On-Call support, so you're never alone in the field.
  • Online access to view schedule, care instructions, and any important information for your role
  • You are an employee, not a contractor. Meaning you are covered by Worker's Compensation Insurance, and we handle all payroll taxes so you don't have to! We have a local management and support team that allows you to focus on the fun part, caring for animals.

Basic Requirements:

  • Must be 18 years or older
  • Willing to walk in all weather conditions
  • Regular access to the internet (ability to check e-mail at least once a day)
  • Solid transportation strategy - a car is not required in all areas. Bikes, scooters, etc. work in more urban areas.
