Did you know Jarvis Dog Boarding is the driving force behind a new movement in the pet care industry? It’s called #PupTheRevolution and this is why it was created. We want to make dog and animal care businesses better for everyone, including the professionals who work so hard to maintain unrivalled animal welfare standards.
Our customers know the true value of a trusted, trained and conscientious dog sitter. Our rates reflect the standard of service we provide as well as the standard of our dog sitters. All of our customers want the very best for their dogs, and so do we.
Jarvis Dog Boarding is not just flying a flag for the welfare of animals, we also want to raise the standard of work for talented dog-care professionals. You see, we know that there aren’t many opportunities for people to work with animals these days, and maintaining a business can be really hard work. You deserve to shine in a working environment where you have a healthy stream of customers, professional training, a friendly professional network and someone looking out for your wellbeing while you handle the dog-side of things.
