Dog walking gum tree & internet adds An insight to dog walking by a reputable professional pet care company

So you want to be a dog walker?

How we accumulate our clients mostly is when they are at their wits end and they have been left in the lurch had their time wasted by so called unprofessional people who think that dog walking would be  fun & easy money. All clients want is a reliable service that will turn up and walk their dogs. Rain hail or shine.You also do not have to mind picking up other peoples dogs poo.

Let me tell you dog walkers earn every cent they make & should be respected. When most people want to pay you to walk a dog it is not because the dogs are easy to walk believe me. Most clients have big pully,unruly dogs who are dog aggressive not trained to leash walk ect.To be pulled around by a big pully or small pully dog trying to control them for a full 1/2  hour or full hour is not fun. We trail and test walkers over a 2 week period.

The drop out rate is incredible. In 5 years I have found 4 regular reliable people who walk dogs all day. This would be out of close to a hundred that we have interviewed and started to trial. Not only have they wasted my time but have wasted the time of my dedicated team who help along the way with the process. To give help them the so called easy making money job of their dreams.

Some of these advertised dog walkers on gum tree and other employment internet sites.

Always make me laugh or smile with yeah right when I see them advertise walking your dog for $5 or $10 per hour  for  2 dogs $12 to $18 and then they offer a price for 3 or 4 not only is this unprofessional as it is against the law in the dog act to walk more than 2 dogs at a time If you are going to work with dogs you should know the council rules and regulations of how many dogs is acceptable to walk at each time.If you want a career in dog walking know your subject.

Not only that but it is also not safe to walk more than 2 dogs at a time not just for the walker but the dogs as well.

Dog walkers have to be alert at all the times & be aware of their environment & surrounds around them and make sure they have a firm hold on the leash at all times. Not only would multiple dogs get tangled up and cause you to trip up, maybe a little dog fight might happen between the dogs you are walking .

How are you going to control this with multiple dogs on hand. If they see a cat and the dog/s bolt out to chase it not only would this pull the walker over and cause injury to the walker more than likely they would let go of the leash and therefore set your dogs free. What a disaster. Not only do they have to get one dog back but 3 or 4 no thanks it’s an impossible ask.

If you are thinking of a career in dog walking go to the dogs home and volunteer to walk dogs for them go through the rules and safety regulations of how to safely walk a dog. Then walk dogs for them 5 to 7 days straight for a month. I always say if you can walk a dogs home dog you can walk anything.

If you have lasted and still love it after a month then you are ready to be a good dedicated dog walker. If you do please call me because you are a rare individual that is for sure and we can do with you on our team.

Not only that dog walking is 7 days a week clients do not want you to just walk week days but weekends too and there is no penalty rates.

It is not a 9 to 5 job some of our walkers start walking in the dark am and finish in the dark pm especially in the winter months,

They run from one job to another all day every day.

You must also provide insurance as once money changes hands for a service of any kind you are liable/sueable for any mishaps or accidents that may occur whilst you are walking clients dogs,These can be dog fights not just by the dog you are walking but some other dog attacking your clients dog,if you lose a dog or a dog gets run over.You must protect yourself and your clients from anything that may arise.

Some clients do contact you to walk their dogs as they are time poor and do not have time to walk or they are elderly or disable,Not all dogs are hard to walk but if you want to be a successful dog walking service you can not pick and choose or you will not make money.

Expenses & tools you need to run a successful dog walking business is insurance,dog leads and haltis,dog coats of various sizes for bad weather,petrol money to get from one job to another,old towels to dry the dogs off.Lots of treats of course all dogs love to get a treat’.

A good hat, sunglasses,2 very good all weather coats/Jackets with a hood,2 pairs of water proof pants, Gloves with good gripping on the palm side a Beanie and most important good and supportive walking shoes.

Also patience lots of patience not just for dogs but starting a business such as dog walking is slow and you may not get a job for months and then only a holiday walk and then nothing else. If you want to start off with clientele asap you need to call us as we can give you work straight away and you do not need to take on the burdens of running a business

The Pro’s of dog walking are

You get to meet lovely people who adore their dogs

You get to meet some awesome dogs and bond with them naughty and good, but the naughty ones are just as lovable as the good you will see, Exercise and fitness.

  RESPECT

So next time you see a professional dog walker out and about walking dogs for a job have a respect for what they do they deserve it and the dogs & owners love them too!

If you are looking for walkers who are dedicated and we have trailed and tested them so you do not have to go through the disappointment. Let us take the worry out of that and do the hard work for you so you may get the dog walker you and your dog deserves!
