Attention, dog lovers.

If you’re passionate about canines then you could be in with a chance of making some serious cash.

A company is offering to pay someone up to £30,000 a year to walk and look after the boss’ four-legged friend.

Law firm Joseph Hage Aaronson LLP, which is based in London , has placed an advert for a personal assistant/dog-walker role which is a ‘predominantly non-desk based’ position.

The business says it’s willing to pay between £20,000 – £30,000 for the right candidate and that the individual should be a ‘self-starter’ and ‘down to earth’.

According to the advert, the firm needs someone to support a member of its senior leadership team.

They are looking for someone with previous experience within an assistant/errand running role as well as experience looking after and walking dogs.

The job description reads: ‘An excellent opportunity has arisen for a Private Assistant Dog Walker role to support one of our senior leadership team.

‘We are looking for a down to earth self-starter who relishes variety and is looking for a predominantly non-desk based role as it will require this person to run errands around London.

The routine of caring for a pet can bring structure and purpose to daily life. Maybe you don’t always want to get out of bed, but your pet wants you to. Isn’t that a good thing?

‘They must be highly organised and well used to an evolving “to do list” and able to keep ahead of what needs doing.’

It adds that duties include (but aren’t limited to) running errands and general personal support, which will include some caring of the principal’s small dog.

The hours are from 9am to 6pm, Monday to Friday – but it’s stressed that applicants should be flexible with their time.

Other perks of the job include a company pension, life insurance and private medical and dental insurance.
