How to become a dog home boarder

Do you love dogs? Do you enjoy walking? Would you like to supplement your income?

If the answer to these questions is Yes, then consider allowing guest dogs into your home for a holiday.

As a carer, you will get to have the love of a dog for a few days or weeks, without the commitment of owning your own dog. You will receive all our support and a small payment for having the dogs to stay.

Being a Paws 4 A Break carer is very rewarding, and allows you to enjoy the company of dogs.

And you can choose which dogs you would like, what size, breed or age etc.
