Permanent / part time

Leicestershire Dogs are looking for committed foster carers not ones that want to look after a dog, and then they disappear not being able to look after another dog or just want to use Leicestershire Dogs as a stepping stone. If you are just looking for something to fill a gap until your employer gives you workfrom home please leave now and go to our Telesales vacancy by clicking button on the right.


All dogs in youre care must have issues corrected in a humane way such as jumping up, snatching food from hands, aggression towards other pets etc to increase there chance of being re-homed when vied by prospects


I  would appreciate regular reports on how the dog are doing at least 2-3 times a week, how it are in general, whether it's responding too basic training, easy to handle or not and the home you think would be suitable or unsuitable etc
