Must Love Fur, LLC is an established and well-loved pet sitting and dog walking company, and we are always seeking exceptional pet care providers to add to our team.

Must Love Fur began as a single provider pet sitting service. When it was time to grow, we tried out the standard technique within the industry for expanding the workforce which is to use Independent Contractors. Quickly this felt like an unfair set up. Not fair to our clients and not fair to the sitters. Although it is a proven strategy to make money, we didn’t believe it honored the value of those providing care nor the desires of our clients. Based on this, we chose a different way. Must Love Fur operates with Licensees. As a team member, Must Love Fur works for you.

 

–Competitive take home pay higher than the industry standard–

–Work one on one with clients with the back up of a team so you can take time off when needed without losing your client base–

"After being out of the workforce for 12 years, I was extremely nervous to go back to having a boss and a rigid schedule. When a friend recommended that I inquire about working for Must Love Fur it sounded brilliant, but I had looked into other pet sitting services in the area and was not inspired. When I met Megan, her genuineness was so comforting. And I learned that working with Must Love Fur was not a boss/employee situation but an opportunity to be supported by a business owner and still have the autonomy of a self-employed person. She takes the worry out of the job services by carrying insurance for the pets we manage, she is immediately available when needed, and has contingencies for any worrisome situations that may arise with pets. We are paid directly by the clients and pay Megan her share, which is lower than industry standard and affords us perks of her established brand, marketing, software, business cards, business email address and phone number, and so much more. She supplies so much peace of mind and as much support as you require. Working with Megan has been a godsend! She is so knowledgeable about animals’ (of all kinds) health, well-being, characteristics and demeanors. She’s also extremely organized, logical and very good at handling and preparing for any given circumstance. She is calm and attentive, responsive and kind. All of these things make her an amazing business owner, coworker, pet parent, and friend. It’s the first job I’ve ever had in my life that I have been able to make a decent wage doing what I love and feeling supported, safe and happy at the same time. I cannot recommend Must Love Fur enough. ❤️"

"Working with Megan Harris and the Must Love Fur team over the last year has exposed me to a group of caring, intelligent, and conscientious individuals who love what they do. Megan's sense of compassion, professionalism, and goal to furnish the best service to clients and their animal companions is shared by all of us. Personally, I truly love spending time with people's pets and knowing that their humans trust me to care for them. Additionally, I know I'm held to a high professional standard and supported not only by Megan, but by fellow team members."

"I first met Megan in the summer of 2013. I had recently moved to Colorado and was trying to get my dog walking business off the ground. Must Love Fur was growing very quickly and she was looking for help to cover all the potential client visits. We started discussing what it would look like to have me join Must Love Fur instead of trying to do everything on my own, the up sides and the down sides. We wanted it to be fair and beneficial for her as the company owner and for me being a dog walker and pet sitter. We discussed numbers, costs, percentages, etc. and I loved how open she was with me on what things like insurance, software, website, etc. costs her as a company and bringing someone else on board. We were building an outline for all the dog walkers that have joined the Must Love Fur team. We wanted to set a high standard for what's expect of the company and each dog walker. Megan has done a great job keeping up on our pricing being competitive, getting the best software available and managing all the clients. Our reputation as a company and a team, speaks volumes since so many of our clients are referrals. More than 4 years later, I still work with Megan and I know it was the BEST decision I could have ever made. My income has almost doubled and I have a wonderful client list, some of which have been with me and Must Love Fur for almost all of the 4 years."
