For better or worse, the pandemic has changed the way we work, and in many cases those changes are here to stay. And if you’re looking at a long stretch of working from home, why not consider improving your home-office company with a furry friend?
Whether you’re not quite ready for the full-time commitment of your own new pup but want to get in some practice hours, or you just want to make a little side cash from the comfort of your couch, becoming a dog sitter with Gudog could tick all your boxes.

The advantages of being a Gudog sitter
- It might not seem like hard work, but taking in a dog for the day can help supplement your income! You can choose your own rates and have the option to increase them during peak times such as public holidays
- Looking after a dog will force you to take breaks throughout the day and help divide up your screen time, whether you’re popping out to play fetch in the garden or having a cuddle on the sofa
- Working from home has made our lifestyles even more sedentary, but having a hound around will ensure you keep up your step count and stay fit with daily walks
- Having a dog can be a great way to meet new people – you might just make some great new friends with other dog walkers on your lunchtime trips to the park (socially distanced of course)
- Canine companions can help reduce stress and have a positive impact on both your physical and mental health
- You can choose when you’re available to sit – whether that’s a couple of days a week, Mon-Fri 9-5, or overnight weekend stays
- Got a small house? Don’t worry, you can select what size dogs you’re able to take in – from Dachshunds to Great Danes!
- Get access to specific courses and training in dog care and education from Gudog
So if you love dogs, are spending lots of extra time at home, have experience caring for our favourite four-legged pals, and fancy earning some extra money each month – as well as continuing your doggy education with Gudog courses – becoming a Gudog sitter is the perfect opportunity for you.
