Back To School: Make Money As A Dog Walker

The beginning of September means the start of a new year at university, as thousands of students across the country gear up to head away for another year of 9am starts, mid-week nights out and the long awaited return of the student loan.

Uni years are the best of your life, as you’re finally away from your parents’ lingering gaze and free to be and do whatever you want, when you want…

…until the money runs out, that is.

This is the time of year that many students begin to look for a part time job to help subsidise their excessive lifestyle… Well, look no further…

What are the benefits of becoming a dog walker with Tailster?

Being a dog walker with Tailster comes with a whole host of benefits.

Not only will you get paid for spending time with dogs – which is, obviously, the best part of the whole thing – we also provide you with plenty of other cover to help you along the way.

Tailster acts as a social media platform for dog owners and carers, exposing you to a whole host of owners who are looking for your service. In this respect, it takes away the work of promoting yourself, meaning that you can get up and running much faster than usual.

We take a 20% commission from each booking which covers the cost of our insurance cover. This means that you’ll always be covered for any accidents that may take place during the walk, negating your need to provide your own insurance cover.

Finally, our customer service team are available via email or over the phone on 0208 004 0860 Monday – Friday 9am – 6pm to answer any queries that you may have or assist with any problems that may be developing.

For more information, head over to our FAQ section and, if you have any further queries, don’t hesitate to give us a quick call.

We hope to hear from you soon!
