    Are you looking for a rewarding job doing something you love?

    Our employees are the best of the best, and they love what they do! We offer a great opportunity for animal lovers to work with pets, while getting great exercise and spending time outdoors.

    Dog Walker pay starts at $15-22 per hour of work with the opportunity for regular raises. We hire as employees, NOT independent contractors. While some companies may advertise higher pay, your taxes are higher with them as a non-employee. This also means that you are covered by our insurance and do not need to purchase your own. We provide paid training, and 100% of tips are yours to keep.

    Fairfax Pet Care is currently accepting applications for part-time employees who meet the following requirements:


    • Must be professional, courteous, responsible, and hard-working
    • Must love animals and have above average knowledge of proper animal care (Vet Techs and those with prior animal training will be considered first)
    • Must be available for a minimum of 2 consecutive hours, every day Monday through Friday, between 10am and 4pm.  These must be the same hours each day.
    • Must commit to 3 months minimum employment
    • Must be able and willing to pass a criminal background check
    • Must be willing to take a pet CPR/First Aid certification course
    • Must be comfortable with large dogs and be able to walk two large dogs at once
